Filipina’s Top Model: Charo Ronquillo

Charo Ronquillo

Nineteen-year-old Charo Ronquillo is touted to be the next Anna Bayle, the Filipina who was the supermodel in the ’80s. She is based in New York but plans to work (and live) more often in Paris.

When she was 17 years she won Ford Supermodel Of The World Philippines. As the winner, she’s immediately signed on as a CalCarries International Philippines model. She’s done runway shows for Nanette Lepore, Lacoste, Zaldy for L.A.M.B. by Gwen Stefani, Tory Burch, Norma Kamali, Sisley, United Colors of Benetton, Armani Exchange and Kenneth Cole, among others.Only a year and a half after becoming the first Asian model to make it to the top three in the Ford Models’ Supermodel of the World competition, Ronquillo has shot for top retailers, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s, Ann Taylor, BCBG by Max Azria, Catherine Malandrino, J Crew. She has recently done “go-sees” for Prada, YSL, Marc Jacobs, Richard Chai, Jil Sander, Philip Lim, Valentino, Badgely Mishka, Issey Miyake and Vera Wang.

Unfortunately I didn’t find a lot of photo’s of her (anyone?) but found a few at Asian Models Blog.

  1. She is beautiful. She’s currently in the Ann Taylor Loft website. FYI: the supermodel of the world winner of this year is Korean!

  2. I moved part of this post to More…, as I felt there was too much text on the home page. Hope you don’t mind Marco. πŸ™‚

  3. What a remarkable picture! The slender figure, the stunning, wide-set eyes. Definitely a runway model. Bravo Marco.

  4. Wow…looks like time really is in retrospect.

    This girl is from Vancouver, Canada, she was an old acquaintance of mine from way back. With that being said, I guess I lost my opportunity to be with her when I was younger. It seems she’s doing quite well, I wish her best in her future endeavor

    Otherwise keep up the usual good work Asian Sirens.
