How Our #MetroMostStylish2019 Ladies Celebrated Valentine’s Day
Depite their busy schedules, our #MetroMostStylish2019 women still took some time off to spend with their family and loved ones. Some received flowers, as per tradition, while some were a little bit creative and went on a cruise, away from the bustle of the city during one of the busiest days of the year. Here’s how they celebrated Valentine’s Day, and some of their special messages for their partners.
February 14 was much bigger for Heart Evangelista-Escudero as she celebrated her birthday as well. Born on the day of hearts, she greeted her birthday with an intimate dinner alongside her loved ones and husband, Chiz Escudero. For a busy power couple, it surely was the perfect reason to take a day off work and spend some time together.
And there was no shortage of sweetness as well, as she shows her table filled with beautiful and heart-shaped cakes!
Grateful, eager, and unafraid. ? This is how I'm entering my 34th year of life. I faced a lot of trials in the past year, but I came out a stronger woman, all thanks to my loving support system, and of course, God, who never failed to be there for me. Now, here I am today, more ready than ever to take on what the world has to offer me. ??? ? To everyone who's been there for me, I thank you dearly. I hope you continue to come along with me in this beautiful journey of life. ??? ? 34, I don't know what wonders you hold for me, but I will pursue it with all my heart. ? I'm looking forward to all that's to come. ??
Bea Alonzo is spending Valentine’s day a bit low-key with boyfriend Gerald Anderson, preferring not to post sweet photos with him. Instead, she posts this photo of a sweet setup aboard a cruise, which matches the Instagram Stories of Gerald.
We can't imagine what the schedules of power couple Bea and Eric Dee Jr. are like, as both are very hands-on with their Sunnies Studios empire. But for Valentine’s Day, Bea takes the time to look back at their journey together and share this very sweet message for her husband:
“Forever and ever and ever with you ?? How do I get to be so lucky to spend literally every minute with you. I love you so much @ericdeejr. My only dream is to make our family even bigger ??”
True to Valentine’s tradition, Gretchen Barretto shares a video of these beautiful red roses she received from her “dada,” Tonyboy Cojuangco.
No flowers, no dates, no gifts—just good ol’ quality time. Simple but sweet, this was the kind of Valentine’s Day for Camille Co and soon-to-be husband Joni Koro. A very wise decision, knowing that Valentine’s Day can leave restaurants and the streets a bit packed!
The best kind of laughs, captured by @treehousestory while we were shooting our love story video ?? Can’t believe it’s been 4 years for us! Still feels like we’ve only been dating for a year, except this time we have nothing planned for Valentine’s Day (which for sure isn’t how new couples do vday). No dates, no flowers, no gifts. Just good old quality time. ?? And maybe Netflix. - Wearing @elizabethhalliedesign gown
Working on Valentine’s Day—or any other day—won’t feel like work when you love what you do! And yesterday, Katrina spent her day on a Valentine’s All-Nighter with fellow DJ Jav/ Vargas, serenading people and reminding them to celebrate all kinds of love every day of the year.
Last night, we played all of the dance floor anthems of the Philippines between the late 90s-early 2000s. A huge departure from our underground repertoire to say the least. Wow, we had stupid fun serving Chicane and waffles for those 6 hours. Thank you for dancing with us??????
Laureen has had the honor of being in the US for New York Fashion Week (NYFW) this Valentine’s week, which meant tons of shows, clothes, and not being beside her boyfriend, Miggy Cruz. Judging from Laureen’s Instagram photos, she’s having the time of her life, being part of Teen Vogue’s article on diversity and street style, and going behind the scenes of NYFW. Nevertheless, she pens this sweet message for her “bbq,” who’s back in Manila waiting for her to come home.
I may not be with you during Valentine’s Day, pero wait ka lang pauwi na ko ?? Kidding aside, everyday with you feels like Valentine’s day anyway because everyday, you always make me feel like I’m the most precious girl in the world. You’re the only person who can make me laugh for 30 minutes straight (with uncontrollable tears) and I love you for always putting a smile on my face. Love you bbq ??
Just finished my last show (wearing @marcjacobs, of course) and I can’t believe #nyfw is done! Will still be posting a lot about my week but taking this time to appreciate New York and its charm. No matter how busy this city is, it’s still incredibly beautiful and magical!?????? ?? by @martsromero
And speaking of work, Joey is also on work-play mode during Valentine’s day for the red carpet of Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel. She even gushes about how she was able to sneak in a question for Samuel Jackson, Nick Fury himself! Although she wasn’t able to spend Valentine’s with her “huney” Angie, she drops this super adorable photo of them to greet her a happy anniversary.
Valentine’s is best spent with family and loved ones—and that’s exactly how Stephanie celebrated it, at home with her husband Jonathan and their two beautiful boys. Jonathan also went the extra mile and brought home a beautiful Riesling for his wino wife. Paired with cheeses and cold cuts, it was a laid-back night, but one to remember.
Couple Mia and Jacques Branellec spent their Valentine’s day in another business-slash-pleasure trip at Sunny Palm Beach in Florida. Right after their vacation at the Bahamas, the couple flew to Palm Beach to open the very first Jewelmer store in the US. What a productive week!
Perhaps one of the sweetest Valentine’s Day messages from our Metro Most Stylish girls came from Sarah Lahbati, who posted on Instagram a poem for her fiancé, Richard Gutierrez. While Valentine’s is always an excuse to be sweet and cheesy, for Sarah, everyday with Richard is Valentine’s Day.
