Agustin rose to meteoric modeling heights in the 70s. A size zero at the time, she was a perfect model even for Parisian modeling houses. She caught the heart of Hubert de Givenchy, and was later taken by Yves Saint Laurent. She remained to be YSL’s favorite Filipina model. Her career took a bit of a backseat when she got married to Christian Baverey in 1990.
She won the 1979 Miss International crown , New York Face of the 80’s in 1985, and won two awards in 1986 – Most Glamorous Woman in Italy and Supermodel competition 1st runner up. She remains to be very much admired for all these achievement and is still active in the showbiz scene even as she pursues further studies.

Menchu is also part of the Hyatt fashion mafia, and one of the most respect ramp models in the 1980s.
