Witness The 2019 ABS-CBN Ball red carpet happenings as they unfold through Metro’s exclusive coverage on Saturday (September 14) on Metro Channel and Metro.Style’s official YouTube channel, with celebrity hosts Robi Domingo and Karylle for the pre-show and seasoned hosts Gretchen Ho, Raymond Gutierrez, Gretchen Fullido, Sarah Meier, Bianca Gonzales, and Boy Abunda for the exclusive red carpet special.
The 2019 ABS-CBN Ball will celebrate 65 years of being in the service of the Filipino, for the benefit of Bantay Bata 163’s Bantay Edukasyon Program. The ball will also honor the late Gina Lopez, the founder of Bantay Bata and other programs under the ABS-CBN Foundation’s Sagip Kapamilya and Bantay Kalikasan.
The one-hour Metro pre-show will delve into the behind the scenes and details of the ball: a retrospect of ABS-CBN’s 65 years; a primer on the ball’s advocacy, Bantay Bata 163’s Bantay Edukasyon Program; a tribute to the champion of life and love that was Gina Lopez; and a glance at the food and entertainment that will be served once the doors to the ball close.
Special guests from the fashion industry will also join the show to talk about red carpet predictions and the dress code—modern Filipiniana—paying homage to local artistry, creativity, and ingenuity. Jo Claravall, the creative mastermind dressing up Shangri-la At the Fort for the ABS-CBN Ball, will share what went into the design process for the most awaited event of the year.
Metro’s Live at the Red Carpet coverage will be everyone’s window to the hottest and latest happenings on the red carpet and exclusives on who and what the celebrities are wearing and bringing to the event.
