I normally stay home with the family on a Sunday night, but last Sunday was different. I got two tickets to the Samsung Metrowear Icon Rajo Laurel, and it was just too good to pass up :)
Of course, Samsung was the major sponsor. Look at that slim TV!
My date for the night was, who else?, but my mom:
The invite said cocktails at 7PM, doors will open at 8PM. But like any event, it didn't start on time. And we were just waiting outside the ballroom while we waited for the doors to open, so we spent the time munching on yummy sweets. Here's an instagram shot that I posted that night:
The events production team was running around, including some models like Jessica Yang, who posted for me hehe... Fancying those chrome nails :D
I couldn't take my eyes off Teresa Herrera's outfit.
Now, if only I had the abs to wear this one ;)
By around 830PM, we were welcomed into the ballroom. Live flute music was provided for a relaxing and soothing vibe:
Before 9PM, host Teresa Herrera went on stage. I just had to take a photo of her back—a contrasting mix of sweet dominatrix style, don't you agree?
Here are some of my fave looks from the show:
I particularly love the drama of these white and black hoops on model Jasmine Maierhoffer
Sexy back with glitter hoops on one arm
Mom and I are so Chinese! We both love the glitter dress and red ball skirt ;)
Make a grand entrance via a long cape - seen on Joan Bitangol
Dreaming of the sequined dress with matte panel trail on Irish Ong (left)
Look at the back detail!
This one is very nice as well - such a relaxed and regal look, but this can only be pulled off by tall and slim women — like these models
This red ensemble is so cute! Perfect for model Hye Won ;)
And hopefully, for me too haha...
One of the reasons I went as well is that my cousin-in-law Joey Mead King did her last runway walk that night. Here she is in a gorgeous red serpentine cut dress. There are hoop details as well — which can be seen in most of Rajo's pieces.
... and the finale...
Rajo Laurel, the man of the hour, dancing as he walked the runway
Congratulations, Happy Birthday and Happy 20th anniversary, Rajo :D
