The Philippine Tatler Ball is THE most sophisticated event in Manila. More than being a bubbly and ballgown event, it aims to raise money and awareness for different charities. This year, the lavish fundraiser was for the benefit of Habitat for Humanity Foundation. Auctioneers, Tessa Valdes and Tim Yap were able to raise around P3 million in less than an hour! Bravo!
Congratulations to Ms. Irene Martel Francisco and Anton San Diego for helping so many causes and charities and for organizing the most fabulous formal event of the year!
I wish I took more photos but I was busy documenting my daughter’s first formal event. Thanks Anton for inviting Aryanna in place of Tom! We had a grand time!
Look who we first saw at the ball:
The man of the hour, Philippine Tatler’s editor-in-chief Anton San Diego with Aryanna.
“Team JENNIration”. With my former assistants, Mau and Nins! So proud of these girls!
And the best-dressed couple in our books goes to…
I spotted my weight-loss doctors too at the ball! I can’t wait to blog about how effective their program is!
The young and the restless:
Belle was so cute that night, when she saw Aryanna, she whispered to me, “sabihin mo sa kanya wag muna magboyfriend, ha!” Very, very ate lang s’ya! No worries Belle, she’s only 15 yrs. old, no plans in getting into a relationship yet.
I skipped the main course as I don’t eat lamb but according to my seatmates, it was mouthwatering!
I wore a platinum Jun Escario gown to the ball. It was comfortable and beautiful! The jersey fabric Jun used was the same as Halston’s. The evening jacket was made from leather and abaca! My mother of pearl and snakeskin clutch is from Aranaz.
