"She just wanted pink!" designer Martin Bautista says of Jinkee Pacquiao, who wore a pink creation of his to today's State of the Nation Address (SONA). "She just wanted pink, so I suggested coral pink."
It's a pretty color for Mrs. Pacquiao. She looked abloom in the fetching silk shantung terno, with a smattering of crystals on the waistline, above the tiers of wispy chiffon ruffles that make up the skirt.

"I wanted something romantic, feminine, soft, and fresh," says Martin of his design, elaborating that he just submitted a sketch to Jinkee, who approved it right away. She reportedly did not have any requirements for the terno, trusting Martin with everything.
She did, however, pick out her shoes: a beige pair of mesh Louboutins with ribbon details.
