by Xave Gregorio
Presidential granddaughter Isabelle Duterte’s celebrated her 18th birthday at the Peninsula Manila on Thursday (January 19) and went through four outfit changes through the night.
Isabelle was mostly in a sapphire blue crystal-studded Michael Cinco gown, as evidenced by social media posts of friends and suppliers to the debut.
For one of her outfit changes, she slipped into an all white Orias Studios ensemble for a dance number, as seen in the Instagram story of designer Jeff Galang.
Galang also posted Isabelle’s rose pink custom La Tercera robe, which the debutante wore while she got prepared for her debut.
For her after party, Isabelle changed into a lacy white gown by designer Joe San Antonio.
She also sported blue and white heels by bridal shoe designer Jefferson Si.
Isabelle did not get to her debut without controversy. Her pre-debut photoshoot at the Malacañang Palace previously drew flak from netizens.
