So hauntingly beautiful.

Yesterday, Maja Salvador posted several teasers of the upcoming episode for her ABS-CBN TV drama, Wildflower. The actress shared photos of herself in a black gown, which she wore for her character's wedding with co-actor RK Bagatsing.

In an exclusive interview, Preview talked to Maja's stylist Regi Cruz about the stunning piece that ties the episode together.

The floor-length ball gown, according to the stylist, was created by designer Val Taguba. The bodice and the skirt were made in French lace and encrusted with Swarovski crystals. "[We were] inspired by royal Spanish weddings," says Regi.

When they were conceptualizing the dress, the stylist shares that they indeed had a specific style direction in mind. "[We wanted] the look to speak of grandness, elegance, and wealth," he says. And rightfully so, because Maja's character Ivy Aguas is the definition of opulence.

The final look included a black veil as well, held by a diamond-studded pieneta. Regi also revealed that Maja wore a full nine-carat diamond eternity necklace for the wedding episode.

But why a black wedding dress, you ask? Well, if you've tuned in to at least one episode, the answer would be obvious. Maja's character Ivy is a tough soul bent on getting revenge for her parents' untimely death, and is a few steps away from her goal by getting married to the son of her enemy.

"The reason for choosing to wear a black gown, aside from the fact that her character is non-traditional, is that it [serves as a] warning that there would be bigger and more thought-provoking things to come," the stylist reveals. Meaning, this wedding is only the beginning for Maja's character.
