From her supporting roles in the early years of her career and her breakthrough stint in Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7, to becoming part of one of the most admired loveteams in the country, Elisse Joson, who currently stars in the afternoon soap opera Pira-Pirasong Paraiso, has always been the lovely onscreen sweetheart we adore.
And that translated to her appearances in the annual Star Magic Ball, wherein she didn’t fail to mesmerize us with her entrancing looks on the red carpet.
While it was only in 2016 when she started to become a household name after joining PBB, she actually had her red-carpet debut in 2012 – the same year that her acting career in showbiz took off. Since it was her maiden attendance, she made sure to immediately create a lasting impression by putting on an embroidered, fit-and-flare black halter gown with ruffled skirt.
The elaborate design of her frock, plus its halter style, made a necklace unnecessary anymore, yet she matched it with a chunky bracelet and a pair of drop pearl earrings. Her messy bun updo with side-swept bangs and her ‘barely there’ make-up proved that we don’t need to wear full makeup in order for us to look beautiful.
In the succeeding year, she opted for another black number anew, but that time, a sweetheart strapless one that had decorative shimmering appliques and asymmetrically tiered skirt. She once again put her hair into a chignon, then matched her dress with a mini black clutch bag and silver jewelries.
After wearing black for two consecutive years, Elisse then showed up in a bedazzled white halter gown in 2014. Wearing her hair up allowed her to completely display her beautiful face and show more skin.
She paraded in the Star Magic Ball 2015 in a form-fitting champagne fishtail number. Her heavily-embellished dress had intricate details of floral and stud ornaments in white and gold, evoking a classy aura. She laid her wavy black hair down this time and wore gold accessories to complement her look.
The promising actress then paraded on the red carpet like a true princess in 2016 by wearing a voluminous satin white sweetheart ball gown. She showed off her sexy, flawless back that became a real head-turner because of the exaggerated pretty ribbon placed on the lower part. She completed her regal look with pink lips, a low bun updo, a pair of diamond earrings, and an encrusted clutch bag. Her gown was meant to match her dashing prince McCoy de Leon, who was cladded in a dapper white suit.
And in 2017, she arrived at the Ball wearing a glittering beaded champagne dress with feathery skirt that flaunted her curves and décolletage. Her make-up, along with her hazelnut-colored hair that she adorned with dainty gold hairclips on both sides of her ears, radiated her sweet aura. Seemingly not a fan of necklaces, Elisse just wore a pair of stud earrings and held a sparkling rectangular gold clutch bag. Besides, having her on-and-off-screen sweetheart McCoy de Leon as her escort made them a real eye candy.
Will Elisse continue to enthrall us with that dainty yet stylish look in this year’s edition of ABS-CBN Ball happening on the 30th of September? Well, let’s just all wait and see!
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.
