It’s MEGA Magazine’s Most Stylish party once again! I remember when I first opened my invite, my first concern was what I was going to wear. (Haha!) You can’t blame me you know. Huge pressure to be on the same stage as the other women on the list, it really is! Anyway, so having just come back from my trip to Europe, I really had no time to prepare an outfit for myself. Thank God for my good friend, designer extraordinaire Eric Delos Santos, who came to save this damsel in distress!
Isn’t this gown just divine?!!! I love how Eric used heavy materials and textures but still managed to make such a soft and feminine design. With a gown as beautiful as this, styling becomes a piece of cake! All I added was a gold belt to cinch my waist and a few more gold accessories for a “ang yaman ko lang” look. Kidding aside, the gold accents really adds sophistication and makes the entire look much more formal and appropriate for nightwear.
In keeping with the night look, I asked my makeup artist Pong Niu to apply smokey makeup on me instead of the usual makeup associated with florals and everything girly. For my hair, instead of wearing it all up in a neat and tidy up do, I opted for a messy ponytail to keep my look fresh and young. It’s also the perfect hairstyle to show off my gown’s low cut back and these beautiful vintage earrings I got from a thrift store in Barcelona. (Can I just say, these earrings are mighty heavy, but I still bought them anyway because they’re too pretty! According to the store owner, they’re vintage earrings from Paris. Imagine what stories these earrings can tell!)
