Here's the lowdown on her lavish 18th birthday celebration.

Isabelle Duterte entered womanhood in the most elaborate gowns. Since her pre-debut shoot at the Malacañang Palace, we've already had a hunch that her actual celebration would be just as lavish and opulent. Let's take a look at all their preparations before the big night.

Right after her pre-debut shoot at the President's palace, Isabelle also released a teaser video shot in Australia. She wore two local designers: Garimon Roferos and Davaoeño Edgar Buyan.

And finally, on her big night, the President's granddaughter enlisted world-renowned Dubai designer Michael Cinco. Isabelle wore a cobalt blue off-shoulder ball gown with a silhouette resembling Pia Wurtzbach's iconic dress during her last walk as Miss Universe.
