Congratulations to all of us! The Philippines is now the Guiness World Record holder for having 2225 people in one fashion show! And I'm part of it! Cool! I can now brag this to all of my future children and grand children. (Futuristic? HAHA.)
I couldn't tell you the details of the event since the models were in the backstage, but I heard from earthlinggorgeous.com that there were 47 people who were disqualified by the Guinness World of Record Rep Ms. Kristie Bennett for not having satisfied the criteria as a runway model. :( I didn't know that. T_T Good thing at that time I didn't, or else I'd back out. Haha! I hope I'm not one of those 47 people.. :c
According again to earthlinggorgeous.com, the criteria was that the models should: 1) show qualities of a professional model and therefore must be able to walk to the beat with ease; 2) must walk with head held up high; 3) must be able to adhere to the standards of being a model and 4) must reach the point/area of the runway to be counted. (P.S. That was not the exact words.)
HMP. Whatever. All that matters was that I enjoyed the walk. It was a roller coaster ride feeling. :)
We were there from 10AM-9PM. Almost 12 hours of waiting, styling, putting make-up on, dressing up, walking, and mentally preparing and it didn't stop us. It was all worth it!
Here were some photos I just grabbed. I didn't brought my camera so I had to depend on others. :)
Rehearsal time after the registration. This was tricky. Exhilarating!
R2R bags. :) I love the clutches more! Too bad I got the tote.
FUREEBIIIESSS! HAHA! :D We had our free lunch and early dinner and this! And of course being a part of the history. :>
With my blogger friends. :)
I say kudos to all of the organizers! From Glorietta to AVA and to all who participated and exerted maximum effort to this event. Our efforts paid off! :)
