ZsA zSa PAdiLLA

Esquire (Philippines) - - THE WOMAN WE LOVE -

A true icon,

Zsa Zsa Padilla’s con­tri­bu­tion to the lo­cal en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try is un­de­ni­able. In a room, her very pres­ence com­mands ev­ery­one’s at­ten­tion even when she doesn’t ut­ter a word. She doesn’t have to. Her au­thor­i­ta­tive de­meanor and unim­posed re­gal­ity will do all the talk­ing for her. At first glance, it is a bit in­tim­i­dat­ing; in front of the cam­era, she is so in charge. But slowly, when the min­utes pass, her warmth be­gins to ra­di­ate. And out comes the mother, the lov­ing wife, the many roles she held in her life.

Any­one who grew up with Zsa Zsa’s mu­sic will vouch that her an­thems re­flected the story of their lives. But this Divine Diva proved that beyond her mu­sic, she was a hell of an ac­tress, too— prov­ing her met­tle in both com­edy and drama films, and tak­ing home awards for some of th­ese roles as well.

To­day, she con­tin­ues to prove that a paragon like her never loses its twin­kle— hard­work­ing, she car­ries her name with pride, main­tain­ing the in­tegrity of the ca­reer she has built and main­tained for decades. And from what it looks like, there’s no stop­ping this su­per­star. —KO STYLING MEG MAN­ZANO STYLING AS­SIS­TANTS CARLA DE­LOS
