The key to a well-polished, best-dressed worthy look is balance. An extravagant ball gown should not be matched with loud accessories, while a minimalist dress can easily be taken up a notch with the right kind of bling. At the Star Magic Ball, diamonds and pearls ruled the jewelry game while tiny, sparkly gold and silver purses were the accessory du jour. Our favorites, however, would have to be these four white stunners that made us green with envy.
Below, our top 5 picks and a few other shimmering standouts:
1. Ellen Adarna's Medusa and Midas Minaudiere by Neil Felipp
To match her stunner of a Joey Samson pantsuit, Ellen chose this white minaudiere wrapped with slytherins that were just hissing for attention.
2. Bea Alonzo's Simian White Minaudiere by Neil Felipp
Only an artistic mind would think of putting Simians (basically primates) in a clutch and still manage to make it look this chic! This Neil Felipp creation was the perfect cherry on top of Bea's winning McQueen frock.
3. Isabelle Daza's Beaded Clutch by Bea Valdes
Isabelle's last-minute change inside her Aston Martin ride didn't mess up her personal style at all. She balanced her simple yet elegant, caped Vania Romoff dress by pairing it with a textured purse. The beads and embroidery of this clutch were handcrafted by Bea Valdes Designs.
4. Sam Lewis' Juanita Clutch by Alzano
Our favorite from Sam's Star Magic Ball ensemble would have to be her floral clutch. The Juanita is made up of a store-bought satin clutch embellished with hand-stitched gardenia flowers made from acetate petals and gun-metal cultured pearls. Special, indeed.
5. Kim Jones' Caterina Snakeskin clutch by Aranaz
In a sea of white and gold clutches, Kim's simple snakeskin bag stood out.The fringe detail added the dash of flair that tied the look altogether.
Below, a list of celebs who opted for some shine and sparkle:
Maja Salvador matched her diamonds with a silver Jimmy Choo candy clutch.
Coleen Garcia's embellished Anna Rubio clutch added sparkle to her laced frock.
Female Star of the Night, Julia Montes, kept it simple with her custom matte gold Anna Rubio clutch.
This Neil Felipp Royal Siren minaudiere was the perfect accessory to Julia Barretto's mermaid-inspired Mark Bumgarner dress.
Shaina Magdayao's John Herrera gown and glittery Swarovski clutch by House of Laurel were a match made in rose gold heaven.
Beads, sparkles, gems—KZ Tandingan went all-out with an Anna Rubio purse as her main bling.
