“It’s in the click of my heels, the bend of my hair, the palm of my hand, the need of my care, ‘cause I’m a woman phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman, that’s me.” ― Maya Angelou

It was a night of beauty, fun, family and friendships as the Allure section of The Philippine Star honored 20 Women of Allure with a photo exhibit recently at the Power Plant Mall of Rockwell Center in Makati City.
