Taylor Lautner: from California to EDSA

Another day had passed and I was on my way home when I was stunned at a billboard in EDSA: there was Taylor Lautner, and he was like greeting everyone “GOOD MORNING MANILA”, on his fit tees, gorgeous bod and look that makes ladies go gaga. There he is, posing as a new ad model for Bench. Good catch for this one Mr. Ben Chan!

It was July 19 this week, when Bench officially announced on their Twitter account that the Twilight hunk will be their Global Benchsetter, among other big names in the music industry like Adam Lavine and Jessica Sanchez. Some other international stars once graced the billboard in one of the busiest road in the city were Liam Hemsworth, Lucy Hale, Micheal Travino, and Joe Jonas.

According to ABS-CBN News site, the campaign was shot by Anthony Mandler, photographer, TV commercial and music video director. I guess all Bench and Taylor Lautner fans are just hoping for him to visit Manila soon.

D Beckham has done it again!

After being the man of Calvin Klein, David Beckham have hundreds of ways to make ladies, and ladies at heart, be wowed and suffer from hyperventilation, every time he poses as a model for a certain underwear brand. This time, I can see him run, swim and pant in an advertisement for H&M…wearing nothing but, oh well his great lean bod and an underwear!

David worked with Guy Richie, the director behind Sherlock Holmes movies and Snatch, to create a campaign for H&M Bodywear. I must say, for someone who’s on his late 30’s, David know how to really present himself in public and be one of the most effective promoter for a clothing line whether that be for Shirts, pants, undergarments or shoes…of course, everyone’s fave is him wearing nothing but his undergarments on. For this 1 minute and 29 seconds ad, shows David running in some streets in Los Angeles, and my eyes got widened on the part where he needs to fix some parts of his underwear before chasing the car again! I hope this ad will also make real guys feel good to have a pair of undergarments from H&M.

Here’s the ad every D Beckham’s fan has been waiting for…breathe in…breathe out

Tis’ the season to be sexy, the VS way

Fashion industry will be incomplete without Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2012!

VS3

Hail to the fashion lovers, who gets to witness this one of the most waited event of the year, as the VS angels strut and rule the runway in New York City, wearing only the most beautiful lingerie Victoria Secret has created.

Models Adriana Lima, Behati Prinsloo, Barbara Palvin, Joan Smalls, Ieva Laguna, Lily Donaldson, Hilary Rhoda, Karlie Kross and Alessandra Ambrosio were some of the lucky beauties who graced the runway, and were chosen to wear every lady’s dream lingerie…and of course get to have wings to paired up with their sexy look.  Among the handpicked maiden who graced the runway, I must say it’s a good choice to have Alessandra Ambrosio wear and flaunt this years “Fantasy Bra”, which costs about $2.5 million. Someone worthy should really be the one to present it, and Alessandra showed her worth.

I myself dreamed of being part of VS angel, but since I know that it’s something that I can never EVER achieve, watching the VS angels play in the catwalk is already a dream come true to me! Crazy, but heck, I guess it’s very lady’s dream! I don’t have the bod those angels have anyway. One of the best thing I waited for on the yearly fashion show was the music, as I admire them perfectly walk with the beat of Rihanna’s “Diamond”. Along with the songs the angels strut to are Bruno Mars’ “Young Girl” and Justin Beiber’s famous song “As Long as You Love Me”, performed live on stage.

I was awed as I saw how they started the show with the circus theme…they surely know how to make the whole show a parade of beauties. Again, every model who have their wings on, makes me wish to wear one of those! For that, I would like to commend (as always) on how they put the sketches of the lingerie come to life.

It was glamorous and magical and I am always amazed on how they can keep the glow in the show. Watching the VS fashion show is already written on my bucket list, so I’m praying fervently for me to accomplish it. It’s not just a fashion show, it’s a place where controversies, fashion, music and dreams exist. Can’t wait for next year’s another VS magical moment!

Hot Ticket #5

Here’s a treat for those who’s into daily fashion.

Check out their street style.

My blog, your style.

Name: Izzy

School: La Salle, College of St.Benilde

Style: Black razor back shirt, blue belt, denim cropped pants and  slippers. She’s also into sporty outfit.

Favorite accessories: tattoos and pierces.

Most of us wear clothes which will make us feel comfortable, and Izzy is not an exemption. There’s a reason why she’s on my hot ticket list and it’s not because of her high heel shoes or her uber pretty dress, but this time, she’s in her most comfortable attire: her attitude. Her best accessories are her tattoo, pierces in her lip, tounge and ears. When I asked her what her tattoo signifies, she said it always remind her of Jesus as a friend, not someone who will judge her in every thing that she do, unlike some people around her. She has gone and still going through tough times, that sometimes leads her to depression, but with Jesus in her side, she know she’ll be fine.

At the age of 18, she does not only get to manage thier family business, but she’s also into mixed martial arts, like Muay Thai. She may be a rebel, but she did not resist learning. For her, sometimes formal learning, such as going to school is not enough to face life. As what she said, it is essential to be street smart and that there are things which are not enough to be learned, but one have to apply in life, like putting value in one’s work, respect one’s passion and learning to be open in other people’s opinion. She’s thinks mature for her age, and she have words for those who said she ain’t going to reach anything in her life: “screw those who said I can’t”

Benj’s been working as a Quality Representative for 7 months now and he’s fairly new in the industry, but it’s not his first to be adventurous in fashion. He’s been attending “Philippine Fashion Week” for years and studies in a fashion school in Ortigas. Whenever there are girls wanting to glam up and ooomph their look, he’s the one they look for and seek advise to. He recently join the Metro magazine search for a stylist and he got his two fingers crossed and praying he’ll make it. I’m really thankful because he’s as excited as I am, that he even damn pose for me! 😀
