Marking the brand's 30th year, Bench celebrated their anniversary by bringing back their trademark underwear show with the theme, Under The Stars. Last November 18 at the Mall of Asia Arena, the much-awaited production featured your favorite celebs and models strutting down the runway and showing off their inspiring physiques.

To dress up each of the five segments, Bench collaborated with different designers to create customized looks for their celebrity endorsers and Benchsetters, while still highlighting the Bench Body and denim pieces. Here's a roundup of the designers responsible for the showstopping outfits your fave celebs were wearing:

Not limited to just one segment, Joey Samson's designs were featured throughout different parts of the show. He was tapped to re-work Bench pieces specifically for Under The Stars, and our favorites include Maine Mendoza's cheeky all-white ensemble, Kim Chiu's sexy trackstar look, and Kathryn Bernardo's plaid number.

"For this risqué, boudoir-inspired segment, I took inspiration from the main title of the show, which is Under The Stars. I wanted it to have a Parisian-chic nightwear vibe—think robes draped off the shoulder. True to Banggo's aesthetic, the sultry all-black, sheer and sparkly pieces added a film noir feel to the black bodysuits and lace pieces of Bench Body.

JAGGY GLARINO

Featuring deconstructed coats and sexy coordinates, Jaggy Glarino's entire segment made use of khaki and denim materials. "We agreed to come up with looks that are inspired by utilitarian clothing or workwear, but I still gave it a personal touch with the tailoring, the details, and with my own structural spin," the designer shares.

YVES CAMINGUE

Youth culture reigned supreme for the Bench Universe segment with camo bomber jackets and varsity garb, along with exaggerated elements such as sequins on joggers and fluffy sleeves. "My references include millennial style, collegiate garb, and celebrity pop culture. These styles are right up my alley, and I gave it my own spin by supersizing certain elements." Yves shares.
