In an effort to help cancer patients at the Philippine General Hospital, the I Want to Share Foundation hosted a Charity Gala at the Shangri-La The Fort last September 15. Melding fashion and philanthropy, the gala’s program included a fashion show where 25 pediatric patients strutted down the runway in gorgeous designs by Avel Bacudio, Mark Bumgarner, Martin Bautista, Rajo Laurel and Andrea Tetangco.
Similarly, celebrity guests who supported the cause were also dressed in chic, fashion-forward ensembles that caught our eye. Scroll through our favorite celebrity looks from the event below!
The Best Dressed Celebrities at the I Want to Share Foundation Charity Gala 2023
1. Barbie Imperial
Styled by Steph Aparici, Barbie Imperial was clad in an asymmetrical black dress with a sultry thigh-high slit. The piece by Bella Borromeo was punctuated with a white clutch by Hermes and diamond jewelry by Bagful of Glitter.
2. Bea Alonzo
Bea Alonzo dazzled in a brilliant gold number that barely grazed the floor as she sashayed into the ballroom. So as not to overwhelm the dramatic piece, she styled minimally with gold studs and matching heels.
3. Rhian Ramos
While many guests opted for gold and black outfits, Rhian Ramos stood out in a metallic silver gown. Adding even more glam to the avant-garde number were Rhian’s bedazzled clutch and black strappy stilettos.
4. Max Collins
Max Collins kept things classy in a long-sleeved black dress adorned with sequins and bows. The backless frock, which was designed by fellow attendee Chris Nick, was just as stylish as her Yves Saint Laurent bag and Givenchy heels.
5. Bianca Umali
Preview's 2023 Best Dressed honoree Bianca Umali was a vision in white during the party, donning a figure-hugging gown with a beaded train. Simple but chic!
6. Ysabel Ortega
Also wearing white was Ysabel Ortega, who looked effortlessly elegant as she graced the event. Taking a sophisticated route, Ysabel’s stylist Cath Sobrevega complemented the timeless frock with silver hoop earrings and a simple clutch.
7. Kyline Alcantara
Unlike many of the guests, Kyline Alcantara opted to incorporate a fun pop of color into her outfit. With a unique silhouette resembling an anthurium flower, her striped green dress was the perfect companion to her floral-inspired earrings.
