Fashion Face-Off: Models in their 40s versus ladies half their age


Presenting the ladies, whose beauty flagged the "I defy" age campaign of Olay Body via a fashion show, which became a reunion of sorts among the runway beauties of PMAP (Philippine Models Association of the Philippines). Can you tell who are in their 40s and 20s?

Last April 13, at the Fashion Walk of Greenbelt 5, Olay Body gathered some of the most popular names in the world of modeling then and now for an ultimate fashion face-off—which was hosted by Issa Litton and Marc Nelson.

Former beauty queens, who are now in their 40s, strut their stuff once more with today's most sought-after models on the runway.

There's Marina Benipayo, 1992 Bb. Pilipinas Maja-International, who showed off her killer legs alongside Phoemela Baranda.

The 35-year-old Joey Mead, who displayed her well-toned arms, which are still a match to Valerie delos Santos's.

Other ladies who walked the ramp were former Supermodels Grace Tagle and Lou Bunyi, former Bb. Pilipinas title-holders Izza Gonzales-Agana, Abbygale Arenas, and Patty Betita–who all had proven that that beauty doesn't wear off as you age.

They shared the spotlight with 2000 Bb. Pilipinas-International Joanna Peñalosa and catwalk favorites Sanya Smith, Dindi de Leon, Jackie Miller, and Wendy Tabusalla.


For the finale, the three Olay Body ambassadors Miriam Quiambao, Angel Aquino, and Daphne Oseña also walked the ramp, and gave their take on "age-defying" beauty:

Miriam: "Eat right. Work out. Be happy! These are sure-fire ways to stay youthful."

Daphne: "Choose comfort. Age is just a number. Flaunt. Show it off!"

Angel: "Skin is the best makeup. If you have it, flaunt it!"
