MANILA, Philippines - People Asia magazine presents its annual “Women of Style and Substance 2009” at a glamour-filled show hosted by STAR columnist RJ Ledesma at the EDSA Shangri-La Manila’s Garden Ballroom today, Sept. 22.

The women in the prestigious roster are the epitome of beauty, grace under pressure, intelligence and strength. They were chosen not only because of their popularity but also because of their influence. Each lady is a commanding force in her field, from media, government and business to design and philanthropy. Each proves that not only can she excel in a competitive field but do it with elegance and style.

Among People Asia’s “Women of Style and Substance” are Sen. Loren Legarda, ABS-CBN Foundation Inc.’s Gina Lopez, the silently strong and steady Jinkee Pacquiao, wife of the world’s greatest pound-for-pound boxer Manny Pacquiao, beautiful and accomplished hotelier Monique Trinidad-Toda and working heiress Camille Villar. The five are on the cover of this month’s issue of People Asia.

People Asia’s other “Women of Style and Substance” are Honorary Consul to Monaco Fortune Ledesma, broadcast journalist Pia Arcangel, chef and TV host of Quickfire Rosebud Benitez, Mega Publishing Group CEO Sari Yap, Smart’s Annie Naval, Goldilocks’ marketing director Pinky Yee, Beverly Hills 6750’s Suzette Hahn-Lopez, Bayo’s Corcor Bitong and Lynn Agustin, Silk Cocoon’s designer Katrina Goulbourn-Feist, Santa Rosa City Mayor Arlene Arcillas-Nazareno, CamSur’s first lady and entrepreneur Lara Villafuerte and Aurora Gov. Bellaflor Angara-Castillo.

People Asia will pay tribute to these extraordinary women in a red-letter affair sponsored by Edsa Shangri-La Manila, SM Department Store, HSBC, Thai Airways, The Philippine STAR, Grendha, CardKing, QualiBet, Hype Ardent Skin Care and the Australian College of Hair Design and Beauty. A photo exhibit of the “Women of Style and Substance” will unfold at Greenbelt 3 in Makati City from Sept. 23 to Oct. 11.
