Once again, the Star Magic Ball 2017 made the headlines for its unparalleled glitz and glamour. The best and the brightest stars in the Star Magic roster, along with its former talents, have gathered to party the night away, and pay tribute to the big bosses who made everything happen for them.
The turnout for this year’s biggest bash was not disappointing, as die-hard fans and showbiz pundits never fail to give a blow-by-blow accounts of who’s wearing what and who’s-who in the industry.
While most of the attendees come from the Kapamilya network, there are some celebrities who were present because of invitation and had special roles during the night, like Claudine Barretto and Kristine Hermosa. Both actresses led the tribute to Johnny Manahan, who is more popularly known as Mr. M. He founded Star Magic, the talent management arm of ABS-CBN.
The celebrities also honored Star Creatives Chief Operating Officer Malou Santos. Piolo Pascual, Jericho Rosales, Angelica Panganiban, Bea Alonzo, Claudine Barretto, and Xian Lim offered a toast for the Star Cinema executive.
But of course, what’s a showbiz event without special awards for the artistas?
Real-life couple Jessy Mendiola and Luis Manzano were named the Oppo Selfie Couple of the Night.
“La Luna Sangre” star Kathryn Bernardo truly shined in her sparkling Patricia Santos gown as she won Pond’s Brightest Star of the Night Award.
“Love You to the Stars and Back” lead Julia Barretto was stunning in her pearly-white Mark Bumgarner ensemble, taking home Pond’s Belle of the Ball Award.
Despite being first-time attendees, the tandem KissMarc, Kisses Delavin and Marco Gallo of Pinoy Big Brother fame, bagged the Cornetto Tip-To-Top (Best Dressed) Award. Kisses was indeed a show-stopper in her white, high-neck ball gown creation of Francis Libiran. On the other hand, Marco looked equally sharp in his Nat Manilag tuxedo.
