Apo Whang-Od, aged 106, is at her prime as the oldest featured personality on the cover of Vogue Philippines.

The beauty queen-turned-actress Halle Berry posted the recent magazine cover of Vogue's local edition featuring the tattooist and "mambabatok."

"Now THIS is real beauty," the former Miss World candidate and Oscar winner wrote with a praying emoji.

Agreeing with her were supermodel Naomi Campbell, actor-host Mario Lopez, as well as Legendary judge and retired fashion stylist Law Roach.

Naomi simply commented heart emojis while Law wrote "Agreed!"

"She’s awesome. 106 years old!" Mario commented.

Meanwhile, veteran Filipino actress Cherry Pie Picache left a comment expressing Pinoy pride for Whang-od's achievement.

"Thank you. One of our country’s treasures," Cherry Pie wrote along with an emoji of the Philippine flag.

Whang-Od has since been hailed by international media as the oldest Vogue cover star among the magazine's 27 global editions since it was founded in 1982.

Whang-Od is described as the last remaining "mambabatok" of her generation. Born in 1917, she is part of the Butbut people in Buscalan, Tinglayan, Kalinga.
