A night of fashion, fun and Pinoy pride, this year’s MEGA Ball is full of surprises.
Throughout the years, the star-studded event has been the site of many unforgettable and iconic moments. Whether its celebrities making their couple debut on the red carpet or showing up in an unforgettable look, the annual MEGA Ball is filled with moments that keeps the Internet talking for days and this year’s celebration is in no short of that. After more than two years, entertainers, models, and industry insiders alike went back to this year’s black carpet with their style A-game following the theme “Glam Rock: A Performance of Style.” Not only did this over-the-top dress code allow the guest to show off their sartorial flair but it made the whole event feel like a huge reunion party that included some all-nighter fun.
Are you curious about what happened behind the scenes? Here are six unexpected moments from the MEGA Ball 2022:
1. Beauty Queens Owning The Glam Bot and Photobooths
While the hallway outside of the ballroom was packed with people, all eyes were on Kylie Verzosa, Pia Wurtzbach, and Megan Young when they stepped out and headed straight to the photobooths together. Each of them gave the camera their best fierce eyes while posing harmoniously together, making each shot an iconic photo.
2. James Reid And Nadine Lustre Rock The Red Carpet
The Careless Crew came together during the night which included ex-couple James Reid and Nadine Lustre. Proving that you can still be good friends with your exes, they slayed the black carpet and photo vignettes together alongside the rest of the members of their record label.

3. BJ Pascual Arrives With International Models Kelsey Merritt and Christina Nadin
You’ll never know when the likes of Victoria’s Secret model Kelsey Merritt and half-Filipino, half-British model Christina Nadin would be in town due to their jet-set lifestyle. Thankfully this year’s MEGA Ball was held at the same time they were both visiting the country. They arrived arm in arm with creative and fashion photographer BJ Pascual.
4. Anji Salvacion Makes Her Black Carpet Debut
One of the first-timers spotted on the black carpet was Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Season 10 Big Winner Anji Salvacion. Despite this being her first MEGA Ball, she nailed the theme of glam rock by wearing a feathered Ardie Couture gown with matching leather gloves.

5. Cassy Legaspi Goes From Heels To Slippers
You know you had a good time when your heels break and that is what exactly happened to Cassy Legaspi. During the afterparty, the actress’ heeled boots broke prompting her to wear hotel slippers the rest of the night.
6. Mavy Legaspi Sweeps Kyline Alcantara Off Her Feet
Who needs a change of flats after a long night on heels when you have a handsome partner to carry you. One MEGA member who was on the way to the washroom spotted Mavy Legaspi carrying Kyline Alcantara bridal style because her feet were hurting from her towering boots. Both were smiling and laughing as they went back to the ballroom. Talk about true love!
