Cory Aquino, The Yellow Dress
"Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'round the old oak tree, it's been three long years...", so goes the song.
This was the welcome song of the late Senator Benigno Aquino, Jr. upon his return to the Philippine in 1983. Unfortunately, the farthest he had stepped on Philippine soil was on the tarmac until he was toppled by a lone assassin.
Now, our history has led us to the 11th President of the Philippines, Corazon Aquino. She was remembered as the bespectacled woman in her trademark yellow dress. In her presidency, she was mostly clad in yellow dress. The yellow dress served as her iconic dress, her iconic style. The Yellow Dress is synonymous with Cory Aquino.
