#PerfectCongViynation: Top Ten Picks by Nice Print Photo

#1:  Viy’s Gown

Viy Cortez’s wedding gown, designed by Leo Almodal, is a stunning masterpiece that epitomizes luxury and elegance. The gown features a full-sleeve, ball gown silhouette adorned with over a million Swarovski crystals,  weighing approximately 25 kilograms. It includes a grand 4-meter monarch train, adding to its regal appearance. The gown’s sweetheart neckline extends to delicate off-shoulder straps, and the entire creation is valued at around PHP 2.5 million (approximately USD 45,000)​.

The creation process took over three months and involved more than 30 artisans to bring Viy’s vision to life. She was inspired by the baroque Rococo style and specifically wanted a fully crystallized ball gown​ (ViyLine News)​. The ensemble was completed with customized YSL heels, 10-carat diamond stud earrings from Manila Diamond Studio, and a hair and makeup look that perfectly complemented the dress​.

This gown not only showcases the intricate craftsmanship of Leo Almodal but also reflects Viy Cortez’s personal style and vision for her special day.
