Andrea Brillantes and Francine Diaz just added another feather to add to their caps as they made their runway debut at Michael Leyva's Enchanted fashion show held at Hilton Manila last Saturday, November 13, 2021. The two, clad in romantic ball gowns, were undeniably the highlight of the fashion show.
Andrea wore a fiery red ball gown that featured intricate beadwork, punctuated by a sheer red veil adorning her long dark hair. According to the 18-year-old actress, walking down the runway was a "dream come true" for her.
She took to Instagram to show off her appreciation for the fashion designer. She wrote, "Last night was truly spectacular. I used to only dream about walking down a runway, but to actually do it while wearing such a beautiful gown was such a humbling moment. Thank you so much @michaelleyva_ for having me last night. It was an honor to not only wear this magical piece, but to also close your fashion show. You have made a lot of women’s dreams a reality through your designs."

Francine, on the other hand, donned a strapless lavender number with stunning floral appliqués. On Instagram, the young actress thanked the designer with a short but sweet post. She captioned, "Felt like a real princess from yesterday’s fashion show. Thank you kuya Michael for choosing me to be your muse! It’s an honor for me to wear one of your beautiful gowns."
