Preview's BARBIE Ball

It was Preview Magazine's Best Dressed Ball once again last June 26, Friday at White Space in Makati and this time people did their own versions of Mantel's Barbie and Ken. Big waves and bold colored tutus were everywhere--Barbie's signature style--and the men came in suits of different cuts and colors as Ken would have donned had he attended the event. I came in my vintage silver frock from my pre-graduation fashion show circa 2004 (yes, that piece I would never sell, not even to save my life!)

Each Preview Ball is jam packed with all the big names present in the industry. Food amazing, drinks overflowing. The Best Dressed chicas were all so deserving in my humble opinion. Congrats to my friend Divine Lee for making it to this year's list! Love the Lanvins too!

And now onto the photos!

LMAO! Oops sorry, I was trying to remember if it was Mattel or Mantel and went for the latter. Haha! Thank you for the correction. :-)

I wanted to inquire about a dress that Shaina Magdayao wore on The Buzz last Sunday. I think she thanked you for it. Please email me at sanjuan.rose@gmail.com
