KC Concepcion was the biggest winner at
the first Us Girls August Awards held last Thursday (August 20) at the
New Eastwood Mall Open Park in Libis, Quezon City.
The singer-actress took home the "Us Girls Icon Award" for exemplifying the qualities the program Us Girls is all about: smart, updated with the latest trends, independent, adventurous, and a role model to everyone. KC said the special award will empower her more as she continues to carry on her career and advocacies.
Fellow Kapamilya stars Kim Chiu of Tayong Dalawa and Anne Curtis of The Wedding were also recognized for their style and beauty at what was billed as the hippest fashion awards in the Philippines.
Kim, who shared some of her beauty secrets through a recorded video message, was named "Face of the Year" with models Tweety De Leon and Isabelle Daza. Anne, on the other hand was one of the "Most Fashionable Women of the Year" together with models Bea Soriano, Divine Lee, Bianca Valerio, and TV Patrol World entertainment reporter Marie Lozano.
The beautiful women have tipped the young ladies who have graced the event that they need not to spend big bucks in order to be fashionable. Valerio said that her clothes during that night came from a thrift shop but still she looked very fabulous.
Also awarded were "Make-up Artists of the Year" Jigs Mayuga, Barbi Chan, Bobby Carlos and Krist Bansuelo and "Stylists of the Year" Rey Ilagan, Bianca Santiago, Liz Uy, and Pam Quinones.
The unpredictable weather did not stop hosts Angel Aquino, Megan Young, and Iya Villania and their fabulous fans from all over the metro in crowning the year's top performers in the world of fashion.
Us Girls named the event "August" after the word which means "majestic" and "impressive." The winners were determined based on poll votes cast online in the show's website and thorough the deliberation of the program's staff.
The glamorous night was highlighted with brilliant performances from the Ballet Philippines, La Sallian Orchestra, acoustic royalty Princess, balladeer Ronnie Liang and a fashion show featuring the designs of young Filipino designers Reian Mata, Charina Sarte, and Tippi Ocampo.
Us Girls airs every Sunday at 7 pm on Studio 23.
