Last weekend, Bonifacio High Street serves a walk-through of the much anticipated season of Philippines’ Next Top Model (PNTM) in line with the upcoming season. I was lucky to get to see the new set of aspiring models while they strut their stunts and winning walks to the runway!
I can say that I am not really into reality shows for models but I this batch might change my evening habits starting tonight, March 21 2017. They are incredibly hot and model-material, not to mention how promising their personalities are!
Let’s watch this interesting teaser!
The launch was graced by none other than PNTM Cycle 2 host Maggie Wilson-Consunji, who was crowned Binibining Pilipinas World in the 43rd Binibining Pilipinas pageant. She was the Philippines’ representative to the 57th Miss World pageant. More than just a pretty face, Maggie recently won the Amazing Race Asia, a competition of brains, wit and physical strength, where only the best come out on top.
Also joining the PNTM launch was current Miss International titleholder Kylie Verzosa, who serves as the mentor of the contestants. On the show, the model contestants will definitely learn a thing or two from Kylie. Aside from being a beauty queen, she is also an active member of the Professional Models Association of the Philippines (PMAP) and has done various fashion and beauty spreads in different publications. She is also an advocate for depression and suicide awareness. Talk about beauty, brains and a golden heart.
Joining the event are this season’s panel of judges which includes PMAP President, Rapha Kiefer, who was named Best Model of the World Philippines 2003 and MTV Fashionista-Best Model of the World Philippines 2004. With a 12-year modeling career in Asia, he surely knows what to look for in a top model and he can bring out the best in the PNTM contestants.
Another PNTM judge for this cycle is Meg Magazine editor-in-chief, Rain Dagala. Aside from being at the helm of the country’s best fashion magazine, Rain is also a stylist to many of the local celebrities. His unique eye for fashion will surely be a plus as he guides the contestants to top model status.
Of course, PNTM Cycle 2 is all about the new batch of contestants who are ready to embrace the realness of the modeling world. At their premiere walk as PNTM contestants, they strutted in different ensembles: Swimwear by Wear Sandy Cheeks, ready to wear clothes from Basic Movement by Esme Palaganas, Athleisure by designer Kaye Morales, High Fashion clothes by Pat Santos. Aside from the voguish clothes, the model contestants also had their Oppo Smartphones to complete their fashionable looks.
After getting a load of gorgeous people and marvelous outfits during the fashion show, guest DJs kicked off the event socials and had everyone partying away! Of course I look forward to see how Rain will put the tension to the show, knowing him having so much desire and passion to fashion and style.
The upcoming season is already looking more fabulous and exciting! Here are my equally excited blogger friends who graced the launch of this new cycle. (Credit to Ruth Dela Cruz for the photo)
