Throwback Thursday: Celebrity Instagram Photos of Summer 2013
Giving summer one last look by way of...a Throwback Thursday!
(SPOT.ph) And just like that, summer is over. As we enter the wet month of June, we look back at some of the best beach, vacation, and adventure photos that celebrities posted on Instagram. For good measure, we checked a few hashtags and selected the photos that best illustrate the last two months-we mean things like Steven Tyler dropping by Ministop in Makati, and the insane crowd in Boracay during Labor Day weekend, which people conveniently dubbed, gulp, LaBoracay.
Toward the end of March, Heart Evangelista (@iamhearte) had a big fight with her parents over boyfriend Senator Chiz Escudero. She put the Holy Week break to good use by going to the beach to relax, get away from it all, and get her bearings back. After a series of sad posts, she finally shared one with a caption that read: "feeling better...:)"
Around the same time, a group that consisted of, among others, fashion designer Rajo Laurel, production genius Robbie Carmona, celebrities Divine Lee, her boyfriend Victor Basa, Bianca Gonzalez, and Liz Uy (@lizzzuy) headed to Huma Island in Palawan for some fun. Liz regrams Bianca’s photo of the two of them enjoying the hot tub.
Speaking of Bianca Gonzalez, she posted a photo of the Boracay sunset, calling it the "most beautiful sunset in the world." As the television personality is known to have photos of her doing cartwheels taken at famous landmarks during her travels, it would be safe to assume that this is her doing yet another cartwheel.
It seems the majority of Manila was in Boracay during Labor Day Weekend. We found this photo of Instagram user @jacqmonteverde when we explored the hashtag #laboracay2013:
Julia Barretto (@juliabarretto), meanwhile, swam with a dolphin named Zac. She even let him kiss her.
Supermodel and Unilever PR Head for Personal Care Apples Aberin (@applesaberin) shared a photo of her and Tweetie de Leon, taken during the Unilever three-day event in Pangulasian, Palawan last April. "With my best friend and soul sister @instagee," she wrote.
The Tubbataha Reef appeared on our feed a few times this summer, with Teresa Herrera (@terresaherrera27) visiting the famous diving spot during Holy Week, and Cristalle Belo (@cristallebelo) ending her summer there last week. Check out this photo of her as a mermaid.
It’s been a pretty rad summer, with celebrities coming over for mall openings, concerts, and sports clinics. There was, of course, Sarah Jessica Parker, who opened SM Aura. Rajo Laurel (@rajolaurel) shared a photo of SJP having some halo-halo.
And then there was Vin Diesel, who came over for the red carpet premiere of The Fast and The Furious 6. He rode a jeep and wore nothing but wife beaters the entire time he was here.
NBA player Yao Ming came to town, as well. FHM Philippines (@fhmphilofficial) shared this amusing photo of the baller with VP Jejomar Binay.
Steven Tyler and the rest of Aerosmith were in town for a one-night only show on May 8. They arrived on May 5 and immediately explored the city. IG user @foxfire322 saw Tyler at a Ministop in Makati and quickly took a photo.
We knew Dominique Cojuangco (@dominiquecojuangco) was at the Avicii gig and enjoyed it because she posted two photos of the May 15 concert. This is one of them:
Anne Curtis (@annecurtissmith) was one of the many who were excited about the Wanderland music festival, held on May 18. Post-concert, she uploaded a photo of her with Temper Trap, one of the bands that played during the fest.
And just last week, Project Runway judge Nina Garcia was in the country for Philippine Fashion Week. Rissa Mananquil (@rissamananquil), a huge fan, posted a photo of her with Ms. Garcia and gushed: "Sooo lucky to be invited to the intimate welcome dinner for #ninagarcia."
