She had been in various fashion shows and had joined several beauty pageants, as well. 6. 6 And she proved just that when she arrived at a Milan Fashion Week party last night in a sheer black shirt, which she wore without a bra. The supermodel made sure she was centre of attention as she joined to the stylish crowd at the Stuart Weitzman store opening in a rather revealing outfit. Wearing an almost see-through shirt, Kate opted out of wearing a bra, meaning that her breasts were on show for the rest of the night. In addition to being the kind of pretty that just makes you want to buy all the world's beauty products, the actress has teamed up with Eco-Change and Green Carpet Challenge founder Livia Firth (Colin Firth's wife!) to promote ethically- made, glamorous clothing. In the latest issue of Net-A- Porter's The Edit, Emma models sustainable designs from Christopher Kane, Victoria Beckham, Erdem, Roland Mouret and Burberry, proving that fashion can be jaw-droppingly gorgeous and be made under fair conditions.

So, what are Kerr's dietary essentials? "It all starts for me with the noni juice," the 30-year-old says. "Noni has been used for over 2,000 years by the Polynesians and my grandmother introduced it to me when I was twelve years old and I've been drinking i t ever since." We're not sure what the story is in Rihanna's spread for Glamour's November issue, but we don't care because she looks SUBLIME! The naughty Pour It Up singer returns to Barbados for the shoot and strips down to her skivvies, inspiring major thigh envy in a Marc Jacobs bra top and panties with a matching coat thrown over it. In another shot, it's hard to focus on anything but her abs in a white Calvin Klein crop top and pencil skirt styled with a vintage pearl Lynn Ban belt. Her body is OUT OF CONTROL! Katy Perry is stunning while attending the Mademoiselle C Cocktail Party held at Pavillon Ledoyen on Tuesday (October 1) in Paris, France. The 28-year-old Roar singer was joined at the after party by Rita Ora, who was a few paces in front of her BFF Cara Delevingne. Katy, if I made you feel at all unhappy, during a time when you were obviously unhappy, and I didnt know, Im sorry, Barbara said. But you cant always know!

It`s all about the designs, creativity and passion of stu- dents this event! Mixing and matching stylish key pieces to glam up our day. The Green Fashion Revolu- tion organized by the Aboitiz group aims to promote the groups five pillars of sustain- ability: reduce, reuse, recycle, rejuvenate communities, and renewable energy generation. The event gave the students the chance to create their signa- ture styles on making designs. It made their hearts beat happily throughout the event as it paved way for guests to enjoy and join the refreshing evolution of green fashion. Green Revo attracted and inspired people to look amazing on low cost apparels. A lot of designers, stylist, and fashionistas have been craving for an exquisite wardrobe. Well, they dont have to look for it; you can find great fashion at Green Revo. LUXE FOR LESS Cebu Normal University was one of the schools who partici- pated on that event. We have two versatile stylists who showcased their talents in terms of design- ing and making the apparels. Mr. Rodsel E. Alcontin and Ms. Gether M. Canillo, they are from College of Teacher Education BSED in TLE. Rodsel was the designer for the fe- Fashion written by Rosemarie Cananera interviewed by Bebie Jane Casipong 9. 9 finds at Green Fashion male costumes where there were seven of them. He was chosen to design for the cos- tumes after he proposed his designs to the SSG. His pas- sion in designing motivated him to join and make loads of designs, as what he men- tioned great designs. On the other hand, Gether, the stylist for the male costumes, made three superb designs for the male models. She said that her friend (Rodsel) motivated her in styling the costumes. Wondering what the cos- tumes were made of, we wander around every corner of the SSG office and found out interesting information. The costumes were made of recycled papers from the office, discarded tarpaulins, sacks, and other waste ma- terials. They also used colors like silver, black and white. They used these colors to have uniformity if designs. NO FAIL-STYLE FORMULAS The team decided to have their theme as Vogue. The Aboitiz was the one who gave them the idea on what theme they should have. At first, they want to do some painting for the costumes but they were running out of time that`s why they shifted to have papers and silvers instead. They prepared the costumes within two weeks before the said event will be hold. To say that the show was successful is an understate- ment. Not only that they set the runway on fire; it was also an unforgettable expe- rience to everyone who was there to watch the show. 10. 