Danica Magpantay bested more than 50 other supermodels from all over the world and bagged the Ford Supermodel of the World 2011 title in the competition held in New York last January 22, 2011. Danica is the first ever Filipina to win the largest and most prestigious modeling competition.
Two Filipinas have already earned top places in the tilt—Charo Ronquillo placed third in 2006 and Chat Almarvez, second, just last year—but it was Danica who finally nailed it and took home the prize. She won a $250,000 modeling contract with Ford Models.
Danica is the daughter of Lala Flores, a Supermodel of the World-Philippines (1990) winner herself. Lala won the Crest Best Smile award at the international event. She is now one of the most sought-after professional makeup artists.
Congratulations, Danica! We’re very proud of you!
