The Star Magic, home of ABS-CBN’s talented artists like Piolo Pascual, Bea Alonzo, John Lloyd Cruz and Daniel Padilla among others, held its annual Star Magic Ball last Saturday at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel.
A little drizzle didn’t dampen the artists from arriving in style. Dressed in haute couture gowns designed by famous local artists, the Star Magic talents either came with their significant others and or went solo (maybe to avoid controversy?)
Some of the Best Dressed couples were Bea Alonzo and boyfriend Zanjoe Marudo. Bea was in a chick White tuxedo-like dress, accentuated by a black bow tie.
Teen royalty couple Daniel Padilla was in white tuxedo while Katryn was stunning in a Michael Cinco number. Also in a Michael Cinco gown was the ever-lovely Liza Soberano, who amid the recent controversy her on-screen partner has been involved with, still chose to arrive hand in hand with Enrique Gil.
Real life couple Kim Jones and Jericho Rosales were an example of ‘less is more’ as they complemented each other with a black and white ensemble.
Maricar Reyes and Richard Poon were sophisticated as she wore a simple Vania Romoff stunner and a simple black tux for Poon.
One of the highlights of the said ball was Star Magic’s tribute to ABS CBN President Charo Santos-Concio.
However, noticeably missing during Saturday night’s festivities are Sarah Geronimo and Matteo Guidicelli, though both are not Star Magic talents, they usually receive invitations since they appear exclusively for the Kapamilya network. According to sources, the couple were in Cebu due to the passing away of Matteo’s grandfather.
Also missing were Luis Manzano and Angel Locsin, Jessy Mendiola and JM De Guzman, Richard Gomez and Lucy Torres-Gomez, KC Concepcion (who opted to remain in Paris after ASAP’s London show) and Gretchen Barretto.
