ABS-CBN Ball 2018: What if Luke and Shine (MayWard) went together?

We're two days away from ABS-CBN Ball 2018, and it's Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber's big screen characters' turn for their very own red carpet makeover!

For MayWard, we're focusing on their debut feature, the endlessly romantic and hilarious "Loving in Tandem" which made a mark last year. In "LIT", they played Luke and Shine, an unlikely couple who are exactly what our enemies-to-friends-to-lovers dreams are made of. These two move in a world where ball gowns and tuxedos aren't even a possibility, but why not give them the ABS-CBN Ball movie star treatment they deserve?

Keep on reading to see our three ABS-CBN Ball 2018 outfit pegs for Luke and Shine! 'Yung mapapasigaw ka na lang ng "jowa! jowa! jowa!" 'pag nakita mo. 😉

Option 1:

We're going full movie star realness for this one.

A cream gown that's made purely of romance and silk like that of Olivia Wilde's 2008 Primetime Emmy's dress, would be perfect for Shine. It's gorgeous, plus its skirt would definitely allow Shine some major dancing capabilities. We have our priorities straight around here.

As for the balikbayan cutie, we chose a three-piece suit a la Zac Efron, because who doesn't love a little three-piece suit moment? 

Option 2:

We're giving Luke and Shine a little spice for our second choice. 

For the lady, this orangey-red mermaid gown would be a bold statement. Just on the right side of sexy, it will show off her stare-worthy shoulders and svelte figure. And if her date showed up in an equally fiery suit? That'll be a headline-grabbing ABS-CBN Ball moment!

Option 3:

For our last option, we're giving Shine a pale pink beauty (that we could totally see Maymay wearing in real life, actually) that's an elegant take on the "crop top" dress. For Luke, a double-breasted suit similar to Tom Holland's would definitely land him in the Best Dressed List. 

Which outfit would you choose for Luke and Shine? Tell us in the comments section down below!

And just in case you missed it: Edward recently staged a super sweet ABS-CBN Ball proposal for Maymay, and she said yes. ;)

You can watch the proposal, posted by Edward on Instagram last September 25, here:

The ABS-CBN Ball is being held for the benefit of Bantay Bata 163 Children's Village and its relaunch.

After "Loving in Tandem", Maymay and Edward would go on to appear in the horror-comedy "DOTGA: Da One That Ghost Away" topbilled by Kim Chiu and Ryan Bang. They were also part of the hit Kathryn Bernardo-Daniel Padilla fantasy series "La Luna Sangre" and is slated to headline their very own television series soon. 

Also in their future is ABS-CBN Films, Star Cinema's official entry to the 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival, the Vice Ganda-led "Fantastica: The Princesses, The Prince, and The Perya".
