Anne Curtis' 33rd Birthday Party Was Every 90s Kid's Dream Come True
She may have turned 33, but Anne's weekend birthday bash was every bit inspired by the 90s!
Everything was themed to emulate the decade that defined Anne's teenage years, from MTV playlists to silver screen favorites and fashion flashbacks to nostalgic table treats and trinkets.
The birthday girl was the queen of the night and wowed her guests with a Winona Ryder-esque velvet spaghetti-strapped dress in bright violet. Channelling the quintessential edginess all the coolest 90s girls had, Anne accessorized with a black choker detailed with beads and an oversized cross pendant and matching dark nail polish. Staying true to her quirky style, the It's Showtime host also added multiple stacked plastic rainbow bangles (or were they slinkies?) on her right arm to as the night wore on to add a stroke of playfulness.
Her star-studded guest list included BFFs Vhong Navarro, Jhong Hilario, Vice Ganda, Karylle, Sarah Geronimo and beau Matteo Guidicelli, Dr. Vicki Belo, Cristalle Belo-Pitt, Tim Yap, Iza Calzado, Antoinette Taus, and BJ Pascual. Anne's little sister Jasmine was also in attendance with her boyfriend Jeff Ortega. Yes, they all came dressed as 90s kids!
Vicki was rocking an Alicia Silverstone-inspired preppy style from Clueless, Jasmine and Jeff looked like campus sweethearts in effortless 90s fashion, and Tim Yap turned heads with a coordinated outfit done in big, bold colors and patterns seen on all the runways during that decade.
Also worth mentioning are Anne's bedazzled birthday boots she wore in a casual birthday shoot! She paired the thigh-high Yves Saint Laurent sparklers decked out with 3,000 rhinestones with an asymmetrical mini dress. The boots, which have been worn by Rihanna, Beyoncé, sisters Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, and even Celine Dion, cost a heart-stopping $10,000, or a little over half a million pesos.
Not to be forgotten is Anne's husband, restaurateur and digital content creator Erwan Heussaff, who showed off his toned physique at the party in a look inspired by 90s bad boy, Johnny Depp. But more than being Anne's stellar date for the evening, the newly married man made waves with the couple's fans with his touching tribute to his wife.
On Instagram, Erwan posted a montage of clips of Anne during their many travels. She's featured digging into her favorite snacks, surveying the beautiful vistas in a destination, and simply looking at Erwan lovingly through the camera lens. Part of his sweet caption reads, "There is a certain way that you look at me that's hard to describe but that will always let me know if we are where we are supposed to be.... This is your 8th birthday that we celebrate together, yet it always feels so new and exhilarating."
There is nothing more I enjoy in life than watching you have a good time, stuff your face and be merry. There is a certain way that you look at me that's hard to describe but that will always let me know if we are where we are supposed to be. Now that you're my wife, my job is to make sure that all those things become constants on the road ahead. This is your 8th birthday that we celebrate together, yet it always feels so new and exhilarating. In the words of the King "Well, I love you, for what you are I even love you For what you may become" @annecurtissmith
With a husband as loving as Erwan and friends and family as fun as hers, Anne's bound to have many, many more memorable birthdays to look forward to.
Happy birthday, Anne!
