Miss Universe Philippines is in El Nido, Palawan at the moment to do a feature shoot in Lagen Island Resort for Inquirer Lifestyle. In between takes, she went swimming and snorkeling and got crazy sunburnt as well. She is definitely enjoying the workcation mode.
Watch out for the final edits soon! In the meantime, let’s watch a video of our Queen – where she got to show off some of her singing skills – for Preview Magazine
In this blog entry are photos of Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray in the May issue of Preview Magazine.
Here is a quick excerpt from the article written by Owen Maddela:
…”During downtime on the afternoon we shot Catriona for Preview’s digital cover shoot, she recalled her turn as a fledgling artist who joined the local scene four years ago. “I like doing other things simultaneously because I am a creative,” she says, her take-charge attitude evident even from the get-go. “Just being a model—going to castings and standing in front of a camera and not taking part in what I was portraying or the creative process—is not very fulfilling for me.”

In this blog entry are shots of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach in her latest cover turn for Preview Magazine with the following pitch:
Who run the world? Girls! Pia Wurtzbach Official still reigns supreme as a woman who never fails to inspire. In our cover story, she shares all the hard lessons she learned from her battles with self-doubt and defeat, and how the best way to win is through learning and preparation. Inside the issue: 50 Preview girls give their reviews for this year’s Beauty Awards, and we spend time with empowering mother-daughter duos Janice de Belen and Kaila Estrada, Gloria Diaz and Isabelle Daza and Ava Daza, Bing Loyzaga and Chi Loyzaga Gibbs, and Lotlot de Leon and Janine Gutierrez. #PiaForPreview

When Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina finally crowned her successor last April 30, it’s like a big responsibility was taken off her shoulders. True, she still has close to six more months to serve as a Bb. Pilipinas titleholder. But at this point, Rachel Peters is slowly growing into her niche and will take full command of the title till the next edition of the nationals.
I’d really like to see Maxine propel some needed normalcy back to her hectic life. You should have seen the pressure she went through as the host delegate during the 65th Miss Universe. There was even a point when she could no longer be reached by family members because of the endless commitments and deadly schedule she was required to meet in almost clockwork precision.
So back to this feature, I’m glad to see a more relaxed version of Maxine now. Just like in the video below where she did a pageant makeup tutorial for Preview Magazine. Watch now.

Queen P on AsTM Cycle 5
It was rumored before that Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach will be the new host of Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5. But no, Cindy Bishop will still be there to do the job. Instead, she will be a guest judge (left photo
) during the premiere episode of the latest season which will start airing on Star World by early 2017. This is also the reason why she spent time in the Lion City the past several days.
Anyways, Preview Magazine will have Queen P headlining its Best-Dressed Issue which will come out just in time for the Holidays. Here is the pitch:
Yas, Queen! Pia Wurtzbach reigns as she headlines our annual Best Dressed Issue. We’re celebrating style individuality with the women on this year’s list: Jess Connelly, Renee de Guzman, Mich Dulce, Heart Evangelista, Michelle Yao, Sam Lee, Arci Muñoz, Mika Padua and Pat Ramos. #PiaForPreview

Watch out for this issue of Preview very soon!
I always find a good reason to blog about Kelsey Merritt
I’m always happy whenever I have good reasons to blog about the uber
gorgeous Kelsey Merritt. She is definitely not joining Bb. Pilipinas 2016 as far as I know. But to see her latest pictures always gives me a certain kind of high.
Currently basking in the sandy beach of Shangri-La Mactan in Cebu, Kelsey is taking a short break from all her professional modeling projects and assignments. And what better way to appreciate her beauty than to see her outside the photographic lights and clicks of various lensmen here and abroad.
How about you, dear readers? Are you sharing my constant fondness of Kelsey? 🙂
