Star Magic Ball 2009: John Lloyd had Luis as his escort

Dressed in their formal attires and most elegant gowns, the talents from ABS-CBN's Star Magic gathered for the 3rd Annual Star Magic Ball last night, August 30, at the Makati Shangri-la Hotel.

Even non-Star Magic talents and non-Kapamilya stars were there to show some support to Star Magic, the biggest talent management and training center in the country.

Of course, people are very much interested to know who's with who during the ball.

Did Sam Milby attend the party with a new girl?

Definitely not this time. For the third year, Sam Milby escorted Anne Curtis to the ball to the delight of their fans. So, definitely, they're "back in each other's arms" (at least for a night).

There was this rumor before the event started that John Lloyd Cruz will have Ruffa Gutierrez as his date for the Star Magic Ball.

Well, sorry LloydFanatics, Ruffa brought his brother Raymond with her while John Lloyd was most of the time seen with leading man Luis Manzano (in promotion of course for their upcoming film "In My Life").

Last year, Luis was with Angel Locsin. (I'm still convinced that Luis' recent breakup with Angel is just a gimmick.)

How about comebacking loveteam Jericho Rosales and Kristine Hermosa? Jericho was with himself while Kristine was with rumored boyfriend Oyo Sotto.

Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson

The Star Magic Ball 2009 also marks the celebration of Star Magic's 17th anniversary.

That means to say, Star Circle Batch 1 member Rico Yan would have been celebrating his 17th anniversary in showbiz this year if not for his untimely death in 2002.
