that Won the Internet
at this Year’s
Star Magic Ball
By Blair Perez
Star Magic Ball is like our version of the Oscars’ red carpet: everyone raves about the attendees, their looks, and of course, the attires. It’s an annual fashion battle between stars. But aside from this, Star Magic Ball as a whole is a much-awaited gathering of some of the most talked-about personalities in the entertainment industry. People tweet, fans wait for the next Instagram stories and everyone would keep tabs on Facebook for the latest updates.
ICYMI, here are the highlights from this year’s ball that won the internet:
Bela Padilla defending Arci Munoz

Just a few weeks ago, Arci Munoz was revealed to have had a nose job and people bashed her for it. Fast forward to the Star Magic Ball, of course, she was bombarded by the press with questions about her “new look”…until Bela Padilla, who was standing a few inches from Arci, turned to the press and said, “Can we focus on how beautiful she is tonight?” Bela just earned our hearts for that one!
Ex-couple Heart Evangelista and Daniel Matsunaga’s interaction
Beautiful moments from Star Magic Ball 💫 Heart Evangelista and Ex-Boyfriend Daniel Matsunaga #StarMagicBall2017
Posted by Push on Sunday, October 1, 2017
A lot of ex-couples have crossed paths in the event, including Heart Evangelista and Daniel Matsunaga whose interaction was caught on cam. They greeted each other with high five and smiles, and their friendly rapport and expressions were just too cute!
Kapuso stars gracing the night
While the attendees consist mostly of ABS-CBN stars, former Star Magic talents who are now with GMA Network were also invited to the event. Among those who were present were Kristine Hermosa, Megan Young, Mikael Daez, Heart Evangelista and Empress Schuck.

Remember when Maris Racal became a meme with her fierce look? She’s back at it again at the Star Magic Ball! This time, her on-screen love team, Inigo Pascual tried to calm her down, as seen in the photos. She just laughed the memes off and even tweeted the photos with a funny caption. What a sport!
Two Barrettos in One Venue

We have no idea what exactly was going on when this photo was taken, but it seems like the two Barrettos were in some sort of argument based on their facial expressions. Later, Claudine Barretto’s interviews would prove otherwise; she even wants JoshLia to do a remake of her hit movie with Rico Yan, Dahil Mahal na Mahal Kita.
Pia Wurtzbach and Maja Salvador’s Face-off
Lagot na si Pia. Ayan na si Ivy Aguas. 😂 pic.twitter.com/nddYqqOo2h

Pia Wurtzbach turned heads at the ball with her new hairstyle, but not Maja Salvador, who looks unimpressed—at least looking at these photos. Not even the former Miss Universe can please the one and only, Ivy Aguas!
Liza Soberano and Pia Wurtzbach’s Photo Together
PIA WURTZBACH AND LIZA SOBERANO??? TWO QUEENS IN ONE PICTURE?? YESZSS?? pic.twitter.com/qTlLRxFnv4

Just a few months ago, Liza portrayed Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach for “Maalala Mo Kaya.” Pia even praised Liza’s beauty, saying she has what it takes to be a beauty queen. Are we seeing two Miss Universe in one photo?
Finally met the ageless @AliceDixson who is now officially a Kapamilya! If I remember it correctly… this is her first #StarMagicBall2017 appearance 😊 Welcome back! @lifestyletvph pic.twitter.com/rqIUCHnhTs

The ageless beauty of Alice Dixson was seen at the ball, and she is now officially an ABS-CBN artist! She’ll have a new show and a movie, and we cannot wait to see more of her soon.
