MANILA – Actress Marian Rivera had her “golden moment” in this year’s much-awaited FHM Sexiest Victory Party held at the World Trade Center on Thursday.

Rivera, who was dubbed by readers of FHM Philippines as the sexiest woman in the country for 2013, walked down the runway wearing a pair of huge golden wings, which matched her shiny gold ensemble.

Save for Empress Schuck and Jackie Rice who ranked 10th and ninth, respectively, the rest of FHM’s Top 10 sexiest women did not take part in the event.
