Elvira An­gara PHILIP­PINES


Indonesia Tatler - - Style -

Known simply as “Tootsy,” Elvira An­gara has been daz­zling Philip­pine so­ci­ety for quite some time. She’s al­ways one of the best-dressed women at any high-pro­file event, of­ten show­cas­ing beau­ti­fully el­e­gant out­fits from lo­cal de­sign­ers, who she fer­vently sup­ports.

“Style is an ex­ten­sion of one’s personality and taste,” she says. “Filipino is how I would de­scribe mine.”

Mar­ried to Sen­a­tor Sonny An­gara, with whom she has three chil­dren, Tootsy han­dles the en­ter­tain­ment, sport and ca­ble sales for the ABS- CBN tele­vi­sion net­work, jug­gling a brilliant ex­ec­u­tive ca­reer with the de­mands of be­ing a politi­cian’s wife. She does so with re­mark­able ease and a con­stant air of so­phis­ti­ca­tion—al­ways pair­ing her stun­ning cou­ture gowns and im­pec­ca­ble ac­ces­sories with a cour­te­ous smile. Her poise, fig­ure and beauty, and her gra­cious, gen­er­ous de­meanour never fail to en­chant.

“I have al­ways be­lieved that style is more than just about what you wear,” says Philip­pine Tatler ed­i­torin-chief An­ton San Diego. “It’s an in­nate qual­ity that seeps through your ev­ery­day life—from the way you walk, talk, look, and even how you treat peo­ple. Tootsy is stylish, no doubt, and looks good in any­thing, but she’s also a woman who’s beau­ti­ful in­side. She pos­sesses that added flair that goes be­yond ap­pear­ance.”
