The 25th Anniversary Fashion Show of Metrowear Icon and Cebu-based Designer Cary Santiago yesterday night was a huge success, to say the least. The Isla Ballroom of EDSA Shangrila was packed with familiar faces in high society, showbusiness and media. And no one can’t deny the kind of adoration many ladies have for the talented star of the night. His creations are divinely elegant. Look at some of the pieces in his silver collection and get ready to be amazed even more with the complete photo set – as prepared by Kai Magsanoc for Yahoo Southeast Asia

Take a bow, Cary Santiago!
Can you see Binibini potentials in this 5’10” Supermodel?
Back in 2012 when I first featured Samantha Lewis as a possibility for Bb. Pilipinas, she was still a fresh eye candy with PMAP (Professional Models Association of the Philippines). Now that she has achieved senior status with the organization with a strong portfolio that clinches her high-end gigs during go-sees, will the 5’10” Fil-British catwalk diva be ready to explore a different avenue in front of the spotlight?
Some of us know by now that PMAP is fiercely protective of their members, and will never be the ones to push any one of them to join beauty pageants if there is nagging reluctance brewing within. In fact, they might have secretly heaved a sigh of relief last year when Maxine Medina was disqualified due to contractual concerns.
But will any of the camps pluck Samantha this time around? What’s your guess? 😉

Here comes another possible Binibining Pilipinas 2012 contender. Introducing Samantha Lewis, a 5’10” fashion model with Filipino-British lineage. The 23 year-old La Union native is a Nursing graduate who was scouted by FDAP’s Edgar San Diego for the modelling world. Now an active member of PMAP (Professional Models Association of the Philippines), she has been working the ramp since 2006.
Do you think she has what it takes to conquer the national pageant and become a beauty queen?
Our local pool of professional models has always been a rich source of candidates for Binibining Pilipinas. Will Samantha Lewis follow the footsteps of her colleagues in the profession who are now former winners of the pageant? Let’s wait and see! 🙂
