|Imelda Romualdez Marcos|
Philippines' former First Lady
Speaking of beauty, poise, grace and tons of wit the former First Lady of the Philippines Imelda Remedios Visitacion Romualdez-Marcos is a living icon. No one comes close to her when it comes to elegance and grandiose sophistication during her youth. In fact the word 'Imeldific' which means ostentatious and extravagance was coined after her name for her lavish love for beautiful things and luxurious lifestyle, not to mention her monstrous collection of more than a thousand pairs of expensive shoes, costly jewelries, designer gowns and exclusive paintings from renowned world-class artists.

Now apart from her 'Imeldific' lifestyle and captivating beauty which we are mostly aware of, Imelda has also earned another title. We all know about the political controversies which continue to haunt the life of the Marcoses even today. And despite facing numerous allegations regarding her family's source of wealth, she remained unperturbed and was never imprisoned on the legal charges filed against her. A firm believer of the Truth, the Good and the Beautiful, she still continued to wield power and her ability to survive enormous upheavals and overcome life's seemingly insurmountable challenges has led her to be called the "Asia's Steel Butterfly".
