When do you feel most beautiful?

WORDS WORTH - Mons Romulo (Pilipino Star Ngayon) - November 9, 2014 - 12:00am

It’s not enough to be physically beautiful nowadays. And wearing branded clothes will not help make one stand out in a crowd either. Physical beauty is transient but possessing inner beauty by being kind towards others and doing good without expecting anything in return is far more lasting and will definitely make one feel good and beautiful. Now let’s hear some of the most attractive women in our country today share with us when they feel most beautiful.

Kai Lim, entrepreneur, Cura V

I feel most beautiful when I am at a gathering or event with my husband and my kids. I think it’s natural for girls to enjoy dressing up and sharing this experience with my daughter is precious. My daughter, Yumiko, enjoys it a lot. Of course, the exchange of compliments also adds novelty to the overall feeling.  

Celine Lopez, writer

I feel the most beautiful when I’m myself with people I love. There is no shame and confusion in the truth. That in its singular message is beautiful and it penetrates your soul. You need to own it.

Angela Alarcon, stylist

I feel the most beautiful when I am in love — whether it be with a man, a project or just where I am in life. I think self-love is important too.

Rocio Olbes, bag designer

I feel my most beautiful when I am relaxed and natural with no makeup on and at home with my friends and family. I believe a woman is at her most beautiful when she is natural, relaxed and comfortable in her own skin.

Valerie Clacio Weigmann, Miss World Philippines 2014

I feel most beautiful when I’m involved in an act of kindness or when I’m working for one of my advocacies. We all know that looks will eventually fade but our actions, especially those that tend to improve the lives of others, will echo and remain throughout our lives. 

Carol Masibay Garcia, 1971 Mutya ng Pilipinas

I feel most beautiful when I wake up in the morning and thank the Lord for giving everything to me beautifully. My family, good friends and the people that appreciate my existence. It makes my heart delightful.

Nicole Villarojo, brand manager

Surprisingly, it isn’t when I’ve just stepped out of the salon, all done up for an event. I feel most beautiful when I am completely at peace with myself and the people around me, have had a good night’s sleep and know that I have done something good in the world.

Monique Borja-Gonzalez, entrepreneur and yoga teacher

Beauty is as much a state of mind as it is an appearance. Nowadays, it is the thought of becoming a mother that makes me glow. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my pregnancy over the past months, very excited for this new role I am about to embrace. Living in the city has gotten me to crave open space every now and then — I feel beautiful when I am outdoors and around nature. I feel the same beauty when I connect with music, in moments of ease during and after a yoga class. There is definitely something about being in sync with your mind, body and soul. Most of all I feel beautiful when my husband smiles at me.
