Scene Stealers At The 2014 Metro Manila Film Festival

Here are the winners in our eyes.
Scene Stealers At The 2014 Metro Manila Film Festival Here are the winners in our eyes.

The movies are still showing and the awards night is over, but you haven’t heard from us yet. While social media is still buzzing about who should or shouldn’t have won at the annual Metro Manila Film Festival, we would rather focus on what we know best especially on the red carpet. We love seeing celebrities dressed to the nines, but the truth is, only a few stood out. Who are our sartorial bets that gave us a reason to be cheery regardless of the turn-out of events? Scroll down to see. 

Jennylyn Mercado got all the other stars go green with envy not only because of her Best Actress award for her comedic role in English Only, Please, but also very much because of her emerald frock by Anthony Ramirez. Not only was the serpentine gown fit for an award winning actress, it was also hissing hot because of its plunging neckline and even lower scooped back. 


Jennylyn looked like the total package deserving of a trophy with her tasteful hair and makeup that matched her elegant gown. The smoky eye amped up with purple liner was by makeup artist Cristine del Valle Duque and the messy side bun was by hairstylist Mark Baquiran.

This pretty lady may not have won any major awards that night, but she sure is on our spotlight. Carla Abellana caught our attention in her seafoam green Mark Bumgarner gown and sparkly danglers from Firma.

Makeup artist Leo Posadas made sure she looked event-ready by simply highlighting her features with a fresh look via earth tones, a light blush, and pink pouts.


No wonder this rising star won Face of the Night. Nadine Lustre looked fresh with her sleek and straight tresses by Paul Nebres and age-appropriate makeup by Jelly Eugenio

It seems like colored liners were a trend that night as Jelly gave Nadine tantalizing eyes through glitter shadow and a winged turquoise liner.  


Sam Pinto looked like a star plucked out from the 1920s movie in her white Rhett Eala stunner. Stylist Charmaine Palermo then paired the fully beaded mesh gown with Panopio Jewels and had Sam's hair curled to perfection on one side. 

Who else did we spot sporting designer? Meg Imperial went for classic black and white in Jaz Cerezo. The minimalist look suit her well, don't you think?