10 of Green Fashion R e v o l u t i o nThey have stunned the crowd of Green Fashion Revolution 2 with their incredible prowess. Let'smeetthemonebyone. PhotosbyNoelBenjaminFernandez The Headturners 11. 11 12. 12 The OV Inthisphoto:FrancescaFernandez Photographer:NoelBenjaminFernandez 13. 13 B e a u t y VERWEIGHTFrancesca Fernandez, one of the stunners in the Green Fashion Revolution 2, is the Miss UP- Cebu 2013. She is in her 4th year of BA-Psychology in the prestigious, University of the Philippines. 1. Can you tell us something about yourself and your career as a model? If I can use three words to describe me, its loud and hungry. Those two adjectives can be taken literally, I really am a very loud person, a very talkative and extroverted one; and I am always hungry, hungry for food (as seen in my body), hungry for knowledge and hungry for experiences. My loudness doesnt only stop in my mouth, it also describes the loudness of my desires in life. Add up this loudness with my hunger, and you get the average teenager with very big dreams. Being this type of person gave me the experiences I currently have at hand, one of which is holding the title of Miss UP Cebu 2013. This title paved the way to even more experiences in my life, including the few modeling stints I have en- countered. I dont really consider myself a model, I just grab opportunities when theyre presented to me. In fact, Ive only tried the run way three times, and a photo shoot twice, which was again, offered to me because of the crown I hold at the moment. All my modeling experiences can be attributed to my winning the crown, which I am very thankful for. 2. You were one of the head turners during the 2nd Green Fashion Evolution held last August 3, 2013 at SM Trade Hall. Can you tell us how and why did you join the said fashion competition? The concept of the Fine Arts (FA) students who represented our school, UP for the said competition was breaking the norm so they got models of varied sizes (height, weight) and personal styles. My FA designer friend (who happened to be close to me) just suddenly asked me to join because his teacher suggested them to look for a plus- sized model; and they right away thought of me because I was carrying that image as Miss UP Cebu 2013. I happily agreed because of a lot of reasons. One, their concept of breaking the norm aligned with my goal when I joined our school pageant. Second, I thought that if I joined, it would be a great way of sending a message to the youth that beauty is not equal to skinny. Third, Im all about welcoming new experiences in my life, and I knew GFR would be a great new experience which I could happily remember and tell my future children about. 3. How confident are you up on stage/catwalk? Can you tell us how you build your confidence? Just have fun and enjoy the experience. This quote, which my make-up artist and uncle told me on the night of the pageant, is what brings me confidence on the catwalk (and for other events that involve a huge audience watching you). When you stop thinking about the negative things such as failing or losing, you stop letting pressure win over you. When pressure is not present, you can fully enjoy the experience at hand. For example, instead of thinking too much about how I should walk and pose, I just let my body do the walking, I enjoy the music playing when I walk and I focus on the crowd who are there to support me. Your supporters can really eliminate the pressure. Its really all about mind set. 4. As a plus-size model what do you think is your advantage compared to the typical skinny models? I become a challenge to anyone who wants to work with me. For example: designers and stylists cant just throw me clothes in an instant, because most clothes used in modeling and events are for skinny people. When they work with me, it requires more effort; stylists need to search more clothes that can fit me and designers need to design clothes that would suit my body type. (which I sometimes feel guilty about, haha!). Others tell me this is a good thing (probably to lessen the guilt I feel), because it brings out the versatility of the designer/stylist. Also, I get to send a message to the youth that you can become a model while not depriving yourself of the things that make you happy in life, in my case, that means the love for food. As long as you have the confidence and determination, you can be who you want to be. 5. In a society that stereotypes a model for being skinny, as a plus-size model, how do you go about peoples judgments and criticism? People dont often believe me when I say I have such a low self- esteem, but its true. The criticisms I get from people always bring me down, but I never dwell on them too much. Whenever I get criticized or judged about the way I look, I allow myself to feel sad and insecure for a while, then I move on. I believe that its good to acknowledge your insecurities, but its never good to dwell on them forever. 