Imagine These Are Petals

As a P&G Beauty Ambassador (along with Tim Yap and Daphne Oseña-Paez), I get first dibs of P&G’s many beauty products like my favorites Pantene and Olay. A few months back, I added a new favorite to my growing list–Camay Body Wash and Beauty Bar. I don’t know if this brand sounds familiar to you but to me, it does. I remember seeing its commercials back when I was younger. Camay soaps were always used and endorsed by the most beautiful, fair-skinned, mestiza women and I remember thinking to myself how pretty they all were. I wanted to be just like them. Camay was always about being feminine, sensual, alluring and sophisticated. Fast-forward to now, P&G has brought the brand back and it’s as if it never went away.


After being back in the market for less than a month, Camay finally revealed to the world who their new Camay girl is last January 18. Before I show you who she is, let me walk you though what happened at the event. The event was held at the new Sky Garden in Zuellig Building. Can I just say, I haven’t seen a more beautiful venue! Sky Garden is on the top floor of Zuellig Building so you can see Makati’s picturesque skyline from there. It’s an indoor garden but at the same time, open air. For the Camay event, Sky Garden was transformed into a pink garden. Upon entering the venue, you’ll see a photo wall featuring past Camay girls.


These need no introduction. They’re the stars of the night (aside from our new Camay girl, that is). Presenting, my new favorite scented shower gels–the always yummy Creme Vanilla, the feminine Romantique Rose and the youthful Dynamique Grapefruit. All the girls in our family are using these and we all swear by them! They’re called Scents of Attraction for a reason.


The stage is ready for our new Camay girl!


She’s none other than actress Angelica Panganiban! Doesn’t she look radiant?


Here she is being interviewed by the night’s host, Bianca Gonzales and Tim Yap.


Victor Basa, Bianca, Angelica and Tim toast to Camay and the new Camay girl! It was a great way to cap the evening off!


Now, time for my outfit. The theme for the night was actually florals. Since I’ve never been to Sky Garden, I didn’t know if it called for casual florals or party wear florals. I was unsure what attire would be appropriate for the venue so I went for the always safe, black attire instead. I can always argue that my dress’ skirt was inspired by petals anyway. Use your imagination a little. They’re petals, okay?! They’re not scales! (Defensive much. LOL) Petals, I tell you. PETALS!


And since I left the house really early (7:30am to be exact), I couldn’t think straight about my outfit. Florals are usually always so colorful hence the need for more time to color coordinate and style. And time was definitely not a luxury I had that day. A simple black dress was my best bet. It’s easy to style, even when you’re half asleep. And when all else fails, I can always rely on a beaded backless number for that subtle wow factor.

    This design is incredible! You definitely know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost
    moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

    Demmet… I shoulda bugged my friend to take me to this. But I’m not sure how I would’ve presented this in a photography/hobby blog. :P

    And they’re petals if you say so. Really shiny, rounded petals..

  21. Tasha D.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE! :D When you get dresses from retail brands and designers, do you sometimes take the liberty in altering them? yung parang Rachel Zoe lang ang peg? Kasi sometimes she alters the design pero nagpapaalam din muna sya dun sa couturier.

    • itscamilleco

      Usually I don’t na. Seldom :) I can always make my own dresses din naman :)

  22. judy

    Such a pretty black dress! The style and shape of the edge of the dress was really like petals. Though there is no black flower or gold but still looks petals. haha
