Given only 10 days to prepare the outfits, Uy and Quinones commissioned top designers to produce show-stopping outfits based on their song numbers. “Every song has a different look. Pam and I collaborated and we wanted it to be highly entertaining and suited to the songs and Anne’s personality as a performer,” shares Uy.
Although we weren’t able to watch the concert live, we were able to follow it via online media. And we must admit, the outfits were definitely performance-worthy. Anne Curtis opened the show with a sparkling corset with fringes by Michael Cinco (which was flown in from Dubai). Other ensembles included a striped, hoodie jumpsuit by Martin Bautista; a shimmering, red gown with high-slit and another gown with a full ball skirt by Rajo Laurel; larger-than-life feathered headpieces by Dennis Celestial that were paired with a corset and shorts number by Albert Andrada (another Dubai-based Filipino designer); a neon pink and orange combo outfit by Regine Dulay; and cutout swimsuit by Charina Sarte. Staunch supporter Divine Lee adds that her favorites were that of Michael Cinco and Rajo Laurel since she loves shiny outfits.
Special guests included Curtis’s sister, Jasmine, Vhong Navarro and Luis Manzano (who wore Joey Samson), Vice Ganda in Dennis Celestial, Sam Milby (who went straight to the concert from the airport), Derek Ramsey, Christine Reyes and Sarah Geronimo—making the “Annebisyosa” concert a truly memorable one.
Stylists Pam Quinones and Liz Uy, with photographer Marc Nicdao, did a great job dressing up Anne Curtis.
