Pinay Danica Magpantay Wins Supermodel of the World 2011

Philippines very own Danica Flores Magpantay won the 2011 Ford Supermodel of the World competition, held in New York City last Saturday, January 22, 2011.

17-year-old Danica became the first ever Filipina and second Asian beauty to win the prestigious pageant which was conceptualized in 1981. Last year, Charlene Almarvez won 1st runner-up, while Charo Ronquillo placed 3rd in 2006. The first Asian country, however, to bag the title was South Korea in 2008.

Danica, who is a UP Fine Arts student and stands 5’9" and weighs 109 lbs, bested more than 70 contestants from all over the world in the international modeling contest established by Eileen Ford in 1980. Back then, when it was called “Face of the '80s", Filipina beauty queen-model Melanie Marquez represented New York City in the said competition.

Aside from the title, Danica won a US$250,000 (P11.12 million) modeling contract with Ford Models.
