Kris Aquino went all out in coming up with the perfect gown for her brother President Benigno Aquino 3rd’s final State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Monday.


The top—and often controversial—TV and movie celebrity gets The Manila Times’ thumbs up for best dressed at SONA 2015 in her pastel blue Filipiniana ensemble—an off-shoulder trumpet piña callado, whose fabric is from Lumban, Laguna and sewn in Antipolo City.

Her life ever an open book via her Instagram account (@withlovekrisaquino), the actress and host was the first to post her SONA attire from her very own living room. Patronizing local artisans, Aquino’s designer of choice for this year is the 22-year-old Michael Leyva, whose designs have been worn by A-List celebrity Anne Curtis.

With Kris in her Instagram post were her sons Joshua and Bimby who attended their uncle’s SONA in matching barong Tagalog, also made from Lucban, Quezon embroidered piña.

And as if she were attending a showbiz event, Kris and her sons were done up by stylists as she listed the crew who dressed them up. “Make up by @juansarte… styling for my sons by @bangpineda & @giancarlodavid… styling for me by @booyap and @kimmyyap.”

In her postscript, Kris wrote, “My brooch holding the pañuelo in place was my Mom’s.”

  1. Kahit na sino man ay may karapatang pagsalitaan siya ng ganyan except her family dahil sila lang talaga ang nakakakilala sa kanya ng lubusan.Since Gr.4 idol ko na siya pero hanngang ngayon di ko pa rin talaga siya lubusang kilala.Oo lahat ng video na tungkol sa buhay niya lovelife niya napanood ko na.Anong problema mo kung maganda siya e,totoo naman aminin mo na lang insecure ka sa kanya.No one on us have the right ro judge her and her family.

  2. TO MS. KRIS AQUINO: Mahiya ka naman magsabi na maganda ka dahil punong puno ka ng pagkukunwari! You are nothing but a fake. I agree with the other comments about you that no one wants to be in a relationship with you! Your attitude is not only a BRAT, but PAKITANG TAO PA!

    I remember clearly that Chiz Escudero was your first co host with KRISTV. You were hoping that one day magkakatuluyan kayo. Wow! in your dreams. I knew it from the start that Chiz E. won’t be attracted to you. #1 Your fake attitude #2 You are not beautiful inside and out #3 You are a TROUBLEMAKER! You file lawsuits against your exes. Who wants to be with you?

    I clearly remembered at KRISTV by Kris Aquino saying that “Tingnan nalang natin, huwag pangunahan” pertaining to CHIZ. He did not fall for you instead he got a good person inside and out by that name of HEART.

    You may have all the money, all the endorsements, all the attention, but one thing for sure NOBODY LIKES YOU DAHIL OF YOUR ATTITUDE! You are not only a BRAT, BUT TAKLESA TOO!

    Kawawa ka naman KRIS AQUINO – araw araw pasaring mo sa National TV na GANDANG GANDA KA SA SARILI MO- PERO WALA NAMANG NANLILIGAW SA YO!

    My greatest advise is: LOOK INTO THE MIRROR AND CHANGE YOUR WHOLE ATTITUDE. As the saying goes, you cannot teach old dog new tricks! There is no hope that you will change your attitude!


    You may

  3. YES Magazine should feature women who are beautiful INSIDE & OUT. But KRIS A. is not beautiful inside! She has the worst attitude in the whole showbiz industry.

    Her attitude towards her exes – NAKAKASUKA! She files lawsuits left and right against them. Depriving her exes of her 2 boys. Parang walang kinikilalang tatay ang mga anak niya because she does not allow them to.

    Pinoy is the most trustworthy president after her Mom.
    Our economy got better and people around the world invested and trusted the Philippines because of his track record.All the best to our dear President!Never mind your detractors.
    Kris is also the prettiest and smartest in her gown!!!
    I like her candid ways as she is honest and frank besides having a lot of brain.

  5. Mag-isip ka ng tama. Hindi kasalan ni Kris and her family na marami ang nagugutom, why can’t they help themselves at iasa sa mga Aguino ang kabuhayan nila? Tama pinaghirapan ni Kris ang pera niya hoy, mag-isip-isip ka. Sino ba ang mga nangungurakot noon noon pa na naglugmok sa atin sa kanser ng kahirapan dahil sa corruption, sino? Aguino’s nga nagta -try hard gumapang para maibalik demokgrasya at matinong pamamalakad, kinakaladkad niyo pa sa maling mga sinasabi ninyo, hoy magi naman kayong matalinong mga Pilipino. Super grrrraaa kayo…mga walang kuwentang pa-ingay sa matinong mga umiisp para sa karamihan!

