Fashion Photo Shoot with Miss Singapore 2009 Pilar Arlando

History

Pilar was raised in Singapore, but has always had questions about her unique heritage. Her father is of Chinese-Indian descent while her mother is of Portuguese-Indo-Chinese-Dutch descent. Arlando speaks 4 languages, English, Malay, Mandarin (Basic) and Portuguese (Kristang). At the moment, she is also taking up French. She is currently majoring in her Travel, Tourism and Hospitality Management Diploma at the Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS).

Miss World Singapore 2009
During the Miss World Singapore pageant, She earned the 2nd Runner Up 2009/10 title; however, due to the furor that arose (credit fraud scandal, bipolar disorder and the infamous mocking of her English language skills by some citizens of Singapore) about the current title holder at that time, Ris Low, she eventually took over her Low’s reign as Miss World Singapore 2009/10. Arlando had also attained a few subsidiary awards during her Miss World Singapore pageant in 2009. Her other titles include: Miss World University Singapore 2009, Miss Personality 2009, Miss Abry 2009, Miss Vitality 2nd Runner Up 2009.

She went on to represent Singapore at the Miss World 2009 Pageant, held in Johannesburg, South Africa on 12 December 2009. She represented her nation as one of the top 12 for the Sports Fast Track Event.

The Photo Shoot
This series was shot last month of January 2011. A friend organized a shoot called “The Rainbow Lady” hence the rainbow face paint and colorful petal like skirt on Pilar. She is very patient despite of the hot weather. We started 9am until 1pm. The sun is scorching hot but we did manage well. Special thanks to stylist Calay of Xilver Claire and the makeup artist Jacky Agabon for the awesome costume they made. Hope you enjoy the photos. Cheers!!! – Kris

    • Hi Fabiola,

      I use a Nikon D700 body . For the lenses I use most of the time 24-70mm, 70-200mm and 50mm f1.4G. For some cases I use 16-35mm F4 and 105mm f2.8. For my post processing I use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop CS5.

      Best regards,
      Kris
