Insta Scoop: Angeli Valenciano Disgusted at the Treatment of Filipino Models​, Including Kiana,​ During LA Fashion Week​ Show​







“This is just going to make us tougher. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” - my daughter Kiana on not being allowed to walk on the LA FASHION WEEK opening show. Former Miss Earth Jamie Herrell and Kiana together with 5 Filipino models (some of who had previously walked on the ramp for Fashion Week) were not being allowed to walk of the ramp for LA FASHION WEEK. “No Filipinos allowed to walk on the ramp!” We want to ask WHY? It was bad enough that you didn’t want to allow the girls but was there a need to publicly humiliate them? And there were only three designers on that 9pm slot. And two were Filipino - Rocky Gathercole and Resty Lagare. Filipino models could not walk for the Filipino designers? Thank you to Jacob Meir of For the Stars Fashion House for standing his ground and fighting for the Filipinos as the five models, Jamie and Kiana were his personal choices. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Thank you to @verygathercole @coutureprince @eliemadi for standing by the Philippine models, Jamie and Kiana. @forthestarsfashionhouse @kianavee @jherrell94 @cherryssalon @victoria_belo @johnlozano10 @rajolaurel @tony33chua @manilagenesis @garyvalenciano @chuckgomez05 @pacificrimvideo @kris_p_pata @kathlynanne @sthanlee @steve_angeles_ @noreen_lanie @petergonzaga salamat. The world is getting darker. We actually ought to just choose to be kind and just. What an experience ! Thank God our daughter lives for far more than just fame and glory. #kianavalenciano #kiana #lafashionweek #spreadlove @erikrosete

“The way you look should be the last thing on your mind when it comes to beauty.” - Kiana my daughter Walking on the ramp at LA FASHION WEEK would probably have been a check on my daughter’s bucket list as many know that she ran away from the call of showbiz for many years to sew and learn fashion design, even taking short courses in London to pursue her passion for fashion as she loved to draw dresses and gowns since she was little. This lady chose a sewing machine over more expensive, material presents as a must-have-gift as a teenager. To rob her of a dream-come-true opportunity was not nice at all. It was actually horrible. #kianavalenciano #kiana #lafashionweek @kianavee @garyvalenciano @paolovalenciano @yosameti @gabvalenciano @forthestarsfashionhouse @verygathercole @eliemadi @coutureprince @rajolaurel @johnlozano10 @erikrosete

  1. Mali not to let them walk. Pero I cannot help think din paano nag qualify si Kianna to walk the ramp? Dahil ba sa connections ng mother at father nya? Obviously there are better models in the Philippines so bakit sya?

    1. Di lang naman pinoy models ang nabubully sa runway. Db nga nung baguhan plng si kendal jenner nabalita na nabubully sya kesho kardashian sya kaya napasok sya sa modeling world. Face it kaylangan super galing mo when it comes to international modeling di pwede na napasama ka lang sa list dhil pwede na.

    2. Actually, in LA, the real minorities are the black people. Napakayabang ng mga Asians in SoCal. Hindi naman talaga model material si Keana, manahi na lang sya.

    3. Si 9:45 may problema sa mga puti. Anong klaseng white privilege ang sinasabi mo? Kung tutuusin, sila nga ang laging nabubully, dahil di sila pwedeng magsalita ng kagaya ng iba, dahil jan sa reason mong white privilege. I’m sure may real reason why they weren’t allowed to walk in that fashion show. Wag kang magsingit ng racial discrimination kung di mo alam ang istorya! Lahat ng race may discrimination! Jan lang sa pinas, malala ang discrimination ng kapwa natin pinoy haaaist!

    4. Last time i checked asians are earning more than the others look at UCLA.

    5. ang palagay ko walang nakikitang discrimination dyan kay Kiana. Ang point is wala naman silang permit as models. Pwede silang manood pero not to work as models. Asan visa nila? tourist?

    6. If there really is racial discrimination e di sana walang Filipino designers jan. Baka naman walang work permit or kulang sa height si ateng kiana.

    7. Anon 1:11, binilly si kendall noon kasi product sya ng nepotism. Sumikat siya at nak book ng mga gigs na mga mas magagaling na models hindi makaka book kasi hindi sila kasing sikat.

      Talent does not always win sa America, please open your eyes. Models and actors are hired based on their social media following. Kendall is one of the worst supermodels to every graced a ramp. Naomi Campbell is not impressed with her.

