Drew Barrymore falls in love with two pairs of earrings not knowing they were made by one designer: Ken Samudio.


If some photos of Drew Barrymore appeared on your social media feeds, you won't miss her huge floral earrings.

Did you know they were first worn by GMA-7 host Lyn Ching-Pascual?

The Unang Hirit host had the chance to interview the Hollywood actress shortly before the premiere of Netflix's Santa Clarita Diet at SM Megamall last night, March 12.

Throughout the interview, Drew couldn't take her eyes off Lyn's white earrings.

Being a big fan of the actress, the host didn't think twice giving them to her.

The Fleur, the earrings' name, were made by renowned Filipino designer Ken Samudio for his luxury accessory line called Matthew and Melka.

Lyn has been his client since he launched his business in 2011.

In a short chat via Instagram, Ken revealed the inspiration behind his floral accessories.

He wrote, "I have a degree in Biology, and I have always been inspired by nature.

"So naturally, when I made the 360-degree shift in my career, I gravitated towards nature and what better way to represent it than by flowers."

Now if you want to own a pair, Ken said, "The Fleur earrings retail internationally at $225 [or around PHP11,500] and was previously available in Bergdorf Goodman and Moda Operandi.

"Now it is available in luxury boutiques worldwide."

But we might see another pair of Ken's earrings on Drew anytime soon.

The designer revealed that the 43-year-old star also got a pair of his Seahorse earrings, which Drew saw on ABS-CBN's entertainment correspondent Marie Lozano.

Ken said, "Lyn Ching gave the flower earrings to Drew Barrymore because she liked them so much.

"When Marie Lozano interviewed Drew, Marie was wearing my seahorse earrings which I also designed.

"Drew liked it so much that Marie took it off, and gave it too Drew, too, not knowing that it both came from one designer. Me."

A big fan of the actress, Ken was ecstatic to see her wear his creations.

He told PEP.ph, "Drew is my all-time favorite actress ever since ET. She has this infectious, childlike demeanor that not even aging can change.

"I heard she is the real deal too so I was over the moon to see her wearing my stuff and actually loving it!

"It was crazy, and I loved every minute of it!"
