The Kapuso Network ended the month of July with a bang! Celebrating its 72nd anniversary through a Thanksgiving Gala held last July 30. As expected, the stars shone bright as ever donning their best Old Hollywood glamor looks for the night. In that evening, a sea of black and white dazzling gowns, an arsenal of faux-fur coats and bedazzled heels paraded onto the halls of Shangri-La The Fort Grand Ballroom. A fun and fashion-filled celebration with a nod to Old Hollywood as the official motif of the event.
The notion of glamour in Old Hollywood is typically all about glittering dresses, fur coats, voluminous hairstyles, and bold-red lips. These are the glam looks that strode the red carpet back then. However, in 2022 an array of Old Hollywood with an element of contemporary style and glamor stands out among the rest. For the stars at the GMA Thanksgiving Gala, some were almost there in bringing exquisite Old Hollywood glamor while some undeniably scored a success!
We handpicked the best looks that stood out and elevated. And they are nothing but with polished and refined choices from hair and makeup, the dress itself and down to the shoes they’re wearing.
