It’s that time of the year again when the brightest stars of ABS-CBN converge and show-off their glamorous sides in the country’s most talked about celebrity formal event. This is the night when they don elegant and fabulous pieces specially crafted by their chosen designers.
While onlookers anticipate what our gorgeous female celebrities are going to wear, we certainly also look forward to how the gentlemen will pull off their most handsome look by wearing the finest formal haberdashery.
Just like Gerald Anderson who has been consistently attending since the Star Magic Ball’s inception in 2007 and apparently wearing the same ensemble through the years – finely-tailored classic suit, accentuated with bowtie and black leather shoes.
In the first four years, his constant arm candy was his recurring loveteam and former flame Kim Chiu. Together, they bagged the Couple of the Night in 2009, alongside KC Concepcion and Piolo Pascual.
As he traded the traditional blazer with a velvety one and opted for a polka-dotted bowtie, he took home the Best Dressed Male Award in 2010.
Although the versatile actor had to walk down the red carpet alone in 2011 and 2012, it didn’t let his luster fade because he’s still able to catch everyone’s attention with his dashing aura. Despite wearing the same silhouette, he remained good looking in rocking a pompadour 'do in 2011 and looked a tad hotter in a Gucci suit in 2012.
In the next two years, he didn't go dateless as he took fellow ASAP regular and ex-girlfriend Maja Salvador. Sporting a Tom Ford classic tuxedo, he took home the Best Dressed Male Star in 2013, while his 2014 velvety Dolce and Gabanna blazer gave a different vibe on the classic men's formal wear.
The 29-year-old actor, who was then wearing a creation of his stylist Joey Espiritu, brought the cutest date in the eighth staging of the Star Magic Ball -- his adorable niece Lyra.
Deviating from the traditional black suit, he went for a white blazer, black trousers and black bowtie in 2016. Making him look princely was his rumored girlfriend and “How To Be Yours” leading lady Bea Alonzo who was his arm candy.
They once again graced the star-studded party last year, with Gerald wearing again a Joey Espiritu number and Bea dazzling in a white Monique Lhuilier gown. From sticking to his squeaky clean look in the previous editions, he went for a rugged facade by choosing not to shave his stubble.
How will Gerald charm us again with his irrepressible debonair look this year? Find out in this year’s edition of the glitzy affair soon.
