Phoemela Baranda redefines "sexy" as "more mature and more confident"

Phoemela Baranda: "It's important that I have a team that I trust. And of course, it's FHM naman, it's my third time, and I hope people will still love it—not just like, but love!"

Phoemela Baranda is no stranger in the pages of FHM Philippines as she already graced the magazine back in November 2004 and June 2006.

What makes this third appearance hotter than before is Phoem’s nearly-naked return on the cover this February.

It has been about a decade since her last cover, but the years cannot dent this supermodel.

“I think a woman is sexier when she’s more mature and more confident about herself. Some guys might like it, some might not, but as for myself, I’m more confident about how I look and how I feel. It comes with maturity. I’m wiser, sexier, hahaha!”

She adds, “I’m so excited!We even shot two different sets—one for online and one for the magazine."

And speaking of love, February is all about Valentine’s Day.

Phoem dropped hints about her Valentine this year, but she revealed more on what she wants on that special day. “As a girlfriend, I would give surprise birthday parties or whatever. But for Valentine’s Day, I like to be the one surprised,” says Phoem. “I’m very mababaw lang; just a simple dinner and flowers would make my day.”
