The recently concluded Primetime Emmys not only gathered the brightest Hollywood stars on TV but it showcased Filipino creations on the red carpet and on stage as well.


Two Pinoy fashion designers have dressed yet again big winners and nominees at the 2013 Emmy Awards held Sunday in Los Angeles, “TV Patrol” reported on Monday.

Cebu native Monique Lhuillier made Julia Louis-Dreyfus (best comedy actress for “Veep”) shine like a disco ball with her sequined strapless gown. Anna Faris also wore a Luillier gown, in yellow.

Famed Pinoy couturier Oliver Tolentino dressed two nominees at this year’s Emmys. They were Mayim Bialik (best comedy supporting actress nominee for “Big Bang Theory”) in an emerald green dress, Allison Holker (best choreography nominee for “Dancing With The Stars”) in a dark olive green mermaid gown.

“Masarap ang pakiramdam… It took us like almost three to four months of preparation for the Emmys,” Tolentino said in an interview with ABS-CBN Hollywood correspondent Yong Chavez.

“He’s amazing, his attention to the detail… He’s got an incredible flexible personality. It’s been wonderful,” Bialik said of Tolentino.

Tolentino has dressed up the likes of “American Idol” alumna Carrie Underwood and Fil-Mexican Jessica Sanchez, singer Fergie, actresses Emmy Rossum, Olivia Munn, Anna Paquin, among many others.

Lhuillier’s high-profile clients include singer P!nk and actress Reese Witherspoon. Her recent works include the black wedding gown of singer Avril Lavigne. (Manila Bulletin)
