PHOTOS | KC Concepcion as Tanduay 2013 calendar girl


When KC Concepcion posed in a swimsuit for a billboard of Bayo in 2008, it created a stir among showbiz folk. And then after her breakup with Piolo Pascual in January, she sent shock waves across the country with the February 2012 cover of Rogue Magazine.

Now, the first daughter of megastar Sharon Cuneta brings her sexy back as the 2013 Calendar Girl for Tanduay Distillers.

In a posh launch at the Skye on W at Bonifacio High Street, KC was welcomed with so much warmth by the guests who graced the occasion.

After her sexy dance number with the G-Force guys, the press admitted to her that it was a bit of a shock to see KC’s newest pictorials.

“This is really quite new for me. But for 12 years I’ve been endorsing, I feel this is the best time to do this na. It’s worth the wait. And I am endorsing a product na since the 1800s pa eh, nandito na, hindi lang in our country but all over the world,” KC said.

At 27, KC is no longer afraid to be typecast in sexier, more sensual, and daring roles.

“No more na. And I think, there’s nothing to be afraid of. Mas maganda tingnan ang babaeng may sense of openness when it comes to these things. I think, simula nang ipanganak naman ako, until the time I went abroad to study and live there, hanggang bumalik na ako here, sanay na ang mga fans with what they’ve seen in me,” she said.


KC gave her full trust to the creative team for the calendar shoot — photographer Marc Nicdao, hairstylist Celeste Tuviera and stylist Pam Quiñones.

“We were allowed to have our own creative freedom for the different poses I did. Ayaw ko rin namang gumawa ng something where I won’t be comfortable. Gusto ko, maging masaya ang fans, lalo na ang pamilya ko when they see this,” she revealed.
