Yeng Constantino gives us a peek into what's happening inside the venue (Photo from Yeng's Instagram account):
What a lovely couple these two make, both decked in Francis Libiran: Erich Gonzales in a nude gown featuring the designer's signature pattern and a belt accent, and Daniel Matsunaga in a classic suit which he paired with patent dress shoes.
JC de Vera is all smiles in a Paul Cabral suit.
Who needs embellishments and frou frou if you're as naturally beautiful as these two? Isabelle Daza shows off her slender silhouette and golden complexion in a lilac Vania Romoff piece while Iza Calzado perfectly mixes edge with elegance in a beige Jun Escario gown.
Coleen Garcia's blush-colored gown is daring and dainty at the same time with a bustier top and tulle bottom. Also wearing Edwin Tan like his real-life sweetheart, Billy makes his boss lady look even better by taking dapper up a notch.
Enchong Dee and girlfriend Samantha Lewis look like they stepped out of a historical romance: Him in a white tuxedo by M Barretto, her in an intricately embroidered gown by Jor-el Espina.
Xian Lim wore a Francis Libiran ensemble (check out the details of his pants!), while Kim Chiu collaborated with Pepsi Herrera on an embellished gown with thousands of tiny crystals.
Jodi Sta. Maria wore a beige and white embroidered Hannah Kong gown, while son Thirdy Lacson looked adorable in a Ulysses King ensemble.
#KathNiel opted to go all-white: Kathryn in a Michael Cinco masterpiece with eyelet details and Daniel Padilla in a Joey Samson suit that makes him all the more gwapo.
Joey Samson is the designer of choice of many men at the 9th Star Magic Ball, including Joseph Marco.
Gerald Anderson in a suit by Joey Espiritu, who incidentally is also his stylist. He is accompanied by his niece Lyra.
Sam Milby suits up in white for a change. He totally rocked this tuxedo set by Francis Libiran, don't you think?
Alex Gonzaga gave menswear a try by way of this Rajo Laurel pantsuit.
Bea Alonzo stood out for her Alexander McQueen gown's sheer simplicity, while boyfriend Zanjoe Marudo followed suit in a Comme des Garcons tuxedo.
This blush-colored gown perfectly complements Pokwang's olive-colored complexion. Her ultimate accessory? Boyfriend Lee O'Brien.
No more sleek and edgy for Julia Montes: This time, she went for a simple ethereal white Albert Andrada gown.
WIth her look anchored on a John Herrera gown, Shaina Magdayao is Old Hollywood glam personified.
Metro Magazine Editor-in-Chief Sarah Meier shows that menswear can be feminine, too, via a beaded Rajo Laurel pantsuit.
Maricar Reyes-Poon stays on the classic, feminine side in a white Vania Romoff gown, while her husband Richard Poon donned an Edwin Tan suit.

Embroidery is the name of the game for #LizQuen: Enrique Gil in a white and black Pepsi Herrera suit and Liza Soberano in a blush-colored Michael Cinco number.
Denise Laurel looked oh so hot in a two-piece Vania Romoff design that showed off her shoulders and legs.
What black and white? Make like John Lloyd Cruz who layered a textured gray tuxedo over his usual buttondowns and cardigans. His girlfriend, Angelica Panganiban, is a vision in white in an embellished Rajo Laurel gown.
Piolo Pascual's suit of choice? A well-tailored Dior set.
Rayver Cruz in a Bang Pineda suit.
Yeng Constantino's quirky personality was complemented by the unorthodox silhouette of her gown by Albert Andrada. Husband Yan Asuncion, on the other hand, wore a Jinggo Inoncillo ensemble.
