And the cameras go click, click, click, flash...

Portrait photographer extraordinaire Rupert Jacinto released the current book from his "FAAABVLOUS" series. The book gathers photos from Rupert's different subjects, creating classy and elegant images that range from formal to fantasy. His photos are able to capture one's true nature, bringing out the diverse character and personality of each subject through captured image. On the cover of this year's book are two fabulous ladies in their own right. Consul Helen Ong looked effortlessly classy in red, while Cris Albert was stunning as she channeled old hollywood in her little black dress and pearl jewelries.
Styled by Junjun Ablaza, blown up photos of Rupert's works were displayed all-over the gallery of the Manila Peninsula.

After walking through the exhibit, guests were asked to proceed to the ballroom for the dinner. As guests indulged in the food, host for the night and author of the book Mayenne Carmona spoke about the Fifteen FAAABVLOUS Men and Women. Each were introduced through a video presentation, awarding each personality with a trophy on stage after.
Congratulations to Rupert and Tina Jacinto for a wonderful evening and we await next year for the release of the fourth "FAAABVLOUS" book!!
