Cong. Vilma Santos-Recto, Cong. Sol Aragones, Cong. Len Alonte, included in this SONA’s best dressed

Donning in their respective Mindanaoan-inspired ternos and gowns, these South Luzon Politiko muses wows the audience as they make their way to this year’s State of the Nation Address of President Rodrigo Duterte.

On various ‘Best Dressed Lists’ by different news agencies and blog sites, all three muses from Laguna and Batangas were some of the head turners during the event, as they elegantly carried their outfits on the red carpet.

Laguna Congresswoman Sol Aragones wore a white terno, with red, yellow, gold and black accents on the bottom part of the top and skirt, which goes half past her leg. The colors were inspired by the T’boli Tribe in South Cotabato.

Meanwhile, Batangas Congresswoman Vilma Santos sported a one piece gown, with a textured fabric, polished with vibrant Mindanaoan colors and patterns. She finished the look with a barong-inspired topper with dramatic sleeves.

On the other hand, Laguna Congresswoman Len Alonte chose a red and green terno, with patterns resembling Mindanaoan patterns as well. She paired the look with red tassel earrings and gold pointed pumps which are very much trendy today.

    The president set the tone for SONA 2017. It is supposed to be a WORKING SONA. Formal business attire her in the Philippines is channel length. Beatiful and stunning as Vilma is in this gown, it is not appropriate. I would accept something Joan Rivers called a “tea-length gown (it is above the ankle, but not mid calf)”. But floor length with a train is just INAPPROPRIATE. Also all SONA attendees sporting a designer should know that we don’t care what you do inside the hall. Its the red carpet where we see the entire gown, head to foot. See it in natural lighting and also see the wear-ability of the dress in terms of comfort-in-the-dress and ease in the mobility-of-the-dress. Also he fashion swat teams chance to look at how our men (who really look great in barongs) port our national costume. Some of our men look good also in coat and tie. Like Richard and Mar. Mar is the best because he really looks comfortable in that outfit. He carries it with ease. A coat and tie isn’t always formal affair for Mar. Coat and tie is Mars working attire. It’s a business suit. Some men really look great in barongs. In this case its a question of restrain except for some ocassions like getting married where I do appreciate a really ornate barong. Or pall bearing. Otherwise, keep the barong simple. Especially for work. Manny Pacquiao carries a barong well. He has athletic bearing. Imagine him wearing ornate barong with nothing under……He gets into a boxing rink in front of the world with much less on. Good ad (if you ask me…hheheh) But as a senator he stinks.
