MANILA, Philippines – Actor Paolo Ballesteros, known both here and abroad for his makeup transformations, has added another title to his collection: fashion designer.
On Tuesday, September 11, the Eat Bulaga host shared on Instagram a terno he designed for Mutya ng Pilipinas 2018 candidate Agatha Romero. He said he's been designing outfits for beauty pageants for a while now, albeit in secret.
"I have designed gowns and filipinianas for pageants before, pero secret lang hehe. Ngayon hindi na secret goodluck later [Agatha Romero] and thank you den to my designer friends [Ian Paul Semira] and [Jian Lasala], [Manny Halasan] who helped execute this for tonight’s Mutya ng Pilipinas 2018 terno competition."
