Preview girl Iza Calzado proves just how much it pays to dress nicely anywhere you go. Case in point: her beau, Ben Wintle suprised her by getting down on one knee to propose!

She fit right in the flower-laden pathway, clad in her long floral maxi dress and beige Hermès slides. Iza even shrugged off the denim jacket to keep the feminine vibe as she reached for her bouquet.
Surrounded by her family and close friends including renowned fashion designer Rajo Laurel, Ben, who is British with a distinct accent, proposes his love for Iza, "Gusto ko, ikaw lamang ang makasama kong kumain at sumayaw habang buhay. (I want to spend my life dancing and dining only with you.)" How sweet!
Rajo tells Preview that Ben planned the proposal—down to the lunch menu—a month ago and specifically chose Sonya's Garden Tagaytay as the venue. "This was Iza's father's favorite place and [where they had their] last family photograph together." And when asked what was the cover for the plan, Rajo shares "[Ben] texted us to save the date. They both had family visiting overseas so they wanted a Sunday lunch out of town so it was perfect timing."
Iza was "bewildered, surprised, and confused. She was jesting and joking at first then it dawned on her that this is for real," Rajo says. But of course, she said yes!
Congratulations to the happy couple!
