All roads definitely led to Makati Shangri-La as hundreds of Kapamilya stars converged at the biggest and brightest celebrity gathering this year – the ABS-CBN Ball 2018.
The set design of the red carpet was striking -- an expansive red wall resembling a hedge that was made up of thousands of Ecuadorian roses conceptualized by international entrepreneur and events stylist Robert Blancaflor, who's tapped to be in-charge for this glamorous affair.
Although this spectacle has more attendees this year, we really don’t mind how long the red carpet parade took since it’s one of the annual prestigious events when we see our favorite celebrities at their most glamorous and best.
According to ABS-CBN News' correspondent MJ Felipe, approximately 300 out of more than 600 guests paraded on the red carpet showcasing their best and most ostentatious looks. Most of them sashayed solo, while there were some who came with an arm candy or in groups.
The staging of this glitzy charity event is definitely one for the books as most of the attendees defied the traditional black and white motif and showed up in their chosen hues. But apparently, majority of them opted for the color blue. Some other trends, among the women, were fringes and embroideries on their frocks and hairstyles that splitted on the middle, while velvet blazers for the men.
ABS-CBN Ball 2018 is for the benefit of Bantay Bata Children's Village 163 relaunching. The blue ribbons worn by the attendees signify their support for the advocacy of the institution and for the battle against child abuse.
