Last night’s GMA Gala was seriously stunning. A-list celebrities such as Barbie Forteza, Gabbi Garcia, and Kyline Alcantara pulled out all the stops for their ‘Elegant Formal’ looks. But if you thought the fun stopped there, you’re wrong.

In case you didn’t know, there’s a whole world of celebrity looks that often goes unseen. While the spotlight went to what the stars wore on the red carpet, there were also some fierce looks served that you probably didn’t see on camera. From behind-the-scene moments to pre-party showstoppers, these stars served major picture-perfect pieces that didn’t make it to the gala’s red carpet.

Barbie Forteza

On Instagram, Barbie Forteza surprised fans with wearable art that completely complements her pre-party photoshoot. In photos, NYLON Manila’s July cover star slays a euphoric Ehrran Montoya ‘Chrysalis’ gown styled by Jan Roque. Well, we all agree Barbie is serving silver like no other.

Kyline Alcantara and Mavy Legaspi

Kyline Alcantara and Mavy Legaspi are a picture-perfect couple, capturing a getaway in Italy. Their playful pre- ball shoot serves Jacquemus dresses, khaki pants, and a gorgeous golden summer glow. On Instagram, Kyline captions her post with la dolce vita. Clearly, the celebrity couple is truly living the sweetest life — on screens and IRL!

Gabbi Garcia

From sweet to sultry. Compared to last year’s GMA Gala, Gabbi Garcia takes it to the next level with a daring two-piece ensemble by Martin M. Bautista. Styled by Quarator Studio, the whole afterparty look was tied together with Tiffany & Co. jewels. Gabbi might have just contributed to this recent heat wave.

Ysabel Ortega

It’s true, one designer is never enough. Even if she was in California for San Diego Comic-Con, that didn’t stop Ysabel Ortega from serving. As she shared on Instagram, the Voltes V: Legacy star wore Yves Saint Laurent and Bonita Peñaranda for her pre-party look. It was nothing but sophistication in that black cut-out dress and seriously bold blings!

Bella Thompson

Bella Thompson is truly THE moment. Wearing a custom Jerald Ignacio gown, the classic black pre-party look perfectly complements Bella’s brighter and extra red carpet ensemble. Let’s talk about that duality.

Bianca Umali

Bianca Umali is totally giving a golden goddess aura. She steals the show with a bronzed summer glow and an embellished ensemble by Joe San Antonio. Of course, let’s not forget the styling magic of John Paul Dizon that transformed Bianca into an absolute shining star.

Ruru Madrid

While he’s one of the Best Dressed Gentlemen of the GMA Gala, Ruru Madrid has one behind-the-scene look everyone’s gotta see. On Instagram, Ruru’s rocked an all-black ensemble by Filipina fashion designer Chynna Mamawal. With styling by David Milan, Ruru bagged Young Star of the Night Award.
