I am definitely Pinoy! Born and raised in the Philippines and blessed with wonderful Filipino parents. Although globalism and the internet may have given me a different perspective than most Filipinos, I still am a Filipino and I am proud to be one. Where did this go from here? I am gonna share an article of what I believe is an example of the perfect Filipina. Georgina Wilson, the name may not sound Pinoy but she is a Filipino. And she is my celebrity/model Pinay crush. The article came from here.
Last week, during Singapore’s Sing-Fest music festival, headliner Kanye West couldn’t help but become smitten with the lovely VJ interviewing him. Supermodel and magazine fixture Georgina Wilson has a certain magnetism and charisma so that, even after a full set under the humid air, Kanye still managed to ask for her e-mail address — a moment that Georgina and her friends can have a good laugh about.
Attention, however, is not a new concept for this stunner. Gracing almost every important cover, and taking charge of ads and billboards for several years now, she was able to transcend her name to mass media appeal, with fans tracing her every move.
As you may know, models aren’t usually hired for their intelligence but that’s exactly what separates her from the typical. Much has been written about her love affair with numbers and her self-professed geeky side, but its her candor and wit that got the attention of international producers of music channel, Channel [V]. Aside from doing the chart shows locally, she’s slowly garnering attention internationally, with hosting stints in Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore and Korea (where she landed a cameo for K-Pop group, 2PM’s new music video).
Lately though, it’s not all these accolades that have got people’s tongues wagging, but her constant red carpet date and their status as a duo. Read up as Georgina finally reveals the state of her heart and opens up about her plans for the future.
To that, all I have to say is… sorry, Kanye.
