Why Anne Curtis is the 'national sweetheart'
MANILA, Philippines - She is beautiful. She is fashionable. She doesn't sing well.
And Anne Curtis knows it.
But does it stop her from singing her heart out? Nope. In fact, she sings even more and skips while doing so.
This is why fans love Anne: she keeps it real, she makes fun of herself and she's not afraid of not looking good (like she can help it).
On Philippine Fashion Week Summer 2013 day 5 last Saturday, October 27, retail brand Bench launched Anne Curtis as the face behind 3 of their new scents: Sweetheart, Fierce and Glamorous — all descriptions of the actress-non-singer who is dubbed "national sweetheart."
Also launched were 3 body sprays with Anne's name: Amour Babykisses, Amour Carnival Cocktail and Amour Cuppycake.
Unlike the Human fashion show two hours before, Bench's show featured Anne is several song numbers and — you guessed it — the crowd was clapping, singing AND laughing the whole time.
Rob Kardashian and Kylie Jenner who had walked in the Human show were in the audience to see Anne sing.
I cannot forget Anne's line towards the end of the show: "I hope you brought your umbrellas!" (In the Philippines, it is a superstition that if a person who does not sing well sings, there will be rain.)
Here are my tweets from the show:
