It’s pretty safe to say that Filipino designer Michael Cinco has made a name for himself internationally—from seeing his designs worn on Hollywood red carpets to showcasing at Paris Couture Week. But he also admits that he still gets shy when it comes to meeting his Hollywood muses.
In an interview with Inquirer, Michael reveals that he hasn’t met any of his Hollywood clients which include Jennifer Lopez, Mila Kunis, Kylie Minogue, and Channing Tatum.
“To be honest, I never met any of them. I dressed up some of the most beautiful Filipino celebrities and Hollywood celebrities wore my clothes on the red carpet and in their music videos,” he says. “When the producers of the movie Jupiter Ascending asked me to go to London to meet Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum, I declined because I was too shy to meet them. The stylist of Jennifer Lopez asked me to meet her backstage. Also, the manager of Kylie Minogue asked me to go to her room for fitting but I just sent my assistant because I was scared and shy.”
Who knew someone as world-renowned as Michael would be shy around celebrities? Well, we hope he can conquer this so he can walk with them side-by-side on the red carpet in the future.
