Pat McGrath for Dolce & Gabbana Fall Winter 2011

I bumped into the legendary Pat McGrath backstage at Dolce & Gabbana earlier.

On a side note, I’m super excited to be working with her on something. You’ll find out soon. :-)

Chanel Spring Summer Backstage – Hair, Make-up and Model Overload!

Here’s the scene backstage (hair & make-up) at Chanel spring summer 2011. The majority of the girls had a super straight, super sleek pony tail. As for make-up, a bit of dark eyeshadow and eyeliner to emphasize the eyes, a little bit of blush and nothing else.

Playing With Hair Extensions

Playing With Hair Extensions

Never underestimate the power of hair. It’s a no-brainer than hair can easily transform looks. The right hair empowers someone with confidence and attitude. As someone with very thick, black, Asian hair, I can’t really play with hair as much as I play around with clothes. What, do you really think I’d spend time and effort werking a weave with my busy schedule? DIY? No thanks. So when I had the opportunity to play with my hair using extensions (for the first time) at a shoot last week, I was thrilled beyond belief.

Creed Aventus

Creed Aventus

As much as we all love and adore fashion, sometimes you just have to leave fragrance to the people do it best. Creed, purveyors of fine fragrances since 1760, just released a new scent for men: Aventus. I know it sounds a wee bit patronizing (yes, I'm a BIG fan of Creed fragrances) but Aventus is the best men's fragrance I've owned to date.

I love fresh and fruity scent. A spritz here and there reveals a carefully concocted melange of blackcurrant, bergamot, Calville Blanc apples, pineapples, roses, jasmine, birch, patchouli, oakmoss, ambergris and vanilla. The longer it stays on my skin, the more interesting it smells.

Creed Aventus

Trust me, this is gonna keep me happy for quite some time.

Pick up a bottle online at the Creed Boutique or, if you live in the USA, visit Neiman Marcus or Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue in New York.

Beauty by Clinica Ivo Pitanguy

Beauty by Clinica Ivo Pitanguy

There was a time a few years back when I used to obsess about beauty products and treatments. Boy, I was such a junkie back then. I think it was about two years ago when I thought to myself, you know what, it was better to be low maintenance… so I dropped everything that I did and kept what I put on my face to a very bare minimum.

Part of the reason why I stopped being so vain is because I don't really
go out of the house here in Manila, literally and figuratively.

When I visited a friend overseas last year, she was shocked when she
opened my toiletry kit — facial cleanser, deodorant, toothbrush,
toothpaste. I kid you not, that was it. There we were in her enormous bathroom filled
with hundreds of products you'd think she's running a baby Sephora, and
she uttered the words, "oh wow, you're not as high maintenance as I
thought".

It's funny because now, more than ever, is the time for me to take care of myself. I'm not getting any younger, I spend so much time traveling and I'm more visible to the public.

When I went to New York last month, I've heard many great things about the legendary Brazilian Dr. Ivo Pitanguy (who is now
retired). CBS News' 60 Minutes referred to him as the world's most
eminent plastic surgeon and W Magazine
dubbed him as the world's most famous.

From what I've read online, his daughter Dr. Gisela oversaw the
creation of his skincare line so while in NYC, I got myself a set of Beauty by Clinica Ivo Pitanguy's PreVious Intense Cleansing Program. It's available at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. If you're interested, you may also buy it online. It's a three-step program you do nightly.

We'll see how it goes. I'm giving it a shot. If this program work wonders on me, perhaps I'll try their other products, such as the neck creams, lifting serums etc.
