ABS-CBNNews.com reports: "A month after she got a best-dressed nod at the 4th Annual Blossom Ball for her Francis Libiran gown, Banks was seen wearing a beige and black dress by another Filipino designer, Rajo Laurel."
In his blog on StyleBible.ph, Laurel revealed that Banks wore his creation to one of the final episodes of America’s Next Top Model. He wrote: "I just saw Tyra Banks in my gown! I am shaking like a leaf as I type this as this feels like a dream! It’s almost surreal! I mean, I just watch the woman on TV and now she is wearing my work! I am so grateful to my cousin Mike Carandang for pushing me and urging me and making all this happen! I am so very very very very grateful!"
Carandang is an America's Next Top Model executive producer.
