“I believe hindi kailangan magbuyangyang ng skin para maging sexy. Being sexy is an attitude (and skill na din).”
Paris, 24, Quezon City
“Sexy is confidence.
That’s when you embrace who you really are and you let go of your inhibitions.That’s when you don’t care of what people think about you and just being yourself.You aren’t bothered of how short you are, how big you are, how imperfect you are.When you carry yourself head up high, that’s just sexy!”
Jetti, 28, Quezon City
“Sexiness – 40% wit; 30% confidence; 20% humor, and; 10% je ne sais quoi.”
Coco, 24, Quezon City
“I define being sexy not only as having a perfectly-chiselled figure. For me, it could also be a bass-toned voice for men, eyes that catch and a personality that delivers a strong appeal.”
Angelica, 24, Laguna
“Being sexy is not about having the hottest body but having the confidence to show all of them that you have the best personality.”
“Being sexy is being comfortable with what and who you are. It is that natural spunk, that fresh appeal, and pride that you exude with your body (with or without clothes), and your face (with or without make-up), and your personality. Simply, being sexy is being comfortable with yourself.”
At sila na nga ang ating Top 6 Finalists!!! Ang bongga ng SEXIEST PHOTO round!!!! Iboto na ang favorite finalists n’yo para makapasok sila sa Top 5! GRABE! Malapit na tayo sa Grand Finale! Abangan n’yo ang nakakalokang pasabog sa YTMNTM! Kapit lang kayo!

Direk Mayk Juat Breaks His Silence
NAKAKALOKA! Ito na ang maanghang at pasabog na critique mula sa ating Celebrity Judge na si Direk Mayk! BASAHIN n’yo, especially ng mga models. Sinadya kong ilagay dito as part of my post kasi may mga pasabog photos siyang sinama na hindi pwede ilagay sa comment box.
So, huwag na nating patagalin! Ito na si Direk Mayk! KAPIT! 🙂
Medyo underwhelming yung batch of photos na ito. Dapat nga ito yung exciting part. Parang pictorial to para sa calendar ng CBCP’s sexiest. Na-miss out yung S-E-X-Y.
General comments & suggestions for improvement, research first on what are sexy photos, look at high end magazines on how models pose, Google up famous models in sexy poses. RESEARCH, RESEARCH REASEARCH!
Hindi din naman pwede kung ano yung meaning sa niyo ng sexy, yun na ang susubmit na picture. Kung hindi, kahit ano nalang pwede submit, at yun na nga ang nangyari. Get the general definition & look of sexy then tweak it and make it your own, kung gusto niyo maiba. Hindi naman to Ms. Universe na very wholesome dapat ang sagot at mananalo ka sa question and answer portion. Modeling contest ito, the point is who can transform themselves in that single shot.
Embrace the theme.
Flip – Ang mukha mo ay parang ikaw ang nakakita ng sexy, hindi ikaw yung sexy. Sabi mo na “I believe hindi kailangan magbuyangyang ng skin para maging sexy” While that is true, when a person look at your picture dapat meron kakaiba, may “sex appeal” or kahit kilig/libog/puso pag tinitignan yung picture.
Kung hindi ka comfortable magtanggal ng damit at the least sana form fitting siya or kahit basain mo yung damit, and focus nalang on the face. Then remove the shades, the eyes says so much about sexiness, kahit close up lang ng mukha and a good sincere look of sexiness towards the camera will do, kailangan mo landiin mo ang camera na hindi nagiging malaswa tignan. Wag na mashadong magpa-demure, kulang pa sa confidence. If you are confident that your sexy, better show it through your eyes & your expression.
Paris – Malaking problema dito yung photography feeling ko mali yung place/lighting and angling ng camera, but since modeling contest to, ang pose mo ang cri-critique ko.
Ang unang impression ko sa photo parang nananakot ka, at kung makita kita, at pababa ako ng hagdan, matatakot ako. Bakit? Parang meron kang hinihintay at nakatitig sa kawalan, madilim at luma pa yung building.
Kailangan din tandaan na sexy shoot ito, kailangan landiin ang camera. You are trying to attract the person looking at your picture. The eyes are very powerful in a sexy shot, look at the camera and let your eyes tell the story that you want to be the center of attention.
I see you want to highlight your legs, and I feel na ito yung gusto mo ipakita na sexiest part of you. Good, medyo lumabas yun. Next you need to find the perfect angle where you want to showcase your legs Do not be afraid to extend them, bend them, contort them, show us length, show us curves. Sexy pic ito, hindi Halloween.
