ABS-CBN Ball season has come upon us yet again, friends. And, as always, watching the country's brightest stars sashay down the red carpet in their best evening finery is a total spectator sport! For 2019, an extra element is set to make the festivities even more interesting: This year's theme is Modern Filipiniana, and we absolutely cannot wait to see how celebs and their favored local designers are going to proudly interpret our national dress.
We've got particularly sharp eyes focused on Anne Curtis, who was very recently spotted hanging out with the top trio of Dubai-based Filipino masters Ezra Santos, Michael Cinco, and Furne One Amato, all of whom are known for their individual flair for no-holds-barred opulence.
"With THE Impalpable, Amato, Couture Madames of Dubai! Three proudly pinoy designers Ezra, Michael, and Furne, whom I have been given the honor to wear their creations throughout my career," Anne excitedly wrote in her Instagram snap caption. "So happy to finally hangout and just make chika. Had the [loveliest] time. Thank you for last night!!! See you in Manila my loves!"
In 2018, for her grand return to the glittering annual event after a decade-long hiatus, Anne appeared in a custom black Monique Lhuillier gown—an ebony version of a beribboned ivory bridal frock from Monique's Spring 2019 collection.
We're positively giddy at the prospect of her wearing one of the UAE triumvirate's extravagant designs to the big night! So will she? And which of the three will she select? Or...could she possibly somehow manage to don outfits by all of them? The only real way to find out is to catch our coverage of the 2019 ABS-CBN Ball this September 14th at Shangri-la The Fort.