6. Do you see yourself as a skinny model? Or do you consider losing weight and continue your career as a skinny model? I definitely never saw myself as a skinny person. Whenever I model, I see myself as what I really am, a person with more weight and fats than the average person. As for the second question, I do plan on losing weight, but not the drastic type. I am starting to get concerned about the effects my weight has on my present and future health, thats why I plan on doing something about getting the scale down. However, my motivation for losing weight is not at all related to physical appearance. In fact, I plan to lose only what is necessary for me to leave the obese IBM. I still plan on maintaining the plus- sized image though because I dont think Ill ever be happy without food. (shy smile) 7. What advice can you give to the girls who want to become models but could not because of their weight? The problem with humans, is that, we care too much about what others think of us. Often times, their opinions make us captives who no longer chase what we want in life. Im not telling you to just forget what others think, thats hard. I swear, even at this point of my life, societys opinion of me still bothers me from time to time. It takes a great amount of courage and acceptance to stop caring about what other people say about you. Im still on my way to that, on my way of accepting myself fully, because I believe that acceptance of the self is one of the greatest things you can ever achieve in your life. The only great tip I can give to those girls is that you should accept your insecurities, and change the way you think about them. If it werent for my insecurities, I wouldnt be Miss UP Cebu 2013 right now, and I wouldnt have had my modeling experiences. Your insecurities can be a source of weakness, but it can also be your source of strength. Also, another great thing to always remember is that people will talk about you no matter what you do, and where you go. Its just a matter of remembering whose opinions matter. 14. 14 Psych's Pride: A l b e r t Y a m o m o Albert Yamomo (2nd year Psychology student at Cebu Normal University) one of the male models in the fashion event felt happy and lucky that heve experienced that kind of fashion show. The efforts of the team were not wasted because they won the competition and they deserved it. When asked if given a chance to rate the teams effort from one to ten, he answered 10 because of the exceptional effort that the team gave. Overwhelmed kay nakaexperience kog suot ug ingon ato nga what seems to be useless was converted into good fashion, said Albert Jan Yamomo, a second year , BS- Psychology student. Albert did not audition for the Green Fashion Revolution, he was asked to join the group because he has already an experience. Albert had a hard time trying to balance schooling and of the same time practicing for the fashion show. He, together with the other models, rendered their time practicing after classes and it was worth it. He felt satisfied and boosted his pride after CNU was announced to be the Champion.

Jayme defines a beauty that is simply pretty but cap- tures the heart of the crowd. Ms. Princess F. Jayme is a second year communication student in Cebu Normal university . Through her charm, she was chosen to be one of the models of the green Fashion revolution 2013. Actually, it is not her first time to involve in this kind of affair; she was used to join in various pageants. Miss Mactan 1st runner up was one of her awards. She was also one of the Miss Mandaue finalist, though she was not able to hit the top, still she got all the courage to confidently join the screening for the Models in Fashion Revolution. She felt pressured in preparing herself to rock the runway , Shen then realized that she is bringing the name of Cebu Normal University that she must be at her best, since she and the other models are competing t with other highly recognized schools in Cebu.

