Kim Chiu was 17 the first time she walked the red carpet of the first Star Magic Ball held on August 5, 2006.
It was more than a year after she won the first Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition.

It was a month before the release of her first major movie project, I've Fallen For You, which also starred her then-screen partner Gerald Anderson.
That evening, she was poised to become the television's next big thing, and showed that she also was the fashion world's most promising.
