Leila Alcasid is looking forward to her first Star Magic Ball.
“Very excited!” she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during a short catch-up at the Close-Up Fresh Attraction event last September 28, in Bonifacio Global City.
“I don’t know what to expect, but yeah, it’s gonna be fun…
“Meeting people that I am a fan of! Just getting to be with my friends, spending time with a lot of people.
“It’ll be a good time.”
The daughter of singer-songwriter Ogie Alcasid and former beauty queen Michelle van Eimeren chose designer and family friend Cheetah Rivera to design her Star Magic Ball gown.
“We have a very close relationship with Cheetah. She designs a lot of outfits for my stepmom, for different work things.
“We trust her a lot.”
What’s Leila’s gown going to look like?
The 19-year-old blogger teased, “It’s white and, I guess, a little bit floral-y is what I’ll say.”
STYLE PEG. When asked about her personal fashion pegs, Leila had three celebrities in mind.
From the international modeling scene, Leila picked the Hadid sisters, Gigi and Bella.
She told PEP.ph, “I love how they dress, especially for events, red-carpet events. They always have the nicest gowns.
“So I really love everything they wear.”
Among the local celebrities, Leila named Kathryn Bernardo.
“I love Kathryn Bernardo. She’s my favorite!
“I love that all of her looks look really feminine, very girly. I’m very much into that.
“Nice, light lang, nothing too out there.”
And meeting Kathryn at the Star Magic Ball is another reason she's excited.
“I’ll get a picture with her!”
Kathryn recently donned a Cheetah Rivera design herself.
