Beauty and fashion came together for one night as the biggest players in the entertainment industry showed their interpretations of contemporary art at the Preview Ball 2022.
Held on August 31, 2022, at the Blue Leaf Cosmopolitan, the highly-anticipated event was graced by actresses, vloggers, singers, makeup artists, and stylists whose outfits showcased what inclusivity means in modern-day fashion.
Here is PEP.ph’s (Philippine Entertainment Portal) list of pink carpet head-turners.
BEST IN BLACK
The Unkabogable Vice Ganda’s black gown is the creation of fashion designer Neric Beltran, who said in an Instagram post that the ‘paper airplane’ is “Inspired by the work of master metal sculptor @jinggoybuensuceso”
Looking sleek and powerful, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach puts on an all-black ensemble from luxury brand Yves Saint Laurent, styled by Perry Tabora.
Another beauty queen on the list is none other than Nicole Cordoves, slaying in a sweet but daring velvet custom piece by fashion brand JUSTBONITA.
Raissa Dimacali, the woman behind Jasmine Curtis-Smith’s floral OOTN, revealed that it took her 264 hours to complete the garment by meticulously manipulating the use of delicate chiffon and heat gun, and putting everything together by carefully hand stitching it piece by piece to the base.
Walking down the pink carpet like the goddess-on-earth that she is, Kapuso primetime queen Marian Rivera wows in the Renata dress, a form-fitting pink halter draped fringe piece from Cult Gaia.

Musical artist Jesych
The custome ensemble of Taiwanese model Jessica Yang, who goes by Jesych as her musical artist stage name, is another piece from JUSTBONITA that is “inspired by the mistress of the water king.”
JUSTBONITA’s brand owner Bonita Penaranda is all glammed up in her custom design “serving iridescent realness.”
Renowned cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao unleashes the “geek who just likes dressing up as her favorite video game characters” in a sparkly custom Mara Chua gown.
