As she celebrates another milestone in her life, ABS-CBN President Charo Santos-Concio, one of the most influential women in the media today, graced the cover of Metro magazine’s November Icon issue.
The 60-year-old media giant was placed alongside the “stars who will uphold her legacy” namely Anne Curtis, Bea Alonzo, Charlene Gonzales, Dawn Zulueta and Judy Ann Santos.
Apart from recalling her humble beginnings in the business, Ma’am Charo, as she’s fondly called at ABS-CBN, was celebrated by the aforementioned actresses.
You’re My Home star Dawn noted how elegant Charo is. “She is always elegant, someone who is beautifully turned out. In almost everything that she wears, in everything that she does, she is always so graceful. And I think that grace and elegance stem from her beautiful personality,” Dawn said.
A Second Chance star Bea meanwhile pointed out that Charo is a good person in front and behind the camera. “She’s very elegant, she’s very classy. I really look up to her. How you see her doesn’t go far from how she is as a person. She’s very soft spoken, very kind, and I like how she carries herself,” said Bea.
Soon-to-be-mom again Juday noted how Charo’s aura stands out from the rest, saying that “You see that overflowing confidence whenever she walks down the hallway. Her best accessory is her smile. She’s always the woman of the hour because of how she carries herself.”
Aga Muhlach’s wife Charlene for her part singled out how she’s generally adored by many because “She’s a beautiful woman, not just physically beautiful, but a beautiful person as well. I think I share the same sentiment as everyone that there’s general admiration for her. She’s just a fascinating woman and a big part of the industry.”
Lastly, It’s Showtime host Anne, who is a fashionista herself, opted to underscore Charo’s enviable fashion sense.
“Her style is of class and elegance. She’s always well put-together in her outfits may it be an evening gown, when she’s speaking to us, or when it comes to a formal event.”
