Leni Robredo was spotted sporting an Imelda Marcos-inspired terno when she attended the fundraising gala of the Filipino-American Symphony Orchestra in the US.
However, no one noticed Robredo’s poor attempt to copy Imelda Marcos style until Mike Acebedo Lopez, a grand nephew of the former first lady called the attention of the public on Facebook and read:
She took Imelda’s son’s post, now she wants to be her. ‘Single white female’ much?
You can try, and you can try your darnedest best, but you can never, ever come close to my grandaunt Imelda. She is sui generis. You are just amoeba.
She is an advocate of the good, true, and beautiful.
You are bad, a liar, and budlat ugly.
Pahuway ngara oi. Imong eye bags atimana. Ang laki na, baka sunod pati eye bags mo may tatak LV na. LOL. (Quit it. Take care of your eyebags. It’s getting bigger, perhaps your eye bags will have the trademark of LV after this.
Cath Salcedo agrees with Mike: “Wala siyang Binatbat kay First Lady kahit mga foreign artist pa.A LEGENDARY FASHION ICON Imelda Romualdez Marcos.”
Henry Regulacion Jr. also agrees with Mike: “Ang layo nya kay Madam Imelda at hnd niya mpapantayan si Madam. Kahit Reyna at Princessa Inggit na inggit kay Madam Imelda nung panahon niya.”
Paulina Lewis-Lim writes: “UNCOMPARABLE!!!!!UTOT LANG NI IMELDA SI LENI…..”
Francoise Monique remarks: “Was never a Marcos fan, but one thing I cannot deny, your grand aunt was, and still is, ONE CLASSY LADY!!!”
Layla Codilla says: “Baduy baday si lugaw queen!! TH pasossy at di nya keri outfit nya hahaha lousy ang aura nya😁😁😁kahit mumurahin outfit mo nasa nagsusuot lang yan😁😁lugaw!!”
Netizen Phoebe Hyde’s remarks: “Ohhhh my gosh😳😳 how awful to compare her to your aunt imelda. Imelda is an icon. The classiest First Lady in the world. 💐😘”