  6. Billionaire Kris is the best dressed, wow how about that.
    She gives 3 million peso hummers away as gifts to her friend Boy Abunda.

    She won best dressed, amazing.

  7. NAKAKAHIYA KA KRIS AQUINO! Kung wala kang make up, mukha kang INTSIK SA ESCOLTA! You are not the most beautiful dahil to be beautiful is good inside and out. Lahat iyan PANG LABAS MO LANG like MASCARA! You don’t have a good attitude. When you say hashtag KBROSAS – Gandang walang nakinabang sa iyo! Natural, dahil you file lawsuits against your exes, you badmouth your exes, SO WHO WANTS TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU?? nobody wants to. Your attitude is the worst.

    Yes magazine should only feature beautiful women who are beautiful inside and out. NOT KRIS AQUINO. Lahat ang pinapakita niya KAPLASTIKAN!

    One last thing, when Kris Aquino donates something, she wants the whole world to know. It is televised all over. That is not HUMILITY. You are not blessed by the lord because you are not humble.

    Kahit lahat ng simbahan binibisita mo pa araw araw. Your attitude is the worst. This is the reason why nobody wants to be in a relationship with you. Kahit maganda ka pa, (only with make up on), your heart is EVIL. NO WAY that someone will be attracted to you.

    Nakakahiya kayong mga Aquino. Maraming Filipino ang “one day one eat” , hindi makapasok sa eskuela, walang pambili ng gamut, walang pambahay na biktima ng yolanda typhoon, at nagtitiis sa sobrang kahirapan – kayo ang lakas pa ng loob ninyo magpasikat sa likud nga kahirapan ng ating kababayan. Mahiya na man kayo Kris. Dapat ikaw ang ehemplo na simple lang pero dignified naman.

    • Hindi kasalan ni kris na pinanganak syang mayaman bago pa naging presidente c pinoy ay mayaman na sila helow! at ang pagbabago ay nagsisimula sa ating mga sarili mismo hindi sa ibang tao.. napaka kitid naman nang utak niyo!

    • bakit sila nakakahiya, hanggang sa mga panahong ito, sila parin ang pinakamatinong lider ng pilipinas. wala silang record ng pagnanakaw at kurapsyon. kung wala ba tayong isasaing, sila ang may kasalanan? ikaw ang mahiya sa sarili mo, kung anu man ang meron si kris, pinaghirapan nya yun. kailaman hindi nagdamot si kris, lahat halos ng kalamidad nanduon sya para tumulong ikaw, may nagawa kana ba sa pilipinas? kung wala, wala kang karapatang magsalita. magsikap tayo sa buhay natin at ng guminhawa din tayo. magbago na tayo, malapit ng magunaw ang mundo.

      Aba… Hiyang hiya naman sa iyo si Kris! Dapat pala pinadadamitan ni Kris ang lahat ng mahirap na pilipino! Dapat pala yung pagtratrabaho ni kris ng halos walang pahinga eh inilalaan lang sa inyo. Hiyang hiya naman sya sa inyo! Lagi na lang kayong umaasa sa tulong ng iba! Mag trabaho kaya kayo at ng me ma i ambag naman kayo sa bayan. Di yang puro sahod lang ang alam ninyo!

      People are poor because they are lazy and it is their ondoing, having a lot of children whom they cannot feed nor take care.
      We must always say, what can I do to make our country better and not think of what the country can do for you.
      Stop blaming others , look at yourself first . It is important to be positive and not to be envious of the rich-they have worked hard for it, their parents and forefathers have worked hard for it.

    •, wow! Wag maging Judgemental. Grabi ka naman po, wag mo isisi sa mga AQUINO ang lahat ng nangyayari dito sa ating bansa dahil wala naman silang ginagawang mali sa atin o di kaya sayo. Kung naghihirap man ang iba kasalanan na nila yon, madaming pwedeng gawin para umunlad ang pamumuhay ng mga tinutukoy mo na naghihirap. At sabi mo nga ONE DAY ONE EAT, bakit di ba nila kayang maghanap buhay para sa kanilang sarili? at kailangan mong isisi sa Administration ni PNOY, ikaw ba naisip mo na may naitulong kana rin ba dito sa ating bansa? Kung ang issue mo is ung ATTIRE ni Ms. Kris FYI po pinaghirapan naman po niya un at alam naman po nating mayaman na po sila ever since na pumasok Si Pres. PNOY sa Pulitika. The question is, kung ikaw ba ang President ng ating bansa sa tingin mo ba uunlad ito?
