Liza Soberano may only be 20 years old, but she's already a legendary beauty who's been turning heads and winning hearts with the face of an angel and an elegant sense of style to match. As the much-anticipated ABS-CBN Ball approaches in mere hours, let us take you through her Star Magic Ball style evolution—see for yourself just how her taste has sharpened and refined over the years! With her track record of best dressed mentions, can't wait to find out what she'll be wearing tomorrow night.
So demure. Liza's tiered white Edwin Tan gown boasted tulle tiers and a retro cut reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn's iconic party frock in the classic 1954 film Sabrina. What better way to swathe a young ingenue, after all?
The rising star made her red carpet appearance in a strapless black Edwin Tan creation that was beaded head to toe. That sparkle, though! The bustier bodice and mermaid silhouette fit her to a T, which makes for a look that was simultaneously old-world glam and subtly sexy.
Note that millennial pink wasn't even a thing back then. Liza stunned that year in a dainty, blush-hued ball gown by Dubai-based master designer Michael Cinco! To counter the dress' elaborate detailing, she kept her beauty look sweet and simple with soft, shoulder-grazing waves and peach-toned makeup. Totally fit for a teenage dream slash fairytale princess.
It was this decadent, pale blue Michael Cinco that won Liza a Best Deviant of the Night award in our book. Well-deserved! The fete's dress code was black and white, but no one batted a lash when the young actress swept in wearing this gorgeous, maddeningly intricate frock. Of it, her stylist Perry Tabora said: "For Liza’s gown, we wanted something that was sort of a modern version of Renaissance fashion. The structure of the gown and the intricate design of the embroidery are reminiscent of the style during the Renaissance era, but the peek-a-boo at the front, the open back, and the pockets are some daring and modern twists." Yep, pockets, people. She didn't even carry a clutch!
Liza's stunning tulle frock last year may not have been custom-made, but it was from none other than Dior...and it came with a cool story, too. Her makeup artist Mickey See told us in an exclusive: "Buti nalang nakita niya sa Hong Kong kase one piece lang 'yan sa Dior Hong Kong. Kakadating lang nung nabili niya." Liza added, "It was my stylist who went around. He was scouting for different dresses. He went to different designers and I tried on many dresses but this was the perfect fit for me and the most age-appropriate." Off-the-rack style on the red carpet? Absolutely!
