The Buzz August 29 2010

What Charlene wore was a great scene of spur-of-the-moment fashion decisions! I love it when suddenly, something better out of an already bright idea happens!

You see, she was supposed to wear a leather catsuit dress with slashes on the bodice. Then came fitting day. Her arms won't slide it the sleeves so Rajo asked the tailor to remove the sleeves first. When Charlene slipped in the now sleeveless dress, Rajo decided to see if her arms can now fit in the sleeves - naturally, it still won't. But what we saw made us all realize that we should keep the look. Lo and behold!

Sexified Ms. Universe look! Everyone loved it! The shoes (Blumarine, baby! Only the people who know would wear Blumarine!) and OroCher stud diamond earrings showed the idea of an effortless juxtaposition - fierce to glamorous.


That particular Sunday was special. I had the chance to get a photo op with the woman of the hour, Maria Venus Raj, 22, Philippines!


and my young designer friends Martin Bautista and Veejay Floresca plus their friend, a super kadooper beauty pageant walking brittanica got interviewed live for the show!

We love you, Maria Venus Raj!

Venus Raj placed 5th in the Miss Universe coronation night yesterday and the Filipino people, especially the queens and fairies were all in awe.

This video is viral! My friends Martin Bautista and Veejay Floresca, both young designers participated in this very sincere and hilarious clip.

The Buzz August 22 2010

I don't normally post conventionally composed photos - meaning shots with all-posed, conscious and very structured subjects. I am amazed at the awkwardness of each moment, so I always try to capture it. I don't know if it sounds weird, but what I am sure of is that it never fails to show how unassuming one camera-phone acaptures a pristinely memorable moment.

So to show, I dressed up Charlene for The Buzz again earlier today. My boss had a family emergency so she had to fly out to Davao.

She wore a one-shoulder spandex-leather with stretch jersey and mesh dress by Martin Bautista with her favorite Fendi cinderella shoes that finally got their TV debut today. Earrings from OroCher.

The Buzz August 8 2010

I have been sick the past week and I'm treating everyday as a blessing now that I'm feeling so much better. But although the bug has given me all the pain, it didn't stop me from working. I had to do series of fittings, meetings with suppliers and the Buzz too!

The Buzz August 1 2010

Dressed up Charlene for the Buzz again yesterday. I wore by stud cuffs and bangles to celebrate the death to hardware-utilitarian look for the day! (:

She looked stellar in a Rajo Laurel leather dress that's hand-embellished with beads, sequins and studs. Patent YSL Troopers graced her feet.
