14 Year-Old Samantha Gomez Wins Ford Supermodel Philippines 2011!!!

There are 3 things that I love the most about covering the Philippine edition of Supermodel.

First, the whole contest takes only about an hour. Second, the girls are not chosen because they have commercially beautiful faces but because they know how to look amazing on the catwalk and in photos and Third, Joey Espino, the man behind Fashion Week and Supermodel Philippines gives the most heart-warming speeches that always emphasize the importance of God and Family.

And last night, Joey got extra-emotional because after 30 years, the Philippines finally won the Supermodel title. Joey, you are  right, dreams do come true when you keep God in your heart! In January this year, Danica Magpantay won the Ford Supermodel of the World 2011 bringing much honor to the country.

Of course the highlight of the night was Samantha Gomez the 14-year-old skyscraper that burned the catwalk and won the Supermodel Philippines 2011 title. Samantha Gomez, who is 5’10”, also took the Photogenic award.
