Here are the individuals who graced the Vogue Philippines Gala as purveyors of bridging the gaps in the world of fashion, lifestyle, art, and culture
For Vogue Philippines, fashion goes beyond the glossy pages of the magazine, a vision to the eyes of a reader. Keeping it as a mission for a bigger purpose, Editor-in-Chief Bea Valdes said in her speech, “We have also learned of fashion, not as a noun, but as a word of action—to fashion, to create. We have used it as a catalyst to uncover that common human thread.” At their anniversary Gala, these common threads stretched beyond the art and fashion exhibition.
Last night, esteemed individuals in attendance were also common threads whose contributions to fashion, lifestyle, art, and culture weaved communities together. MEGA Entertainment rounds up the names whose attendance made the celebration a testament of hope for fashioning change into the Philippines and the world.
Dolly De Leon
The award-winning actress wore an archival Sassa Jimenez piece at the event, adding a little pink touch to the black and white dress code with her bubble sleeves. The outfit captured Dolly’s attack on style, which is equal parts classic and playful.
The face of pride for the Vogue Philippines June 2023 issue graced the occasion in a white two-piece number that modernizes the butterfly sleeve of our national costume. While Bretman is known for his unapologetic boldness and daring honesty, the good energy that flows through him was captured by the Rajo Laurel creation.
Fondly called by netizens as “Ninang,” one of the country’s first content creators brought out his black and white Valentino ensemble for the event. Mirroring the giraffe’s patterns in the fabric, this unconventional iteration of the print reflected the classic fun that the internet personality has always been known for.
Hanbin’s attendance was a big surprise to his fans, but the multi-hyphenate gracing the occasion was only apt for his contribution to music, fashion, and culture. The K-Pop artist donned the occasion in Louis Vuitton pieces, with his printed trousers giving the most character to his ensemble.
