The Philippines’ very own top model Kelsey Merritt is adding another feather in her cap. The 24-year-old style icon is the new face of Italian luxury brand Bulgari for its fragrance collection. She shared some teaser photos from her shoot on her Instagram stories. In fact, she even asked her followers to guess what her latest endorsement is.
She posted an Instagram post on Tuesday. The Filipino-American model shared the news with a photo of herself smiling from ear to ear. In the second photo of the said post, on the other hand, she displayed more than that. She showed a bottle of the latest perfume under Bulgaria Allegra line, Dolce Estasi. This included some desserts in the background.
According to their website, the scent comes as a celebration of sweetness and of the Italian family cocoon.
“Jacques Cavallier. A soothing powdery floral that transports you to an Italian pasticcerria. It recalls youthful memories of enjoying delectable Italian pastries.”
Moreover, Kelsey looks magnificent in her fringed dress in the frame.
“So happy to announce I’m the new face of @bulgariparfums!! Can’t wait for you guys to see what we shot today,” she wrote.
In the comments, friends, fans, and other celebrities had been posting their congratulatory messages.
In 2018, Kelsey made history as the first Filipino to walk Victoria’s Secret runway. She said walking that specific runway remained one of her longtime dreams. Last November 2020, Kelsey became included for the second time in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. This also featured supermodels like Gigi Hadid and Tyra Banks back in the day.
