From Chuvaness blog
Danica Flores Magpantay won the Supermodel of the World title in New York City—the first time a Filipina has bagged the title.
Last year, Charlene Almarvez won 1st runner-up, while Charo Ronquillo placed 3rd in 2006
Danica Flores Magpantay is only 17 years old. She is a UP Fine Arts student who stands 5’9″ and weighs 109 lbs. She gets a US$250,000 (P11.12 million) modeling contract from Ford Models
GMA news adds that,
“Models from over 50 countries joined the international modeling contest held in New York City Saturday. The prestigious Ford Supermodel of the World was established by Eileen Ford in 1980, and was called “Face of the 80s” back then.
In October last year, Danica bagged the Ford Supermodel of the World-Philippines title, the same title her mom Lala Flores had won 21 years before.
