Robert de Claro and Julianne Susie Arcenio wins Picture Flawless

THE FINALS OF Picture Flawless search for their model-endorsers to cap their 8th anniversary celebration was held Monday night. Robert de Claro, the Flawlessly Dangerous candidate, and Julianne Susie Arcenio, who's tagged Purely Flawless, won the first prize of P800,000 cash each and their own giant billboards in EDSA. The hosts were Butch Francisco and Tess Bomb, with Lorna Tolentino and Alyssa Alano as special guests. All are Flawless endorsers, along with Judy Ann Santos, Richard Gutierrez, Mark Herras and Yasmien Kurdi. There were 11 female and 12 male candidates, but three of the females didn't make it on finals night. Flawless owner Rubby Sy, who thought of organizing the contest, is very pleased with the winners.

Julianne is from Bulacan and it's her dad who urged her to join the search. Her own mom made her outfit that night. Robert is a ceritified male nurse who grew up in Okinawa where his dad was assigned for sometime. The first runner ups are Aristotle Corrales and Doris Cheong. The second runners up are Rafael Nanquil and Abigael Arazo. Special winners are Apple Seva as Flawless Photogenic, Keina Fawaz as Flawless Witty, John VIllamor as Flawless Personality, Cerafin Letim as Flawless Sweetheart, and Jennifer Ragaza as Flawless Forever.

Lorna announced the winners. Asked if she'd miss her late husband Rudy Fernandez this Valentine, she said she really misses him every moment, not just on Valentine's Day. "But this coming Valentine, kasama ko ang mga anak namin, ang close friends kong sina Amy Austria and Sandy Andolong with their own families, so I won't be lonely sa araw ng mga puso," she adds.
