Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano have traipsed runways and the world arm-in-arm this year, always lovely, and always in style.
You can’t buy me love, but you can buy that DonBelle are loveteam royalty—and they dress like it, too. Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano have been booked and busy this year, what with traveling the world and starring in their new hit series Can’t Buy Me Love. But one thing they never fail to do despite their hectic schedule is serve looks every time, be it in an airport or at a gala, that compliment each other. These two artists can bring the heat in jeans or tuxedos, ballgowns or edgy leather dresses.
It was hard to choose which outfits they wore this year that were the most slay, because you can bet all their outfits are always massive joint slays, but we rounded up eight of their grandest, coolest, most stunning looks so far. No matter how amazing the pair looks this year, we know it only gets better from here.
VAMPIRIC ALLURE ON THE ASAP STAGE
Is it hot in here? The outfits DonBelle wore when they performed the Can’t Buy Me Love theme song You’ll Be Safe Here on ASAP Natin ‘To is absolutely stunning. Donny’s oxblood leather jacket perfectly paired with Belle’s two-piece, lace-up top and skirt with matching heels makes for an alluring, swoon-worthy matchy-matchy moment.
SPARKLING AT THE ABS-CBN BALL
When you Google “red carpet looks,” this DonBelle moment at the ABS-CBN Ball deserves to be in the top images. Belle’s glittering, sequined gold Michael Leyva gown was a gorgeous contrast to Donny’s sleek, all-black Louis Vuitton look.
DARNA & CAPTAIN BARBELL
Suddenly, I need to be saved. For Halloween this year, Donny and Belle channeled classic Filipino komik superheroes Captain Barbell and Darna. Their dedication to the roles as well as the perfect balance of modernity and timelessness in their homage to the Filipino heroes easily earned them top spots on people’s Best Halloween Costumes lists.
GEN Z REALNESS ON THE NYLON MANILA JUNE COVER
DonBelle brought bright, bold colors and youthful energy into our lives on the NYLON Manila fanzine issue last June! Styled by Adrianne Concepcion and John Lozano, Donny and Belle served main character realness on the cover.
STAR MAGICAL CHRISTMAS
Holiday Barbie and Ken showed up and showed out at the Star Magical Christmas event as Belle and Donny turned up the Christmas glam and channeled the spirit of the holidays in their bright and merry ‘fits.
COMFY-COOL AT THE AIRPORT
At the airport headed off to Europe, the two opted for classic, elevated casual looks. Belle’s two-piece pinstriped pantsuit and messy updo is style inspo fodder. This was before Can’t Buy Me Love even aired, but she was already giving Caroline Tiu energy. It’s trendy and to-die for, just like Donny’s knitted half-zip that looks like it’s cozy, perfect for a long flight.
At a Can’t Buy Me Love press conference, the couple served monochromatic elegance in white and off-white outfits. Belle donned a shimmery, sparkly white top with a silky, bejeweled miniskirt while Donny looked ever-dapper in a crisp linen suit.

Donny and Belle made bold, daring moves at the Star Magical Prom earlier this year, and it paid off! They looked like a million bucks (Belle’s Francis Libiran gown alone cost almost that much!). That night’s Prom King and Queen chose black-and-white for a classy, tried-and-true look, along with sheer lace and tiered ostrich feathers. Talk about head-turners.
