SONA Fashion: Senator Nancy Binay does not look like a Pokemon
Her follow-up statement to last year's meme-tastic outfit is quite tasteful
(SPOT.ph) It looks like Senator Nancy Binay heeded the call of Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Emeritus Oscar Cruz and kept things simple for this year's SONA. Well, as simple as possible anyway. Our public servants have been consistently under fire for turning the State of the Nation Address into a glitzy red carpet affair and the church leader noted that, "Magaganda ang suot nila, maraming perlas sa leeg, mga porselas na ginto. Pagkatapos, yung mga taong umaasa sa kanila ay hand-to-mouth existence lang."
In Senator Binay's case, it wasn't so much the pearls and the gold that caught people's attention. Her striking resemblance to several things (Pokemon, Shrek, hot air balloon, et cetera) had people creating meme after meme. This year, as photographed by the Philippine Daily Inquirer, she kept it classy.

The dark blue terno is designed by Randy Ortiz and Senator Binay says she's still prepared for people to hate it. What do you think?
