What’s a party without the perfect dress?

On the day of the ball itself, Duterte stunned everyone while wearing the creation seen in this photo as she posed with several guests. The ball was held on Friday at the Peninsula Manila in Makati.

A solo shot of the debutante was taken by the Rita Neri Events Planners, which helped the presidential daughter’s party a reality.


A video uploaded by professional makeup artist Winn Ramos showed how Duterte sparkled in her gown as she made her entrance. Ramos also tended to her beauty needs as he made sure she was the belle of the ball.

Before the big day, Duterte previously had her pre-debut photoshoot at the Malacañang Palace, which drew a storm of criticism. Her high-tech invitation and pre-debut video shoot, where some shots were taken in Australia, also aroused controversy. /ra
