Weird that an Oscar party called for business attire for men and cocktail dresses for women. But, yeah, not that it was a real Hollywood party with designer gowns, red carpet and hobnobs with the A-list celebrities, but still, had a field day paparazzi-ing. Always nice to see all the girls looking pretty and the guys looking all dapper.

Pam looking GORGE-ASS!! I don't know what you're doing girl but you're working it! Dress from Singapore, Chanel bag. Erica in a Cole Vintage dress, Shoes from Australia, vintage bag

I like the sleeve shape, the contrasting play of transparency and sheen at the hem, the mini cinch creating texture, and violet pumps for a touch of color. Stacy Rodriguez in Stacy Rodriguez, Marc Jacobs bag, Shoes from HK.

With all the short shifts and mini dresses that night, Anne was the exception in a nude maxi dress from Zara and a vintage floral cape.

Embellishment is a key trend for Spring Summer 09, and Tina has got it down pat. Encrusted and fully beaded dress from Mango, Alexander McQueen shoes and Gucci clutch.

I love her style!! My brother saw her from across the room and told me that he saw a girl in a nude jumpsuit and that I have to take her photo. Turns out, its Angela Alarcon, owner of multibrand store Almost Famous. Liking the pulled back hair with the fringe, the mini blazer, the studded belt, EVERYTHING. Jacket from Cebuano designer Ciege Cagalawan, Jumpsuit from her own line Erstwhile, Thomas Wylde clutch, Cintura belt, Zara shoes and twisted necklace from Portugal.

Another strong Spring Summer trend, one shoulder Grecian inspired pieces. Boop in a Topshop jumpsuit, Mango evening bag and Aldo shoes.

Yes, she did shine that night. Bibai in a Marc Jacobs top, Cult Femme metallic skirt, Cintura belt, Nine West shoes and Chanel bag.

And of course dynamic duo everywhereweshoot Ryan and Garovs with their work. Garovs in street style, bustier dress by Ava Paguyo. (Garovs, this dress is sooooo you!) , Miss Sixty pumps, Betseyville bag.

Liking the color choice, not a lot of guys would choose white, but he looks really dandy in this. Mickey in a waistcoat and suit by JC Buendia, Lois jeans, shoes and Christy's bowler hat from London.

Okay, your structural jacket is either Ivarluski or Joey, I stated when I was asking for his labels. It's Ivarluski. And apparently, I was like the third person to ask him that night about his jacket. Cool. Does that mean people can actually tell a designer's signature style nowadays? Promising. Promising indeed. Ivarluski Aseron jacket, Ralph Lauren Shirt, Eairth by Melissa Dizon jeans, Sledger shoes.

I never knew a pink suit could look so good. Jun Escario in a Jun Escario suit, Etro buttondown, Alexander McQueen jeans and sneakers.

Ooooh, where did you get your military jacket Shahani? From new local designer Tatah Galias. B brand shirt, Lee jeans, belt from mum.

Uberstylist Lotho beside his work.

This collab piece did not win but it's one of my favorites. Bianca Valerio in Million Dollar Baby.

Bronze goes to Karylle as the Duchess. Styled by Rex Atienza and shot by Noelle Hernandez.

*It figures lotho, how could the Duchess have won the second when yours is more bonnga. Sorry! =) And the silver goes to Lothos work in collaboration with Niccolo Cosme. Christian Bautista as Edward Scissorhands. Awesome.

And the grand prize winner goes to the GODFATHER. Make-up by Omar Ermita, styled by Bea Constantino and shot by Paolo Pineda. And would you believe, yes, can you believe, that THAT is Diether Ocampo? Amazing.
