This Beauty Queen is Modeling at Boardwalk’s “One Big Show” !!!
Just got back home from rehearsals of Boardwalk‘s “One Big Show” and I’m just feeling so blessed that I am still modeling in this season of my life. What’s even more exciting is that I am part of a VERY special segment of “One Big Show” featuring top beauty queens, models and actresses from the 70s, 80s and 90s all wearing Plus-Sized designs.
The star model of our segment is Miss Cherry Pie Picache, one of the most respected character actresses in Philippine cinema and one of the endorsers of Boardwalk. This is my first time to meet Cherry Pie Picache and I salute her for coming in to rehearse even if she had the flu!
“One Big Show” is a two-hour extravaganza of fashion and music as Boardwalk celebrates it’s 20th anniversary! It will be held at 5pm on June 18, 2011 at the Araneta Coliseum. Aside from the celebrity endorsers shown on the poster above, Boardwalk will have 100 models (aside from us Plus-Sized beauties!) wearing their best fashion items. It will be one BIG SHOW for sure!
The complete list of models in the Boardwalk Plus-Size segment are:
Cherry Pie Picache (former commercial model, character actress and now part of ABS-CBN management)
Desiree Verdadero (3rd Runner-up Miss Universe 1984),
Azenith Briones (who became a famous actress after winning Mutya ng Pilipinas Miss Photogenic 1975),
Alma Concepcion (actress and Bb. Pilipinas International 1994),
Joyce Ann Burton (that’s me… Miss Young Philippines 1981, Bb. Pilipinas Universe 1985, now RPN NewsWatch anchor),
Lyka Ugarte (actress, 1st Runner-Up Mutya ng Pilipinas 1983, and winner of “The Most Beautiful Girl in the Philippines” 1983),
Gem Padilla (Bb. Pilipinas Universe 1990 and now marathon runner),

and Isabelle Roces (top fashion model and now RPN NewsCap anchor).
Not in our segment, but present at rehearsals was Marina Benipayo (Bb. Pilipinas Maja International 1992 and top model) was at the rehearsals, but since she’s definitely NOT a plus-size, she’s in the jeans segment together with Maggie Wilson (Bb. Pilipinas World 2007).
