Filipino women have since begun making waves in and around the globe. From the many shoes of Imelda Marcos to the beauty titles of Gloria Diaz and Margie Moran-Floirendo to Josie Natori’s designer dresses, Filipino women of all shapes, ages and shoe sizes have attracted solely a legion of followers that include even the most famous, the most brilliant and the richest societies. Not to mention those who have penetrated the Hollywood scene such as Lea Salonga, Tia Carrere, Phoebe Cates and many others.
