Claudia Barretto may have turned 18 last July 26, but the young Barretto opted to celebrate her debut this August to make sure all her friends, who were on their school vacay, would be able to attend her special day. And if her pre-debut photos were a telltale sign of anything, it was to expect that her big day would be nothing short of classic and chic.
While there's no doubt that the setup was taken straight out of Pinterest, Claudia's grand entrance was simply magical, too!
Just like her prom dress, Claudia opted for a nude ball gown, this time made by designer Mark Bumgarner. She accessorized the TDF dress with a pair of chandelier earrings, two dainty bracelets on her left wrist, and a ring to boot.
For the second half of the debut, Claudia swapped her dreamy frock for a fringe dress and performed her single "Stay." She even hit the stage with friend Kiana Valenciano to belt out a tune!
As for her beauty look, Claudia kept it simple, too. With the help of hairstylist Mark Familiara, they ditched the usual curls and big headpieces, and instead opted for a sleek, center-parted, low bun to focus on the debutante's glowing face.
Makeup artist Owen Sarmiento kept Claudia's brow and eye game strong, but the rest of her look subtle with a clean, barely-there makeup, proving that even the simplest makeup, when done right, is stronger and bolder than an OTT look.
Happy Birthday, Claudia! You looked every bit of a princess on your big night!
