The most sparkling and awe-inspiring night of the Kapamilya Network is coming as the much-awaited, ABS-CBN Ball nears, which has viewers and fans excitedly looking forward to seeing their favorite stars donned in their finest ball gowns and suits.
One of the most exciting parts of the yearly ball—if not the most—is watching the stars parade their chosen looks on the red carpet. With that being said, choosing the perfect outfit and overall look is of the essence. As Miuccia Prada, head designer of one of the most iconic fashion brands in the world, quotes: What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today, when human contacts are so quick. Fashion is instant language—those few minutes walking down the red carpet could be everything in terms of presenting one’s character and showcasing their individuality and charisma.
Kapamilya royalty, Kathryn Bernardo, who just had a huge success with her film “The Hows of Us”, shares the creation of her dress for the event and expresses her expectations and excitement for the first-ever ABS-CBN Ball, which will now be for a cause. The highly-anticipated event—themed as “Share the Love”—aims to set in motion an advocacy for Filipino children as it will help pave the way for the re-launching of Bantay Bata 163’s Children’s Village. The actress also jokes how her on and off-screen partner, Daniel Padilla, hasn’t asked her to the ball yet but would probably be her date as they had been attending the event arm in arm for the past 5 years.
The genius behind her look, designer Jun Escario, describes the creative inspiration of her look as clean and sleek with a 70’s vibe. He notes that he wants the young star to have a Gucci-esque look, referencing Tom Ford’s 1996 Fall collection show and it’s glamourous and elegant designs.
