Don’t worry, she had her reasons.
Champagne, carpet glamour, and a star-studded guestlist are anticipated pillars of every gala affair. Yet, one element is often overlooked—the theme. Whether it’s the Met Gala 2023 or the Barbie Movie Pink Carpet, the theme will make-or-break the night. After all, it will be tomorrow’s talk of the town.
Speaking of the most significant evenings in the fashion scene, the Vogue Philippines Anniversary Gala is finally here. Last night, the theme is ‘Rewear/ Rework,’ which celebrates creativity and sustainability. That said, celebrities and content creators like Bretman Rock, Liza Soberano, and Nadine Lustre re-wore ensembles that had a story to tell. If you’re feeling FOMO, you’re not all alone—Rei Germar donned a beige-y dress for the black and white formal. But before you say anything, she had her reasons that make her one of the best-dressed personalities. After all, the content creator understood the assignment.

Rei Germar has always been a showstopper, and at the Vogue Philippines Anniversary Gala, she selected an architectural ensemble that looked stunning from all angles. The beauty, fashion, and lifestyle content creator arrived at the black carpet in an archival couture piece from Rajo Laurel. The beautiful beige dress was then paired with a clutch crafted by Cebuano designer Neil Felipp.
The real question is: why was Rei Germar wearing a beige-y dress if the theme was black and white?
The Truth is…

Here’s the thing: the Rajo Laurel archival piece is already in its twenties—imagine, it’s nearly the same age as Rei Germar. When asked about the infamous dress, Rei told us that the dress was originally ivory and had transformed into this beautiful beige over time. “I was five years old when this dress was created. I know the theme is black and white, but this dress started as an ivory color. It’s just that it’s an archive piece— it changed into this beautiful beige color,” she says.
In conclusion, Rei Germar grasped the importance of ‘Rewear/Rework.’ And regardless of the color she chooses to wear, we can all agree that the content creator effortlessly serves every single outfit.
