Leni Robredo was proclaimed by Comelec as the 16th Vice President of the Philippines last May 30, 2016. Her OOTD caught a lot of attention simply because she didn’t wear yellow. For her proclamation, she wore a simple black, white and beige shift dress.
When asked why she wasn’t wearing her party colors, Leni said that she only has two yellow office clothes. “Nagkataon lang dadalawa lang ang damit kong dilaw. Maraming-marami akong shirt na dilaw pero ‘yung damit na pwedeng i-opisina, dalawa lang,” she said in a press conference.
We believe that the choice of colors was brilliant. As the duly elected Vice President of the Philippines, she should be loyal to the Filipino people and not just to the 14 million that voted her into office. It is just right that she shows neutrality now that she’s been proclaimed as the second highest leader of the land.
Good luck, VP Leni Robredo! Make us proud!
