Julia Barretto’s ‘coming-out’ party


Julia Barretto, the daughter of actors Dennis Padilla and Marjorie Barretto will be turning 18 on March 10.

For a girl who literally grew up in the midst of showbiz, she invites everyone to get to know her as a daughter, sister, friend, student, athlete or simply “Just Julia.” She said she wants to share the experience, to say goodbye to childhood as she aims to be a mature and a more responsible individual.

Recently, Julia reconciled with her father who will lead the traditional 18 roses ceremony. She also personally invited her aunts Gretchen and Claudine in the hope that it might pave the way for their reconciliation.

The other men who will giver roses at her debut include Matteo Guidicelli, Rayver Cruz, Enchong Dee, Khalil Ramos, Robi Domingo, Sam Concepcion, Dominic Roque, Leon Barretto, Mark Barretto, John Barretto, Cholo Barretto, Jason Soong, Mark Soong, Miguel Barretto, John Sweet Lapus, Enrique Gil, and Inigo Pascual.

Her 18 candles include Dani Barretto, Claudia Barretto, Patita Tumpalan, Erich Gonzales, Alora Sasam, Natalia Ortega, Nicole Barretto, Cris Navarro, Marissa Kalaw, Pokwang, RB Chanco, Lala Flores, Denise Heredia, Coy Barretto, Ella Pangilinan, Liz Uy, Janella Salvador, Liza Soberano, and Maja Salvador.

The white, gray and silver-themed party will be held at the posh Rizal Ballroom of the Makati Shangri-La Hotel.
