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.

    I love love love Karylle! She's smart, elegant, unassuming, fashionable and super humble about all this. I hope more women emulate her. I'm also glad that she's here in the list.

    Omg I LOVE Vicky Herrera. She used to model before then I think she started writing and put up her own store. Good to see her back in the scene again.

    Since it's a tribute to the great Alexander McQueen, I would say Liz Uy got it right hands down. I don't understand why Karylle is on the list, her outfit is plain hideous! Trying hard is screaming from this ensemble! Uuugggly!!!
