She ain't called fashion's new muse for no reason. Our May cover girl, Janine Gutierrez, made it to our Best Dressed List for the night as soon as she arrived at the venue, after serious prep work at hottie photog, BJ Pascual's abode. And what happens when you get dolled up at a photog's place, you ask? An insta-shoot, that's what. See what happened below as she takes us through it.
"For my beauty look, makeup artist Omar Ermita created a soft smoky eye and nude lip combo to highlight my eyes. I actually wore the Happy Skin X Preview lippie! As for my hair, I left it down but asked hairstylist Ethan David to create an extreme side part for a more directional take on the usual sleek hairstyle."
"From the very beginning, I already knew I wanted to wear a menswear-inspired ensemble. I wanted to deviate from my usual feminine aesthetic and what better way to do it than with a suit?"

"I enlisted the help of designer Ziggy Savella and stylist MJ Benitez and, with the creative formal theme in mind, we decided to give the classic suit a retro-modern twist."

" We opted for a cropped jacket and matching wide leg trousers. I especially loved the navy checked fabric they chose for me–it gave the whole look extra cheek."
Did she really just get ready for the ball? Or did she shoot an editorial or a campaign? Either way, we loved it, Janine!
