We can’t help but notice Kadenang Ginto star Andrea Brillantes on the red carpet. After all, in a sea of neutrals and dark colors, she was only one of the few who wore a bright-colored Filipiniana.
"We actually collaborated with Michael Leyva and did two looks for Andrea. One is a traditional terno sleeves in color yellow inspired by the sunrays of the Philippine flag, and the other is a fresh and lighter gown which is what she wore on the red carpet," said her stylist Eldzs Mejia to ABS-CBN Lifestyle.

She was seen on the red carpet rocking a coral terno ballgown, alongside her date, Seth Fedelin. "Aside from it being the color of the year, I think coral complemented her morena skin, and it highlighted her modern Filipina beauty. We did asymmetrical, one-shoulder butterfly sleeves for a younger and edgier take. But the fabric has dot embellishments that also represented the “Pearl of the Orient," he explained.

"Hairstylist RJ Dela Cruz accessorized her hair with strips of customized pearl pins and crystals to further highlight the pearl inspiration. This was to match her glowing morena skin and signature feathered eyebrows by makeup artist Marben Talanay," Eldz added.
Like her character Marga, Andrea speaks her mind and knows what exactly what she wants. "Andrea was very hands on, as she constantly shows me inspiration for her headpiece, accessories, silhouettes. And I think it was a great mix of all our ideas," said Eldzs.
