Miles Ocampo’s ABS-CBN Ball look: Inspiration or imitation?


Netizens asked whether Miles Ocampo’s ABS-CBN Ball 2019 look was an inspiration or an imitation of an Alexander McQueen pantsuit. 

The Ball last September 14, 2019 gathered the Kapamilya network’s biggest stars and executives for a night of glitz and glamour. 

Throughout the years, fans have been looking forward to their idols’ look for the event. 

Miles donned a pantsuit with rose-inspired long sleeves and lace details. Her look was created by Filipino designer Marc Rancy.

The actress said in an Instagram post that the look was meant to represent the rose as a standard of beauty.

A netizen noticed a strong similarity between Marc Rancy’s work and a tuxedo jacket with matching trousers from Alexander McQueen’s Autumn/Winter 2019 collection

Sarah Burton, the creative director of Alexander McQueen, created the collection inspired by English roses.

Although Miles’ outfit was embellished with lace and a wide flat collar, the resemblance with Burton’s runway piece is uncanny, netizens pointed out.