Actually, dili man jud ko fashion goer, I tried at the age of 13 or 14. I joined Miss Intramurals, Miss Tawason Talamban but then I stopped kay murag kapoy man so I focused in modeling. Who encouraged you to join then? My cousin, she is a beauty queen and a model way back then. I was a encouraged by her so I want to follow her footsteps. What is your style in terms of fashion? I want those sexy / glamorous styles of fashion. As long as comfortable lang kas imong style of fashion. I want those people around me niya their heads and eyes will turn back on me. According to my mentor and designers we need to dress up like we are going to face our greatest enemy. In spite of your busy sched or being a student and being a model, how do you manage your time? 23. 23 Interview one on one Every weekdays Im focus on my studies then Friday until Sun- day, Im into events. What is more weighty for you right now, current career or education? Education of course, I know my career is stable. There was an offer from Manila but I rejected it because I want to study here in Cebu. Is fashion a way of expression? It depends on the person, if comfortable ka ana then that is what fashion is all about. What makes a woman a woman? When she inspires others and shell be able to hold the beauty of creations of God. What advice can you give to those girls who wanted to follow your footsteps? Always think that you are wearing a crown and you dress properly. If you hear criticisms dont let those things pull you down instead make those criticisms inspire you. 24. 24 25. 25 Photograhers of Jessa Jane Carriaga from right to left: Mark Yap, Milanio, Mark Yap, Jonas Yu, Rhodel de Silva 26. 26 C e b u N o r m a l SWEET 27. 27 l U n i v e r s i t y ' s S u c c e s s 28. 28 PhotosbyNoelBenjaminFernandez 29. 29 Cebu Normal University compiled everything. The message was there and the effect was provided which made the University won the competition. For me, the amazing part is about the woven tarpaulin because it takes a lot of effort to weave a tarpaulin and transform it to creative and fash- ionable clothes, and also the recycled accessories which added accent to the clothes that the models were wearing. -Maria S. Gigante, Judge Miss Cebu 2013 second runner-up Q: How does it feel, CNU won the Green Fashion Competition? Speechless! Unexpected , wa mi nagtuo nga makadaug kay kulang sa budget then kinahanglan mag revise kay gubut pa among theme. -Hana Dave Unabia BSED- TLE II Q: What more can you offer for CNU aside from winning a fashion show? Paningkamot ug eskwela. Q: What can you say to those students aiming to make a name in the Fashion world? Dasig, continue your dreams. Q: What is fashion for you? Dli lng ang kanindot sa g sul.ob , but also the confidence and beauty. Dlili lang sa sanina hasta pud sagadala. -Gether Canillo Bsed- tle II Q: What is with cnu that made it on top? Pagkakugihan, pag.atos bisan naa pa may laing kauban sa office(creepy) then facing problems together. Q: Who motivates you on this project? The TLE majors and mga tawo nga nisalig namo, nko.

Also the UP and USC. -Matt Erickson Malagar Q: What can you say being CNU at the top over other five schools? Big Achievement that CNU is not all about academics but can also rice in the field of fashion specially us, TLE majors -the confidence was there. -Rodsel Alcontin BSED- TLE 11 Interviewed by : Jo-Anne Archival and Laarne Grace Avila Written by: Ananluz Abing and Jo-anne Archival 30. 30 A2nd year TLE major student of Cebu Normal University shared his creative mind in designing the dresses of the Green Fashion Revolution 2013 held last August 3 at SM City Cebu Trade Hall. He told us that his passion in making and designing dresses serves as a way for him to continue sharing his talent to the people. Despite of many negative feedbacks that he would hear from other people it did not stop him to continue pursuing his dream to become a designer, and the Green Fashion gave him the opportunity to showcase his creativity. However, difficulties during their screening came along as he was told to improve his designs, but he held on a quote that says, When things go wrong that you musnt quit. , and instead of quitting he was motivated to make a better deigns. Furthermore, these new and better designs bought the name of Cebu Normal University as the Champion of this years event.

Which made me to play with my cousin as my living doll and dressed her with papers. Using newspapers and magazines, glues and tapes, we came up into a small project that tested our creativity and resourcefulness. The bloom of paper clothing started on year 1960s in US. But now it is becoming a trend again which many fashion de- signers reinvent the use of paper in their creations. Paper has become a famous material of choice of many artists for its manipulative nature. Also it is eco-friendly which in- spired me to do this dress. The photoshoot was done during the typhoon Bebang in the Philippines inside our house. This will remind us that we can help the nature by making something useful out of our waste materials. Recycle! Read My Dress does not literally says to read what is written on the dress. It says that we should keep our eyes open to our environment! Helping our nature in artistic way is kinda challenging but fun! Lets make Recycling artistic and fashionable!
