As the annual Independence Day ball just wrapped up, we bring you the best-dressed women at the MEGA Equality Ball.
Philippine fashion’s finest celebrities definitely know how to shut down the red carpet. With the dress code revolving around metallics, it’s only expected that we witness countless sparkling dresses. Lo and behold, that’s exactly what teemed the ever-sophisticated hallways of the Sofitel Manila.
Each of the attendees undoubtedly brought their sartorial A-game the next level. From a mermaid sequined dress to a dramatic ruffle ensemble, we must admit that there are several showstopping looks. But in every fashion gala, there will always be style savants who’ll truly stand out. So now, we bring you the best-dressed women at the MEGA Equality ball.
10. Iza Calzado
Looks like New Ph Awardee Iza Calzado certainly knows how to turn up the volume on sparkle upon arriving. Wearing an exquisite body-hugging silver dress, our first-ever MEGA Weddings cover star radiated with so much beauty.
9. Coleen Garcia
Giving us more than just the regular gold, silver, and bronze metallics, Coleen Garcia emerged in a sequined plum dress with a daring thigh-high slit. But our favorite accent on her look? The statement ruffle on one shoulder.
8. Chie Filomeno
The moment Chie Filomeno arrived, she easily caught everyone’s attention. And showing us how to work the red carpet, Chie instantly stunned everyone in an astonishing dress paired with a sparkling bodysuit by Boom Sason.

Kiana Valenciano was bold enough to show some skin as she walked the red carpet. She gave us no less than a fierce Amazona aura donning an exquisite silver Francis Libiran number accented by a sheer crystal embellished stilettos.
6. Heart Evangelista-Escudero
Never failing to mesmerize us one outfit after another, Heart Evangelista-Escudero pulled all the stops at the Sofitel Manila. Our favorite style star shined amongst the crowd wearing a sequined rose gold dress with a thigh-high slit by Mark Bumgarner.

Impeccably bedazzling everyone at the fashion gala was none other than Elisse Joson. Donning a bejeweled dress with a daring thigh-high slit by designer Ushisato, she seamlessly turned some heads.

Whenever the queen arrives, a powerful red carpet entrance is expected. And that’s what we just witnessed when our June cover star Catriona Gray arrived in a rose gold figure-forming gown by Mak Tumang, of course. Her pièce de résistance? It’s her breathtaking stole wrapped around her.
3. Nadine Lustre
Nadine Lustre showed us the real description of sheer perfection. Wearing a breathtaking sheer-sequined Neric Beltran creation, we cannot deny the fact that she looks absolutely ravishing without the need for a dose of extra details. Come to think of it, she truly epitomizes the famous adage, “simple yet elegant.”
