Just like how their show has made a striking start in its first two episodes, stars of the new weekend series Parasite Island made a splendid entrance at the ABS-CBN Ball 2019. Along with the many Kapamilya celebrities who attended the said event, their presence meant support for the Bantay Edukasyon program of the Bantay Bata 163 foundation, which is the chosen beneficiary of this year’s ball.
Thus, for that cause and in celebration of the Kapamilya network’s 65th years of service, these Parasite Island stars were all glammed up as they arrived on the said occasion.
The ladies of the show displayed elegance as they flaunted their own interpretations of the ball’s theme that is modern Filipiniana. Kaori Oinuma, who plays as Lia, shimmered in her glittery lilac gown with linings that completed her sweet, youthful look. Bianca Manalo, who plays as Melba, is regal on her rosy red backless gown. She is the epitome of a fierce Filipina as she perfectly modeled her Filipiniana, which has a plain butterfly sleeve on one shoulder, and an elaborate rose formed details on the other flowing down her trail. Charlie Dizon, who plays as Princess, exuded grace and beauty in her fully beaded, nude and gold flower designed Filipiniana. Finally, Ria Atayde, completely modest on her “custom piña abaca long dress with bustle that is filled with signature hand embroidered sampaguita”, according to the Instagram post of her Filipiniana’s designer Gabbie Sarenas.
Of course, the boys of the show did not fail to stun us on their dapper looks. Lead actor Rafael Rosell, who plays Jessie, went gorgeously cultural on his look. His black fully buttoned black polo tucked in on his black pants highlighted not only his gold and cream striped belt, it also made him even more dashing on his green, blue-green and violet colored, striped ethnic-designed unbuttoned coat. Fino Herrera, who portrays TJ, wore a black suit and pants topped with a red, one-buttoned barong coat. Lastly, Paolo Angeles who takes on Miggy, came in a fully embroidered cream colored barong.
Indeed, the stylish get-ups that these stars wore made heads turn on the #ABSCBNBall2019 Red Carpet. Like how they got us dazed with their astonishing looks, they surely will grip us on how things will unfold in the island of El Cuerpo. Watch Parasite Island, Sundays after Rated K.
