Look who’s modeling for the online shop of Hollister.com – it’s former Bb. Pilipinas Universe and Miss Universe 2012 1st Runner-Up Janine Tugonon wearing the latest casual dresses/get-ups of the popular brand.
Life as a model in the US is never easy (it actually is not most anywhere else) so I commend Janine for sustaining her chosen post-pageant career. And so, her shelf life in the public eye continues.

Miss Universe 2012 1st Runner-Up Janine Tugonon has added another achievement in her US-based modeling career. She appears as one of the four leads in the latest VSPink (Victoria’s Secret Pink) advertisement which you can watch below.

Janine is happy with life in the US of A. The breaks may not be as abundant as pageant fans and followers would expect, but she is making strides that show her determination to make it where the competition is tougher than nailing a Miss Universe crown in real-life terms.
Keep it up, Janine!

Now back to my hot cup of Sunday morning coffee. 😉
Janine Tugonon’s latest from Raymond Saldaña
Today’s Senti feature is on Miss Universe 2015 1st Runner-Up Janine Mari Tugonon who is a recent Manila visitor. Proof is the latest photoshoot she had with ace photographer Raymond Saldaña (see photo above
) which has just been uploaded awhile back.
Tomorrow morning in Manila, Miss Universe 2015 will be crowned. Will Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach be the one? Hard to make a solid answer for now.
In the meantime, let us watch the video by Anthony M Gomes which is a tribute of sorts to the Binibini who very narrowly missed the crown against eventual winner Olivia Culpo also in Las Vegas exactly three years ago today. 🙂

Janine Tugonon is fiery hot on the pages of GEV Magazine
Suddenly, here’s Miss Universe 2012 1st Runner-Up Janine Tugonon wowing us all again with her latest pictorial for GEV (Gastronomique En Vogue) Magazine
. In these photographs, she is seen wearing the designs of Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, Anna Cecilia Ortega and Trina Turk for H&M.
This pictorial is proof that Janine is indeed doing well in the US. Her portfolio is literally getting filled up from end to end. And I couldn’t wait to see what her next surprise will be.

The images in this post are evidences that Janine Tugonon is doing well as a model in the US.
Aside from being on the cover of the March 2015 issue of Gia’s, she is also becoming a photographic model for some upcoming designers, like Brooklyn native Nathaniel White (see all the black-and-white shots on the left and below).
Our Miss Universe 2012 1st Runner-Up is indeed on the rise. And it’s only going to be uphill from hereon.
Now before wrapping up, here’s the message she posted upon learning who won as Miss Universe Philippines 2015:
“Weeeeeee !!! Congrats Pia Alonzo and to my Aces and Queens family. I believe in you … That face. That intellect. And that class. See you in #MissUniverse !!! #justwokeupandallididwasfindoutthewinners :P”

Olivia being congratulated by the other delegates
Above is the video of the TV interview Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo gave to the station in her home state of Rhode Island several hours after winning the crown in Las Vegas last December 19, 2012 – six nights before Christmas Day.
Not a lot can claim of getting the biggest beauty title as a Christmas gift. It’s a rarity. And Olivia completing the triple crown route from Miss Rhode Island to Miss USA all the way to Miss Universe makes it all the more fulfilling.

Olivia can look back at her reign with a big smile on her face, despite the small controversies that nagged her during. She is now more focused on her self and the love life she shares with boyfriend Nick Jonas.
So let’s complete the throwback day for Olivia by watching a year in her life as Miss Universe 2012.
Merry Christmas, dear readers! 😀

Janine is glad that her permanent residency papers in the US are now final
Miss Universe 2012 1st Runner-Up Janine Tugonon is now a US Green Card holder. And she proudly displayed her permanent residency papers (left photo
) in her Instagram account just recently.
With this development, she can already go full steam ahead with all her career plans, including a possible break into Hollywood movies (she got callbacks from Directors Joel and Ethan Coen) which could up her market value even more. Getting the Wells Fargo and Walmart gigs also added up to her portfolio.
Fans and followers of Janine in the Philippines shouldn’t worry about not seeing her anymore. In fact, she promises to schedule trips back to Manila whenever schedule permits. 🙂
