Georgina Wilson hit two birds with one stone by being chosen to be part of the Most Stylish list this year and landing the cover of MEGA magazine for the April 2013 Big Fashion Issue. Wearing Patrick Galang on the cover, Georgina fit all stylish and fabulous labels given to her.

Host of the night Eri Neeman greeted the crowd and right away introduced One Mega Group’s Founder and CEO Sari Yap. The magazine’s Editor-in-Chief gave everyone a warm welcome and officially opened the first part of the night, the MEGA Most Stylish. The ten chosen women were honored on stage, one by one flaunting their stylish and glam outfits.

It was time to give away fabulous items to the guests and MEGA did so by raffling off a luxurious Max XL watch. The host also asked the crowd to send tweets and photos of their most stylish outfit for the real-time Instagram and Twitter feed happening which was flashed on the LED screens the whole time. Prior to the event, Megastyle.ph had conducted an online contest that could be joined by women, regardless of age, to flaunt their exceptional style. All entries were reviewed and the five best looks were invited to grace the event. The person who stood out among the five took home the new Blackberry Z10 to top off her fashionable look.

In the second part of the eventful evening, One Mega Group’s Group Multi-Platform Publisher and MEGA Magazine’s Deputy Editor Meryll Yan stepped on stage and talked about Multi-Mega, conquering the four media platforms in one night. Meryll transitioned to the primer video of the MEGA Young Designers Competition — All Stars, the return of the country’s pioneering fashion design competition.
