Kim and Boop Yap Dressed Up Kim Chiu for the #9thStarMagicBall The chinita princess was all glammed up.

At last year’s Star Magic Ball, Kim Chiu took her fans by surprise when she veered away from her usual fancy, princess-y frocks. She transformed from sweet to sleek in a black number by Patricia Santos. This year, on the other hand, the actress showed us that it's possible to get the best of both worlds.

Styled by Kim and Boop Yap, she walked down the red carpet in a shoulder and leg baring dress by Pepsi Herrera - embroidered, sexy, and still very much fit for a princess. As the evening came to an end, she bagged home the Couple of the Night award together with her beau, Xian Lim.

"This year, Kim opted to go to her go-to designer Pepsi Herrera to create her gown. We wanted it elegant but also with a hint of sexiness that shows a more mature side of her. That said, we chose a design that is different from what she has already worn in previous balls."

Makeup by Albert Kurniawan; Hair by Jerry Javier

“For the makeup, we went for a glamourous look.  We wanted to keep it fresh while accentuating her beautiful eyes and strong cheekbones. And then, we chose a neutral color for the lips to highlight her glowing skin.”


“As for her hair, Jerry Javier and the team wanted an effortless updo that is youthful and does not take away from her stunning face.”

“We contacted Julius O. Closet, a personal shopper from the US, to procure the perfect shoes for the ball. We chose a pair of nude Sergio Rossi bejeweled strappy heels to match her gown.”

“Because the gown had an off-shoulder cut, we wanted to go all-out on the accessorizing.”

“To accentuate her neck and collarbones, we layered two diamond-encrusted necklaces. After which, we paired it with dangling earrings from Luvi Jewelry and a statement ring from Atelier 818 Jewelry.”


“Kim's look is elegant, bold and classy. It is fit for someone who started in the industry as a teen star, but is now beautifully transitioning into an iconic woman who has made an indelible mark in showbiz. She is definitely the star of her generation.”
