There's something really icky going on in the fashion scene in Manila. Granted that we do see women who are more adventurous with their look, and more open to fresh ideas, there still seems to be a tendency to dress up in an overtly sexy way. In general, young girls adorn themselves in ways that show a lot of skin or showcase the body in a tacky way. I mean, just look at magazine covers and you'll understand what I'm talking about. I've always viewed sexy as merely being suggestive about it, there's no reason that you can't be covered up AND still sexy. When we just bare our bodies, that screams SEX, and not sensuality. There has to be a distinction for that.

I've always thought of Italian women as beautiful and sexy in an earthy, self-assured kind of way. They take care of their bodies by eating healthy, and keeping fit, but all of these are just the tip of the iceberg. They exude an aura of.."I-know-something-that-you don't." And THAT is damn sexy. I wish women in Manila can OWN their sensuality, instead of allowing themselves to be used as wind-up sex dolls.
