We hope for a similar outcome for On the Wings of Love stars James Reid and Nadine Lustre a.k.a. JaDine—a healthy fashion match-up with KathNiel, most likely.
It will not be James’s first time to attend the ball, but this year will be the first time he and Nadine are walking the carpet together.
Another couple everyone is excited to see are Daniel Matsunaga and Erich Gonzales.
The Spartan pair have made everyone giddy over their relationship since they first opened up about it on Kris TV.

There had been secret romances at the ball as when Bea and Gerald Anderson left the event holding hands in 2010.
Gerald attended the ball with Kim, while it was the first time Bea came with Zanjoe Marudo.
SWEET SURPRISES. Who can say which couple will make the headlines at this year’s Star Magic Ball?
People were surprised to see Yan Asuncion kneeling before Yeng Constantino in 2013. Many thought his gesture was a proposal, but it was only a display of affection.
The couple announced their engagement the following year and married in early 2015.
