Taylor Swift’s sexy black dress by Pinoy designer
American singer Taylor Swift was spotted wearing a dress by a Filipino designer at an event in New York.
In the Instagram account of The Archives and Showroom, a photo was shared featuring the pop star donning a dress by local fashion designer Jun Escario.
Escario said he was surprised when he found out that the pop star wore his creation. He now joins other Filipino designers such as Michael Cinco, Oliver Tolentino and Monique Lhullier, who have dressed some of Hollywood’s A-list stars.
‘Ma’ Rosa’ wins another award
Filipino filmmaker Brillante Mendoza and his film Ma’Rosa won another award, this time at the recently-concluded 54th Gijón International Film Festival in Spain.
Mendoza carried the Philippines’ pride at the Spanish film festival by winning Best Director for the same film that earned the country and Jaclyn Jose the first Best Actress award from the Cannes International Film Festival.
The Filipino filmmaker was described on the Gijón festival site as “one of the exponents and prolific authors of the current Asian cinema highs” and “as always enjoyed the favor of critics thanks to risky subjects with which reality unfiltered plasma; issues such as incest, bigamy, crime or prostitution.”
Pia Wurtzbach in Singapore
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach was in Singapore to join the next season of Asia’s Next Top Model as guest judge.
In a photo shared on Instagram, the beauty queen was shown turning a bridge in Singapore into a catwalk while half-naked male models walk behind her.
Fans went crazy upon seeing the photo but they were even more surprised when Pia posted a snapchat video of her having dinner at Osteria Mozza (a top Italian restaurant in Singapore) with rumored boyfriend Marlon Stockinger after the shoot. The racing driver, on the other hand, posted a photo on Instagram along with the rather simple yet meaningful caption: Dinner date.
