It's that time of the year again! The ABS-CBN Ball is when we ogle over the biggest local stars, guess who's bringing who as their date, and, admittedly, *pretend* to be the fiercest fashion critics. While last year's ball was truly a memorable one, we just can't wait for what's in store this year, especially with the interesting twist in their dress code.
So if you were planning to get your ball scoop via Instagram Stories updates from the celebs and their glam team (yup, stalker lang ang peg!), we've got you covered! Here's what to expect from the 2019 ABS-CBN Ball and where you can *actually* watch the live coverage!
The 2019 ABS-CBN Ball, which will be held on Saturday, September 14, will be having two special programs that'll be broadcast on TV and online: The pre-show and red carpet coverage. The one-hour pre-show will be hosted by Robi Domingo and Karylle, and, according to ABS-CBN, "will delve into the behind-the-scenes and details of the ball; a retrospect of ABS-CBN's 65 years; a primer on the ball's advocacy, Bantay Bata 163's Bantay Edukasyon Program; a tribute to the champion of life and love that was Gina Lopez; and a glance at the food and entertainment that will be served once the doors to the ball close."
The red carpet coverage, on the other hand, will be hosted by Gretchen Ho, Raymond Gutierrez, Gretchen Fullido, Sarah Meier, Bianca Gonzalez, and Boy Abunda. Expect guests from the fashion industry to make appearances in the red carpet special to talk about this year's modern Filipiniana dress code.
