Figueras humbled by Robin Padilla’s praises of his costumes in Noli



by Boy Villasanta


At the gala premiere showing of “Noli Me Tangere, The Opera” Friday night at the Main Theater (Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo) of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), celebrities rushed in including couple Robin Padilla and Mariel Rodriguez, filmmaker Emmanuel de la Cruz, entertainment writer Alwyn Ignacio etc.


Young fashion designer Erick Valeña was also around to watch again the show as he was one of the staff of the costume department which ace haute couture Albert Figueras headed.


When Erick saw Robin at the lobby of CCP, he sought a selfie photo with the action star who obliging posed with him quickly. Valeña introduced himself to Padilla who in turn shook hands with him, nodded and afterwards took a shot of them both (with his camera).


 Figueras followed suit and introduced himself to the celebrity guest. Valeña introduced Figueras to the actor telling Padilla that it was Figureas who designed the costume.


“Oh! Pinag-uusapan lang namin ni Mariel habang nanonood kami ang laki, kulay at dami ng costumes. Grabe (Mariel and I were just talking while we were watching the grandeur of the costumes. Wow!),” praised the so-called former Bad Boy of Philippines Movies.


“Ibang klase ka (You’re different). Nice meeting you,” exclaimed Robin.


It was indeed a pleasant and wonderful viewing experience for Padilla who is mainly exposed to the plastic arts such as television, film and social media.


“Nakaka-touch naman. Isang Robin Padilla ang nagkagusto sa costumes ko (I’m touched. Imagine, a Robin Padilla liked my costumes). I am flattered,” said Figueras.
