Sarah Lahbati isn’t afraid to experiment with style. And experiment she did at the ABS-CBN Ball 2019. The 25-year-old actress brought the drama in a pearl white gown by Mark Bumgarner, made voluminous by its oversized, off-shoulder sleeves. “The theme is Filipinana, so I wanted to respect that and wear something that I would still appreciate five to 10 years [from now],” she said.
