Since she started in show business in 2004 though winning Star Circle Teen Quest Season 2, we’ve witnessed how Erich Gonzales has bloomed from being a young charming lass from Davao City to becoming a stellar actress and scene-stealer bombshell. And she’s not only able to showcase in her teleserye and movie appearances, but in her untainted attendance in the Star Magic Ball as well.
And as we look forward on seeing her again in this year’s ABS-CBN Ball, let us look back first on her mesmerizing evolution on the red carpet of the Star Magic Ball in this feature!
She’s already been a household name and one of the most in-demand teen stars by the time the annual star-studded gathering was launched in 2007. Thus, many were so excited to see her get all dolled up. And the 18-year-old stunner then didn’t fail as she really charm us with her dainty look in an immaculately white ruffled number and her long silky hair down.
Sporting a white mermaid silk gown and wavy locks, her appearance that year gave us major prom feels as she paraded the red carpet with her Ligaw na Bulaklak loveteam partner Matteo Guidicelli.
It seemed that a goddess fell down from the heavens as she graced the event in a Martin Bautista creation – a white and black Grecian ensemble with vivid draping, accentuated with a thick gold-studded black belt. Although her side-swept curls added youthful vibe to her look, her red lips turned her a tad fiercer.
Erich got edgier in 2010 as she rocked the red carpet in a black multi-layered, ruffled ball gown created by Nat Manilag. She got her hair neatly tied up, exposing her exquisite shoulders and collarbones.
Sticking to that year’s motif, she appeared on the event like a real princess as she sashayed in a beaded red ball gown by Ezra Santos. She finished off her look by wearing light makeup and headband braid with some strands of her hair touching her face.
Dressed in the glittery, lacy black number intricately sewn by Francis Libiran, the beautiful and talented actress wowed everyone with her fresh yet daring look in the fifth staging of Star Magic Ball.
Shining, shimmering, and splendid might be cliché, but these are the adjectives that first come to our minds every time we lay our eyes on this photo of her showcasing her fully-beaded off-shoulder white ensemble by Ezra Santos that featured a low back and sweeping train. Her hair was also elegantly tied up, giving us a look of her sexy back.
Arguably, many jaws dropped and all eyes were glued on her when she walked down the red carpet in her lovely silver peekaboo frock by Leo Almodal. She complemented it by having her hair and makeup reminiscent of Old Hollywood glamour, which was the theme that year.
From her sexy outfit in the previous year, we saw a totally different Erich as she looked so delicate in the simple nude dress crafted by Francis Libiran. In an interview with PUSH.com.ph days before the ball, she imparted that it was her personal request to make it not revealing.
Her elegant and timeless look made her appear like she was straight out of a fairytale as her off-shoulder white ball gown made by Pepsi Herrera unbelievably turned her into a real princess that night. She accented her look by wearing silver and diamond jewelries and sparkling silver clutch bag.
And in the last year of Star Magic Ball, she once again stunned us when she sizzled in the embellished and feathery beige halter gown designed by Jun Escario that showed off her sexiness. She paired it up with a shimmering clutch bag that had the same color as her frock and dangling diamond earrings. She also had her hair stylishly tied up to further display her enthralling splendor.
Will Erich Gonzales continue her no-absent streak for this year’s ABS-CBN Ball? That’s for us to see on September 30!
Apart from being a star-studded night of glitz and glamour, the upcoming ABS-CBN Ball 2023 will also put the spotlight on the stories of thanksgiving, togetherness, and hope shared by Kapamilya artists, employees, partners, and collaborators, who all share the vision of delivering stories that promote human good to our dear audiences. Moreover, it will also aim to raise funds for the benefit of the ABS-CBN Foundation.
