2009 SONA Fashion Showcase


Like I said on my earlier post I am more interested to see what the Philippine lawmakers / politicians and their spouses are wearing for this yearly gathering of the rich, the powerful and the uhmmmm… (supply your own adjective here).

Anyway, thanks to Philippine Star Reporter Christina Mendez for supplying the earliest photos of what the Philippine Senators are wearing and what trends to expect later on at the Batasang Pambansa during your President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s State of the Nation Address (SONA)

  1. I heart Jinggoy Estrada’s barong had a statement written on it but I don’t have a close-up picture. It says Gloria Resign I will have to get a copy of his photo.

  2. I am having a writers block and your blog entry Earth gives a lightbulb on my head!

    Yeah, ma-scrutinize nga rin ang fashion minded politicians natin. Pa-copy ng pics ah at makagawa ng commentaries…

    Salamat in advance.
