Dr. Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho just found themselves in a really awkward moment while in Paris, which at the same time proves just how popular she is in the beauty industry across the world!
The two are in the most romantic city in the world for this year's IMCAS World Congress, a convention on all things dermatology and plastic surgery-related. While browsing through the different merchants, the couple took an interest in a specific product, the Perfecto X, as they were approached by the merchandiser in charge. The lady started to demonstrate how the product is used, with Vicki as her subject. While talking about the product's specs, she goes on to say, "You know, in the Philippines, Vicki Belo?"
Vicki, not knowing how to react, simply replied, "Who? Vicki Belo? Yes, I know her."
"I've heard a lot about her... She used this machine already in her clinic," the lady continues while rubbing the infrared-slash-LED product on Vicki's skin.
"Ooh," Vicki says, amused. Hayden, who's been playing witness to this whole charade, is smiling on the sidelines and trying not to laugh.
The lady then adds, "She is actually very famous in the Philippines. She has many clinics and she uses our product as well... She's very famous there."
Hayden, who at this point, has probably had enough of the funny charade, finally says, "You know what we'll do? We'll go the Philippines, we'll go to Belo, go to Vicki Belo and ask her about the procedure...
"That's Vicki Belo," he points to his wife and smiles.
The merchandiser, who initially couldn't hide her surprise, got over her disbelief pretty quickly. "You're Vicki Belo?" she says excitedly.
The celebrity herself finally lives up to her popularity and introduces herself, even showing her event ID for proof. "Yeah, see, look, my name is Victoria Belo," she says.
And now that all the cards are on the table, the celebrity dermatologist finally agrees to buy the device, which means the merchandiser can now really claim that "Vicki Belo uses it!" She was able to meet the famous doctor in the flesh and secure a sale, while her product Perfecto X got free PR. What a lucky lady!
