Valenzuela City Councilor Shalani Soledad will wear a yellow gown made by leading designer Rajo Laurel during the historic inauguration of her boyfriend Noynoy Aquino on June 30, 2010.
We caught on Twitter this picture of Shalani fitting the gown, presumably in Rajo Laurel’s Makati atelier. Fans were quick to say she looks lovely in the gown, which is really a terno, a Filipino costume popularized by former First Lady Imelda Marcos. The color of choice is of course yellow. Even while being Noynoy’s girlfriend, Shalani is known to have been one of the tireless supporters of the Noynoy campaign.
No photos have leaked yet of what Kris Aquino will wear to the June 30 inaugural, or of her sisters Ballsy, Pinky and Viel. President Noy’s sartorial needs will be taken care of by appointed presidential designers Paul Cabral and JC Buendia, with help from presidential stylist Liz Uy.
