Bae in barong: Alden Richards’ look at Mega ball disappoints fans
Oh, how fans can be so fickle—loving you one minute, and poking fun at you the next, especially when it comes to fashion.
Just as legions of fans express overwhelming support for the “Pambansang Bae” Alden Richards, these fans also don’t mince words when voicing out their opinion, whenever there’s something they don’t like about their idol. The Bae’s fans clearly expressed their disappointment over Richards’ outfit at a recent magazine event.
Last June 12, stars gathered once again for a night of glamor at the Mega Millennial Ball. It was another evening of supreme style as celebrities once again set the standard for fashion. When it comes to events like this, fans expectedly score the best and worst dressed. Richards, because of his outfit, received flak from displeased fans.
In a recent Instagram post by GMA Artist Center, the usually adored Richards suddenly endured wave after wave of bashings due to his look at the ball.
Dressed in a closed-neck modern-day barong–style top, the Kapuso actor was called out for not looking his best at the event.
Disappointed fans expressed their take on his outfit. Some likened his attire to that of a priest.
Others said he looked like a government official, if not an aide of one.
Some said his barong-style top resembled a generic office uniform, while others commented it was so old-fashioned he only lacked a hat and a bolo.
A number of fans blamed his stylist for the way he looked at the ball.
While most fans had their attention on his look, a few others noticed that his love team partner Maine Mendoza was not present at the ball.
There have been talks that his phenomenal team-up with Mendoza is now suffering a downturn, following the sudden conclusion of their first primetime TV series, “Destined To Be Yours”. However, their fan empire still remains supportive of television’s first split-screen love team. JB
