Manila, Philippines – The annual Presidential State of the Nation Address (SONA) was not only highlighted with the President’s speech but also with attendees fashion statements

Here are some photos of politicians and VIPs who stunned the crowd during the SONA ceremony of Pres. Noynoy Aquino:

As expected, Leyte Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez stood out in a pale pink Randy Ortiz terno with rosettes of the same color sprinkled on the bodice and skirt. Statuesque, she sat gracefully in the cramped plenary hall seat that hardly left room for her terno’s train.

Actress-turned-Cavite Rep. Lani Mercado-Revilla donned a Rajo Laurel beaded barong this year.

Paul Cabral designed the simple, vintage black dress worn by Sen. Loren Legarda, complemented by shawl made of piña fiber. Cabral also did the barong of President Aquino for this Sona.

Sen. Pia Cayetano also stunned the crowd with her modern Filipiniana-inspired dress with a touch of red and gray.

Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao was in a Paul Cabral and wife Jinkee was in a gown by young designer Martin Bautista.

Helen Gamboa, wife of Sen. Vicente Sotto III, was in a vintage white and black Maria Clara by Patis Tesoro.
