What makes an Ultimate Woman? Heart Evangelista-Escuudero, Coleen Garcia-Crawford and Yassi Pressman are undoubtedly on everyone’s list. Intelligent, confident and strong, each of them is also known for a host of accomplishments that go beyond their being beautiful. These are just some of the reasons why they were chosen to be the brand ambassadors of Cream Silk, the Philippines’ number one hair care brand. At the launch of the brand’s latest innovation, the Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Color Revive, the three stars—with their enviable lush locks—led a stunning group of Ultimate Women—all beautiful and successful in their respective fields—for the Ultimate Dinner.
The bash was attended by select media and top beauty and style influencers and capped off the first day of Unilever’s three-day beauty summit in Tagaytay. Guests were driven from Anya Resort and welcomed by a bold black carpet leading to a canopy of fairy lights, the lush foliage of Narra Hill on one side and a fiery sunset view of Taal Lake on the other. After apéro, guests walked up a steep path to reach the dinner, which was set up gorgeously with overflowing fragrant flowers and candles. As the wine and champagne flowed, so did the conversations, which run gamut from the current events to work and personal beauty philosophies; it was hard not to feel inspired and empowered by the people around. Whether it was the young Enciso sisters Vern and Verniece talking about launching the next phase of their fragrance business to pioneering beauty entrepreneur Rissa Mananquil-Trillo discussing work and life balance, there was definitely something to learn from each person present. “Manila’s most beautiful are all together right now,” one guest commented; with boldfaced names such as Camille Co, Patricia Prieto, Rosenthal Tee and Unilever’s Dorothy-Ching Dee and Apples Aberin on hand, it was truly an evening for the Modern Filipina.
