August 2011 Issue with Emma Watson on the cover.
I went to Manila a couple of months ago to shoot for TotalGirl Philippines
again. This time it was going to be for a shorter fashion feature pegged on the looks of Elle Fanning (younger sis of my fave child actress Dakota Fanning)
, Hailee Steinfield (honestly don’t know her)
and Willow Smith (but who doesn’t know her?)
My pretty young models :3
Coincidentally, I’ve worked with Maureen and Denise for the last January editorial of TG this year
. They are a breeze to work with just like the last time, having those perfect looks and pearly-white smiles generic in any leading magazine. In short, naturally beautiful and photogenic models of tomorrow. Of course, same goes with half-German darling Ashleigh.
Channeling the Retro Fashionista: Elle Fanning
Gracing the Glamourous Girl Next Door: Hailee Steinfield
Exuding the Fierce Free Spirit: Willow Smith
And some of you might have gone “I whip my hair back and forth”.
The magazine is still as bright as sunshine and lovely for preteen girls filled with dreams. Whoever does the layout for TG, I give kudos to you! It’s always creative and funky fresh.
Because I needed more space in the tiny hotel room. Anything for that angle!
My photoshoot and child-friendly look achieved by cutting my colored skinny jeans short. I’ve done it to most of mine already since I’m beginning to hate the suffocating feeling of pants. Plus, these half-cut pants (what do you call these formally?) paired with a long shirt make me look quite taller. A simple fashion tip from a fashion nobody like me. 😉
Once again, I’d like to acknowledge the bubbly creative mind behind these shoots, Katsu Modomo. Thank you for the opportunity and for believing in me once again even if I did have some mishaps shooting indoors. I am forever grateful.

Unrelated stuff on the table, happy birthday to one of my favorite bloggers who also happens to be my dear friend Chip Young
There are a lot of us sharing our birthdays this month. I was thinking about what to blog about for my birthday and came back with no idea. Hmm… Does anyone have any particular questions for me? If so, you can comment below and I’ll try my best to answer them for the heck of it on my birthday.
Take care everyone!
