She looks good enough to be a movie star!
So this is how Barbara Cruz, Manila’s latest “mystery girl,” looks when totally transformed and made over. During a “reveal party” held at the Baypark, Manila, Barbara was finally identified as a 21-year-old I.T. consultant in a BPO company. She first caught the attention of many people due to her thick brows and old-fashioned (Maria Clara) way of dressing.
It turns out she also has a big secret – she is hairy all over and is afraid to succumb to modern ways of removing bodily hair.
Realizing that this mystery woman needs rescuing, the people behind Veet launched a search for Barbara to help her discover her modern self, thus the Catch and Shoot Barbara contest.
She recalls: ” I was surprised when people started following me both online and at malls. Apparently may catch and shoot order pala ako. Then my friends showed me the promo later on and they kept urging me to finally go meet VEET to become a modern woman.”
The biggest lesson she learned from the experience? “I think that all women have to find their confidence and a make over is one of them. You have to be open to improvements on yourself and you have to get more confidence. Thanks to Veet for helping me discover my beauty.’’
Here’s Barbara posing with the grand prize winners of the Catch and Shoot contest:
Congratulations everyone ! 😉
Judging from this invitation I received, something exciting is cooking up tomorrow, April 20 2010. I’ve written about this “hairy, scary” lady before and I learned that she’s been the subject of a (wo)manhunt by leading depilatory brand Veet which has embarked on their great summer challenge of making over Barbara. And now, the new Barbara is set to be revealed in an exclusive poolside party at the Aquasphere, Baypark in Malate, Manila.
The event will also announce the winners of cool gadgets like a Macbook Pro, Apple iPhone, PSP Slim and iPod Touch in the Catch and Shoot Barbara contest.
In the meantime, here are some of the weekly winners:
Weekly Winners in Catch and Shoot Barbara Larry Espenilla, April Pazcoguin, Julie Gail Malana, and Nikko Santos are awarded gift certificates by Veet brand manager Isabel Marfori.
Weekly Winners April Rose Pazcoguin, Diabelle Joy Pazcoguin, Joana C. Brusas and Noemi C. Brusas also show off their gift certificates while posing with Veet brand manager Isabel Marfori.
Please wait for the final round of our Veet contest after the reveal party 😉 cheers!
