Serrano felt for the young actress when many netizens criticized her look at the recently concluded Star Magic Ball.
In a post in his Facebook account on Sunday, Serrano said this made him decide to contact the former child star and make her his new muse.
“When I saw her fotos at the Star Magic Ball at nabasa ang mga panglalait sa image nya on that event as one of the worst dressed stars, i got hurt, kahit hindi kami magkakilala ng personal and i told myself that sobra namang mamintas ang mga tao…personalan na talaga,” Serrano wrote.
“So what i did the next day, i called my kumareng Gina Marissa Tagasa to ask contact numbers of Kiray Celis at dumating naman sa akin ang kanyang personal #. And i texted her kung pwede ko syang tawagan. Nagkausap kami and i felt her unbelievable voice at sobrang excitement when i told that i needed her for a glamorous fashion shoot in one full day,” he added.
Serrano said he enjoyed the make-over sesssion with Celis, whom he described as a very good listener during the entire photo shoot.
“For Kiray Celis effort naman…super ang concentration nya to elongate her neck and stretching her face forward to show her jawline and i taught her the model’s bite to emphasize her chin and the model’s movement to play with MJ’s lens…and THAT’S IT THE ICONIC PHOTOSHOOT OF THE LADY KIRAY,” he said.
Serrano admires how the young actress used her talent as an actress during the shoot, he said: “She is a very good listener to be able to deliver all the angst of the characters i demanded from her during the shoot! She is an intelligent actress and i am sooo proud that i did her very very first fashion shoot!”
The photos, on the other hand, were shot by MJ Suayan, and were all posted in Serrano’s Facebook account.
