SLIM: SALVACION LIM HIGGINS GALA

It might have been a night at The MET, localized at the Museum of the Filipino People, National Museum of the Philippines. And I missed it. Damn. Thank goodness for stylebible.ph, click HERE for all photos. Reposting here Isha! Thanks. =)

My top picks are mostly floor sweeping numbers, which I think is appropriate considering the event was a retrospective in honor of pioneer couturier Salvacion Slim Higgins. There were only two short dresses that captured my eye, the others were either too casual or, too cocktail-ey, which, in a formal event would look too unformal. Duh. ANYWAYZ. Heres the blogroll, ta! da!

Preview Editor-in-Chief, Pauline Suaco-Juan in Cary Santiago. Pauline Suaco-Juan in Cary Santiago. I think that had to said twice.

Preview Fashion Editor, Liz Uy in vintage Slims. I love that poufy derriere with the short train, amazing how contemporary the piece still looks with the right shoes and fab makeup.

An unexpected color choice but still a picture of sophistication. Preview's Beauty Editor-at-Large, Agoo Bengzon in Martin Bautista.

Preview's Editorial Assistant Anna Canlas in Rajo Laurel. Draping in a fluid high shine fabric always looks photogenic, and it helps too that her color choice complements her dusky skin. Points!

A touch of 80's for Preview's other Editorial Assistant, Cit-Cit Sioson. With fashion's love affair for that decadent era, it's only natural for it to trickle down to red carpet pieces. If this gown was in electric blue, I'd die. But since it's in this season's, (as well as next even) shade of nude, then it's PASOK!

Loving that train. And brown is such a strong color for Holiday. Structural folds on the chest gives this piece that extra oomph. Angela Alarcon in Chris Diaz.

Heres the other short dress that I liked, that black bow on the neck reminds me of Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel-esque. The black ornamental cutouts and layered tiers remind me of Cary Santiago. But all in all, its a very pretty dress, I'd wear it. And an unpredictable footwear choice also, not so high pumps. So next season. Celine Lopez in Dennis Lustico.

My bestie Melissa Dizon out and about already after giving birth, I'm guessing that's Eairth she's wearing and sporting a new do' too. Welcome to the She Bang's club Iss!

I love eeeet. Contrasting textures of mattes, shiny grays and ebony blacks for an old world and yet contemporary romantic feel. Firma's dynamic duo, Ricky Toledo and Chito Vijandre.

Simple. Classic. Black. Bianca Gonzales in Joey Samson.

ROWR. This is just breathtaking. Teresa Herrera in Rajo Laurel.

When black tie means a gold trimmed bow tie by Vivienne Westwood. I like. Raymond Gutierrez in Francis Libiran top, John Varvatos pants, Paul Smith shoes.
