Kim Chiu, Aljur Abrenica at YES! 100 Most Beautiful Stars launch
Kris Bernal, Melissa Ricks, and Jason Abalos were also spotted at the June 22 launch of the <em>YES!</em> that rounds up the fairest of them all.
Kim Chiu was hailed as the fairest of them all at the launch of the YES! Magazine Special: 100 Most Beautiful Stars 2010 on June 22. The Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition winner landed the cover, following the footsteps of previous cover girls Marian Rivera (2009), KC Concepcion (2008) and Judy Ann Santos (2007).
Instead of ranking the stars, YES! put them in over 25 categories: the A-listers (John Lloyd Cruz, Piolo Pascual, Gerald Anderson), the Second Coming (Jolina Magdangal, Claudine Barretto), the Apprentices (Lovi Poe, Shaina Magdayao, John Prats), and more.
When asked how she felt about being dubbed the most beautiful of the bunch, Chiu laughed as she told PEP.ph: "Ako? Parang hindi naman ako kagandahan! Nahihiya ako kasi siyempre ang dami-daming artista na iba, maganda, mestiza. Ako Intsik lang!" The 20-year-old star added that she is "thankful" for the privilege.
Other stars featured in the annual list also attended the launch like actors Aljur Abrenica, Kris Bernal, Bangs Garcia, Jason Abalos, Melissa Ricks, Mercedes Cabral, and Ron Morales; and singers Ogie Alcasid, Chris Cayzer, Jay-R, and Geoff Taylor.
The YES! Magazine Special: 100 Most Beautiful Stars is available in newsstands, bookstores and supermarkets nationwide for P150. Photos by Ryan Ong.
