“I think the sexiest thing on anybody is intelligence. I respect somebody who has a brain and wants to use it more than a pretty face and status.” – Sophia Bush
Miss Universe Philippines 2020 candidate Pauline Amelinckx of Bohol is definitely endowed with the natural beauty and glow that compliment her innate smarts and gift of gab.

When the new pictorial of Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 landed in my inbox (thanks to my dear friend Voltaire Tayag of Rappler), I immediately thought of using the popular phrase “…a rose by any other name…” from William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet as inspiration for this blog entry. This wonderful lady – who is always a joy to work with – decided to use Teresita as her public name right before, during and after her successful stint in Bolivia. But somehow, the showbiz affiliation is so strong that the popular nickname of “Win-Wyn” just could not be erased that easily from the minds of everyone.
Call her Teresita. Or call her Win-Wyn. She will always be our Reina Hispanoamericana 2017.
This latest photoshoot was a special one because our Queen herself had a say in every shot taken. The overall atmosphere, though, was fun and relaxed that everyone in the studio enjoyed doing all the layouts and did not mind the time at all.
Below are the other stills from the said shoot. Here are the credits first:

Michele on the cover of Gadgets Magazine
Bb. Pilipinas Globe 2018 Michele Gumabao would have easily qualified as member of the country’s Women’s Volleyball team currently competing in Jakarta-Palembang, Indonesia for the 18th Asian Games. But being one of our crowned national titleholders, she had to choose the responsibility of representing the Philippines on another front.
The Miss Globe 2018 will happen on Albania come October and the preparations are overlapping with the highly rigorous trainings for the Asiad. She simply where her priorities are aligned this year.
In the meantime, below are photos of Michele taken right after her makeup session with Carissa Cielo Medved amd before the pictorial for Metro.Style.
