Filipina models never fail to shine abroad, snagging huge projects with international brands left and right. One model who continues to make waves in the fashion scene is Hannah Locsin. And in case this is your first time hearing her name, FYI, this 24-year-old model is currently based in New York where she is signed with Women Management, the same agency that represents Coco Rocha, Behati Prinsloo, and many more. You’ll also recognize her from a slew of Gucci campaigns—or maybe by her signature bowl cut hair!
Well, it seems like Hannah will be adding yet another feather to her cap. We recently saw an Instagram video teasing a Maybelline commercial in the works—and we immediately spotted this Pinay beauty!
The video was shared by Erin Parsons, one of the brand’s global makeup artists. “11 gorgeous models in 2 full throttle days for one epic Maybelline commercial,” she writes in the post caption. Erin is also Gigi Hadid’s makeup artist, and she was the one responsible for her maternity shoot look.
The video features all the models and their on-point beauty looks. Hannah was the seventh girl to appear. She flaunted a “no makeup” makeup look with dewy skin and just-pinched cheeks.
True to her tomboy chic style, she was wearing a short-sleeved, silk button-down layered on a white tee and black skinny jeans. She is joined by other fresh-faced models hailing from different countries like Korea and Italy. We even saw another model called Skye Daru, who turns out to be half Filipina!
Not much has been revealed about the commercial, but the director, Jennifer Massaux, shared a snippet of what it was like to film it. It entailed a ton of reflectors, a huge camera, and someone assigned to hold a little leaf blower for windblown hair. Like most of their commercials, this was filmed in the busy streets of New York.
We wonder what kind of scene Hannah will be featured in, and what the other models will do! Whatever the case, it seems like she’s excited for everyone to see it because she commented three hearts and one heart eyes emoji on Jennifer's post!
TBH, we're getting major heart eyes right now just thinking about the commercial and the Pinay models in it! There’s no word yet on the film’s release but we’ll make sure to keep you posted.
Congratulations on another achievement, Hannah!