Meron ka ng attitude, fierce I can see it in your face, I suggest is learn to connect with the camera, and use the location to your advantage. By using the stairs can help elongate your legs, and the angles/lines of your surroundings can help our eyes direct to where you want us to focus. Think Sexy. Be Sexy. Ikaw na nag sabi… “let go of your inhibitions.”
Jetti – I appreciate the effort of the picture, but once again this feels it missed out the “sexy” theme. It looks more like a high fashion shoot then a sexy shoot. You say being sexy is 40% – wit. I don’t see the wit in the photo. Make sure what you say in translated in every photograph you model for, hindi lang siya lip service.
Here are my suggestions for improvement, First, the face. Models usually have this spaced out / deadpan / default mode look. If you want to be a great model, you got to stand out with your definition of sexy, which is wit, confidence, humor, and the indescribable, it factor (personality + passion), then translate it in your expressions. As I’ve said with the other contestants, landiin mo yung camera. Not just stare into it.
Second, sexiness is all about the person, and the aura that they exude. You fill just 15% of the photograph, too much ambiance and props, never nagiging sexy ang halaman at payong unless ginawa mong clothing. Try cropping the picture with from your face until below your chest, it would look much sexier, and remove the necklace, too big, a bit distraction. This would make a huge difference. Highlight your assets.
Although I like the styling that you pulled back your hair, I like seeing the face of the model, especially in sexy shots at hindi naman palagi mukhang bagong gising. Your face has the angle that makes you photogenic; you are much in control of your body. Take advantage of it.
Coco – Ay Coco, let your picture tell the story, hindi na kailangan may text sa photograph to tell kung ano yung story kung bakit ka naging sexy. At di ko din gets yung the man behind chained letters? Eh di maasar na sayo mga tao nun, ikaw pala nag floflood ng Facebook ng kung ano-ano chain letters, share this, share that. Pano naging sexy yun? Ingat lang sa photo editing at pagdadagdag ng quotes. The simpler the better, no need to explain.
I am trying to understand the story in your photograph. Ito yung dating sa akin, you got home from work and slowly undressing for your special someone. You got to titillate your audience with your sexiness, go unbutton like one or two more buttons sa polo, excite your viewers for the next stage, lagyan mo ng libog. Hold with your one hand yung polo slightly open, not necessarily showing too much skin, just enough to keep us interested and excited. It’s too safe, parang nasa 1960’s pa yung era natin. Demure-demure. Understand what is the story you are trying to say, then picture yourself telling that sexy story in a single frame.
Ito nanaman yun “dead pan face” eh. Try to give a slight grin, or a naughty smile. To give sort of a personality to help warm up the picture a little bit. It would make a big difference. This is a sexy pictorial, and if you don’t have the angles of the face or the chiseled body, bumawi sa personality and aura.
Angelica – This comes out to me as a teeny bopper, pretty-cutesy patoosie feel, and we want to move this to cutesy feel to sexiness, a more mature look. Kung baga nasa candy magazine ka, yung hinahanap ay FHM. First remove the shades or pwede din just slightly tilt it up na parang sumisilip ka to a guy you are checking out. Lessen naman the smile, to give a sexy feel, you want to have that sense of mystery.
The pose makes you very wide, try to tilt your body to a more angular shape so that you can highlight your curves. I would suggest to crop the picture from your head to just above your dress and use the tan lines to your advantage, let the guys imaginations roll. It felt too conservative for me for a sexy shoot. Seduce the camera.
Jeff – Ikaw lang yung contestant that embraced the theme of sexy. I get the story, parang the morning after yung dating. Even the photography, location and photo editing is good! You have the proper stare and just the right smile to keep your audience wanting to see more. There is the mystery and confidence of sexiness. You have the look, and the only one who understood the theme, congratulations.
Minor critique nalang. I feel na your trying to flex to highlight your body assets, this makes it look unnaturally tense. Siguro pump up before the shoot, and then relax during the shoot so that you don’t flex during the shoot. Just be careful with the sexy shots, there is a thin line between sexy, na lumalabas sa tabloids and sexy that is classy na sa high end magazines.
Of course you want to go with the one with the classy look, para hindi mukhang cheap. And you can only achieve that with much practice and educating yourself on how to pose and being comfortable with your self. (Hindi naman ibig sabihin na comfortable ka sa katawan kahit ano pwede mo na ipakita). Look at great photographs of high-end models then imitate them until you can make them your own. For me, Men’s Health and GQ got the proper classy sexiness to it.
With proper styling, lighting and photographer, you got down the look, congratulations.
