MANILA, Philippines – The night's official main event may have been the awards given at the Star Magic Ball, but let's face it – all eyes were on the red carpet to see who wore what to the big night.
All our favorite celebs were dressed to the nines on September 12 at the Star Magic Ball 2015, held at the Makati Shangri-La hotel.
We rounded up some of our favorite looks from the ball below:
Liza Soberano in Michael Cinco
Liza looked like a princess on the red carpet in her Michael Cinco gown, escorted of course, by her Prince Charming, Enrique Gil. Liza kept it fresh with minimal makeup and jewelry. Zoom in on the details on her pink gown, too. Details on her white clutch matched Enrique's white tux.
Here's a back view of Liza's dress:

Julia Montes in Albert Andrada
Julia looked stunning walking down the red carpet in Albert Andrada. The dress might look simple at first glance, but its beauty is all in the details: the sheer fabric that allowed for its low neckline and back cutout, the simple embellishment that defined her waist, and the train that caught our attention the moment she turned around. The dress looked a touch bridal at first glance – but zooming in on the details shows off those winning touches.
Belle Daza in Vania Romoff
On Instagram, Raymond Gutierrez actually revealed that Belle had to finish getting dressed in the car – but you wouldn't know it just by looking at her, as she looked relax and stress-free on the red carpet with pal Iza Calzado. Designer Vania Romoff is well known for clean, fuss-free lines and impeccable fit, and Belle showed that off perfectly.
Here's a look at the back of Belle's dress:

Iza Calzado in Jun Escario
Iza's nude-toned number by Jun Escario was simple and sleek, and set the perfect backdrop for her attention-grabbing accessories. Her iridescent bag and jeweled heels stole the show, as did her jewelry, but Iza definitely didn't overdo it.
Erich Gonzales in Francis Libiran
The detail on Erich's Francis Libiran gown was beautiful, but what really got our attention was the black embellished belt around her waist. While it was a nice touch on its own, the black in her outfit tied in nicely with boyfriend and date Daniel Matsunaga's tux perfectly. Erich was also blooming on the red carpet, all smiles and loving looks exchanged with Daniel.
Bea Alonzo in Alexander McQueen
Last year, Bea went with two Great Gatsby-inspired looks, and this year, she changed it up in simple black and white. But what stood out the most was her absolute poise as she stood and posed, first with Zanjoe and later, solo – she walked the red carpet like a queen.
Kim Chiu in Pepsi Herrera
Kim floated and sparkled on the red carpet in her dress by Pepsi Herrera. Kim changed it up by tastefully showing off some skin, not only when her bodice transitioned into a flowing skirt, but also when she turned around to reveal that the off-shoulder gown was actually backless with a single beaded line cutting across her upper back.
Maricar Reyes in Vania Romoff
Maricar always looks poised and elegant, and last night was no exception. Maricar chose her accessories well too, letting her white dress and its interesting form and shape do all the talking. She glowed from within, looking happy, relaxed, and in love.

Kim Jones in Jun Escario
Not one to settle for a safe choice, Kim can pull off pretty much anything she wears – including an edgier look, featuring a structured white dress with an emerald green clutch, dark choker, and a slicked-back hairstyle
Kathryn Bernardo in Michael Cinco
Kathryn, together with her love team partner Daniel Padilla, won Best Dressed Couple at the ball, and we can see why. The cutouts on her Michael Cinco dress might have been more daring than usual for the Teen Queen, but the cut kept her looking classy and elegant.
Tootsy Angara in Rajo Laurel
Tootsy's look for the Star Magic Ball was all geometric shapes and lines. Tootsy's modern look by Rajo Laurel was cut in all the right places, and showed just the right amount of skin. Tootsy also wore a white gown to the 2014 Star Magic Ball, but this one doesn't recall that at all and had its own shining moment on the red carpet.
Denise Laurel in Vania Romoff
Denise channeled Old Hollywood glamour with her hair let down and wavy, and in a sleek, shiny number that looked like liquid silver when it moved. On the wrong person a slit that high wouldn't have worked – on Denise, it was a contrasting feature to the rest of the gown's sculpted structure, worn comfortably and well.
Julia Barretto in Mark Bumgarner
Julia might have kept it sweet and airy in her pink gown by Mark Bumgarner, but the actress kept her look mature with a slimmer silhouette. No poofy gown, no over-embellishment.
Maja Salvador in Rajo Laurel
Maja's champagne gown by Rajo Laurel was beautiful for its pleating and silhouette, but she amped up the look with all the right accessories. Her gold clutch didn't clash with the rest of the outfit, and she kept the rest of the look simple.
Maja stood tall and serene on the red carpet, and ultimately that's what made her shine.
Channelling old Hollywood! I love how @iammajasalvador looks like a painting coming to life! #9thstarmagicball #StarMagicBall2015 grateful to the trust & the faith. #couture @houseoflaurel A photo posted by Rajo Laurel (@rajolaurel) on Sep 12, 2015 at 6:44am PDT
KZ Tandingan in Yang Bautista
KZ looked fierce in a Yang Bautista number paired with bold lips. The singer has never been afraid to rock an edgy look, and her outfit at the Star Magic Ball 2015 was no exception.
More than anything, it's KZ's confidence, strong poses, and all-around cool vibe that make the look overall.
