The Reluctant Stylista

Ms. KC Concepcion hosted this year’s Bb. Pilipinas competition, and I’ve been bombarded with questions about the dress she wore for the opening (and well, actually, for almost the entire show until the announcement of winners).  So I’m posting several pictures from my archives.  So sorry I forgot to take photos of everything else that was happening during that night–blogging about it wasn’t topmost in my mind then, I admit, and I usually just whip out my camera so I can take note of what KC is wearing for my own references and not because I’ll be writing about it.  I need to remind myself to take plenty of photos when I’m out during events.  It’s just a little harder when you’re working, though.

Rehearsals before the big night

It was a very busy Sunday.  KC also had ASAP that day, and right after that, we went running to Araneta Coliseum for a live taping of The Buzz.  Since KC was to host the Bb. Pilipinas pageant later that same night, it was also decided that they’d tape her segment of The Buzz there so audiences can get their pre-pageant fix while we get to loosen the tight schedule between venue changes and the shows in between.  (It was a delayed telecast, though, so outsiders could hardly tell that there was very little time difference between the two shows).  I honestly don’t know how KC does it–three live tapings in one day, and she still had shooting for a movie the next day!  Sinong busy??

These are photos taken during her taping of The Buzz.  The stage was behind us, where the lovely contestants were rehearsing for the show.

What she was wearing:
BAYO gray swimsuit (used as top) and gorgeous maxi skirt from NOEL CRISOSTOMO.

Stunning in yet another Joey Samson creation.  Joey is really known for his simple aesthetic.  The real clincher here is the pop of colors–the electric blue with that candy pink band.  As KC herself described it, “This dress is so 2011! I love it!”  We knew everyone else would be wearing bling–this is a beauty pageant after all!  Rhinestones and other embellishments are must-haves for these beauty queens.  So for someone like KC who is to host the show, we opted for a simpler silhouette, but with vivacious colors.  A stand-out in her own way, but not so in-your-face as the limelight belonged to the contestants that night.

It also falls so beautifully!

    The last dress, I saw. I remember texting you about it. It was really beautiful. Anti-Binibini, as Noel calls it (we had a conversation about the event over coffee).

    Te… you already!!! :P

  2. Ela says:

    I love the colors of the dress! And even though I’m not a showbiz fan, I like KC because she seems so confident in her own skin. She’s beautiful but not stick-thin and overly made-up.
