Gabbi Garcia was truly the Belle of the Ball when she entered Manila Marriott Hotel's grand ballroom where her #SincerelyGabbi party was held on December 6, four days after her actual birthday.
Her silver Swarovski-studded ball gown accentuated her tiny waist and swan-like neck.
She also looked taller and, in the words of her designer Mark Bumgarner, she shone "the brightest."
Her barely-there makeup was done by Jason delos Reyes, while her hair was styled by Mark Anthony Rosales.
During the latter part of the celebration, she changed into this emerald gown, also designed by Bumgarner.
Here's a preview to Gabbi's grand celebration for her 18th birthday.
1. "Modern Minimalist" set-up by Teddy Manuel
To achieve what the debutante had in mind, Manuel wrote on Instagram that he styled the venue using "geometric lines and high fashion theme."
The tablescape had white Equadorian roses, viburnum, calla lilies, and pine leaves.

5. Where is Ruru?
He may not have been her escort (he was her 17th rose), but they were inseparable from the moment Gabbi made her grand entrance.
Look who was waiting for her at the foot of the stairs...
This "kiss" was simply sweet.
Official photos will be released soon.
