Their guests, all dressed to the nines, trooped to their grand birth­day party on Satur­day night, Jan­uary 12, at One Can­vas Events Place in Makati City.

Cassy and Mavy of­fi­cially turned 18 on

Jan­uary 6.

In an ex­clu­sive in­ter­view with (Philip­pine En­ter­tain­ment Por­tal), the twins shared why they picked the “Os­cars” as the theme of their birth­day bash.

Cassy said it was her brother's idea, and the in­spi­ra­tion ac­tu­ally came from their par­ents Carmina Vil­laroel and Zoren Le­gaspi's wed­ding.

The Ka­puso teen star said, “Peo­ple say my par­ents' wed­ding is iconic. I wanted to do the same which is to make some­thing dif­fer­ent be­cause you don't re­ally hear much about a twin, a boy and a girl, cel­e­brat­ing their 18th birth­day. It's not typ­i­cal.

“We de­cided to stick with the idea to do some­thing dif­fer­ent.”

It can be re­mem­bered that Zoren sur­prised Carmina with an on­the-spot pro­posal and a lav­ish wed­ding cer­e­mony in Novem­ber 2012, at Fern­brook Gar­dens, Muntinlupa.

Mavy fur­ther said, “It's an Os­car's awards night­themed party. There will def­i­nitely be a red car­pet.

“We chose that theme be­cause when you see it, peo­ple dress up, and there will be a lot of col­ors.”

But to set the ex­pec­ta­tions, Mavy, who wore a pair of sneak­ers, said that their party was not re­ally so strict about the dress code.

“We took that idea kasi Cassy and I aren't re­ally up­tight and for­mal. We just like to have fun.”

The twins were very “hands-on” when it comes to the prepa­ra­tions, which took weeks.

Cassy re­marked, “Yeah. Even with ev­ery lit­tle de­tail.”

They thanked their par­ents for be­ing there dur­ing the plan­ning stage.

The debu­tante said, “They're very hands-on too. We some­times can't de­cide on our own. If we want to get dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive, we just ask our par­ents.”


The twins wore cre­ations of fash­ion de­signer Fran­cis Libi­ran.

Cassy looked el­e­gant in her gold gown with a long train filled with petal-like ap­pliques.

Mavy, on the other hand, was clad in a con­tem­po­rary mid­night blue wrap blazer and a pair of trousers with art deco prints.

Fran­cis also de­signed Carmina's pur­ple gown and Zoren's royal blue suit.

Over 200 guests were in­vited to their party.

And hav­ing all of their loved ones gather un­der one roof was some­thing the twins looked for­ward to.

Mavy told, “What I'm look­ing for­ward to is see­ing the peo­ple that played, and are still play­ing im­por­tant roles in our lives. I think that's go­ing to be the most spe­cial one.”

Cassy added, “It's also like see­ing your en­tire world in one room.”

Some celebri­ties in­cluded on their guest list were Ka­pam­ilya stars Kathryn Bernardo and Sofia An­dres.

The twins' cousin Dani Bar­retto and her sis­ter Clau­dia were also present.

Cassy and Mavy also in­vited their fel­low Ka­puso tal­ents Migo Ade­cer, Ky­line Al­can­tara, Miguel Tan­fe­lix, and the Cruz brothers, Rayver and Rod­jun.

In­stead of the tra­di­tional 18 Roses, Cassy gave spe­cial awards to 18 at­ten­dees to show how grate­ful they are for hav­ing them in their jour­ney.

That was also Mavy's idea.

He told via email, “Peo­ple are call­ing it as the twins' de­but, but as a brother, I also want to make it as Cassy's de­but.

“The idea I came up with was 18 awards in­stead of 18 roses. They go up on stage and they will give a speech.

“I will award some­one, but I don't re­ally want them to say a speech about me. It's more on me say­ing thank you to them.”

“Yeah be­cause in a way, they're also the ones at­tend­ing.”

The twins also agreed on do­ing some­thing un­usual for their guests.

Cassy said, “Usu­ally, a!er the awards be­sides red­car­pet pho­tos, they al­ways post pic­tures of cele­bri es in the a!er‐party.

“Now, we're go­ing to sur­prise our guests with an a!er‐party. The lights are go­ing to turn off, and then they're go­ing to be neon. It’s an a!er‐party in an in­stant.”

Carmina Vil­laroel and Zoren Le­gaspi's twins, Cassy and Mavy, cel­e­brated their 18th birth­day with an Os­cars-themed party held on Satur­day night, Jan­uary 12. Cassy and Mavy of­fi­cially turned 18 on Jan­uary 6.
