From glitzy metallic suits to bold, psychedelic prints, A-Listers show that when it comes to celebrity party style, statement dressing is here to stay
It’s already the holidays as far as the Philippines is concerned. As the country with the longest Christmas season, trees and lights are up by November, with gift shopping and parties starting even earlier. Coming off one of the longest lockdowns in the world, Filipinos are ready to party—and many are looking to their favorite celebrities for style inspiration. Thankfully, the stars did not disappoint.
Those looking for joy-inducing dressing might want to take a cue from Dua Lipa’s psychedelic print outfit. Wearing Jean-Paul Gaultier’s most recent Cyber collection, the English singer takes a Noughties-era approach to midriff-baring ensembles—perfect for those big holiday bashes. For more formal events, we turn to actress and singer Nadine Lustre, who opted for a floor-sweeping Martin Bautista dress. With painterly pleats and subdued colors, she looks as though she was plucked from a painting.
Actress Hailee Steinfeld invites you to a print-lover’s paradise in Moschino coordinates with an eye-catching summer print. Wearing chunky blue bangles for a retro touch, Steinfeld embodies the maximalist ethos that more is indisputably more. On the other hand, popular fashion and celebrity photographer BJ Pascual gives the camera a hot stare in a ritzy, tailored Gucci suit. Proving that stripes are an eveningwear hero, Pascual’s unconventional color combination takes things up a notch.
And of course, there’s party like a party with Blackpink. Lisa’s embellished Kim Shui Studio outfit is perfect spotlight-stealing look. A halter top paired with beaded silver micro shorts—this metallic moment takes glamour and the Y2K aesthetic to unprecedented heights.
