Georgina Wilson Says Borgy Changed Her Style He got her to trade her ballet flats for Chucks.

It Girl, in-demand endorser, and Asia’s Next Top Model’s new host, Georgina Wilson is at the top of her game. Just recently, the lady with gams for days was introduced as the new ambassador of classic sneaker brand, Converse—and she proudly and happily freaked out!

"Launching my newest endorsement today: the legendary, Converse. Wearing my white Chuck Taylor All Stars and feeling pretty freaking lucky right now"- Georgina

We all grew up with our worn out Chucks (some of us still keep and use the pair we had from high school), but Georgina was actually a late Converse bloomer. At the launch of the brand’s print-tastic Spring/Summer 2015 collection, she revealed that before she met boyfriend Borgy Manotoc, her style basically revolved around dresses and ballet flats. But he influenced a change in the way she dressed.

On a trip to Japan with him and some of her friends including designer Rajo Laurel, she walked into a store when Borgy showed her the Converse X Play by Comme des Garcons collab.With added pressure from her it-girl besties (Liz Uy has been spotted in Chucks), Georgina gamely bought a pair and said she'd give it a shot. After wearing the hearts on her shoe, she never looked back. “They’re the comfiest shoes in the world,” she says. "I never travel without them."
