After celebrating its 15th anniversary last month, Cosmo’s sister publication, Preview Magazine marked another milestone in the country's fashion calendar this month. They held the much anticipated annual event called the Preview Best Dressed Ball last July 3 at Tim Yap’s newest hip club called RepubliQ in Resorts World.
As a tribute to the late Alexander McQueen, one of the most iconic fashion designers the world has known, the night’s theme was “Long Live McQueen!” Ladies and even gents took a break from the usual formal attire and opted to go in flamboyant clothes.

The place was filled with well-known fashion personalities, celebrities, designers, and media guests, who all came to honor the 10 women who made it to this year's Best Dressed List. Among the Best Dressed ladies who attended the party were dermatologist Aivee Aguilar-Teo, Striker Mobile Media’s chief operating officer Ann Jacobe, photographer Garovs Garovillo, philanthropist Kaye Tinga, Giordano Philippines’ product development manager Lloyda Lim, model and designer Marita Fe Ganse, fashion blogger and designer Rosanna Aranaz, and actress Gretchen Barretto. Fashion blogger Ingrid Holm and shoe designer Ivy Kirzhner are also part of the list, but they were both unable to attend that night.
The party started with StyleBible.ph Managing Editor Isha Andaya officially launching StyleBible.ph’s new and improved look. Preview Editor-in-Chief Pauline Suaco- Juan then gave her opening speech, in which she talked about the night’s theme, the Best Dressed Ladies, and the love for fashion, of course. The Best Dressed Ladies were later introduced to the fashionable crowd and a toast was made. After the short program, everyone partied the rest of the night away, as they enjoyed free-flowing drinks and the hip-hop mixes the DJ played.
