Malaysian-Chinese actress Carmen Soo is slowly making her own spot in local showbiz. Aside from the television series Kahit Isang Saglit, her local fans will see her on posters and billboards of Petit Monde soon.
The foreign actress and model returned from her short trip to Malaysia last week, November 18, in time for the photo shoot of Petit Monde's newest ad campaign for the Holiday season. For this campaign, said Carmen, the company will have materials for magazines, newspapers, and other print ads.
During the shoot, the onlookers said that the Malaysian model looked classy in the dresses she wore, which complimented her charming face. Although she had no idea about the dresses of Petit Monde, Carmen managed to project its goal for its target market—sweet yet daring, classy yet adventurous.
Carmen entered the modeling industry at age 17. Before Petit Monde, she had already endorsed known products such as Ponds, Pantene and the luxury watch Longines.
To be able to project the clothing brand well, the professional actress-model did a quick visit to the brand's stores and checked out the clothing before the photo shoot.
