MANILA – There's more to the annual State of the Nation Address (SONA) than the President's speech as politicians, celebrities and their guests donning their best outfit, making the SONA red carpet like a fashion show.

This year is no different. From designer gowns and dresses made from native materials to clothes that convey their personal advocacies, those who attended President Benigno Aquino III’s fourth SONA on Monday made their fashion statements at the red carpet at the Batasang Pambansa.
