Newcomer Charlene Almarez was born in the Phillipines in 1994. She was a runner up in a Ford Competition and soon after signed with Ford. She has already walked for DVF, Lacoste and Peter Som. She made her editorial debut in V magazine photographed by Richard Burbridge. She has a very fresh look and she looks like she can easily be transformed to fit any character. I'm interested in seeing if she can take off. So far, I'm convinced.
