Local ‘it girl’ Georgina Wilson believes she’s happier to being herself despite being described as the Filipino counterpart of Gossip Girl’s main character Leighton Meester.
“I think she (Leighton) is very pretty but I think the best thing to do is to be happy about your self, so I’m happy and good just the Georgina Wilson of the Philippines,” Filipino-British Model and VJ said in a meet and greet for Garnier in Robinson’s Ermita.
Apparently, Georgina related she used to watch the American hit series Gossip Girl frequently where Meester plays Blair Waldorf, the insecure queen B of Manhattan’s social scene. Meester is in the country to be the fashion ambassador for local clothing brand, Penshoppe.
Beauty and Success
When asked how she remains beautiful and fit amid busy schedules she said: “Besides taking care of your skin, you need to sleep enough, sometimes when you’re stress, kumakain ka ng bad food diba? And just try not to sweat the small stuff, wag kang mastress ng madali.”
In fact she shared that she has enough appetite for pizza and rice but makes sure she goes to gym afterwards, “I eat a lot but I try myself to stop eating because sometimes when I get full, I just want to sleep.”
Although Georgina is acknowledged as one of the most beautiful icon in the fashion industry, she admitted having insecurities and even experienced being chubby when she was younger.
“It’s only normal to have those insecurities; it’s how you handle those moments. I do go through days when I feel really, really ugly. Life has its ups and downs, For me, for example Jennifer Lopez is perfect and never feels ugly or anything , but when I hear her say stuff like ‘it’s not always like this’ or ‘it’s just an image.’ I feel like I can relate with her more because it’s so true. It’s not like just because people perceive you to be beautiful, it does not mean that you didn’t go through any insecurities in your life.” she said.
“If you really feel good about yourself and you look good, then it really has repercussions on your success and on your general motivation,” she disclosed.
