In a short interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) via Instagram direct message, Michael said he has always wanted to work with Pia.

It can be remembered that Michael created the iconic blue ball gown Pia wore during her final walk at the Miss Universe 2016 pageant held at Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay City, in January 2017.

He also made a duplicate of the gown for Pia's wax figure at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong.

Michael only had good words to descibe his experience with Pia. "It has been always my dream to work with Pia Wurtzbach in a couture photoshoot.

"I have worked with her before for her Miss Universe farewell walk and Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum but it’s my first time to shoot her for my campaign.

"Pia is one of the kindest and most professional models I’ve ever worked with. She is so good and everyone in the shoot loved her energy and enthusiasm."

In one of the layouts, Pia channeled her inner Cinderella while wearing a silvery blue halter ball gown.

In another post, Pia looked like a modern version of Belle from Beauty and the Beast in her dazzling canary yellow gown with laser-cut details on the sides.

Pia's beau Jeremy Jauncey, who came to the studio to pick up his girlfriend, became the Prince Charming in one of the layouts.

Michael said, "Jeremy Jauncey is not part of the shoot. He came very late just to pick up Pia.

"It’s the very first time I’ve met him and I find him so gorgeous in person so I asked him if he wants to be in the shoot with Pia for our last take.

"He was so kind to say yes and that’s the reason why he is in the shoot."

Fashion designer Rhon Balagtas served as Pia's stylist for the shoot, while Dubai-based hair and makeup artist Jefferson Rivera was in charge of Pia's princess-like beauty look.
