Belo Eager for Noynoy’s Makeover

After having repaired her rift with presumptive-presidential sister Kris Aquino, “cosmetic surgeon to the stars” Vicki Belo has expressed eagerness to help out in the “makeover” of the country’s soon-to-be-president, Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III. Belo’s announcement came after the younger Aquino publicly articulated on the matter during and after the recent campaign period. Belo said she agrees with the “The Buzz” host, and in an interview with GMA News, shared the importance of improving the older Aquino’s appearance. “We don’t want a president looking worried all the time,” she said. According to Belo, Aquino would do well to have work done on his hair, eyes, skin, and face. “His receding hairline makes him appear older. I want to keep him young and a hair transplant can do just that,” Belo explained. For Aquino’s eyes, Belo suggested “minor surgery to [get] rid [of] the sagging skin [under his eyes]. “It will make him look fresh once again.” For Aquino’s uneven skin tone, Belo suggested that Aquino use Cosmelan, a topical cream that his controversial actress-host sister also uses. Belo also recommended Botox injections for Aquino to lessen the appearance of the facial lines brought about by age. Though it’s too early to tell if Aquino will take heed of Belo’s advice, of late he has seemingly shown a bit of latitude when it comes to propositions offered by her youngest sister, including having to consider some showbiz denizens for government posts. Also, when international magazine Time, came a calling a few months back, Aquino acquiesced to her sister’s request that stylist Liz Uy [also known as the ex-girlfriend of matinee actor John Lloyd Cruz] be brought in for some fashion exertion. In any case, Aquino bared some fashion sense of his own, announcing recently that he will be wearing a traditional barong Tagalog designed by young, hip Filipino designer JC Buendia during his upcoming inauguration. Aquino said he personally hand-picked the design –one with the symbolic ribbon closely associated with his parents—from many that Buendia presented to him. “It’s a symbol of the (country’s) struggle today, and I want to be sure that I don’t lose my ground,” he said.
