Margarita Fores shares 1989 photo by Neil Oshima

The granddaughter of J. Amado Araneta gave a peek of her youthful days back in the 90s.

The UN Ambassador for Gastronomy Tourism may look all business-serious nowadays but Chef Margarita Fores definitely led a vivid life.

“The 1989 photo that launched this all was shot by the Neal Oshima, with makeup by the Henri Calayag @henricalayag, with me wearing my Lola Angie Geronimo Forés’ fuchsia pink shantung silk shift dress for Sari-Sari Store, the trailblazing fashion retail brand of the Ricco Ocampo @riccoocampo and the Tina Maristela Ocampo @celestinaocampo. Ahead of their time. Them were the days…it was a good time. Maraming Salamat to the Aleth Ocampo @alethocampo for painting this huge portrait, but for a non-smoker like me who suddenly started smoking cigars but only in the late 1990’s, how could you have foretold the future???!!!” @margaritafores said.

Chef Margarita will always be our It Girl!
