Fun, Fearless Female Awards Night 2011

The stars came out and shone brightly at the second annual Cosmo Fun, Fearless Female Awards Night! Check out exclusive event highlights!

It was a night of glamour and inspiration as ten amazing women were honored by Cosmo at the second annual Fun, Fearless Female Awards Night. A flock of our friends from the press were on hand to witness the ceremony which took place last night, May 5, at the Eastwood Richmonde Hotel, where we celebrated Cosmopolitan Philippines' 14th anniversary with a grand party!

Among our celebrity guests were seven of the ten awardees. Our May 2011 cover girl, the always beautiful Venus Raj, was the first to arrive backstage, looking statuesque and summer-ready. The next arrival was singing sensation Frencheska Farr, looking fresh and joyous, followed by entrepreneur Cristalle Belo Henares and star athlete Ani De Leon, who chatted animatedly with one another.

As the program began, guests were served cocktails by The Bar and treated to a video presentation outlining the concept behind the Fun, Fearless Female Awards: To recognize the inspiring achievements of women from different fields who have stepped out of their confort zones, overcame obstacles, and displayed enormous talent and strength.

One by one, each awardee was introduced. One entrance was particularly moving: that of role model Raissa Laurel, a victim of last year's Bar Exam blast. She made her way onstage with the help of a cane and her prosthetic legs, accepting her stiletto-shaped award together with the other girls. Fellow awardees Anne Curtis and DJ Andi Manzano arrived later on in the ceremony, to the delight of the audience.

The girls readily answered inquiries from the press in the Q&A portion of the program, during which they discussed the award and how they feel about being named the top Fun, Fearless Females. They shared stories about themselves and their struggles, as well as their hopes for the future. It was an enjoyable night spent in the company of so many admirable women, and we know you, too, will be inspired by their tales.

Three of the 10 awardees--KC Concepcion, Tricia Gosingtian, and Liz Uy--weren't able to attend the awards. To see all awardees, check out this video of all the awardees that Cosmo.ph showed at the glitzy program.

Until next year, keep on being fun and fearless, girls!
