MANILA, Philippines -- The first lady of Philippine boxing looked radiant in her first walk down a fashion ramp for the country's largest lifestyle brand.

Jinkee Pacquiao, the wife of Philippine boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao, made her debut as a ramp model during the 25th anniversary fashion show of local clothing line Bench on Thursday.

"Ako, okay lang ako na rarampa, although first time ko. Hindi lang ako kumportable sa stage, hindi ko alam madulas pala 'yung shoes," Jinkee told ABS-CBN News shortly after her appearance on stage at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Jinkee, who wore a long white gown by fashion deisigner Albert Andrada, walked side by side with Manny, who kept it simple in dark jeans and a black suit.

"Of course she's always beautiful. Enjoy naman," Manny said, referring to his wife's participation in "Bench Universe."

The celebrity couple are among the endorsers of Bench as a lifestyle brand. Manny endorses a perfume called "Lucky Punch," while Jinkee is the face of another spray-on scent called "Lucky Charm."

"We're very happy na binigyan kami ni Ben Chan (Bench founder) ng opportunity to be part of this event," Jinkee said.
