Another Filipina finished among the finalists in the prestigious Supermodel search.
Charlene Louise “Chat” Alagon Almarvez, who’s turning 17 on Jan. 25, placed first runner-up in the 2010 Supermodel of the World search held in Sao Paulo Brazil over the weekend, and got a US$150,000 modeling contract from Ford Models NYC.
Chat is the third Filipina to land in the Top 5, following Melanie Marquez (also first runner-up) in 1986 and Charo Ronquillo (second runner-up) in 2006.
“Chat is statuesque and stunning at 5’9”,” added Felix. “She’s a Business Administration freshman at the De La Salle College of Saint Benilde. She was discovered during a Santacruzan in Laguna. With just a couple of months experience in modeling, she tried her luck and won the Supermodel Philippines search during the Philippine Fashion Week in October last year.”
