MANILA - The Philippines' most sought-after on- and off-screen couples dazzled on the red carpet, Saturday as they joined other stars at the ABS-CBN Ball 2019.
Kathryn Bernardo wore a red Michael Cinco piece, which she said was a departure from the neutral color palette she chose for the previous editions of the annual ball.
Her boyfriend, Daniel Padilla, was praised for layering a barong with a suit made out of Benguet fabric.
Enrique Gil, meanwhile, chose to wear a black Randy Ortiz barong, with girlfriend Liza Soberano in a barong-inspired cream Filipiniana gown.
Nadine Lustre's Michael Leyva number sparkled as she walked down the red carpet with beau James Reid, whose Paulo Lazaro creation paid homage to the Philippine flag.
Kim Chiu traded her usual ball gowns for a serpentine Filipiniana at this year's ABS-CBN Ball, while her boyfriend Xian Lim wore a matching textured coat that was accentuated with a golden neck piece.
