What's Inside A Ball Emergency Kit? A Celebrity Stylist Spills

It involves things like Leukoplast, Band-Aids, and diamond studs!

Excitement surrounding the ABS-CBN Ball has gone fever pitch, and we have to admit—a lot of it is because we're wondering what our favorite celebrities will turn up in on the red carpet. Who's going to wear a Terno? Who will go the Maria Clara route? Whatever it is they decide, we know it'll be a fashion extravaganza—a feast for the eyes!

This team must work in harmony in order to achieve a stellar look worthy of getting on the coveted Best Dressed list.

The options are endless. But the time arrives when they must decide on the look, give it their best shot, and hope for the best!
