The second annual ABS-CBN ball—formerly known as the Star Magic Ball—is happening tomorrow night, September 14, 2019, at the Shangri-La The Fort Hotel. The theme for this year's ball is "Modern Filipiniana"—a welcome change from the previous years.
Last year's ball had no theme, which allowed stars, stylists, and designers to be as fun, daring, and creative as possible with their ~lewks~.
Here are the best red carpet fashion moments from last year that literally made our jaws drop:
Sue Ramirez gave us serious '20s flapper vibes in this burgundy Mak Tumang gown.Continue reading below ↓
Nadine Lustre and James Reid
JaDine made their ABS-CBN ball debut last year, and they definitely didn't disappoint in the fashion department. Nadine Lustre sizzled in a black sparkly Garimon Roferos creation, while James Reid amped up his detailed tux from Michael Cinco with a leather harness.
Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil
Liza Soberano made our jaws drop when she sported the cutest bangs for the occasion, and gave us summer in September vibes in vintage Alexander McQueen. Enrique Gil kept things interesting with his Balmain suit, with his disheveled hair, leather pants, and gold chains.Continue reading below ↓

Kim Chiu and Xian Lim
Kim Chiu looked like the belle of the ball in this black Michael Cinco ball gown with dreamy butterfly details. Her outfit did all the talking, so she kept things simple with pearl drop earrings and a super sleek chignon. Xian Lim veered away from the classic black tux and opted for an embroidered blue Francis Libiran suit, which complemented Kim's outfit really well. Needless to say, Kim and Xian looked like a power couple in their matching outfits.
Anne Curtis stunned in a simple custom-made black Monique Lhuillier gown that was a welcome change from the heavily-embellished gowns of her co-stars, but it was Anne's starry headpiece by Jennifer Behr that got people talking.Continue reading below ↓
