Kiray Celis : The Mystical Revenge Transformation

Wazzup Pilipinas!

I can relate very well with all the "panglalait" to Kiray Celis during the Star Magic Ball. Most of us have a false interpretation of what is beautiful brought about by years of brainwashing mostly influenced by all those beauty contests and modelling competitions.

The photo collage of Kiray Celis has gotten the attention of many netizens and have expressed their confirmation that Kiray has indeed turned out beautiful thanks to the efforts of beauty stylist Fanny Serrano and professional lensman MJ Suayan.

They were able to bring out the inner beauty of the former child star most often referred to as the younger version of Pokwang and Mommy Dionisia Pacquiao.

Below is the message posted on Fanny Serrano's Facebook account:

Our secret formula for THE MYSTICAL REVENGE photoshoot of LADY KIRAY.

EFFORT! I got to truly exert effort in discovering the flaws of Kiray's facial features...and it's ONLY her droopy chinky eyes. Its my first time to see Kiray in person on that memorable day of our fotoshoot, though super fan nya naman ako sa lahat ng mga bata sa Kulit Bulilit for only one reason...kakaiba ang beauty nya sa lahat!

Why KIRAY CELIS?...When i saw her fotos at the Star Magic Ball at nabasa ang mga panglalait sa image nya on that event as one of the worst dressed stars, i got hurt, kahit hindi kami magkakilala ng personal and i told myself that sobra namang mamintas ang mga tao...personalan na talaga! Aaminin ko na NA-BWISIT AKO SA MGA
LAITERONG PINTASERONG nag-comment kay Kiray.

So what i did the next day, i called my kumareng Gina Marissa Tagasa to ask contact numbers of Kiray Celis at dumating naman sa akin ang kanyang personal #. And i texted her kung pwede ko syang tawagan. Nagkausap kami and i felt her unbelievable voice at sobrang excitement when i told that i needed her for a glamorous fashion shoot in one full day. No problem naman sya, so sked kami ng Sept 20, Friday, 9am-5pm. GO!

At my makeup chair...i exert effort of erasing Kiray's droopy eyes with my classic smokey eye makeup. contoured her nose, her cheekbones and jawline...after im done with her smokey eye makeup, that's when i realized that i got a WINNING MYSTICAL KIRAY ALBUM for my future BEAUTY BOOK.

For Mj Suayan effort...i simply told him to shoot all Kiray's angles para makapili kami ng OK lang na shot. NO grabeng photoshopping please!!!...and told him not to photoshop Kiray's nose and just look for an angle na medyo makadaya naman kami kahit kaunti lang. Hehehe...and if you will notice, i styled Kiray's hair that will cover the real shape of her face and gave it an additional deceiving look especially the image with a very straight hair...and i requested MJ to transform Kiray's skintone into a porcelain texture.

It was Albert Gonzales Fontanilla's effort ang pinakarelax na trabaho with his pinakasimpleng Literature for Kiray's Mystical album...ONE WORD DESCRIPTION na lang daw ang dapat kay Kiray para naka-focus lang talaga ang FB family sa Mystical image nya. Abah, feel ko naman ang suggestion ni Albert, eh di, GO!!!

For Kiray Celis effort naman...super ang concentration nya to elongate her neck and stretching her face forward to show her jawline and i taught her the model's bite to emphasize her chin and the model's movement to play with MJ's lens...and THAT'S IT THE ICONIC PHOTOSHOOT OF THE LADY KIRAY!



The comment from Netizens came in like a deluge:

 "You are a beautiful person tita Fanny! I am very much touched by this shoot you did with Kiray. You have made her inner goddess shine and her strong character stand out! This is how you empower women with your make-up. You inspired me. You showed a beauty that has surpassed the storm...You transformed Kiray into a beautiful, fierce, powerful woman!" - Mariz Dizon

"Such an amazing transformation! I can't believed that with your talent and expertise, you can actually change someone's outlook in life! I'm sure this really helps Kiray to overcome those bullying on her!" - Cecille Sandoval-Rementilla
"This is what make-up is all about!!! To make one look beautiful if not better, not make one look like a clown. Hats off to Fanny Serrano! So what does the bashers of Kiray have to say now? Ganda!" - Jeannie Javier-Malinao
"A work of art. Faces are your canvass. You are undoubtedly the Amorsolo of the world of cosmetology."- Gwen Lily Arribas-Benitez
"Sobrang ganda nya.. she's not ugly or what. Her features are just unique and one of a kind. I can relate with what she'd experienced with judgemental people and i hope that a lot of people will open theid minds about this issue because it really can't do anything good, instead it will let you down and pity yourself even. Hoping I'll have a chance to meet you Ms. Fanny Serrano."- Liezl Magana Castro
"OMG! I was really amazed with the outcome of the photoshoot. You have gifted hands and can definitely transform to a princess-look! Hands down for your craft Mr. Fanny.....Kudos to the team! You deserved an appreciation for the good deeds you have done to Kiray!"- Rose Hidalgo Morastel
and many other fabulous comments commending Fanny Serrano and MJ Suayan for the glamorous transformation and also expressing their appreciation to the team for being sympathetic to Kiray.

But I think the best comment was the one made by Mary Melody Remorca who commented in the form of a letter:
Dear Fanny,
Thank you so much for giving light on Ms. Celis' plight. Indeed, we are a people who get lured to look and give praises to those we deem as beautiful from an obvious point of view. Seldom do we reflect and see the "real beauty" and goodness of a person. Thus, when I saw this morning what you have decided and done to Ms. Celis, I am greatly blessed. Also, I am encouraged to move on and tell myself that there is hope for women like me who have looked upon as not to have measured up to the standards of beauty by the world. Maraming salamat sa iyong magandang puso, ngayon, may pag-asa pa po pala kaming mga nilalait na gumanda.
God bless your good and kind heart.

  1. At first, after seeing the collage, I was not able to identify the model. And I was surprised that Kiray Celis is the model. For me, beauty can be seen physically but you can feel it by how they act and speak. Kiray Celis should not be discriminated of being "Worst Dressed" or something like "the younger version of Pokwang and Dionisia Pacquiao" because we are all unique and we have to accept what is given to us. I believe, after people view the collage of Kiray, they would stop insulting her and some will start to admire her.

  2. I agree on what Ms. Daniella Sumagaysay said, I also was not able to identify the model. I can't believe that it was Kiray Celis knowing the fact that she always have the role of being ugly or being teased by her physical appearance.But I still do believe that everyone have their own beauty even if it's an inner beauty or outer one. Also I do also believe that everyone have their own flaws so no one can judge or discriminate someone. Kiray Celis is a funny comedian she's using her different facial expressions to make people laugh and I think that even without make up, she is beautiful and her face was her best asset. For me It's the best thing about her. =")) and I'll always be her fan ;)

  3. Compared to her first fashion taste, she looks so much better here. She was bullied many times in the social media because of her unique style but it isn't right to make fun of people. She can't react to all those negative comments because she's a comedian but, she's also human. I am hopeful that she will improve more and will be able to show her inner and outer beauty.

    Wazzup Pilipinas!

    This article is very interesting because it talks about the true definition of "beauty". Having a pointed nose, pretty brown eyes with nice and sexy lips should be the least-considered when defining the word "beauty". I believe that Kiray Celis is indeed beautiful, inside and out.

  6. Way to go, Kiray Celis. :) Show them that you are beautiful.
    Anyway, it should not be always considered beautiful when you have sexy curves, luscious lips and tan skin, should it? We should always base one's beauty inside. What her heart tells and what her mind speaks. In this world, we should not be perfect, but true.
