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.

The same teaser video was used in her actual paper invitation made by Print Divas. Yes, that's right—Isabelle included an LED display screen inside!

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.

She also wore a Michael Leyva frock for her second look.

During Isabelle's celebration at the Manila Peninsula Hotel, her guests were treated to a Beauty and the Beast like banquet. The debutante's team transformed the event place into a ballroom bountifully adorned with floral arrangements care of Robert Blancaflor, who also styled the lavish wedding of Dr. Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho.

Guests received handcrafted fragrances from Smitten as souvenirs. She also gave away prizes from Hérmes for the best dressed of the night.

Isabelle Duterte’s debut was put together by Rita Neri Event Planners headed by Lynn Ortanez.
