In case you missed it, Daniel Padilla just had his first virtual concert, Apollo: A Daniel Padilla Digital Experience, last Sunday, October 11, 2020—and needless to say, the singer and actor lit up the stage with his brilliant performance! His fans were certainly impressed, including his number one cheerleader a.k.a. his on- and off-screen partner Kathryn Bernardo.
Turns out, Daniel’s proud girlfriend even threw him a surprise party—which Kath managed to pull off in just three days of planning, mind you! Our #KathNiel hearts couldn’t handle the aww-worthy moments that were captured in the photographs shot by Magic Liwanag. Below, check out the five details we absolutely loved about this intimate surprise party.
1. The sweetest caption ever
Kathryn posted a bunch of photos from the party on Instagram accompanied by the most kilig-inducing caption. She wrote, "Our intimate surprise party last night with @supremo_dp’s biggest fandom—our family and friends—was a success! Congratulations, love! THAT WAS SUCH AN AMAZING PERFORMANCE! (No bias!)"
2. The setup
Just look at this gorgeous setup by famed events stylist Gideon Hermosa! He transformed the place into a galactic starlit paradise. We especially adore how he styled the table setting—even the plates are in line with the whole celestial theme. Stunning!
3. The statement cake
The cake made by Chef Castillo Fuentes is also literally out of this world! The galaxy-themed two-layer cake even has Daniel’s face on it that boasts of a modern-retro vibe. So, so cool.
4. The power couple
Of course, we also need to talk about the couple’s outfits! Daniel, as always, looked dapper in his textured light brown suit with a round-neck black T-shirt underneath, which he finished off with a pair of ‘50s-style saddle oxfords. Meanwhile, Kathryn channeled an edgier version of the ‘00s Paris Hilton in her metallic silver mini slip dress layered with a black leather jacket but kept things comfy by opting for rugged white sneakers. Definitely the best-dressed rockstar couple in our books!
5. The priceless moments
Photos don’t lie—Daniel’s surprised face says it all! Congratulations on your successful digital concert, Daniel... and kudos to Kath for managing to pull off this one heck of a surprise!
