She’s got that pretty face and infectious smile that almost everyone seems to be curious about—and at the recently concluded Star Magic Ball 2016, the actress proved that she can kill it on the red carpet, too.

Dressed in a white ball gown by Francis Libiran, Elisse sauntered on the red carpet looking like royalty. Below, we talk to her stylist, Patty Yap, about how she prepared and got dolled up for the occasion.

“I wanted something effortlessly chic and sleek for Elisse. She’s very pretty, so it should be the focal point of her look. I wanted her to carry the dress, and not the other way around. I wanted her to shine on that red carpet.”

“I wanted a ball gown for her but nothing too sweet or princess-y. I wanted something sexy but still age-appropriate. We went for a clean, off-white gown that complements her skin color very well. Something young, fresh, and simple!”

 “I discussed it with her makeup artist and her hairstylist, and I told them that ‘effortless’ is the look we’re going for. For makeup, just something light and barely there; and for hair, just something sleek yet simple.”

“We also went for minimal accessories. I just had her wear a pair of earrings and a thin bracelet from Tessera Jewelry.”

“Elisse has a petite frame, so I told Francis Libiran that I don’t want her to drown from all the fabric. And in fairness to him, he was able to execute it beautifully! It was perfect for Elisse.”

“The goal was to showcase her beauty, so we opted for something simple but sleek. I wanted her to become one of the best dressed stars of the evening.”
