isn't she lovely?


at last night's möet & chandon party hosted by celine lopez and pepper teehankee at the new citrus bar (also known as the bar formerly known as V formerly known as venezia), we bumped into the philippines' own version of a supermodel—cristina garcia (above, with designer rajo laurel). this australian-filipino mestiza beauty first made a splash in the modeling industry over 10 years ago when she appeared on the cover of mega magazine. though not very tall (she's probably only 5'5"), cristina makes up for her lack in height with her stunning face, the way she moves her body (any good model should know her best sides and how to trick the camera), her professionalism, her positive attitude, and her niceness! she left the country years ago to pursue an interior-design career in new york, flying in once in a while to model for advertising campaigns, and every time we see her, it's all hugs and smiles and what-have-you-been-up-tos. welcome back, cristina, hope to see you on some covers soon!
