Best in Metallic

Bea Alonzo in Tom Ford

Bea Alonzo is a consistent Best Dressed contender, and she did not disappoint this year either. Opting for a metallic Tom Ford that showed enough skin on the side, her look was sexy, fun, and elegant at the same time. She balanced out the sparkles with soft beach waves, a nude satin lip, and a velvet choker as a beautiful show of restraint.

Elisse Joson in Francis Libiran

The young actress looked graceful in this white ball gown with origami folds. We love the lack of jewelry, because with a dress like that, you don't need to overaccessorize. 

Best in High Slit

Mica Javier in Charina Sarte

When Mica Javier walked down the red carpet with Jay R, it was most definitely her shining moment. (It even reminded us of the first time Kim Jones attended the ball in a deep green Jun Escario dress.) She showed confidence and elegance, almost as if she's been doing red carpet appearances for years.

Best in Ball Gown

Jodi Sta. Maria in Mark Bumgarner

A big, beaded, and structured ball gown tends to go over the top. But paired with simple and sleek mid-parted hair accompanied by minimal accessories, Jodi Sta. Maria dazzled the crowd in an extravagant Mark Bumgarner creation.

Best in Slip Dress

Maja Salvador in Chanel

Maja's walk on the red carpet may be fleeting, but we'll definitely remember this Chanel number on her. The silhouette worked beautifully on the actress, with the fabric as buttery as silk gliding on the carpet and the back of the dress delicately tied and falling right by the base of her back.

Best in Old Hollywood Glam

Arci Munoz in Francis Libiran

Arci channeled a bit of Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe combined with this criss-cross off-shoulder Francis Libiran. She even matched her statuesque silhouette with a dangerously sizzling smokey eye.

Best in Sequined

Julia Barretto in Michael Cinco

Julia Barretto knew the perils of this intricately beaded Michael Cinco stunner. Her choice of hair and makeup made this look stand out from the sea of frou-frou ball gowns and messy updos. The overall effect is young, quite sexy, and even a little rebellious.


Best in Peek-a-boo

Maricar Reyes-Poon in Ivar Aseron

Another woman who knows how to keep it simple, classy, and yet never boring. This dress, paired with a gold linked choker, fit Maricar like a gloveand the trick to showing skin in inconspicuous areas is exactly just that. 

Best in Structured Dress

Mari Jasmine

We'll admit we were happy to see the mismatched earring trend on the carpet, and pulled off perfectly by Star Magic Ball newcomer Mari Jasmine. Talk about minimal, this look is intelligent, poised, and the fashion girl's version of "simple."

Best Deviant of the Night

Liza Soberano

To say that this fully beaded Michael Cinco frock is breathtaking would be an understatement. With Liza's haphazardly cut bangs, it was a youthful take on a classic silhouette. And with that smoldering look, we're not even surprised she took home the Best Dressed Female award.

Best in Bows

Jolina Magdangal in Mark Bumgarner

Jolina Magdangal wrapped herself in this elegant Mark Bumgarner frock that was topped with a beautifully structured bow. Her red hair, tied in a sleek low ponytail, created a perfect contrast to her black dress. 

Best in Princess Silhouette

Erich Gonzales in Pepsi Herrera

Erich wanted to be a princess for Star Magic Ball and so she did. Choosing to go for understated diamond studs and a necklace that sat right by her collar, her red carpet look was clean, regal, and timeless.
