MANILA – Fans of Maymay Entrata may soon see the actress on the New York Fashion Week (NYFW) runway.
This after Entrata revealed on Thursday that she has auditioned to be part of the prestigious fashion show.
“Nag-audition po ako sa New York Fashion Week,” she said during the press conference for the 20th anniversary of Knowledge Channel, which launched her as one of the hosts of the show “Puno ng Buhay.”
“Hindi po biro kasi ‘yun, so hindi ko pa po talaga alam kung sakaling matutuloy po ‘yun,” she added.
Shortly after the program, Entrata said during a media huddle that she had a “live” audition for NYFW as a muse of Dubai-based Furne One, the same designer who invited the actress to grace the Arab Fashion Week.
“Iyong designer pa rin po si Ms. Furne One, parang online po. Bale pinost lang po ‘yung audition ko. Live po ‘yun, hindi lang si Ms. Furne One [ang nandoon] kundi ‘yung mga… Sino nga ba ‘yun? Iyong mga nasa New York Fashion Week, mga malalaking tao doon,” she said.
“Kung tanggap ako, e di tanggap. Pero alamin po natin.”
When asked if she is planning to pursue modeling full-time in the United States should she make it to NYFW, Entrata replied: “Ay, hindi naman po.”
As for her dream designer or brand as a model, the actress replied in jest: “Ay wala po. Hindi ko nga po kilala ‘yan. Ang alam ko lang buy one, take one!”
The next NYFW event is set to kick off this Friday, September 6. The fashion show is held in February and September of each year.
Some of the Filipino personalities who have walked the NYFW runway include beauty queens Catriona Gray, Pia Wurtzbach, Janine Tugonon, and Valerie Weigmann, and plus-size model Kat Gumabao.
It can be recalled that last year, supermodel Tyra Banks expressed her approval of Entrata’s runway walk after seeing a video of it on Twitter.
