While many stars opted for neutrals, others like Andrea Brillantes, Kisses Delavin, and Yassi Pressman resisted the norm and surprised the crowd in bright and colorful outfits at the ABS-CBN Ball 2019. That night, Yassi wore a bright chartreuse color that worked out well with her skin tone.
"Yassi’s look is inspired by nature, strongly feminine, dalagang Filipina, ready to have fun at the Ball," shared her stylist Joanna Garcia to ABS-CBN Lifestyle.

Joanna wanted a look that speaks of Yassi's personality, which is fun, outgoing, yet very feminine. But for this look to work well, Joanna knows that fit is everything. "I really wanted her terno to fit like a glove, hence, I contacted Anthony Ramirez to collaborate with her Ball look," she said. We first decided on the color that she wanted. "The fresh punchy color with the classic terno sleeves is really what we are going for."
"We really wanted her to be in something classic with soft flowy lines, (and for it to be) in line with her style and look—very effortless and strongly feminine," Joanna added. And since we wanted a very simple silhouete, (we decided not to put) beadings or embellishments, (and instead use) soft fabric and a strong color that will stand out from the crowd," added Joanna.
To complete the outfit, Joanna accessorized Yassi with diamonds and a handmade pearl fan shaped clutch from a Filipino designer, Handbags by Isobel.
