Senator Nancy Binay is a favorite topic of netizens each year the president holds a State of the Nation Address (SONA).
Her SONA outfits often draw mixed reactions—from negative comments to funny memes.
Remember when she "matched the carpet" during SONA 2018 with her light blue Randy Ortiz Filipiniana? Or the time she was bashed for her controversial Terno made by the same designer house before the SONA of the late former President Noynoy Aquino in 2013?
But this time, it seems the 47-year-old legislator has left a positive impression on netizens.
On Monday, July 26, 2021, Senator Nancy was present during the opening of the third regular session of the 18th Congress.
Clad in white sandals, she paired a simple black barong-inspired blouse with white pinstriped trousers, the entire ensemble adorned by black rope-like belt with tassels.
Her make-up was barely there, her ombre-colored hair straightened with a mid-part.
Senator Nancy posted some photos from the senate floor on her official Twitter account.
Netizens, amazed by the senator's OOTD, described it as "pandemic glow up."
A Twitter user wrote, "ang fresh mo dito tita nancy. parang class president lang nung high school"
Another one commented, "Madam ang ganda ng aura and outfit nyo."
Others would love to know who did her hairstyle.
A netizen wrote on Twitter, "Bongga ng hair mo dyan mumsh."
A Twitter user also compared her style evolution from her earlier years.
Of course, netizens also got creative with their memes.
This one wanted Senator Nancy to do a "collab with Beyonce and Adele."
There were also some who even made a mock art card of Senator Nancy endorsing a popular conditioner brand because of her silky, smooth, and straight hair.
After receiving so many reactions from her SONA 2021 look, Senator Nancy tweeted, "Uso today ang long [emoji]"
In an interview with CNN Philippines, Sen. Nancy said she is not keen on running for a higher position in 2022.
In the Philippines, politicians are allowed to serve as senators for two consecutive terms.
She is now on her second consecutive term after winning the 2013 and 2016 elections.
