Last Saturday, the metro’s glitterati flocked to Preview’s Best Dressed Ball bedecked in their most avant garde Alexander McQueen-inspired ensembles. The annual ball, held this year at Republiq in Resorts World Manila, was dedicated to the late great British fashion designer, who committed suicide in February.
Best Dressed awardees Gretchen Barretto, Rosanna Aranaz, Aivee Aguilar-Teo, Ann Jacobe, Garovs Garovillo, Kaye Tinga, Lloyda Lim, and Marita Fe Ganse were present, along with actors Bianca King and Carla Humphries, models Georgina Wilson and Bubbles Paraiso, host Joey Mead, singer Karylle, and radio host Vicky Herrera.
To commemorate McQueen’s unconventional aesthetic and shock-tacular fashion sense, attendees donned outrageous, dramatic, and glamorously twisted get-ups that expressed their innermost eccentricities. Prevailing themes included strong embellished shoulders, bold architectural tailoring, and decadent, intricate prints that only a die-hard stylephile could pull off. Click through the gallery below to see who wore what—and prepare to be taken aback, McQueen-style.
