While it’s not unusual to see Carla Abellana looking drop-dead gorgeous, her latest Instagram snaps still got her over 2.4 million followers stunned.
Lensed by Niko Gonzales, it’s Carla like you’ve never seen before—flaunting her sexy feminine look in an-all black lace lingerie courtesy of stylist Chanda Espiritu. As for the beauty department, hairstylist Bianca Vergara kept her long tresses tousled to perfection, while makeup guru Carissa Medved opted for warm nude makeup punctuated by a gorgeous peach lip for that understated bombshell appeal.
On YouTube, the 36-year-old star opened up about the photoshoot, revealing that it was months in the making and was staged one year after she married her estranged husband Tom Rodriguez. She wrote, “We meant it to be dark, deep, messy, brave and bare. It was months in the making, but for very important reasons. Everything eventually fell into place, and I still felt I wasn’t ready to do it, but I just surrendered all control and anxieties and dove right in.
“It fell on October 23, 2022. Exactly a year after the day I got married. Why? Simply because it was the only day everyone in the entire team was available. Perhaps because of a more meaningful reason, we ask? Well, only God knows, really.”
She also shared how the move empowered her. “I said a prayer to God before that day started and reminded myself that I was going to do it not for anybody else, but for myself. I figured it was time to honor and celebrate ME. I thank God for my life and the very blessing that I am alive today.”
As of writing, Carla’s sexy snaps have clocked over 117,000 likes, brimming with praises from netizens, including her celebrity friends Verniece Enciso and Camille Prats. “Too gorgeous,” the former wrote.
