We all can’t wait for 2020 to be over. As soon as possible please!

But while there are many things about this year that we want to sweep under the rug, including this damn virus, we would definitely want to keep for posterity our Ginebra San Miguel calendar with the beautiful Sanya Lopez. 

A new year, though, deserves a new inspiration. And so for 2021 our new Ginebra San Miguel Calendar girl is Christelle Abello! 

Christelle, 26, may be a new name for many of you as she isn’t a celebrity we’re used to seeing onscreen—yet! She is in, fact, a Filipina living in the US whose family has roots in Aklan. She has a degree in Communication from California State University and has done the regular pageant rounds there. This got her a chance to officially compete in the first Miss Universe Philippines, which is finally scheduled to happen on October 25 in Baguio City. 

For Christelle, being chosen as the next Ginebra San Miguel calendar girl is an opportunity of a lifetime. “I’m so thrilled. I’m so proud and honored to represent Ginebra San Miguel. This is an opportunity of a lifetime and I’m so grateful to be a part of such an iconic and historical brand,” she says.  

From among many possible choices, Ginebra San Miguel picked Christelle.  The GSM guys, who have built a veritable treasure trove of calendar girls in 32 years of keeping it in print, have developed a keen eye for women who not only represent their brands, but are true paragons of Pinay beauty. They are confident their choices always end up as National Darlings

“More than just a pretty face, our Ginebra San Miguel Calendar Girl for 2021 definitely personifies our latest campaign ‘One Ginebra Nation.’ We were not only charmed by her intelligence, but also by her optimism, her courage, her never-say-die spirit, her heart for others, and love for her kababayan. We feel that she best represents the brand and we are very happy to welcome Christelle to our Ginebra San Miguel family,” relates Ginebra San Miguel Inc. (GSMI) Sales and Marketing manager Allan Mercado. 

Christelle Abello must have done a really good job impressing Ginebra San Miguel. You can see the result of her work here for the first time! 

2020, if you can just step aside right now and give Christelle Abello her time to shine!