      This is the reason why she’s not booking as much gigs now because Cindy Crawford’s daughter came out of nowhere and stole her thunder. She is also a product of nepotism. You think these women worked hard as much as those other models that did not have a famous dakily and connections to back them up? No, it takes thrice as hard for them.

      Baka si nanay na to sanay sa Pinas na connections lang kelangan. Obviously her connections are not enough sa States. They are nobodies there, so their privilege is gone.

    4. If it is indeed true that the organizers said that no Filipinos will be allowed to walk on the runway (and announce it at that), then don't you think that's enough to "pull the race card"? They could've chosen to use the term amateurs or even unskilled, but to use the qualifier "Filipino", that is an entirely different scenario. Naabot ba ng comprehension mo? And btw, your reasoning - "LA FW knows how to roll it" which to you means they're never wrong,is so trying hard pa-fashionista. Sorry not sorry din.

    5. Sorry but yes , hard to root for this one , proud and leaning towards fanatic patriot that I'd like to think I am.

    6. I don't think this is true 2:39 its not because they're Filipinos but they don't have a work permit as models in the US. Tourist visa is different from Working Visa. 2:39 wag palaging racism ang peg.

    8. Why were they invited in the first place???

      Delete
    9. 6:35 Perhaps they were invited. They were just not chosen. That is life.

      Delete
    10. 6:35 may sagot na ang produ diyan. They were not invited. Some scammwe (previous organizer) accepted bribe from Kiana and those other Pinay models for them to be included in LAFW. Hindi rin sila pinayagang rumampa dahil below height limit sila.

  4. What was the reason given at bakit di sila inallowed? Need na ng permit para mag join sa fashion show as a model? I’m sure it’s digferent pero di ba tagal pinaglaban ni Cameron Mackintosh si Lea against sa Actors Equity. Different scenario for sure pero di kaya mas gusto nila prioritize yung mga models na May permit to work there. For foreigners/fashion models kasi to work here in the States i think they need to have an H1B or O-1 visa.

  7. Welcome to the modeling world. It's a cutthroat industry. Why does Angeli sound a bit entitled in her post? It doesn't seem like Kiana is an actual model but that she was asked to model, either due to connections or plain old nepotism. She aspires to be a fashion designer but nowhere does Angeli say her daughter is an actual model. And that's probably why they were not allowed to walk. They're not real models who had to go through go-see appointments to convince designers to cast them, but they're "personal choices" meaning they got the job through connections. They basically skipped the line, didn't go through proper casting, and would have taken opportunities from actual models who needed this job. That's likely why they were not allowed to walk the runway.

    6. Pansin ko lan huh not all models are really that tall when we speak of model height standard. Kate Moss is only 5’7 yet she graced the runway. Cara is only 5’7 and a half. Selita Ebanks is 5’8. I think makukuha rin yan sa face, aura, lakad and attitude. Sa pagkakaalam ko 5’8 is even short na for a model height standard. Speaking of this fiasco, mas mabuti siguro if Angeli also spoke about the reasons why those Filipina models were not allowed to strut the runway. Baka may legit reason din. Sa panahon ngayon, masyado ng sensitive ang mga tao. Madaling ma butthurt and mag alburoto.

      Delete
  12. What's the other side of this story? Is it due to disorganization or misunderstanding? Why would they invite those models to walk the runway if they weren't going to be able to? Something doesn't add up. Did the Filipino designers demand for them to still walk the runway despite someone telling them they can't? The designers should've also stood their ground. If they won't let u pick your own models then protest and don't show your collection. Stand with your own!

    4. What!! Former Filipino? Honey, from skin to bone, you’re still Filipino. Its your nationality, you cant change it. You could change your citizenship a 100 times but you will never be “former” Filipino. you made me laugh 😀🤣🤣🤣

    5. hirap sa mga tumalikod sa sariling lahi, mayabang. fyi, obtaining a working permit abroad is far different from purposely turning back from your citizenship by blood plus taking oath of allegiance to another country.

