Audrey Hepburn, Princess Diana, Cher, and Cruella. These are just some famous personalities and characters that Vice Ganda has copied on “Everybody, Sing!” to bring more joy to viewers of the game show that can be seen on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, Kapamilya Online Live, and iWantTFC.

Behind Vice Ganda’s glamorous costumes and looks is Aron Mangsat, who has been styling the box office star for nine years now. According to Aron, Vice wanted to have a different take on her looks for the community singing game show.

“She [Vice Ganda] wanted a new take on hosting eh. We’ve done GGV for almost nine years and gusto niya mag-veer away from the typical suit and pants,” he said.

To create Vice’s different costumes on “Everybody, Sing!,” Aron revealed that they carefully plan the costumes to give justice to the icon that they will copy.

“Working with Vice is always a collaboration. To give you an overview, we both make a list tapos pagbabanggain namin. Mostly inspired ng popular icons and we give it ng twist. In terms of production, as much as possible, a week or two,” shared Aron, who is also the stylist of other Kapamilya stars like Inigo Pascual, Kyle Echarri, Tony Labrusca, Aljon Mendoza, and Ronnie Alonte.

For him, the most memorable transformation of Vice on the show so far is the Audrey Hepburn look since it’s the first time a host is holding a bag on camera. Vice’s Princess Diana look was also notable for Aron.

Aron said he is glad that viewers are entertained with the costumes he styled for Vice that are always making waves on social media.

“Happy and nakaka-pressure dahil need sundan ang bawat looks eh. Dapat mas elevated from week to week. Stay tuned lang sila every week kasi marami pang naka-bangko na episodes na for sure maaaliw sila,” he explained.

Vice Ganda’s costumes are much-anticipated as it also play an important role in the game show. The questions for the songbahayan or viewers during the “Vice Sing Ganda” segment are based on the characters she is copying.
