For this year’s ABS-CBN Ball, celebrities were given the theme of putting their own modern spin to the traditional Filipino outfit, which is also a way to highlight our national costume and culture.
One of those female celebrities that always made heads turn whenever she flaunts her red-carpet looks is the 21-year-old beautiful Kapamilya actress Liza Soberano, who looks elegant and gorgeous no matter what she wears.
Last September 14, Liza together with her real-life beau, Enrique Gil, stood out as they walked on the red carpet of the ABS-CBN Ball 2019. The star-studded event was held at the grand ballroom of Shangri-La at the Fort in Bonifacio Global City.
As for Liza’s simple yet elegant look of the night, she opted to show off her Dalagang Filipina look by pulling her hair back into a modest bun, while for her highly anticipated gown, she wore a pale silver embroidered Barong Tagalog-inspired Filipiniana gown with long butterfly sleeves designed by Patricia Santos, who is known as one of the best Filipino designers.
In one of her recent interviews with ABS-CBN News, Liza admits feeling pressured about living up the public’s expectations regarding her outfit in 2019 ABS CBN ball.
The 21-year-old Kapamilya actress said: “I can never really say that I’m fully excited for the ball because I feel that there is so much pressure.” She added, “I don’t want to let people down, of course, but also I don’t want their expectations to really get into my head”
But Liza also mentioned in the last part of her interview that she just wants to enjoy the ball and spend time with her fellow actors.
She went on to clarify that the annual event is not only about glamour as it’s also done for a good cause.
“This event isn’t just glamour; it is also about giving back and I really respect that and I’m all for that,” Said by Liza Soberano.
ABS-CBN 2019 Ball is themed “Celebrating 65 years of being In the Service of the Filipino,” which is set as a fundraising event for the benefit of Bantay Bata 163’s Bantay Edukasyon program, this aims to provide scholarships to less privileged youth.
The event will also honor the foundation’s beloved late founder Gina Lopez.
