I haven't done a best-dressed list, although it's one type of blog post I enjoy from fellow bloggers. I think the Star Magic Ball 2012 is a good first-time post so blog friends from other countries can also get a glimpse of the local (Philippines) red carpet scene. :)
Star Magic is the talent arm of the broadcast company ABS-CBN. For 20 years, it has been home to the best of the Philippines' actors and actresses, both for film and television. This year, the talent center held its 6th Star Magic Ball and all the brightest stars of the industry went all out in black and white. Here are the best dressed ladies for me. (So far, no designer names were mentioned for each actress. I'll update when the info is made available.)
My fave for the night is Erich Gonzales in a Francis Libiran gown. Many of the girls went for the lace-and-sheer style, but Erich really pulled it off the best. The detailing of her gown stands out among the others.

It's hard to wear white to a ball without looking like you are at a wedding (which some of the actresses weren't able to avoid). Sometimes the simpler the better. Maricar's gown is my fave look in white.
Aside from black, lace and sheer, another common detail among the ladies' gowns was feather accents. Bea Alonzo went all out and wore a black raven-like gown.
