The actress, who wore archival piece from the designer, believes the concept brings new style opportunities.

For this year’s Vogue Philippines Anniversary Gala, Gabbi Garcia channeled timeless romance in an archival piece by Vania Romoff. “I love how daring it is, but at the same time, it’s subtle. We kept it classy and sophisticated despite showing a bit of skin,” says the actress. The gown in question features a billowing silhouette with a see-through and smoked bodice. Underneath, a lace bra peeks through, adding to the overall femininity of the look. To bring a contrast, Garcia opted to wear Tiffany & Co. jewelry.

The theme of “Re-wear” is nothing new to the actress since her stylist, Pam Quiñones, Vogue Philippines fashion director and founder of Qurator Studio, would always remind her of the importance of making the most out of any garment. “I have worked with Qurator Studio for a long time, and Pam would always tell me that we have to re-wear our clothes,” Garcia shares.

The actress also enlisted her long-time makeup artist Jason Delos Reyes who used the Bobbi Brown Luxe Metal Rose Eye Shadow Palette to create a cool-toned eyeshadow look. Meanwhile, for hair, Mark Anthony Rosales swept up all her locks into a sleek bun to keep the focus on her archival gown. 

“Her overall look embodies elegance without the need for extravagant or flamboyant elements,” explains Rosales. “It’s a subtle yet powerful way to let her beauty speak for itself.”

Upon arriving at the gala, she felt elated that everybody was seemed to be enjoying the dress code. “[After] seeing everybody, [I’d say] we all look so good despite the theme being ‘Re-wear.’ It only proves that we should all do it,” she states. “Gone are the days when people would look down on celebrities who repeat their outfits. We should continue breaking the stigma. We all have the capability to restyle our clothes and to reinvent them.”
