MANILA — Lorin Gutierrez is drawing comparisons with her mother, beauty queen-actress Ruffa Gutierrez, after sharing over the weekend photos of her beach getaway.
The 16-year-old model, Gutierrez’s eldest daughter with former husband Yilmaz Bektas, recently had a family vacation in Palawan, going by her recent Instagram updates.
Posting photos of her in her swimwear, Lorin reminded followers of her mother Ruffa’s pageant days in 1993, when she placed third in Miss World.
Even Ruffa, in a previous interview, agreed that her “panganay” has what it takes to represent the Philippines in an international pageant — and it’s not merely because of Lorin’s looks.
“Ang importante kasi is iyong may utak, e,” Ruffa previously said, noting Lorin’s priority of finishing her studies. “Hindi lang iyon focus puro katawan. Second na lang iyon.”
