There are many reasons why every Kapamilya is watching out for this year’s ABS-CBN Ball, happening on September 29. For starters, it’s a Ball with a cause which many artists have showed enthusiasm for. Another is the unique looks that each celebrity will be strutting along the red carpet with. And, of course, who is going with who!
One actress, however, who has attended every year without a date is Shaina Magdayao. And we are not surprised. When you are as stunning as her, who needs a man to walk down the red carpet with? Instead, you can have the moment, the spotlight, and all the attention to yourself.
In this exclusive interview, she revealed that Michael Leyva will be the designer behind her gown. “Easy to work with,” is how she described their partnership which is why she has been with the same style and glam team ever since.
Her stylist Cath Sobrevega talked about how they have opted for black and white in the previous years. Fans would remember that in the 2016 Star Magic Ball, Shaina was a vision in her black gown which had a plunging neckline and a slit that proudly showed off her long legs. The following year, she was statuesque in her black and silver number which had an almost futuristic vibe.
This year, they are gearing up for bolder and louder. “We’d usually do like plain silhouettes or plain textures, so I think we’re going on a different route this time,” Sobrevega shared.
“I don’t know what to expect,” is how Shaina feels about this year’s Ball. But she does hope that this would be a perfect chance to spend quality time and talk with her friends in the industry. When asked about who her date would be, you already know the answer. “Every year naman wala,” she said with a bright smile.
