Scenes from GMA's SPARKLE SPELL 2023

Friday, October 27, 2023

If you've been seeing them all over social media, here's a glimpse on what happened last October 22 at the SPARKLE SPELL, the heavily anticipated and star studded Halloween party of Sparkle GMA Artist Center. Donned in their Halloween costumes, they went to a grand venue called XYLO at the Palace in BGC.

Mind you, each individual GMA star actually thought about what they wanted to wear, getting to fulfill their Halloween fantasies for one night, much to the amusement of their peers, GMA executives and the media. They all got to the Black Carpet where hosts Martin Javier, Shuvee Etrata, Migs Almendras and gorgeous Janeena Chan were tasked to ask about what they wore in detail that evening. This was all broadcasted in Sparkle's social channels such as TikTok, Facebook and on YouTube. It was the talk of the town, and got Sparkle Spell 2023 in the day's trending topics as fan groups also cheered on their favorite stars that night.

Of course, the night wouldn't be complete without seeing Sparkle's brightest like 5 Breakups and a Romance star Alden Richards. For those, who are BarDa fans, they came in their best Anime and GOT characters, pretty good to see them in one place (be sure to also watch their show!). Aside from them, your favorites Julie Anne San Jose (who just came back from Israel OMG), Kyline Alcantara, Voltes V's Jamie  Ysabel Ortega and good looking Miguel Tanfelix (Mad Hatter) plus the sexy and sultry Sanya Lopez who just went in the venue and had fun with their co-stars.

Much of them who really made an effort didn't go empty handed as various awards were given to them. I AM Worldwide gave Miguel Tanfelix and Jillian Ward (aside from the Urban Smile Most Spooktacular Smile Award) the I AMazing Looks of the Night. Sanya got Juju Glow's Enchantingly Fresh Star of the Night, while Kyline Alcantara got the O Wow! Outfit from food brand Oishi (and yes she looked awesome!). Teen loveteam Sofia Pablo and Allen Ansay had a Barbie and Ken themed costume, which got them TikTok's Crowd Favorites. Miguel and Ysabel took the Fabulously Scary Costumes of the Night award with their Alice in Wonderland themed costumes, it was a fitting Voltes V Legacy reunion out there too. Real life lovers Rayver Cruz and Julie Anne San Jose did a Scooby Doo number, it was fun to se Fred and Daphne personified (if you grew up watching the series, they did good!).

Using his muscles to good use, Derric Monasterio got into character and did Achilles, complete with a shield, sword, leather and a live horse OMG, which also won him Black Carpet Stunner Award that night. That was super deserved!

Giving multiple Stars of the Night awards to Barbie Forteza, Liezel Lopez, Martin Del Rosario, Joaquin Domagoso, and the incomparable Sassa Gurl was just a lovely gesture, they did the work with the outfits they made and yes, with a socially relevant statement on some of them, it was all so impressive! Voltes V Legacy stars Miguel Tanfelix, Ysabel Ortega, Radson Flores, Matt Lozano and Raphael Landicho planned well wearing the Alice in Wonderland themed outfits, making them a fitting winner for the Sparkle Stars of the Night Award. They did their research well, and seriously did crazy good!

This event wouldn't be possible without the help of the countless presenters and sponsors like Oishi, Juju glow, Caltrate, Urban Smiles, IAM Worldwide, Avignon Clinic, JLA Seafoods, Sweet Comfort Events Management (who coordinated the actual event), TikTok Philippines, the fabulous Gideon Hermosa and his team from the House of Hermosa, Niceprint Photos (where these shots came from). They also send their thanks to Air Asia, Cebuana Lhullier, Clinique, Premier Drip, Kemans, Merlion Entertainment and Philip Stein, everyone who made Sparkle Spell 2023 a resounding success!

Thanks for letting us see SPARKLE SPELL this 2023! :) This was really so much fun! So, which one was your favorite?
