5 Best Hollywood Moments in Barong

Let's make the barong cool again.
Comments

It’s probably the most comfortable formalwear these celebrities have ever worn.

It’s not everyday you see a foreign celebrity in Filipino national costume. Whether it’s a visitor showing his appreciation for our culture or a Fil-Am proudly representing his roots, it’s always a pretty damn cool sight.

 

Quentin Tarantino

Who can forget the time Tarantino rode a pedicab through the flooded streets of Manila and had to show up at Malacañang wearing jogging pants? He obviously liked his barong, since he wore it again when he announced the 65th Golden Globe Award nominees for Best Drama. 



Jeremy Renner

Only Jeremy Renner can get away with pairing a barong with cargo pants, and he pulls it off pretty well.

This Fil-Am clearly loves the barong. He’s worn it on several occasions, including a 2012 performance at the Hollywood Bowl. Our favorite has got to be the bowler hat-and-boombox-necklace combo.



 



Dave Bautista

Back in 2007, Pinoy wrestling fans were tickled to see Batista wearing a barong during an episode of WWE Smackdown.


 

Obama and Trudeau

While former President Obama and Prime Minister Trudeau aren’t Hollywood celebrities, with their popularity they might as well be. At the 2015 APEC Summit, they looked just as dapper in barong as they do in their usual suits.
