Volleyball star Michele Gumabao and her 'nude' photo

Former De La Salle University (DLSU) volleybelle Michele Gumabao is at the eye of the storm as pictures she posted on her Instagram account raised baring her naked body in a campaign for Toby’s Sports, one the country’s leading sports retail establishments.

The photos, shot by celebrated photographer Jojit Lorenzo, showed the 21-year-old daughter of former public servant and actor turned pastor Dennis Roldan apparently clad in nothing trying to spike a volleyball while being splashed in water; her arm conveniently covering her breasts in the movement.  

The campaign also includes iconic Filipino athletes James Yap of the San Mig Coffee Mixers in the PBA and goalkeeper Neil Etheridge of the Philippine Azkals.

During the photo shoot itself, Michele says that it was a closed set wherein only Lorenzo and a select few which included her sister, her manager and the person tasked to douse her being the only ones allowed in the studio.

She even shared that her bra had to be snipped and it was the elastic tape that held everything together. The water effect, however, was a masterfully timed event that coincided flawlessly with the shots. They were not edited in.

Michele did sign a contract for the campaign that included a clause for any promotional material to be used as billboards and print ads.
