It was the biggest party for social media personalities as E! Entertainment hosted the E! Bloggers Ball for the second year.
With everyone on their phones sharing their experiences online, it was no surprise that the event held at City of Dreams Manila became a trending topic on twitter that night, making it one of the most viewed and followed events in the country.
As soon as my hubby and I arrived, we were in for a treat as acclaimed photographer Dookie Ducay took our portraits in a specially designed booth.
There was also a 360-degree photo area as well as several backdrops inspired by the “vapor lights” theme specially created for those Instagram-worthy photos.
E! News Singapore was there to ask a couple of bloggers about their style for the glitzy night. I was one of the lucky people who had the opportunity to share my thoughts. They may have asked me about fashion, but I still ended talking more about makeup, haha!
Btw, a huge shout-out to Anna Vanessa Lo for doing my hair and makeup. 🙂
Before the start of the program, you’d see the bloggers, vloggers, Youtubers, and instagrammers socialize and have a great time. It was one night where everyone dressed up, let loose, and most importantly, celebrate the craft.
This year, E! gave out awards to influencers who have made the most impact not only to their followers but to their peers as well.
Among the awards handed out were: Look Who’s Trending Male – Wil Dasovich, Female – Jennica Sanchez; Breakthrough Blogger of the Year Male– Dee Gee Razon, Female —Nina Nuguid; Blogger Groupie – The Soshal Network (Vivian Tan, Faye Condez & Camille Buhain); Blogger Icon of the Year for Travel – The Poor Traveler (Yosh Dimen & Vins Carlos); Blogger Icon of the Year for Food – The Fat Kid Inside (Erwan Heussaff); and Blogger Icon of the Year for Fashion – Janina Vela. The Best Dressed Award of the Night went to Kim Cruz (Female) and Daniel Marsh (Male).
The winners for each category were selected by an esteemed panel of judges comprising of social media icon and TV host Bianca Gonzalez-Intal, Nuffnang Country Manager and Yugatech founder Abe Olandres; Our Awesome Planet founder Anton Diaz; Marketing Director of Ever Bilena, Olive Padilla; Rex Atienza and Jay Sarmiento of the Stylelist Inc.
