EXCLUSIVE: The ABS-CBN Ball 2018—Getting Ready With Erich Gonzales
Erich Gonzales gave Metro.Style an exclusive peek of her room, as she was getting ready for the red carpet at the ABS-CBN Ball last weekend. Surrounded by her glam team, the actress was clearly happy and excited to dress up for the biggest celebrity event of the year.
Since she has been gracing this annual Ball for many years now, the challenge for Erich and her glam team is to always create an overall look that Erich would feel stylish and comfortable in and, ultimately, land a spot (or even top!) the best-dressed lists. Their preparations were all worth it in the end, because Erich was named as Metro's best-dressed female star of the night.
Asked how she prepared for the Ball, Erich said, "Honestly, I just trust my team so much. Ever since it's all about trust." With the help of fashion stylists Kim and Boop Yap, makeup artist RB Chanco, and hairstylist John Valle, all of whom she has been working with for so long, Erich looked beautiful, chic, and radiant in her old Hollywood glam-inspired gown.
The designer of her gown, Vania Romoff, was also present, to help her muse get ready for the Ball. Vania reveals that she, in fact, created two white gowns for Erich: a classic ball gown and one that's as elegant but sultrier. Erich wore the latter, and looked amazing in it!
Complementing her off-shoulder, form-fitting gown, which had more drama with the ball skirt add-on, was what RB calls "barely there, next to nothing" makeup and neat updo.
