Charo Ronquillo (born April 22, 1988 in Cabuyao City, Laguna, Philippines) is a Filipino fashion model.[1] She was described by Bill Ford as, "that unique look from the Philippines".[2]

Early life[edit]

Ronquillo was discovered playing basketball at an arcade at a mall in the Philippines by a local designer Kenneth Chua. Before entering high school she ticked off, “short hair, ugly teeth, tomboyish and always picking a fight,” as her main traits. Only when she started paying attention to her looks did modeling become an interest.[1]

At 17 years old, Ronquillo joined and won the Ford Supermodel of the World Philippines 2005 Search. She went on to represent the Philippines at the Supermodel World Finals 2006 in New York City and placed 3rd with a $100,000 contract with Ford Models.[2]

Modeling career[edit]

Since her win, Ronquillo appeared on the catwalks of New York Fashion Week, modeling for labels and designers including Lacoste, Lela Rose, Nanette Lapore, Zero Maria Cornejo, Tory Burch, Antonio Berardi, Kenneth Cole, Mac Cosmetics Barbie Collection, Zaldy by Gwen Stefani, BCBG, Sisley and Benetton New York fashion Week F/W 2009-2010 for Elie Tahari and Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture FW 2011-2012 for Julien Fournié and Eric Tibusch. She was one of Chloe Dao's models on the finale of Project Runway season 2. She also appeared on numerous fashion and beauty editorials for Spanish Vogue, Indian Vogue, Teen Vogue, Marie Claire Paris and US, ELLE Vietnam, Cosmopolitan US and Glamour. She has appeared in advertisements for Old Navy, Macy's, and Sak's Fifth Avenue.[2]
