1st ever Us Girls August Awards

When it comes to beauty, wellness, and fashion, the Us Girls TV show at Studio 23 is very reliable. The show tackles a lot of topics that are very relevant for the girls. Its hosts Iya Villania, Angel Aquino, and Megan Young (temporarily substituted Cheska Garcia-Kramer who had just given birth), are all really talented and reliable. I like the way they influence their audience when it comes to beauty, style, fashion, and in a lot more aspects in life.

Just last August 20, Thursday, the Us Girls had their very first August Awards. It's called that way because August didn't just mean the 8th month of the year, but it's also an adjective meaning inspiring, majestic, something high-ranking, or grandeur. So, in this event, Us Girls awarded several personalities who were recognized for their great contributions in fashion and beauty.

Some awards included Makeup Artists of the Year, Stylists of the Year, Most Fashionable Women, Faces of the Year, and the Us Girls Icon of the year. For each category, the top 4 nominees who got the most votes (via Multiply) were awarded, except of course for the Icon of the year, because it was someone who embodied Us Girls' idea of a modern Filipina.

*got the complete list from http://www.sunstar.com.ph
*grabbed event photos from Sir Tony Santos' Multiply site.

Kim Chui wasn't able to come but a VTR of her message was shown on the big screen.

The event went on and off because of the rain pouring once in a while. But the guests all stayed and finished the event. There were also performances from Ballet Philippines, De La Salle University Innersoul, Ronnie Liang, and Princess. A fashion show by three designers: Tippi Ocampo, Charina Sarte, and Reian Mata was also done.

Besides the nice performances and awards, guests were served yummy food and beverages during the show. Some of these were: buffet catered by MICAH (culinary school), and alcoholic drinks from Shooters, Sober Club, and The Bar. BlowUp Babies also had a booth there where the guests had some souvenir photos taken.

I was actually there as one of the usherettes of the event, with four of my co-models too. We were the ones who used to get featured at several Us Girls segments and we've already become friends with their staff that's why we got into this event.


Other sponsors which benefited us as models were: Binalot & Magnolia Fruit Drink (lunch), Waffle Time (snacks), Code-Limited (gift certificate), Zen Zest (cologne), Loreal, (shampoo & sun block), Piandre Salon (our hair, plus some mini bottled shampoos from Kerastase), and Shu Uemura (our makeup).


The entire event was really fun. It's been an exciting experience 'coz I met a lot of popular personalities, I gained new friends, and I had a lot of photos! hahaha!=))

Catch the airing of the 1st ever US Girls August Awards on AUGUST 30, Saturday, 7pm at Studio 23!
