Fab Face: Charo Ronquillo

If someone called me the Asian Kate Moss, I could die happy right then and there. OK, that wouldn't work considering I'm not Asian, but it did happen to Filipino Model Charo Ronquillo, who is officially dubbed the Asian Kate Moss by the modeling world.

The 20-year-old has also broken a world record; she's the first model from the Far East to win the Ford Supermodel of the World Search contest. Can this gal get any luckier? Yes, she can because she's blessed with big eyes, flawless skin, and a svelte body.

But as the story usually goes, such was not always the case. In high school, Charo was a tomboy with short hair and ugly teeth. Lucky for her (and us), she started taking care of herself and thus a model emerged. She's since worked the catwalks of New York Fashion Week and has posed for Teen Vogue and Marie Claire Paris. Oh, and here's a fun fact: Charo was one of Chloe Dao's models on Season Two of Project Runway!

To see more of Charo Ronquillo's pretty face,

P.S. Thanks for the story idea, manay!

I don't too much for Kate Moss. I've never really seen the big deal with her. As for this girl looking like her... yeah I can see some similarites. Whatever. Good for her and her success.

I think she looks way prettier than Kate Moss but maybe it's just because I'm getting tired of seeing her (Kate Moss) everywhere.

i'm sorry i just assumed that "won" meant first place in the supermodel contest. charo was the first asian to win one of the awards-but it was third place.
