QUEEN of All Media Kris Aquino is the "Most Beautiful Star of 2015."
This is according to YES! Magazine, who also handed the title to celebrities like Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes in 2013, KC Concepcion (2008), Sarah Geronimo (2014), Kim Chiu (2010), Anne Curtis (2012), Marian Rivera (2009) and Judy Ann Santos (2011).
Aquino was a no-show at the YES! 15th anniversary party on Monday as she opted to spend the evening with elder brother, President Benigno Aquino III, who earlier in the day gave his sixth and last State of the Nation Address at the House of Representatives.
"You [YES!] gave me a singular honor & I am eternally grateful, how I wish I could be partying with you - ano ba, Sobrang nakakakilig to be called beautiful at 44. But tonight's my only brother's night, and we're with him for an intimate gathering of family and his closest friends and co-workers," the television-host actress said on Instagram.
"Alam kong once in a lifetime ang YES Most Beautiful covers na 'to, and just how blessed I am. Kung alam nyo lang how our photo sessions restored my self-esteem, pero priority ko to be with my family," she added.
The TV host then shared photos during their family's private dinner.
One photo showed her with President Aquino and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) chief Joel Villanueva, and another with her sisters, Ballsy, Pinky and Viel.
Aquino also shared a personal snap of her two boys, Bimby and Joshua, with their uncle, President Aquino.
