There’s one “secret” that makes Isabelle Daza confident in her own skin. Manila’s newest “It Girl”—who is fast making a name in showbiz and modelling—was officially launched as Avon Fashion’s newest ambassador for intimate apparel. Radiant and poised as ever, she revealed that her bra gave her that boost she needed for the grand event.
Held at The Peninsula Manila’s Suite in Makati City, the statuesque beauty simultaneously held the launch of her eponymous Belle Dream Bra, which she helped design for Avon’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
In a brief tête-à-tête, Belle shared how her mother, former Ms. Universe Gloria Diaz, had taught her the importance of wearing good underwear while growing up.
“My mom and I went together to get my first bra, and I was so I excited,” she recalled. “Once I got it, even though it was only training bra, I still felt like an adult already.”
Besides that memorable first, Belle eventually learned the ropes of choosing a bra that fits properly, since doing so would provide comfort and a good silhouette under any kind of clothes.
Talking more about the design aspect of the Belle Dream Bra, she shared, “I helped designed it by choosing the materials and color—the black lace specifically. I also kept it sophisticated and elegant, and a little bit sexy, to fit my personal fashion taste.”
The result is an underwire molded brassiere that features an innovative built-in “cookie” (or padding) that tastefully enhances the shape of one’s assets. The bra itself is a beauty to behold—much like its inspiration and namesake—with dainty lace embroidery on the cups, contrast lining for a sexy tattoo effect, fancy shoulder straps, and a corset-styled center, which enables the wearer to change the level of cleavage enhancement from one outfit to the next.
“For me, underwear must naturally enhance what’s already beautiful about you. I think this is a standard that every woman must stick to when they select their lingerie—get what makes you look and feel good,” Belle ended.
