It is that time of the year again when the country’s brightest stars gather together for the industry’s biggest event of the year! While fans are treated with seeing their idols dressed to the nines, this is also a treat for the celebrities. Amidst all their busy schedules, even for just one night, they have a chance to bond with friends and family. So, how are their preparations going for ABS-CBN Ball 2019?
Enrique Gil revealed that his suit will be a “classic but edgy” combination between a barong tagalog and a formal tuxedo. You can also expect that he will be attending with girlfriend Liza Soberano. “Siyempre, automatic ‘yun,” he stated, although he has yet to formally invite her. Jake Cuenca will also be walking the red carpet with his special lady Kylie Verzosa. As for his look, the Los Bastardos leading man worked with an old friend, Francis Libiran. “To reconnect and collaborate with him again, for me it’s inspiring,” he explained. After all, the famous designer has been responsible for his many suits through the years.
On the other hand, Seth Fedelin was more focused on planning his proposal for Andrea Brillantes. The Kadenang Ginto actor invited her to eat with some friends and decided to pop the question then, “Wala siyang kaalam-alam na surprise pala ‘yun.” It was already assumed that the two will appear together, but he still wanted to make the gesture, “Ako naman, gusto ko lang na alukin isya.”
Andre Brouillette and Yves Flores both enlisted the help of designer Nat Manilag. Their outfits will be inspired by the Philippine military uniform. “We’ll make sure na maiiba ‘yung itsura,” Manilag added. Yves, however, is planning to go stag. “Kasi ‘pag may date ka, hindi mo siya maiwan,” he explained. Instead, he plans on enjoying the party with his friends. Meanwhile, the former PBB Otso housemate will be beside his girlfriend Lou Yanong.
One thing all these actors have in common is the feeling of excitement. “Dati napapanood ko lang sa TV, tapos pinapangarap ko rin maglakad sa red carpet noon, tapos ngayon may invitation na ako,” Seth shared. Andre is honored to be part of the annual event this year and plans to make the best memories, “I want to go out there, stylin’ and meet a bunch of people.”
Enrique is looking forward to having fun with his Star Magic and ABS-CBN family. For Jake, this is night also serves as the anniversary for the boys of Los Bastardos. He could not help but remember how their cast first assembled during last year’s ball.
What are you most excited to catch at the ABS-CBN Ball 2019?
The 2019 ABS-CBN Ball is part of ABS-CBN’s celebration of 65 years of serving the Filipino. After last year’s affair that helped reopen the Bantay Bata 163 Children’s Village, it continues to support underprivileged children with Bantay Bata 163’s Bantay Edukasyon Scholarship Program as this year’s beneficiary.
