    High society’s well-dressed crowd gathered for the annual event, “Tingting’s List: The Elegant Filipinas 2017,” held recently at the Diamond Hotel. The glamorous Tingting Cojuangco and the gorgeous Consul Gen. Fortune Ledesma spearheaded the event, which was also a celebration of “Autistic Possibilities,” art pieces by individuals with special needs.

    Tingting, known for her refined taste and sense of style, shares her views by saying: “Elegance is not overdoing an appearance. It’s an understatement. It’s the body language that carries a dress worn gracefully, regal not shabby. The mouth and words must be a modulated voice and no swearing and unkind words. Sit with legs together, stand with one leg in front of the other, and walk with shoulders back. It’s better to have less than too much. Don’t be a hodgepodge and combine things even if it doesn’t go together or to indicate ‘look at me, I have the latest.’ Elegance can be 20-year-old clothes worn today with aplomb and confidence. The women I choose have clothes for their age.”

    This year, Tingting’s List of 10 women achievers in their chosen fields are Mitzi Borromeo, Lulu Tan Gan, Audrey Tan Zubiri, Rissa Mananquil Trillo, Ana Marie de Ocampo, Joanna Francisco, Tweetie de Leon Gonzalez, Janina DizonHoscha, Love Marie Ongpauco Escudero, and Anna Rufino.

    The board of judges were Fortune Ledesma, Diamond Hotel general manager Vanessa Suatengco, Albert Andrada, former Miss Universe fashion designer, and Arnel Papa. After the presentation of the Leaf of Elegance trophy, designed by Arnel Papa, the entertainment commenced. Emcee of the night RJ Ledesma introduced singer Samantha Kaspar, while a fellow “special” gifted artist, Vico Cham, spontaneously painted on stage. Dynamic couture designer Albert Andrada presented a captivating collection, a return to opulence, with shimmering embellishments executed in timeless designs.

    The Center for Possibilities Foundation, Inc. CFP with executive director and founder, Dolores Cheng promotes a society that recognizes the dignity, potential, and value of persons with “special needs.” This community’s goal is to hone them to become the best people they can be and to transform them from disabled to enabled.
