MANILA - Rochelle Pangilinan was a vision in her Michael Cinco gown as she walked down the aisle to marry Arthur Solinap early this week.
And fashion magazine Emirates Woman thinks so as well, saying the former Sexbomb dancer's exquisite mermaid dress is Cinco's "most incredible" creation yet.
"Have you ever seen another wedding dress quite like this? We don't think we have," Emirates Woman's Emma Day, who keeps a weekly list of UAE's best dressed women, wrote in her feature.
Day gushed about the gown's three-meter cape, which was encrusted with Swarovski crystals, beads, and pearls, noting that its silhouette echoed that of a lace hand fan.
She added that the details must have "required some serious hours of work" in the atelier of Cinco, who is based in Dubai.
A day after her wedding, Pangilinan thanked Cinco for her gown.
"Ibang klase ang ginawa mo for me. Ibang saya ang naramdaman ko from the day na sinukat ko at iyong araw na nakita ko na nang personal ang gown," she said.
"Naiyak na lang ako sa saya noong nakita ko ang gown! Habang buhay ko siyang pag mamasdan."