    6. Nationality mo po ay American but your Ethnicity is Filipino pa rin.

    7. Nakakatawa, pag nakakabasa ako ng ganito naalala ko yung mga filipino na US citizens na lowkey naglolook down sa mga FOBs, yung tipong isisingit ng isisingit sa usapan na citizen sila kahit walang konek sa usapan. Minsan intrusive pa na tatanungin ka about your immigration status, just so they could subtly brag that they're US citizens. Always amusing to see that kind of crap though, cause those types of people are always the ones who end up playing themselves, especially pag yung mga FOBs that they used look down upon eventually make it. Pinakaprecious yung mga anak ng FOB eh nagiging successful, tapos napupunta ang pressure dun sa mga anak nilang filam to surpass the FOB kids lololol


      Pero you know what, kung matitira ka talaga sa ibang bansa eh makakarelate ka din kay orig commemter, minsan may mga panahon talaga that you'll hate being a filipino , dahil pag wala ka na sa bansa sasampalin ka talaga ng katotohanan kung gaano ka ka under privileged dahil lang pinanganak kang pinoy. Kung ang mga pinoy na nasa relatively maayos na bansa like US feel this way, di ko maimagine kung ano ang nararamdaman ng mga pinoy sa middle east, etc. Minsan naiisip ko na coping mechanism nalang ng mga pinoy ang magyabang. Pag nangibang bansa ka, walang maipapabaon sayo ang pilipinas kundi yung values na magsipag ka, gawin ng maayos ang trabaho, at ngumiti ka parin kahit hirap ka na. Some people may say that is enough, but you don't normally hear of, let's say, americans, na ineexploit sa trabaho pag nangibang bansa sila. Pero ang pinoy, mapa blue collar o white collar, usually have to endure more crap and work twice as hard.

    8. 12:52 You expect too much from your host country. Of course you have to work twice as hard. But doing so and proving yourself gains some respect from them. That is the reality of life in a foreign country much less the greatest one on earth. Don't force yourself on them. They will grow on you eventually. They can smell fear.

  36. I’m a US citizen too. Di naman ganon kadali maging US citizen hano. Di naman pwede mag apply ng ganon-ganon na lang esp kung tourist sila. Geez! Eh di sana lahat ng illegale naging citizen na if it’s that easy.

    1. true, and pano sila makaka work nga as models kung hindi sila citizen. I don't think nilalait ang lahi nila pero naman di ba obvious na waley work para sa mga hindi citizen. Kumbaga ano yun TNT sila???? kala naman ng designer basa oy baks gusto mo rumampa? gow na. ganern??? parang class presentation lang.

    2. True 1:56 and 2:49. US citizen here and agree with both of you.

    3. Korek! Mahirap mag-apply para maging citizen sa US. Ako nga 5 months na wala pa rin notice for my biometrics eh green card holder na ko pero ang tagal pa rin ng processo para maging citizen

      Delete
    4. Green card process ko 7 years. Citizenship process ko 5 years. It's one of the hardest things.

      Delete
    5. 12:00, bakit ang tagal? It doesn't take that long to get a green card and citizenship takes about a year or less to process just as long you've been here for at least 5 years.

      Delete
    6. That's right. Mine, I got my green card less than a year lng din 3 years for my citizenship. But case to case basis lng yan

      Delete
    7. Anon 5:25 that’s case to case basis. Getting a green card or citizenship is different for each applicant, merong maswerte merong namumuti ang mata sa kahihintay. Family based is fast while employment based application moves like a turtle. Basa basa rin day pag may time.

    1. Paano mapipiling rumampa si Kiana eh wala naman siyang X factor sa modelling. LA fashion week iyan natural yung mga dekalibreang fshion model ang kukunin nila para rumampa.

  41. Kung working permit issue, eh posibleng may racial undertones din siya, kasi pinoy lang ang tinanggal. That kinda implies na pag pinoy, more likely na undocumented lol. How did they even determine na walang papers yung mga pinoy just by looking at them. Yung Jamie din, filam na pinanganak sa california, tapos yung ibang models as per the post eh rumampa na sa fashion week before (assuming na sa US din yun). Oh well.

  42. baka bitter lang si mama para kay daughter. there could be other reasons why they were not permitted to participate.

  43. Siguro sila pinili nung Filipino designer para mag rampa nung design nya, kaso yung organizers iba ang plan dun sa design ng Filipino. At dahil di natipuhan yung look at body nila di pumayag ang organizer na rumampa sila dahil panira lang. Ganun lang yun di pang model ang katawan nilang mga pinay dun kaya di napili.

  44. Napaka feeling entitled naman ng mga valenciano! Unang una model material ba naman anak nya??? Anu ba height ng anak nya? O ng mga pilipinang magmomodel??? Dios mio malamang nasa ibang bansa kayo natural iba ang taste at standarda nila kesa dito sa pinas na porke anak ng artista eh
