Power couple DongYan reigns supreme at GMA Gala 2023
The GMA Gala 2023 stands as an evening to remember, with A-lister names and real life couples making the night more interesting with their commanding attires—or simply with just their mere presence.
Power couple Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes have commanded the event with conviction, as they went for an elegant white and black ensemble. The real-life partner was later hailed as the “Couple of the Night.”
Recently engaged couple Bea Alonzo and Dominic Roque were also no lesser than a spectacle as they catch everyone’s eyes, ultimately securing the title “Sparkling Couple of the Night.”
Just one of the many anticipations for the night is Kapuso actress Barbie Forteza’s appearance and who she might just be with between her on-screen partner David Licauco or real-life lover Jak Roberto.
However, Barbie chose to walk solo, which then left Jak and David walking the red carpet on their own.
David Licauco also walked solo on the red carpet.
