SUPERSTARS BY ALL ACCOUNTS
With Thai TV’s most eligible bachelor, Chakrit Yamnam, having tied the knot with one of the hottest actresses on screen,
“Woonsen” Viritipa Pakdeeprasong, Glamor makes it our mission to find out how things are working out for this high-profile couple.
Getting an interview with either Chakrit or Woonsen isn’t easy as both are very busy. But for our fans we did manage a time slot with Chakrit.
Finally, we sat down with Chakrit for a chat. The wedding band on his finger gleaming, we started by asking about the ring itself.
“This ring is really special,” said Chakrit, “because the sapphires on them were given by my mother. She said that it is her way of giving her blessings and to remind us to love and cherish each other. The setting is my own design. I combined what I like with what I think Woonsen would like and came up with this.”
One of Thailand’s hottest stars, Chakrit has lots of work lined up. “This year is a busy one and so will next year be. I have a few shows already lined up like Iron Chef and the return of Pen-Tor [his long-running sitcom]. Even as an actor you can’t just sit on past successes and hope things will turn out well in the future.” According to Chakrit the entertainment industry in indeed a very competitive one. “There are many changes happening all the time. Programs, people and plans change so it is important to keep in touch and see the trends. I am not a single man now, so planning for the future is very important.”
Tinakorn Asvarak, Managing Director of Kudo Co., Ltd., values more than all else his freedom. Glamor meets up with one of the most successful event organizers in Thailand while he busily prepares the event “Tribute to Her Majesty the Queen’s 80th Birthday Anniversary” at Central World.
Kittinuch (Gloy) and Kittinart (Gib) Amatayakul are twins who share a passion for design. We chill out and chat with two up-and-coming creatives.
Gloy studies jewelry design and Gib fabric design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. As an intern at Beauty Gems, Gloy has had opportunity to design a pendant commemorating His Majesty’s 85th birthday celebrations
Chindapa Boonyagorn, owner of Audrine vintage online shop, is a celebrity who certainly merits the title ‘legally glam’. Glamor has a chat to find out how she manages to combine a love for both law and fashion.
Genji restaurant takes inspiration from a literary classic to create superb Japanese cuisine.
Genji is named after The Tale of Genji, written by an aristocrat of the Japanese imperial court and considered by many to be the world’s first novel. The restaurant, located at Swissotel Nai Lert Park, certainly lives up to its noble heritage. At its helm is Phollawud Bodiratnangkura, or Tat, who as creative director tends to every detail such as the venue’s authentic Japanese design.
Tat explains further: “Coming from a family with years of experience in the food and beverage business, I think it’s natural I have a great interest in food and running a restaurant. However, what makes Genji unique is its true Japanese ambience.”
Srisuphang Morris takes great pride in learning about everything she does. Glamor chats with her about just what it means to know something by heart.
Srisuphang Morris begins with a clear assertion: “I believe that before you can go and tell others what to do, you need to know it yourself.”
Even as a youngster she took everything she did seriously. “When I was a teenager I had a friend who lived in Chakrawad near Saphan Han. Her dressmaker lived close by, so whenever I went over we would have dresses made. Then I got interested in learning dressmaking. The end result was a dress suit. It was perfect for me because I made it myself. When people commented that it was so nice, I was very proud and I would tell them that I made it myself. However, it was the only dress I ever made. Learning to make the dress I realized that measurements need to be taken seriously to make a dress fit perfectly. And now that I know this, I can tell a dressmaker exactly what I want.”
Just what happens behind the scenes when you have Bangkok’s hottest celebrities together for a fashion show set up?
Wanpen Jermprapai is CEO of Chamchan Health and Beauty Institute and president of Cisco Engineering Co., Ltd. No doubt, she is a very busy woman – and an equally successful one. Her path to success, however, has not been easy. When she was young her family were farmers, and as a little girl she did her fair share of hard, physical work, along with all the other duties as part of being a good daughter. At the same time, she managed to study hard with an eye on the future.
Peach Pachara, Pear Pimpisa and Pie Khemmanat are currently three of the hottest young celebrities. The person behind their success is Chanadda Chirathivat, also known as Som Chanadda, managing director of Diamond Today.
Chanadda observes that when growing up her children were all quite different from each other. Back then the eldest, Pear, was highly responsible. Even when very younger she seemed to think like an adult, particularly when it came to taking care of her brother and sister. And she always received good grades. Chanadda rarely needed to worry about her.
