On November 5, the country's biggest and brightest names in the modeling industry gathered for a night of glitz and glam at The Professional Models Association of the Philippines's (PMAP) 25th anniversary. Dubbed Twenty Five Years of PMAP: The Grand Reunion, the swanky soiree paid tribute to the founding members of the organization, as well as introduced the sexy new breed of models ruling the local and international scene today.
A photo exhibit, shot by esteemed photographers Jun De Leon, Jim De Leon, and Miguel De Leon, showcased the beauty of Filipinas across generations. Models like Tweetie De Leon-Gonzales, Apples Aberin, Wilma Doesnt, Rissa Mananquil-Trillo, Bubbles Paraiso, and Ornussa Cadness, among others, all took part in the glamorous photo display.
Later, PMAP's up-and-coming models sashayed down the catwalk wearing ultra-feminine creations by young designers like Eric delos Santos, Jerome Salaya Ang, Pablo Cabahug, Joel Escober, Chris Diaz, Maureen Disini, Vania Romoff, Christel Yulo, Martin Bautista, Mark Tamayo, and Niño Angeles.
But what's a fashion shindig without special awards? Marriott Hotel Manila awarded stylish duo Paolo and Rissa Trillo couple of the night; Marco Lobregat and Jing Monis won Belvedere's Most Stylish Man and Most Outstanding Man of the Evening, respectively; and one of this year's Cosmo 8 Sexiest Models Danica Magpantay bagged Tresemme's Most Fashionable Female.
