Sofia Pablo's gown is probably last GMA Thanksgiving Gala's shiniest.
It's because of its 34,000-plus manually-embedded crystals.
Sofia's designer, AJ Javier, told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) he first drew inspiration from an old Hollywood icon for the young Kapuso actress's gown.
"When they said 'Old Hollywood,' we checked Audrey Hepburn."
AJ referenced the Hollywood actress's famous look in the 1961 movie Breakfast At Tiffany's for the Kapuso ball's theme or motif.
"Then when we thought about Audrey Hepburn, we thought about Givenchy, Dior, so we got her [Sofia] very classic silhouette, it's a very ball gown, something in that line.
"But we wanted it to look now, modern. Something that will be timeless, so we added crystals. We added, in total around 34 thousand crystals individually glued. So isa-isa," AJ told PEP.
Gliding towards the GMA ball, Sofia was escorted that night by her onscreen partner Allen Ansay donned in a Francis Libiran suit.
