Before Pia Wurtzbach became Miss Universe came the women who, we can say, started getting the Philippines noticed on the Miss U stage: Venus Raj, Shamcey Supsup, and of course, Janine Tugonon, who was the one who got closest to the crown (she finished first runner-up to Miss USA in 2012) since Miriam Quiambao in 1999. Years after her success on the pageant front, Janine is now starting to carve her niche in the international modeling scene.

Currently based in the US, she has done quite a number of editorials and ads since she moved there, the most notable ones being for Wells Fargo and WalMart... and perhaps the most exciting of all? Her stint on the newest commercial of Victoria's Secret Pink, the iconic fashion brand's line for college women.
Such a cute ad, don't you think? And what great proof of her versatility: From her beauty queen persona, to her high fashion looks, to a bubblier and younger version of herself!
