The annual Star Magic Ball is definitely an event that you wouldn’t want to miss out on. This year’s bash was especially grand because it also celebrated Star Magic’s 25th year in the industry and gave tribute to Mr. M, Johnny Manahan, himself, a notable pillar in the business who many stars look up to.

Of course, where there’s fun, there’s OPPO. The selfie expert was present to capture the moment, and it brought along its newest upgrade yet: the OPPO F5. It is set to be launched on October 26, but a select few were lucky enough to try it out before everybody else.

In exclusive interviews on Hotspot with DJ Jhai Ho, Kapamilya celebrities Joshua Garcia, Julia Barretto, Ronnie Alonte, Coleen Garcia, Jessy Mendiola, Janella Salvador, Gretchen Ho, Gretchen Fullido, Robi Domingo, and Matteo Guidicelli weighed in on the OPPO F5’s features and also shared their secrets on how to #CaptureTheRealYou.

Tip #1: Keep it light and enjoy life.

No FOMO for these trio! JoshLia and Ronnie are happy to live light and enjoy life. Julia Barretto looked absolutely glowing in her sleek and shimmering gown. She arrived with her Love You To The Stars And Back leading man Joshua Garcia who, judging from his selfies, had a very good reason to smile as well. Also present was their Vince, Kath, and James co-star Ronnie Alonte, who escorted A Good Son’s Loisa Andalio. Even when all dressed up, these three had no trouble with chilling and just having fun.

Not only did the classy look of their new phone complement their outfits, its long battery life made sure that their entire night was well-documented. From couple selfies to wacky poses, the OPPO F5 captured them all.

Tip #2: Find a signature pose. Know your angle and work it.

The blush of love is the best addition to one’s make up kit. Not everyone has it, but fortunately for these gorgeous ladies, they do. Coleen Garcia is bride-ready as she walked the red carpet with her fiancé, Billy Crawford. Janella Salvador, fresh and vibrant as always, is escorted by Elmo Magalona for the second time. A year into their relationship, Jessy Mendiola still has that in love flush with boyfriend Luis Manzano.

The key to having that glam selfie, according to these stunning beauties, is to be comfortable and have confidence in yourself. Do you know which is your best selfie angle? These ladies do. Knowing that the OPPO F5 only offers the best camera, they are confident that their selfies will look flawless. 

Tip #3: Smile! Look fresh, not stressed.

They are definitely so much more than a pretty face. Gretchen Fullido and Gretchen Ho, two of the most hardworking women in the industry, have mastered the art of looking glamorous even while working. Never would you see them with less than a winning smile. Indeed, even their #wokeuplikethis look is on point!

How these ladies balance work and glam is truly admirable, in the same way the OPPO F5 manages to balance its sleek look with its top-of-the-line features. Always on the go, their phones are a constant.  They capture the full moment, making it even more vibrant with the many fun effects that OPPO’s camera has to offer. Their selfies are not simply snapshots of random moments but a celebration of how they live their lives to the fullest.

Tip #4: Share happiness. Grab your squad and #groufie!

Going solo is no problem for Robi Domingo, who is always busy and on the go. He defines a selfie-worthy moment as those memories that you want to capture, moments that celebrate life. It could also be a chance for him to do his “kagat-labi” pose. A gamer, Robi also looks forward to the OPPO F5’s fast processor and ability to multitask.

Also flying solo, at least for the Ball, is Matteo Guidicelli. Always game to capture the moment, Matteo is selfie-ready anytime, anywhere. He actually took a groufie inside an elevator. It’s a good thing his OPPO phone has the option to expand and fit everyone in the shot! Like the OPPO F5, he sported a sleek look that had heads turning. Take note: he is still with girlfriend Sarah G, so no one get any crazy ideas.

Stay tuned for more updates on the OPPO F5 and its many features that #CaptureTheRealYou, to be launched this coming October 26. Check out OPPO’s website, Lazada page, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts for more information.
