Celebrities on freedom in the digital age
MANILA, Philippines - On June 12 Independence Day, the MEGA Pinoy Pride ball was held at the Rizal Ballroom of the Makati Shangri-La Hotel.
The event brought together the country’s biggest names in fashion together with aspiring local designers looking to make their mark in the fashion scene.
With the theme of "Pinoy Pride" ringing all throughout the venue, celebrities, models and performers were decked out in the best evening wear created by the Philippines’ most talented designers.
As they all Instagrammed their way through the red carpet, Rappler asked them one question:
