With signature looks that range from preppy and polished to sensual, we break down iconic outfits of your favorite Filipino celebrities.
We always remember the big style moments of our favorite celebrities, whether it’s during the Met Gala or a save-worthy Instagram post. Zendaya recreating Beyoncé’s “Crazy In Love” dress at the BET Awards? Iconic. Harry Styles dropping his Fine Line cover art on social media in those white palazzo pants and pink silk blouse? A vision. When you’re racking your brain for outfit ideas or just want to elevate your look like the stars, why not check in with the A-listers?
Thanks to professional help, aka stylists, or just innate flair, celebrities have mastered their looks to a T and it’s only natural that we use their covetable style as guides. We’ll do you one better and give you a guide of Filipina celebrities whose styles you can emulate. Whether you have Heart Evangelista’s petite frame or Shay Mitchell’s complexion, these style icons have been representing Filipinos on-screen and off-the-runways. We’ve compiled all the big fashion moments by our favorite Filipino celebrities that have caused us to do a double take.
Post-Punk Plaid Heroine: Heart Evangelista
What happens when Cher Horowitz from Clueless and Jenny Humphrey from Gossip Girl swap fashion secrets? Look to Evangelista for answers. To attend Dior’s Autumn/Winter 2022 runway show, Evangelista wore a white-collared blouse with an oversized yellow plaid coat and accessorized the look with a Lady Dior bag. The actor and fashion influencer also wore Jenny Humphrey-esque boots: proof that a school girl-inspired take with a hint of grunge will earn you a spot at runway shows.
The Naked Dress: Vanessa Hudgens
Vanessa Hudgens brought a goth-inspired twist to “Gilded Glamour” at Met Gala 2022. Wearing a sheer number from Moschino, the High School Musical alum embraced her Filipino heritage through oversized sleeves, reminiscent of the classic terno. With a detailed lace bodice and a lengthy train, the actress makes a case for the dramatic naked dress.
A Surrealist Escape: Anne Curtis
In a barely-there black top and a Job Dacon skirt that practically melts into the floor, Anne Curtis makes surrealist flair look good. A nod to a liquid gold moment with Schiaparelli’s trompe l’œil nipple ornaments, Curtis is a statuesque muse. The Filipino-Australian actor brings an haute twist to minimalist dressing with an outré take on sensual eveningwear.
The Suburban Mom: Shay Mitchell
In a pink and olive green micro-terry set by SEROYA NYC paired with a matching miniature bag and transparent heels, Shay Mitchell channels her inner barbie—befitting for an actor who stars in a series titled Dollface. As the barbiecore era reels in, the Béis founder brings her own risqué spin to sublime suburban fashion with a vintage ’70s-style pointed collar and an unbuttoned button-up.
The Y2K Icon: Olivia Rodrigo
Bona fide pop star Olivia Rodrigo’s penchant for color takes form in an electric blue custom Blumarine dress with a plunging neckline, lengthy frills, and a butterfly appliqué. An ode to Paris Hilton’s 2002 birthday party dress, the “good 4 u” singer wore this Y2K-inspired blue halter dress to the Grammy’s afterparty—after she bagged three awards earlier that night for Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album, and Best Pop Solo Performance of the Year.
