Who else is perfect to lead the red carpet ceremony of the ABS-CBN Ball (formerly known as Star Magic Ball) than Joey Mead King? 

The forever cool girl has accrued years of experience in all matters fashion and talking up a storm as a most wanted model and host.

The mannequin, who began her journey on the runway at 15 and currently hosts a lifestyle show for ABS-CBN, has that unknowable quality that makes everything she does, including what she wears, feel magical.

From ball gowns to jump suits, here are her greatest dressed-up hits, which may give us a hint of what she’ll wear on Saturday.  

We imagine this is what you get when you cross supermodel and superhero. Only King, who, in this still is shooting the promo for the ABS-CBN Ball with Rajo Laurel and Tim Yap, can pull off a column gown with a built-in cape.  


And surprise, she’s wearing sneakers. (We’re in love) 

The PMAP mannequin serves full-on glamour for the modeling association’s 30th anniversary. Also, pockets are cool.

One more, just because it’s so good. 

Here, she shows us that, even outside of a body-baring sheath (and off the red carpet), you can dress to thrill. Will she go the pants route for the ABS-CBN Ball?

A seasoned model knows how to follow the dress code, which, of course, for the 70th anniversary of sports car giant Ferarri, is lipstick red.   


And here, with Angie King, she dials it down a bit, but nevertheless holds attention in hothouse green.

Okay, back to regular programming: a show-stopping silver sheath. The slinky long bob completes the feel. 

Twinning with Ange in versions of the LBD to celebrate Pride Month. 

We're leaning on this exaggerated sweetheart neckline for the ABS-CBN Ball. This shape may just be her favorite, and we’re not complaining.  


How do you get a job where the uniform consists of Grecian dress, sexy hair, and lots of leg? 

Just going to remind everyone that Joey Mead is the original cool girl of Manila. Catch her live at the ABS-CBN Ball red carpet.
