Red Charity Gala 2017

Minimalism on the runway, opulence on the red carpet

Joey Samson’s “PilgrimAge” collection for Red Charity Gala (RCG) 2017 may have had a strong monastic theme, but there was nothing austere or even ascetic with the looks seen on the red carpet at the annual gala, held Saturday at the grand ballroom of Shangri-La at the Fort.

The most attended yet, according to co-chairs Tessa Valdes and Kaye Tiñga, patrons and guests of the ninth RCG upped the glam factor, with slinky dresses that showed off bods to kill for. And we’re not referring only to the beauty queens; some of the older ladies that night could give ingenues a run for their money.


But don’t take our word for it. Check out the photos.
