Kris Aquino in Cary Santiago

KRIS Aquino making heads turn at state reception

Kris Aquino is a stunner in the state luncheon hosted by President Benigno Aquino III at Malacañang for Brunei Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Tuesday.

The deep red ultra-glam long dress (or gown) with criss-cross fabric that traces the body’s contour is by Cary Santiago. The Cebuano designer built his career in the Middle East before returning home to show off his fashion design skills and to develop a big clientele not only in Cebu but also in Manila.

Santiago designed this red body-hugger for the Palace reception and had it flown from Cebu.

Since Kris has resigned from her TV shows, one wonders if she would retreat from the public eye. After having built a show-biz career which has turned her into a national icon, Kris might just focus now solely on her family. She’s now out to meet and fully enjoy the challenges of being a mother to Josh and Bimby.

    uy..bad naman yung iba dito maka comment..mahirap kasi sa atin kung sino na talaga tayo na mag judge ng ibang tao na hindi naman natin kakilala masyado..I think it would not be fair. Kunting tingin lang muna sa sarili ninyo.

    What’s new? No problem with me.

    She’s only exercising her expertise and that is, karangkang.

    Kris is a proof that hundreds of millions of pesos are not guarantee that you have peace of mind, high self-esteem, acceptance, etc. She is very insecure, always seeking attention, immature, power-hungry, abusive, desperate for public acceptance, unstable emotionally, high strung, wicked, fraud. delusional, mentally-troubled, etc.

      May naniniwala bang she will quit showbiz? She was just buying sympathy, Ibig ba sabihin pag hindi sya mag-quit magiging masamang ina sya kasi sabi nya gusto nyang maging good mother kaya sya mag-quit? Tulad ni Pnoy ilang promises na ang di nya tinupad. SHAMELESS di ba? Tatakutin pa si James. Lumalabas tuloy ang totoong pagkatao ng mga Aquino. Kunyari, paragon of virtues pero bulok naman talaga. Akala kasi ng mga Aquino sila ay Diyos sa Pilipinas.

    How come she’s the top tax payer of The Philippines? What happened to the Forbes richest men of the Philippines? It’s obvious BIR is not doing their job!

  • Elnore

    If she runs for any position in the government, I will definitely vote for her. I’d rather have a refreshing face in the Senate or Malacanang, para maiba naman. No to Nancy Binay!
