Modern Filipinas conquer the stage
Today’s Filipinas are becoming more empowered than ever as society continues to give them many—if not equal—rights and privileges to their male counterparts. With these, they also become inspired to transform from better to best, from good to great.
Six modern Filipinas are proof to this beautiful phenomenon for they conquered their respective stages and arenas before the public’s eyes.
They are Heart Evangelista, a seasoned actress who is now a recognized artist; Coleen Garcia, the young TV talent who also serves as the “fitspiration” of countless millenials; Rachelle Ann Go who have flown past her OPM abode and soared to West End heights; Nadine Lustre, the actress who has started in sidekick roles but is now her own trending TV and movie star; Yassi Pressman who is famous as a dancing queen but is now also a leading lady; and Julie Anne San Jose who added actress to her recording star title.
Just recently these ladies became the highlight of hair care brand Cream Silk’s whole day event at the World Trade Center, aptly dubbed “Cream Silk Transformations: Spotlight on the Modern Filipina.”
“Women are slowly climbing up the ranks and embracing bigger and better roles for themselves. Today, the modern Filipina has become both a spotlight and a beacon,” shared Gina Lorenzana, Unilever’s vice president for Personal Care. “She has evolved into a fearless and trailblazing individual determined to realize her dreams and make a positive mark in the world.”
And to make the event even more memorable, no less than Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach appeared on stage. She is the epitome of transformation for she proved naysayers wrong. Indeed, she was not “just another actress trying her luck at beauty pageants.” She is now a legitimate beauty queen, the most “beautifully confident with a heart” in the universe.
