There Was Something Special About the Filipiniana Senator Imee Marcos Wore to the Inauguration
Yes, we did a double take, too.
As Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos, Jr. finally took his oath as the 17th President of the Philippines, his sister made a statement of her own, with a little help from their father.
For her inauguration outfit, Senator Imee Marcos wore a teal gown that, she stressed, was a “sustainable opulent Filipiniana gown.” She designed the dress herself, and had it made by Rem Divino. But it was her golden left arm that got people talking. It lowkey stole the spotlight.

In case you were wondering what that shiny inlaid part on the senator's left arm was, it's actually an intricate collage of accessories from her father, Ferdinand Marcos, Sr. himself. These include lockets, chains, and pendants that were given to her as gifts. She said that it was a way for her father to "escort" her to her brother's inauguration.
