Dazzling does not even begin to describe just how start-studded this year’s ABS-CBN Ball would be. As one of the biggest gatherings of celebrities, Kapamilyas everywhere are excited to see all their favorites in one event. There will surely be no shortage of shimmer and glitter. And the best part is that we can be part of some artists’ preparation.
One actress who has ensured the combined brilliance of her stylist and go to designer Francis Libiran is Bela Padilla. “Parang dating dati pa, bata pa ko, binibihisan niya na rin talaga ko,” she retold. There is no other duo she would trust with these big occasions. So, there is no wonder why she feels comfortable to have Libiran working on her look. “Alam na alam niya na ‘yung style ko,” the actress shared.
Last year, we saw Bela in an old Hollywood get up. Her gorgeous black pleated gown perfectly showed off her curves. It was an elegant piece that was made playful by the almost dancing like pattern. She loved this choice by Libiran, and we do too. But this year, she is proud to have wear an outfit that would be more her style. “Bela padilla on a normal day,” is how she described it—herself on a normal day, only all glammed up.
When asked about who her date would be, “Wala I’ll be going alone,” was her answer. Another thing we know from Bela is that she does not have a lot of expectations for this year’s Ball. “I just want to have fun,” she confessed. For her, this would be their chance to catch up and create memories with her friends in the world of show business.
More than having fun, however, Bela is glad that this year will also be for a cause. “Mayroong kapupuntahan ‘yung party and ‘yung celebration,” she said revealing her thoughts on having ABS-CBN Ball 2018 for the benefit of Bantay Bata 163 Children’s Village.
