Ben Chan (in black coat) and some of his celebrity topbillers for this year's Bench Denim and Underwear Show
Last Friday, an exclusive preview was held for the Press to drum up “The Naked Truth”, the Bench Denim and Underwear Show scheduled on September 19 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
Present were some of the celebrities who will walk the ramp wearing the latest collection in the clothing brand’s OJ Denim and Bench Body lines. The likes of actors Tom Rodriguez, Dennis Trillo, Martin del Rosario and Dominic Roque graced the event, as well as singer and indie performer Markki Stroem, athlete Arnold Van Opstal, international model Allison Harvard and Miss World 1st Runner-up Gwen Ruais.
The show will try to raise the bar for 2014 by pushing the envelope in the show’s concept and revelations. And it would be an understatement to say that this is going to be the hottest ticket to get a hold of.
So if I were you, I’d start shopping (splurging if you will) at Bench to receive an invite. 😉

Arnold van Opstal during his Cosmo photo shoot.
Yes, just who is Arnold van Opstal? Well, the guy happens to be a member of the La Salle Green Archers and the tallest one at that. He plays Center. Standing at 6’7″, this tri-racial (consisting of Dutch/German/Filipino) athlete and student effortlessly stands out in all his basketball games due to sheer height, but should also get credits for his praiseworthy basketball skills.
Popularly called “AVO”, this 20 year-old hottie is all set to conquer the modelling world outside of UAAP duties for his alma mater. He had his first photoshoot as a Cosmo Hunk (click HERE to check it out) and should fast become a familiar face sooner than you think. Watch out for more about the guy in the months to come! 😉
