Face-Off

The Rugged Life

I got inspired by my current playlist on Deezer so I thought I’d dress a bit like a rugged rock star sans the boots for my magazine shoot that day. Owen Sarmiento, one of my favorite makeup artists ever, did my makeup for the shoot. He was totally digging my turn to the dark side (both fashion and […]

Roland Mouret For Banana Republic

Last Thursday was a jampacked day. I hosted the Freshgear Fashion Faceoff under the scorching hot sun at UST from morning until late afternoon, then went straight to Greenbelt 5 afterwards to host the launch of the Roland Mouret For Banana Republic collection. You can just imagine how I must’ve looked by the time I reached […]
