Gabbi Garcia promises to act more "ladylike" now that she is already 18 years old.
Adding to the glamor and grandeur of Gabbi Garcia's 18th birthday celebration was her star-studded guest list.
Dubbed #SincerelyGabbi, the Kapuso star's special night held on December 6, four days after her actual birthday, was indeed memorable, thanks to these people who trooped to the Manila Marriott Hotel's grand ballroom.
Mark Bumgarner's gown made Gabbi the brightest belle of the ball. He collaborated with the young actress' stylist Kat Cruz-Villanueva.
Bumgarner told Preview.ph, "Kat and I wanted something classic but modern, and formal but fun.
"For her main gown, Gabbi wanted something in silver white, so I designed a ball gown with an eight-panel skirt and high neckline to emphasize her beautiful profile.
"It consisted of layers of tulle, and was painstakingly encrusted with Swarovski crystals."
Gabbi later on changed into this emerald serpentina gown, which was also designed by Mark. According to her stylist, this green gown paid tribute to her role Alena in Encantadia.
For her after-party, she donned a Martin Bautista "draped silk in a top and skirt combo in jewel tone reddish pink" creation.
Jason delos Reyes did her makeup, while Mark Rosales was in charge of her hair.
Floral and event designer Teddy Manuel transformed Gabbi's debut venue into a modern Zen.
In a previous interview, the Kapuso actress said she wanted her theme to be "very minimalist."
