LOOK: Paolo Ballesteros designs terno for Mutya ng Pilipinas candidate
MANILA, Philippines – Actor Paolo Ballesteros, known both here and abroad for his makeup transformations, has added another title to his collection: fashion designer.

Ngayon hindi na secret goodluck later [Agatha Romero] and thank you den to my designer friends [Ian Paul Semira] and [Jian Lasala], [Manny Halasan] who helped execute this for tonight’s Mutya ng Pilipinas 2018 terno competition."
