Anne Curtis has gone a long way from her teenybopper days back when she entered show business in 1997. Over the years, she has transformed from being a fresh-faced ingénue into one of the most influential celebrities in the local entertainment scene.
When PEP.ph asked if her continuous reinvention was something she had planned, she said that the evolution of her image was a natural process.
“There’s not really a conscious effort but I think as you age, it just comes naturally and I’m happy that all my fans and followers, they accept whatever change I make, or how I aged, throughout the show business,” she was quoted as saying. “And you know it’s never been a perfect Anne, it’s never a perfect metamorphosis of changing and making mistakes.

Sneakers and denim enthusiasts may appreciate this exciting release. For spring-summer 2013, Denham, the Dutch jeansmaker teams up with the Italian from Buttero and 14oz store in Berlin to create a limited version of their Tanino sneaker. For the occasion the model is dressed up with 14 oz ring spun selvedge denim woven in Italy and put on high quality stitched rubber soles, still from Italy.
