We all know that Miss Universe 2012 1st Runner-Up Janine Tugonon is presently fulfilling work commitments in the USA and still on the hunt for further professional growth as a fashion or photographic model. So when popular photographer Raymond Saldana uploaded his latest photos of the former Miss Universe Philippines, it makes me ask the question – why do some beauty queens become more ravishing after they complete their reigns? Could it be due to the fact that stress levels have gone down to normal? Or perhaps, it’s because they have already collected a wealth of learning experiences that has allowed the person to formulate a more effective strategy to survive in the real world outside of tiaras, platform heels and criss-cross walks?
Whichever the reason is behind Janine’s more commanding presence nowadays, we can only give her kudos for an impressive physical upkeep long after nearly capturing the Philippines’ 3rd Miss Universe crown. 😀
