iza_calzado.jpgActress and TV host Iza Calzado is all set to star in GMA-7’s newest primetime series The Beauty Queen with 2007 Binibining Pilipinas-World Maggie Wilson and fellow Kapuso star Katrina Halili, PEP.ph reports. The award-winning actress donned a two-piece swimsuit, baring her curves and toned legs for the show’s teaser. Although Iza was apprehensive about it at first, co-star Maggie soothed her nerves by telling her, “Kaya mo 'yan girl! You're very sexy!”

More than just losing weight, however, Iza is dedicated to keeping her body fit and fab through running, pilates, and pole dancing. “I just don't want to lose weight but I want to be flexible as well. Kaya nakakatulong din yung may mga dance numbers ko sa Party Pilipinas kasi gumagalaw ang lahat ng parte ng katawan ko."

"Many think kasi na porke't I was a fat kid noon, heto na ang pinaka-revenge ko na maging sexy. Yes, I was over 200 pounds noon but I use that as my inspiration. Hindi ako nahihiya sa katawan ko noon. I want to send out a message to other kids who have weight problems as well, na kung kaya ko, kaya rin nila. Determination and concentration lang yan. And of course, lots of support from the people you love and loves you back whatever body type you are in."

Like Iza, do you find yourself wanting to show off your sexy side? Being sexy doesn’t necessarily mean being model thin or baring all your curves—you can be sexy just by being you! Coax out your sensual side with these tips from Female Network.


Exercising may not be on top of your list of favorite things to do but sticking to a regular routine can help shed off those extra pounds and tone your body. It’s good for your health and it helps improve your mood too (thanks to neurotransmitters and endorphins)! A stress-free you is a happier, more confident you. Exercising also keeps you in touch with your body and your sensuality. Be adventurous and try something a little bit more exotic like strip aerobics or pole dancing lessons. If you find yourself complaining as soon as you hear the word exercise—so not sexy—it’s time to get motivated. Be brave and take that first step!  


It’s so easy to find flaws in everything—including your body. Do yourself a favor and ditch all the negative vibes. Nobody’s perfect so aim to embrace your flaws instead. The next time you look in the mirror, tell yourself, “You’re beautiful,” and really believe in it. Make this a little daily ritual to motivate yourself. You may find it silly at first but learning to give yourself compliments is one lesson you shouldn’t miss out on! Find out what you love about yourself, be it the way your hair looks when you flip it over your shoulder or the shape of your hips, and own it.  


The word ‘sexy’ can mean a lot of things to different people. In the same vein, what makes you feel sexy may not be the same as what your best girlfriend or your mom may think. Put yourself first and take cues from your personal experience—you don’t want yourself to feel uncomfortable trying to be something you aren’t! Once you know what you want, use these to amp up your sexiness: surround yourself with things that make you feel fierce and powerful. Once you feel sexy, others will start noticing it too.


Anger and stress can be such downers so instead of dwelling on your terror boss and his incompetence, focus on keeping yourself happy. Relax—it seems like such a simple thing but most of us don’t even know how to do it, thanks to the constant hustle and bustle of life.  So stop hunching those shoulders and indulge in the things that make you happy, even if it’s just for a short while. Live a little. Get your sexy out.


Being sexy isn’t just about looking good—it’s in the attitude! A strong, confident woman oozes sex appeal, so believe in yourself first; the rest will come afterward. Now we’re not saying you should suddenly walk with a swagger or adopt an arrogant attitude. Be in control and focus on building up poise and elegance. You can be classy and look confident at the same time! People pick up on cues really quickly so as long as you’re self-assured and show it, others will believe you too.
