With Independence Day just around the corner, join us as we take a look back at the most memorable looks of MEGA Ball of all time.
We only have one more night to go, and the MEGA Equality Ball is already happening. The créme de la créme of the Philippine fashion galas will once more teem the news and social media. Celebrities, influencers, and global personalities alike will strut the red carpet making sure they’d stand out individually.
But before we indulge in this year’s sought-after fashion gala, it’s only fitting to look at the most memorable looks of the MEGA Ball. From an ethereal white ensemble to a figure-forming sheer gown, these dresses surely made a mark on our red carpet.
Maymay Entrata, 2018
With maximum exposure as the theme of the ball in 2018, it’s definitely not easy to pull off a look that’s age appropriate. There will be some people who’ll either say it’s too much or you underplayed. But in the case of Maymay Entrata, she definitely knows what’s the perfect dress to don that’s age appropriate. Wearing a stunning fully-embellished Furne One creation paired with a statement earrings, the young star undoubtedly stood out on the red carpet.
Coleen Garcia, 2018
Coleen Garcia surely got the invite as she went all out with maximum exposure. She wore a silver sparkling Rosenthal Tee gown embellished with beaded tassels and crystals that effortlessly made her shine amongst the crowd. And thanks to her daring thigh-high slit and plunging neckline, she was undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with.
Lovi Poe, 2018
The moment Lovi Poe arrived at the red carpet, the star immediately caught everyone’s attention. As she dared to bare with a black sheer dress by Furne One, we can’t deny the fact that Lovi’s look was a scene-stealer at the ball.
Nadine Lustre, 2017
Nadine Lustre surely made a case for a modern Filipina look at the MEGA Ball 2017. She veered away from donning a terno and wore a majestic white Thian Rodriguez dress accented with a plunging neckline. But her entire look’s real pièce de résistance? It will none other be her jaw-dropping necklace made by Flutter Statement Jewelry.
Vice Ganda, 2017
You’ve probably heard of the adage, “with great power, comes great responsibility.” That’s just what Vice Ganda showed at the Pinoy Pride Ball. When he emerged at the fashion gala, he wore a breathtaking white piece by John Herrera complemented by a mile long train. But what really made this look memorable is how he utilized his platform properly by raising awareness on countless socio-political issues that the country is facing.
Kylie Versoza, 2017
Kylie Versoza kept her heritage intact as she still opted to wear butterfly sleeves. But to put a contemporary twist to the traditional terno, she wore a body-hugging pink Francis Libiran dress accentuated by heavy crystal embellishments. The best part of her look? It shall be how Francis marvelously elevated the butterfly sleeves with modern cutout detailing.
Ruffa Gutierrez, 2014
Showing how to remarkably strut the red carpet (or in this case, green carpet), Ruffa Gutierrez exuded no less than a regal aura. Wearing a black dress punctuated by an astonishing bishop sleeve and statement bow, she impeccably defined what it means to have great panache and glamorous style. After all, who wouldn’t be charmed by her ravishing ruby chandelier earrings?
Sarah Lahbati, 2014
Ever the sophisticated style star, Sarah Lahbati’s look at the Pinoy Pride Ball in 2014 proves just that. Donning an exquisite form-fitting gown with a beautiful train embellished with ostrich feathers, she looked like an ethereal goddess. Come to think of it, perhaps that’s why she never failed to mesmerize us.
