(L-R) Heart Evangelista, Lucy Torres, Juliana Gomez, and Jinkee Pacquiao are among the head turners at the State of the Nation Address 2017.


Today, July 24, 2017, at the second State of the Nation Address (SONA) of President Rodrigo Duterte, ethnic chic is the fashion.

Unlike the previous SONA, the politicians and their spouses wear "toned-down" OOTDs, abiding by the this year's dress code: Mindanaoan-inspired outfits.

Who wears the most eye-fetching costume? See below:

Early bird Heart Evangelista was a vision in white during the opening of the second regular session.

She donned a Jo Rubio tea-length terno, a pair of Christian Louboutin heels, and a dainty Ulyana Sergeenko purse.


She later changed into this Boom Sason suit with tribal print.
