Years after the 2012 Miss Universe pageant where she won as first runner up, Filipina beauty queen Janine Tugonon became a part of the international modeling scene and is now the first Filipina to ever get featured by Victoria’s Secret.
Tugonon’s gig with the fashion brand is with Pink, its new line of fashion clothes for college women. The ad showed the challenges of college life. Tugonon starred in it along with three other models.
Tugonon grew up in the small town of Balanga in Bataan, Pampanga and was raised by a family of farmers.
After leaving the country to pursue her pharmacological studies, she lived in the United States and took up various modelling stints for several brands.
The 26-year-old is currently under the modelling agency MSA Models and has modelled for brands such as Wells Fargo and Walmart.
Tugonon joined Binibining Pilipinas twice after losing to a friend in 2011. She won Miss Universe Pilippines in 2012 and represented the country in the Miss Universe pageant in Las Vegas, USA, where she won first runner-up .
If the beauty queen ever makes it to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, she would be the first Filipina to do so.
