Maris Racal

The Can’t Buy Me Love star was a vision of ethereal beauty, clad in a beguiling blue gown by designer Russell May Cordero. Straight out of Cinderella, the two-piece dress was made more mod with the addition of bows, white gloves, and a blushed beauty look. “I’m a deconstructed Cinderella,” Maris shares during her interview at the ivory carpet. “A modern twist to the fairytale and my hair is actually inspired by Audrey Hepburn.”

Dalia Verde

With stunning hair and modern makeup, the starlet’s look was bold; a statement of a pop of red amidst the pastels of the theme. But it was the illusion of a drape falling seamlessly over Dahlia’s bodice that finished the serve, the slit an elegant touch. The overall effect was otherworldly, an image of Elena of Avalor or Snow White.

Xyriel Manabat

This standout young celebrity was a true princess, deviating joyfully from the modern everyday life to enter the fantasies of fables and mystical dreams in a shimmering halter-cut, semi-backless gown in shimmering blues, pinks, and golds. The dip hem dress Xyriel wore offered the glamor of the long gown and the comfort of a short dress, and the trail followed her figure elegantly as she walked the ivory carpet. Xyriel embodied an ethereal fairy reminiscent of those in Sleeping Beauty.

Vivoree was modern-day Princess Aurora in a pink dress that sported crystal embellishments—giving her look a nice shine under the lights. The dress continues on with crystals flowing down to the waist, but the scene-stealer of her look was definitely the draped cape from the disattached sleeves falling gracefully on her shoulders. It was a nice touch of extravagance and gave a nice dramatic contrast to the real-life Sleeping Beauty.

Krystal Brimmer

At the ivory carpet, this young star exhibited her interpretation of the classic The Little Mermaid in a blue off-the-shoulder dress with sequins adorned at the bustier, and with petals of water decorating the skirt. Krystal elevated her dress with a tiara and a big blue bow at the waist around the back that encapsulated a modern princess feel.
