Jing Monis Recounts Incident with Brazilian Model, Gabriela Barros

Renowned hairstylist Jing Monis contacted Fashion PULIS to give an account of the incident that led to his online outburst at Brazilian model Gabriela Barros. Accordingly, Monis was disrespected by the rude attitude of the model.

In a bridal fashion show in a hotel down south, Monis was the official sponsor for hair and makeup. Throughout the afternoon, Monis and his crew made sure every model was prepped up. However, the task was not easy, as the models kept standing up and moving around, which made the makeup time longer. It seems that the foreign models hired for the show felt they could do whatever they wish simply because the staff comprised Filipinos. This delay added to the tense atmosphere.

After the models ate dinner and the show was about to start, Monis made a last minute check of the hair and makeup of the models. After all, the name and reputation of Monis was at stake, and thus, he had to make sure everyone was perfect. Then, when Monis saw the disheveled hair of Barros, he was aghast, as brides are supposed to have a neat and well-styled hair.

Monis approached Barros and asked if she were modeling. If Barros were not going on stage, then Monis would not have been concerned with her looks. Instead of responding to Monis, Barros allegedly ignored the hairstylist and continued to converse and laugh with her fellow model in Portuguese. Keeping his composure, Monis repeated his question, but Barros continued to ignore him, which angered Monis. Monis then called the attention of Barros and told her that she does not even have a work permit, and he walked away.

Later, Barros together with her agent, Gibby Arca, went to Monis. Instead of a positive outcome, Barros allegedly pointed at Monis and started her jab, claiming that she has been modeling for five years. Arca then mediated and tried to pacify the parties. Arca apologized to Monis for the attitude of Barros.

Given his more than 25 years of experience as stylist for various fashion shows and celebrities, Monis has never encountered anyone with the attitude of Barros. The issue between Monis and Barros puts to light the number of foreign models being hired for local shows. The problem is that some of the foreign models do not have a work permit, and the fashion industry remains blind at this situation. Moreover, these models might not even be paying the proper taxes. In any industry, while looks or beauty might be important, attitude and behavior are essential factors that create goodwill and respect.

Note: Fashion PULIS welcomes the side of Gabriela Barros and Gibby Arca.

  1. Tama. Hindi ako kayamanan mga classmates, pero kapag gusto ko serbisyo ni Monis nagbabayad ako. So tama lang na itong mga walang permit at nararapat na tax.. Eh alam mo na.. At huwag na mag attitude..

    4. Mga foreigner na wala sa lugar. Huwag nila alipustahin ang mga lahing nagpapakain sa kanila. Kasuhan at i-ban na ang mga yan.

    5. Na curious ako kung paano yung approach ni Jing when he asked if she was modelling. Kung condescending si Jing at nagfe feeling mayora, baka kahit ako di ko siya pinansin.

    6. Those Brazilian models are here because they are super poor and not even considered beautiful in Brazil.

    7. Problema kasi sa bansang to inuuna pa mga foreigners bigyan ng raket kaysa sa mga pinoy/pinay na kung tutuusin marami namang magaganda at gwapo. Tulad ng isang mall na nagmamaganda feeling bigh fashion masyado, foreigners lagi ang models. Nasa pilipinas naman. Yun pala mga wala namang permit. Kaloka

  4. E kasalanan din ng clients yan bakit nila hinahire kung walang working permit. Di mo sila masisisi nga na mas tangkilikin yung mga foreigners dahil masmaganda hamak at matatangkad pero dapat may permit.

    1. 2:36, yan na ba ang definition mo ng maganda? Without the make-up napaka plain ng hitsura niya. Mas madaming magandang Pinay kaysa kanya, di lang talaga nadidiscover.

  5. Mas maganda sana kung kapwa pinoy lahat ng models, mas nabbigyan p ng break ung mga banyaga, at nagmamataas p,. Mga ganyan umasta eh ibalik n s pinanggalingan nila. Pasalamat sya my trabaho sya dito s Pinas.

    1. true, itong mga Brazilian models nagkalat sa Makati ka kumpitensya ng mga Filipina models. Patalsikin nyo na mga ito. Nakakainsulto sa ganda ng Pinay ang mga ito.

    2. Tama! Tangkilikin ang sariling atin.

    3. Gusto man nila iprioritize ang mga pinay, ang gusto ng mga clients e foreigners. So paano sila kikita aber? Business yan noh, ganyan talaga sistema

      Delete
    4. no, clients prefered these beauties dahil yan ang gustong makita ng publiko, we should learn from this at tangkilikin ang sariling atin para mabago ang lumang sistema. Pag maganda, dapat half or foreigner, hindi ba pwedeng mga pinay naman

    5. Is the market go ask for that... Not the agencies... And the agencies are so corrupt! They charge taxes of the models and even more...

  7. Not taking anyone's side since I wasn't there, but this is just one side of the story. Therefore I am neutral on this issue. This isn't really about models working without the proper permits, but rather, this is about the behavior of people working behind the scenes of the fashion show. No big deal, because attitudes run wild in the fashion industry.

  9. No permit no work dapat. Kung kinuha pa din kahit walang work permit, pagmultahin ng malaki ung kumuha para madala.

  10. If it's true na nasa pinas ang mga balahurang porengers na yan at nagmo-mowdel ng walang work permit dapat ipa-deport na ang mga yan dahil mga pinoy ang nawawalan ng trabaho!

    1. As far as I know, DOLE ang in-charge sa employment permit so dapat sila ang i-notify. At sana nga madeport para magserve as example to other foreigners who are working in the Philippines without employment permit.

    2. to the clients, kindly stop hiring these models! they are crass and ill mannered. Mga Pilipino na lang Please. Bumilib sa sariling lahi

    3. If special work permit, yung tipong 3-6 months pwede sa BOI but pag long term siguro sa DOLE.
      May fault din ang agency na nagdala sa kanya dito para magwork; dapat pati sila i-penalize.

    1. Agree! We don't need them to be honest. They should go back to Brazil where they have nothing to eat. So annoying when they come here acting superior and feeling mayaman and look down on poor filipinos as if to the manor born sila eh isang kahig isang tuka din naman sila sa Brazil.

    2. Nakakaumay ang mukha ng mga brazilians to be honest. They're sooooooo overrated!

    3. Anong maraming magagandang pinay ka dyn, Watch ka ng Manila Fashion Fest teh. Ang magaganda, matangkad at petite ay yung mixed or foreigners. Yung mga pinay either pinabayaan yung katawan, malaki ang puson at mukhang paa. Di ko masisisi naghihire ng mga foreigners lalo na for Catalogues

    4. 11:58 teh wag natin babastusin ang mga Filipino models.

    5. Ahhh go generalize in hell!!!

  15. Half filipinas like Sirene Sutton, Maureen Wroblewitz and Coralleen Waddell and even pure filipina models like Alaiza Malinao are more gorgeous and better models than those overrated brazilian trash.

  22. pwede din namang nagkamali yung si Jing dito kasi hindi naman natin nakita. Pero nevertheless, this should be a wake up call to the fashion industry and big corporate clients. Kindly hire Filipino models. Mas damihan nyo ang mga Pinoy sa fashion show ninyo hindi yung Brazilian dominated. Nasa Pilipinas po tayo parepareho wala tayo sa Brazil Fashion Week.Yun lang po
