Cassy and Mavy Legaspi Oscarsthemed 18th birthday party
Cassy and Mavy Legaspi’s 18th birthday was a night filled with glitz and glam.
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
In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (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 PEP.ph, “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 PEP.ph 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.
