This week has been a tizzy of one thrilling moment after another; and in the fashion industry, there was certainly no shortage of noteworthy subject matter to fill our social media feeds and chat rooms with. While sometimes we just like a good, mindless Facebook scrawl as much as any other modern (read: digitalized) cool kid, it’s still better to be equipped with conversation starters and hot scoops apart from just scrolling through your feed, liking photos and generally just taking it all in. Is that so bad? No. So read on and, well, you may as well hit the "Share" button.
1. SAAB AND JIM BACARRO SHOW US HOW TO THROW A ROCK ‘N’ ROLL WEDDING WITH LOADS OF CHEESE.
The (inedible) endearing kind of cheese, we mean. We were there and we felt love overflow in the room. And we’re not just being silly; the mother of the bride, Pia Magalona, said it herself in her speech during the dinner. Plus, don’t you just love how they were able to incorporate the signature rock star edge into such a romantic wedding?
2. MISS PHILIPPINES’ NATIONAL COSTUME WAS CREATED BY A COLOMBIAN DESIGNER. WHAT?
It just doesn’t make sense and especially for our local designers. Did we just hear someone say they’re not good enough? Ouch! It’s just like that guy you’re seeing in college who makes a disappearing act (Houdini, is that you?) because he thinks you’re not good enough. That hurts. A lot.
3. THE SWALLOW FACE IS THE NEW DUCK FACE.
So, have you received the latest “notification” on the next-level selfie game? No? Then hold it right there. Before you snap another one of your perfected duck faces, open your eyes a little wider and “slightly part your mouth as if you’re a baby bird waiting to be fed by its mommy.” Practice! Practice! Practice!
Look! Martine Cajucom has it down pat!
4. RAJO’S DRESS FOUND ITS TWIN FROM THE VERSACE COUTURE 2015 COLLECTION
They’re not identical but the resemblance is mind-blowing. We couldn’t help but think: Did Donatello sneak into Rajo’s 2011 files? Hmmm…
5. MOST EVERYONE WANTS TO BE AN IT GIRL (AS PROVEN BY OUR POLL)
Or be part of the It barkada, at least. But then again, you need to be an It girl to be part of the It barkada. You get the equation.
