For the Valentino show by Pierpaolo Piccioli, Anne opted for a black mini dress paired with a matching blazer. However, this was no ordinary black ensemble. Her outfit featured a captivating 3D pattern of flowers that breathed life into the entire look. To further elevate her ensemble, Anne added a metallic green shoulder bag, adding a touch of contrast and a dash of contemporary flair to her overall appearance. The metallic hue served as the perfect complement to the black attire, creating a visual balance that enhanced the modern minimalism of her outfit.

During her time at Louis Vuitton, Anne Curtis continued to captivate with her fashion choices, exuding an aura of simple yet chic elegance. Her ensemble for the occasion featured a tweed dress adorned with triangular designs enveloping her bodice. This choice showcased Anne’s ability to embrace understated sophistication while still making a memorable statement. The intricate patterns on the dress added an element of intrigue to her overall look. She opted for a Petite Malle Capitale bag, which perfectly complemented the ensemble and added a touch of Louis Vuitton luxury to her outfit. Her choice of boots added a modern edge, proving that you don’t always have to go all-out to make a fashion statement.

She wore a crystal-encrusted Valentino gown, where the upper part of the bodice was adorned with glimmering gems. The straps led to an exquisite x-cross design at the back, making her a radiant presence at this illustrious event.

At the Roger Vivier showcase, Nadine wore a metallic silver dress crafted by Filipino designer Job Dacon. Her choice not only highlighted her penchant for elegance but also showcased Filipino design talent. By choosing a creation from the repertoire of Job Dacon, Nadine not only highlighted her own affinity for elegance but also celebrated and showcased the extraordinary pool of Filipino design talent on the grand international stage of fashion.

For Yohji Yamamoto, Nadine made a bold fashion move by donning a deconstructed coat jacket that perfectly encapsulated the designer’s distinct identity. The look is reflective of the brand’s visual outlook, mirroring the unique and unconventional aesthetic that Yohji Yamamoto is renowned for. It spoke of asymmetry, unexpected angles, and deliberate disarray that, when combined, form a balanced whole that makes sense.
