Before strutting the runway, the girls were given a free makeover courtesy of Maybelline Philippines.
There was also a booth for Lay Bare and they offered free eyebrow threading for the participants.
Ramp and VTR time! These aspiring models surely brought with them so much potential and enthusiasm!
Two of this mall tour's major sponsors: Crystal Clear and Stabilo
We were asked to go onstage, walk the runway and give a few tips about modelling and fashion. I was totally unprepared for that!! I felt extremely nervous and shy. I mean, yes I've done something similar to this many times before, but not in SM. Not in the Philippines' largest mall operator. Ahhh! It was such a surreal experience! Thank you to my beloved SM GTW team for making my dream come true. ♥
Ms. Dorothy introduced me and she mentioned about my blog, modelling and pageant stints, too. As for my not-so-pro advice, I told everyone that in dressing up, it doesn't matter if you're wearing the latest trends or not. You just have to know your personal style and express yourself through it. Meanwhile on modelling, I shared some basic tips in walking, standing and proper blocking lang, plus reminded the young ladies to be confident about themselves and flash their best smile possible all the time (except when fierceness is required, lol).
After the interview was the meet and greet session. I got so surprised that some of the participants read my humble blog and follow me on Twitter. Kilig sobra! :) Thank you to everyone who came and supported us. It was nice meeting you all!
Another major event sponsor: HP
Cute Redhead girls! Give na sa wig!!
Feasted over these sumptuous meals from Pizza Hut after the program. Happy birthday, Sir Carlo! *_*
Heartfelt thanks to the SM GTW team for allowing me to experience this one of a kind chance! I've no regrets of skipping my Saturday class! :p It's not everyday that you get invited to wonderful opportunities just like this. I love my SM GTW family! ♥
