We heard the upcoming Star Magic Ball is about to get an extra dose of glam and we're on pins and needles just waiting to see which fabulous dresses celebrities will rock on the red carpet. We let our creative juices to work and imagined best dressed beauties Kathryn Bernardo, Liza Soberano, Julia Barretto, Kim Chiu, and Bea Alonzo in looks inspired by this season's hottest trends:
Chic and sophisticated, this layered taffeta gown combines up-to-date trends with tasteful elegance. And with the Teen Queen Kathryn Bernardo's distinctive, chameleon-esque look, this effortlessly graceful, feminine and fashion-forward gown will allow her to play with normally unconventional shapes and materials.
Modern, minimalist styles are also a hit. And while these asymmetricals are certainly understated, they are totally unique. Julia Barretto's looks are always some of most eye-catching on the red carpet, and there is not much she can’t pull off. And we'd love to see her in a contemporary gown that exudes elegance and flair—look how this gown is just made with hints of both.
Whether fully sheer silhouettes or illusion cutouts, silky slip gowns and the most delicate laces are gracing the runways, too. Before, Kim Chiu often chooses classic princess silhouettes, so this bell-sleeved lace two-piece gown would be a sexy departure from her more traditional red carpet choices.
Bea Alonzo always impresses us with her classic yet edgy and unexpected gowns. Leg-baring slits have enough lengthening and slimming power on their own, but you can ramp that up even further by choosing a statement neckline—like this plunging one—that will draw the eye upwards to your beautiful face and make you look inches taller in an instant.
Lace florals popped up on the runways yet again, taking a more ethereal turn with delicate organza appliqués blooming onto gowns. And this pretty actress who's never one to shy away from pastel colors and girly touches is Liza Soberano. Last year, she chose to wear a majestic feminine pink ball gown which totally made her look like a real-life Barbie doll. Our pick for her is a light blue gown with a tulle train that would keep her look still in the pretty category while leveling up the modernness. Rather than feeling stuffy, this netted number is both ethereal and cool. Another plus? Tulle works really well with another favored trend: Colorful gowns.
