Congratulations are in order for the male and female winners of Supermodel Philippines 2012. May Ann Naguit and Gerard Go walked the runway and outlasted 15 other candidates to become the best of the lot. Their selection also coincided with the start of Philippine Fashion Week which began yesterday and will last until October 29.
Many thanks to Jonas Yu of Critical Beauty (for the photo above) who covered the event.

Who will follow the footsteps of reigning Supermodel of the World winner Danica Magpantay? Click on the image above to go straight to her Ford Models' Portfolio in NYC.
Tomorrow night, one lucky girl will be named as the new Ford Models’ Supermodel of the World Philippines. With the selection coinciding with the Philippine Fashion Week at the SMX Convention Center, the winner will definitely get her hands full in training while being introduced to the bigwigs and upstarts of the local fashion industry. Of course, the main objective is to build her portfolio to be sent to Ford Models in New York City. Hopefully, another Filipina will come close to, if not equal, Danica Magpantay’s victory earlier this year. The Philippines is on a roll with the added runner-up placements of Charlene Almarvez in 2010 and Charo Ronquillo in 2006 as well.
Joey and Audie Espino are behind the local Supermodel search.
If you want to watch the live finals, try your luck if you can score a ticket at the SMX Convention Center. The show will promptly start at 8:30PM (Function Room 4).
