At the inauguration of Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. as the 17th President of the Philippines, staunch supporter Toni Gonzaga-Soriano was given the honor to kickstart the event by singing the Philippine national anthem.
But the netizens did not just notice Toni's impressive performance of "Lupang Hinirang," but also her Philippine terno.
On June 30, 2022, the Instagram post of Stylized Studio, Liz Uy's design studio, described Toni as, "ethereal in custom @markbumgarnr [emoji]"
Mark Bumgarner's Instagram Stories put out photos from the fitting sessions of the former Pinoy Big Brother host.
Aside from the perfect draping, the sparkly sampaguita brooch made the simple gown a showstopper.
Mark also revealed the inspiration behind the gown: A sketch of former first lady Imelda Romualdez Marcos, the mother of the newly elected president.
International luxury brand Jewelmer made the Kapamilya actress' dangling pearl earrings adorned with five flowers.
Meanwhile, the 38-year-old vlogger got her striking diamond from Mei Diamond Jewelry.
Toni's swept back side-parted hairstyle was done by celebrity hairstylist Jaymar Lahaylahay, while her make-up was done by Effie Iñigo.
