Now the men: singles at the Star Magic Ball 2013 red carpet

MANILA, Philippines - ABS-CBN's annual Star Magic Ball took place last Sept 7, Saturday, at Fairmont Makati. Red carpet arrivals began at around 6pm and peaked at around 8pm, shortly before the ballroom program was scheduled to start.

Rappler live blogged the event.

We spotted couples and single ladies at the red carpet. Single men strolled casually, either wearing "a smile" when we asked them who they were wearing, a repeat outfit from the 2012 ball or, in the case of John "Sweet" Lapus, an intricate couture ensemble by a famed Cebuano designer.
