There’s a reason why model-turned-photographer Jo Ann Bitagcol landed a spot in Preview’s Best Dressed list, and she’s always stayed true to her style.
Case in point: She wore a dove gray lace dress by Tadashi Shoji to the Rustan’s Sapphire Ball, but not in a way you would expect. Slipping the dress on in reverse over a slim cut shirt and trousers, she kept the zipper at the back unzipped so it came across as a lovely overcoat.
The designer himself gave her a nod of approval, posing for a photo with her and saying he liked how she interpreted his creation.

Lesson learned: there’s more than one way to wear a dress. All in favor of expanding your wardrobe with the aid of a clever styling trick, say aye!
Tadashi is exclusively available at Rustan’s Makati, Shangri-La Plaza, Gateway Mall, Alabang Town Center and Ayala Mall Cebu.
