Model Kelsey Merritt considers ABS-CBN actress Liza Soberano as her "girl crush forever."

Performing on stage may seem easy for Liza Soberano, but walking on the runway is a different story.

In a short interview with the press during Bench Fashion Week, the Bagani actress admitted, "I was so nervous though. It's really hard to pull it off."

The brand held a three-day event, from March 9 to 11, at Bench Tower in Bonifacio Globcal City, Taguig, to launch its Spring/Summer 2018 collection.

Bea Alonzo was part of the fashion show for Kashieca.

On her fellow endorsers Liza and Kelsey Merritt, she said, "Sabi ko nga sa kanya [Kelsey], kung puwede akong makipagpalit ng mukha sa kanya or kay Liza."

She added, "I wish! Sana kasing-ganda ko itong dalawang 'to!"

Kelsey described Liza and Bea as her "girl crushes forever."

She exclaimed, "They're beautiful and they represent the brand very well."

Being the model among the bunch, Kelsey was asked how Liza fared during the fashion show, Kelsey answered, "She'd beat me at my job!"

Carla Abellana was happy to share the runway with the two Kapamilya stars and model.

She told, "Today, this particular fashion show mas comfortable ako kesa sa very first one.

"Mas special din kasi ngayon kasi kumpleto kaming apat."
