Photographs are treasures, more so old ones that transport us back in time. This is what happened last night as veteran actress Charo Santos-Concio posted a priceless photo of her—her very first magazine cover when she was just 15 years old.

“Just a little throwback… my first ever magazine cover at age 15. During my time, that was called the ‘hot pants,'” she shares.

The Weekly Women’s magazine is dated June 25, 1971, the photo features a young Charo Santos in a sleeveless denim romper with striking graphic hues paired with over-the-knee white boots. Both styles are reminiscent of the transition of fashion from the 1960s and 1970s.

A lot of personalities couldn’t help but leave comments in the post, including Karen Davila who said, “Wooow! Amazing you were able to preserve this!”

The seasoned actress replied, “So I can share significant moments in my life with my children and grandchildren—’Once upon a time there was this quite awkward and shy girl who faced her fears just to make her mother happy!”
