You read it - it's called the BLACK BOOK launch. And because of that event and the gloomy weather outside, I am feeling pitch black all over now. Welcome to the dark side!

It was raining hard last Tuesday (May 24), and I was running late to attend an event at The Republiq. Without Geo wanting to tag along, and me feeling sluggish under the weather, I convinced myself, oo na nga, to go and personally see the collaboration photos we did with Doc Marlon Pecjo and two upcoming GMA-7 talents. Baka sampalin kasi ako ni Doc pag di ako nagpakita! :-)

As you can see, the BLACK BOOK event was an exbihit that showcased Kapuso actors and actresses in stylish moments caught by Doc Marlon's camera. Different celebrities (photos of them below), different stylists (we saw Mickey See doing the makeup & Buern Rodriguez for hair, fellow stylists Teej Nepomuceno, Sidney Yap, Patrick Galang, Carlos Concepcion, Matt Gozun, etc.). We're thankful to Doc for inviting us to put some fashionable touch on two of his subjects.

Since I mentioned I am feeling black nga, here are the photos I took (exhibit pictures, celebrity pictures and some people I caught during the event) that I rendered in black and white (sorry for the poor quality, unwanted reflections, and incorrect angles of the few). Take note though, that some of the photos shot by Doc were actually in colors.

HEY CUTIE! Doesn't he look like a younger, fresher John Lloyd Cruz? I styled this picture, with clothes coming from my closet (necklace was Geo's though), hehe!
LITTLE PRINCESS. Jillian Ward was sooo adorable! She requested if she could take the little crown that Geo placed on her head during the shoot. Well, she did!
SINNER VS. SAINT. Love these photos of Jackie Rice!
ROCCO LOCO. Rocco Nacino in sartorial style.
BOOTYLICIOUS. Rhian Ramos shows her curves as a pop diva kuno. Is that Tado with her?
URBAN MACHETE. Hunky Aljur Albrenica looking clean and stark while fully clothed.
SMIZE! Carla Avellana gets greasy and dirty.
BEAUTY QUEEN. Iza Calzado is a daring Athenian goddess.
AMERICAN FLAG. Dion Ignacio reveals his stars and stripes.
BIKER CHICK. Isabel Oli is sexy either front or back.
WATCHALOOKINAT! Look straight in Mark Herras' eyes.
TOUGH GROUND. Kris Bernal in bondage.
FOURPLAY. A multitude of prints in Hippie-boho vibe.
SOLITARY MOMENT. Solenn Heusaff gets catty.
OHHHH BOY! The who? I would buy jeans from this guy anytime!
GREAT WALL. A plethora of Kapuso stars!
KRIS KROSS. I chanced upon Kris Bernal and she was nice enough to pose side by side her picture.
STAND BY ME. Dion Ignacio towers over his alter-ego.
BLACKOUT. Fellow collaborator Mickey See with John Pagaduan - both in monochrome.
DANCING MOOD. Lovely model Valerie Weigmann is all smile.
REAL MEN. Nice to bump on FHM big boss Allan Madrilejos with a pinstriped-suited friend.
OFF SHOULDER. Towering model Ann Casas in a cute alphabet-printed top.
PEOPLE WATCH. They came and they partied.

CHIKA CHIKA. I believe he is a Kapuso guy (on the right) and his name tag says Gino.
MAN OF THE MOMENT. We heart Doc Marlon Pecjo!
