Renowned fashion designer Francis Libiran admits to feeling “glad, honored, and grateful” that Maine Mendoza, together with StyLIZed Studios, Inc., wore one of the dresses from his Spring/Summer 2015 Collection yesterday during the ‘Sa Tamang Panahon’ concert.
Francis made an official statement about the said gown through his Instagram account earlier today, October 25.
He emphasized that the dress has not been worn at any other event by another celebrity, except for actress Kim Chiu who wore it as a model during the Metrowear Icon Francis Libiran fashion show.
Despite AlDub’s phenomenal success, after the concert, rumours about Maine’s one gown resurfaces in the social media. Justine Joshua Salcedo Saraza posted in Facebook the photo of Maine and actress Kim Chiu wearing the same pink outfit.
According to news report, Kapamilya actress Kim Chiu on Sunday appealed for sobriety after some netizens noticed that Maine Mendoza, aka Yaya Dub, wore on Saturday’s “Tamang Panahon” concert a pink gown already worn by the Kapamilya star years back.
Chiu, who was bombarded by hate messages, asked everyone not to tweet negative comments, but instead spread good vibes to everyone.
“No hate please? A gown is just a gown. It’s how you make people happy. I think that’s more important,” she said.
Meanwhile, Comedian and “Eat Bulaga” co-host Allan K also commented on the issue.
He indicated netizens should accept that “a gown is just a gown.”
