Erich Gonzales announces over Instagram that she will be the new Tanduay 2018 calendar girl, surprising all her followers yesterday, November 22.

The 27-year-old TV actress and model posted a photo of herself in a dark teal bikini and what looks like a sheer kimono-style wrap inspired by the Filipino panuelo. She only wrote a straightforward caption “TANDUAY 2018” and tagging the shoot’s photographer, makeup artist, hair stylist, and overall stylist.

Celebrity makeup artist Robbie Piñera shared more of Erich Gonzales for Tanduay 2018 on his own Instagram. From what we’re seeing, some of the elements of the photos include a traditional Capiz shell Filipino windows giving that vintage colonial-era Filipino look, and deeper tropical tones to celebrate our natural wonders without being too over the top.

Erich Gonzalez succeeds former Tanduay Rhum calendar girls Jessy Mendiola (2016) and Jennylyn Mercado (2015).
