This year's ABS-CBN Ball took place last Saturday, and nothing less was expected of Kathryn Bernardo, who stunned in a hot pink Swarovski crystal-encrusted Filipiniana gown designed by Michael Cinco!
Kathryn shared further details about her gown and the design process in an Instagram post. According to the actress, she visited Michael’s atelier in Dubai where she was asked to try on several dresses to determine the best cut, color, and silhouette for her, eventually choosing between red or pink. "I fell in love with everything [to be honest], but in the end we were torn between red or pink," says Kath. She even shared photos of herself trying on the different couture gowns from Michael's atelier.
Kath also said that she requested T’nalak prints on her dress as seen on the front pattern of her gown, while Michael added his signature touch by tracing the patterns with Swarovski crystals. "I originally requested to incorporate T’nalak prints to make the look very Filipino, and he did so without compromising the signature Michael Cinco aesthetic by mimicking the patterns using Swarovski crystals," she captions her post.
It's a fitting look for a box office queen, indeed!
