LizQuen is definitely one of the most enchanting showbiz love teams. With their great talent in acting, gorgeous looks and bewitching chemistry, who would not swoon over their pairing? But how did their tandem actually start?
Enrique Gil had already been landing lead roles with other partners before he was paired with Liza Soberano, who began with bit roles on TV dramas. But when Liza got her first big break as a third wheel in the 2013 Kathryn Bernardo-Daniel Padilla starrer Must Be…Love, she made “eye contact” in an ending scene with Enrique, who had a cameo appearance in the film. The rest was history.
In 2014, their first teleserye as a love team, Forevermore, had become a phenomenal hit locally and internationally. Shortly before its premiere, they started to attend the Star Magic Ball together in a matching black ensemble. While Liza donned a black V-lined, fishtail tube gown, Enrique then matched her wearing a black and white tux, with its suit jacket fully printed with roses.
Public fascination for their team-up continued in two films that were released the next year—“Just The Way You Are” and “Everyday I Love You”—after the Forevermore finale. And, as the hype peaked, they marched into the Star Magic Ball with much fanfare. Liza wore a fully embroidered, blush pink ball gown while Enrique donned a white tux which still had rose imprints on its suit jacket.
Their third walk as each other’s date to the ball in 2016 was as stunning. Now starring in their second teleserye Dolce Amore, LizQuen was again scene-stealers at the glitzy affair. Liza donned a boat neck, ash gown which was fully beaded and embroidered. Meanwhile, Enrique’s black and white suit had a silver, glittering embellishment on his bowtie, which perfectly matched Liza’s gown.
In last year’s ball, LizQuen fascinated us with their elegance. The ever-gorgeous Liza perfectly pulled off a black embellished illusion gown, embroidered with tarot cards imagery. Beside her was Enrique, who charmed us with his classic black and white tux.
This year, as LizQuen finished yet another successful series, Bagani, their appearance hand-in-hand in this year’s ABS-CBN Ball, is truly much anticipated. How will the deserving embodiment of “Lakas” and “Ganda” astonish us once more?
