(Inside Manila) More than the recognition given in this year's FAMAS awards, the event also became a runway as local celebrities arrived in stylish couture designed by known names in the fashion industry.

However, one gown did not make it. Its the said gown made by award-winning Filipino designer John Herrera supposedly for Kapamilya actress, Kim Chui, who hosted the event along with Piolo Pascual and Robi Domingo.

In an Instagram post, Herrera posted a series of photos featuring a black strapless gown with high-slit and an intricate design. The design is topped with sequins. There's also a large textured white fabric attached by its waist giving it volume, contrast, and Hollywood-ish vibe.

"The Dress," Herrera simply wrote.

Netizens are all in awe of the gown and applauded the designer.

According to a report by PEP, there's a miscommunication between Herrera and the FAMAS organizers who were the ones who contacted the designer to make outfits for the three hosts.

Herrera is planning to sell the gown that is worth P100, 000.

Kim and Herrera had already smoothed things out since the incident.
