Julia Barretto Turns 18

Julia Barretto Debut PartyTeen star Julia Barretto celebrated her 18th birthday in a grand debut party held last night at the Rizal Ballroom of the Makati Shangri-La Hotel. She wore a red ball gown designed by Dubai-based Filipino designer Michael Cinco.

Present at the black-and-white-themed event were Julia's aunt Claudine Barretto and grand parents Miguel and Inday Barretto, who had been estranged from the young actress for years due to the controversial Barretto family squabble. While invited, another aunt, Gretchen Barretto, opted to fly to London a few days before Julia's party to celebrate her own 45th birthday with her only daughter Dominique Cojuangco. Gretchen and Marjorie are rumored to be at odds because of the former's fondness for young star Liza Soberano.

Also present was Julia's father, comedian Dennis Padilla, who only recently reconciled with his daughter. Padilla reportedly felt bad when Julia sought legal options to drop Baldivia as her last name. A week before her party, however, Julia reached out and invited her father to her celebration. She also announced during a press conference that she will no longer change her legal last name. Dennis was Julia's first dance at the party.

Other celebrities sighted at the event are Richard Gomez, Lucy Torres, Ben Chan, Karen Davilla, Pokwang, Megan Young, Ruffa Guttierez, Iza Calzado and John Lapus. In full force are other ABS-CBN and Star Magic talents inlcuding Kim Chiu, Erich Gonzales, Matteo Guidicelli, Daniel Padilla, Kathryn Bernardo, Jane Oineza, Janella Salvador, Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano. Newcomer Inigo Pascual, Julia's co star in the upcoming movie, Para sa Hopeless Romantic, was her last dance.
