Name: Cassandra Laforteza
Agency: Yeoh Models (Philippines)
Vital Stats: 32-23-24
Why we love her: Although she has been a familiar face on the local scene, it took me a while to get hold of her name. Luckily, I overheard a model called her and from then, I’ve turned to Google to view her portfolio. She’s been under Yeoh Models, an agency known for introducing Supreme-like faces on the catwalk. Living and breathing the aesthetic of his agency and mentor (Agent Joshua Egwaras), the model-student has been loved by so many Filipino designers and photographers. The out-of-average look has worked for her advantage, even carrying and owning her Tony and Guy blonde tresses to the runways.
What separates Cassandra to the others is her warm and magnetic personality. Whenever you approach her after shows, she eliminates that strong runway presence and welcomes you with a big smile and hug. Even an intern-friend of mine at a fashion magazine told me that she is really down-to-earth and beautiful. No need to further explain cause as far as we know her, a humble persona plus a mermaid-like face is simply impressive!
Bless the models!
