Rappler live blogs the event as it happens at the SM Mall of Asia Arena
MANILA, Philippines - On Monday, Sept. 17, fashion media trooped to Salon de Ning of the Peninsula Manila Hotel to spend a few minutes with Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.
It was for the presscon where Levine was to be formally launched as Bench's new endorser.
Before the presscon, Levine already did his campaign shoot in the hotel, styled by top veteran stylist Noel Manapat.
The presscon was attended by Mr. Virgilio Lim and Mr. Bryan Lim of Suyen and their family. Bench honcho Ben Chan was there with Miguel Pastor.
Fashion bloggers Chuvaness and Laureen Uy, model-celeb Belle Daza and Tessa Prieto-Valdes were also in attendance. Valdes wore her trademark feathered headpiece, standing collar and feathery lashes. She would later make Adam laugh by telling him that she was in a Victoria's Secret-inspired get-up (Adam is known to have had two girlfriends who are Victoria's Secret angels).
