Every Sunday, the ASAP Natin ‘To stars always give us a one-of-a-kind party experience. At the ABS-CBN Ball 2019, they did not fail to bring in the festive aura by wearing their highly fashionable outfits. Aside from having a night of celebration along with other Kapamilya celebrities, their attendance at the ball speaks that they are one with the advocacy the event supports.
This year’s ball hopes to make a big contribution on the Bantay Edukasyon program of the Bantay Bata 163 foundation. The event aims to help build the dreams of the rescued children who were once abused, neglected and/or abandoned.
As they supported this cause, the ASAP Natin ‘To stars added fun and excitement to the gala as they made a grand entrance at the red carpet.
Main hosts came in exuding elegance in their own stylish ways. Piolo Pascual was absolutely debonair on his all black barong suit and coat. Husband and wife Regine Velasquez and Ogie Alcasid looked timeless together. Regine wore a black satin, v-shaped Filipiniana while Ogie matched her on a fully embroidered barong Tagalog. Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano wore “a custom-made suit in piña cocoon combined with a black fine wool fabric” according to designer Nat Manilag. Erik Santos is dapper in his white, fully embroidered barong with side brass buttons, while the Concert King Martin Nievera is ultramodern in his abstract designed black and white barong.
iWant ASAP hosts Donny Pangilina and MayWard were all classy at the red carpet show. Donny gave an all black ensemble black sequined barong and black pants. On the other hand, Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber who came in at the ball together, had a mocha and gold theme representing the Manila Cathedral in the Spanish colonial era. Maymay is fierce on her fully sequined closed neck Filipiniana, while Edward achieved his Spanish colonial era general look, complete with a gold buttoned coat with a brown leather belt.
Meanwhile, the regular performers of our all-time favorite Sunday musical show exhibited the most sophisticated get-ups.

Maris walked in an orange “custom reclaimed tulle and organza mock gown” according to her Instagram post, while Inigo paired her in a red, checkered designed ensemble with an overlapping white embroidered barong on his chest. Boyband PH, which consists of Tristan Ramirez, Niel Murillo, Ford Valencia, Joao Costancia and Russell Reyes, were all dashing in their black and white ensemble.

Nyoy Volante, who donned a platinum gray barong paired with black pants, walked the red carpet with Moira Dela Torre who looked very lovely on her heart-shaped, red sparkling gown.
