From BINI as Snow White & The Seven Dwarves to Belle Mariano as Holiday Barbie, ring in the holidays with these stunningly-dressed young stars at Star Magical Christmas 2023!
On its second consecutive year, Star Magic’s Star Magical Christmas event celebrated togetherness, thanksgiving, and love. The white carpet saw the merriest of outfits, the sparkliest of accessories, and plenty of creative liberty as everyone from DonBelle to BGYO, Vivoree to Darren Espanto expressed light and joy through their fashion.
Star Magical Christmas isn’t just a party or fashion show, though. While walking down the white carpet, stars carried stuffed toys and gifts to place in a giant box at the end of the “runway” for beneficiaries of the Bantay Bata 163 foundation. Now that’s what it’s all about.
But from epic, Halloween costume-like garb to classically elegant and festive looks, these Gen Z stars shone bright and merry—and gave us plenty of outfit ideas to choose from for our own holiday parties.
DONNY PANGILINAN AND BELLE MARIANO
Our Barbie and Ken! The nation’s it-couple Belle Mariano and Donny Pangilinan were Christmas picture-perfect as she dressed as “Holiday Belle,” inspired by the 2019 Holiday Barbie doll, and he accompanied her as her ever-supportive Ken.
AC BONIFACIO, ANGELA KEN, AND HADIYAH SANTOS
Artists and good friends Hadiyah Santos, AC Bonifacio, and Angela Ken made Frozen (2013) come to life as they dressed as Elsa, Olaf, and Anna.
JUAN KARLOS AND KYLE ECHARRI
The boys are back—and they’re here to deliver presents! Dynamic duo and Senior High stars Juan Karlos and Kyle Echarri were very much giving high-fashion-meets-mafia-boss Santa and Rudolph in fur coats and monochromatic (or should we say, mono-Chrismatic) outfits.
Why hang a parol when you can be the parol? Andrea Brillantes’ angelic, wintry parol look was a chilly showstopper at Star Magical Christmas.
The Grinch if he slayed! Kaori Oinuma debuted a fun, bright, campy look in bright green fur reminiscent of Bratz doll style and the mean green Christmas thief.
The incredibly adorable eight-member BINI came to the party dressed as Snow White and the seven dwarves, with Stacey as the OG princess herself and Maloi, Jhoanna, Colet, Aiah, Mikha, Gwen, and Sheena as the dwarves.
Gotta love the symbols of Christmas—BGYO. By that we mean Akira, JL, Nate, Gelo, and Mikki as reindeer, a Christmas tree, Santa Claus, a snowman, and a present.
Joshua Garcia looks like he’s ready to build the greatest chocolate shop the world has ever seen. The actor channeled his inner Willy Wonka at the Christmas event and looked totally ready for Wonka (which shows in PH cinemas this December 6).
SETH FEDELIN AND FRANCINE DIAZ
Straight out of a fairytale, the FranSeth loveteam of Francine Diaz and Seth Fedelin looked elegant and royal in a matching white feathered gown and green suit with feather details.
Singer, actress, and Tabing Ilog: The Musical cast member Vivoree Esclito looked cute and stylish in a metallic green dress and sparkling accessories as an elf ready to liven up a party.
The icy blonde Chie Filomeno looked stunning decked out in stones and jewels and giant feathery wings. It’s giving Snow Angel at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013, and we’re living for it.
Speaking of icy, young actress Kira Balinger was very much the Ice Princess in a studded bodysuit and regal white cape.
Many young stars put a little fun, Halloween-y twist on Star Magical Christmas, and one such standout is actor JC Alcantara, who dressed as—no, not as a Smurf nor as Sadness from Inside Out— but the Ice King from Adventure Time. We love a good reference.
Someday, my prince will come…to the Star Magical Christmas ball. Singer-actor Darren Espanto served straight-up Ice Prince vibes with an all-white sequined and bejeweled suit.
DANIELA STRANNER, XYRIEL MANABAT, & GELA ATAYDE
Totally Spies—but make it Christmassy! Senior High actresses Daniela Stranner, Xyriel Manabat, and Gela Atayde decked the halls in classic red, gold, and green ‘fits that brought all the holiday cheer.
