EXCLUSIVE: We’re Stealing These Stylish, Double Tap-Worthy Summer Looks From Korina Sanchez-Roxas
Can we just pause for a moment and talk about how gorgeous Korina Sanchez-Roxas was at the Century Superbod Ageless event last week?
Donning a floral, form-fitting Dolce & Gabbana dress in teal, a classy pair of white Casadei heels, and a metallic green python Gucci clutch, the broadcast journalist and lifestyle show host looked chic as ever—once again proving that she’s worthy of being under every fashionista’s radar. We’re not surprised. After all, the fashion icon is known for her effortlessly elegant style, making her a veteran in best dressed lists through the years.
Korina has been making waves in the fashion scene this year—she landed on the front page of Metro Society’s February 2018 issue, wore a memorable tangerine dress by designer-to-princesses Amir Sali in the issue’s cover story, and was also among the top 10 #MetroMostStylish women this year.
Metro Magazine requested to post these photos of our shoot for #MetroMostStylish2018, which they announced yesterday on Instagram. I'd like to thank the whole team for even considering me to be in this year's list. What a day that was for the shoot at City of Dreams. So much fun. This plaid pantsuit was made for me by Mark Bumgarner.

From her covet-worthy couture dresses to the way she elevates casual jeans into sophisticated OOTDs, Korina truly is a stylish woman through and through.
In an exclusive interview with Metro.Style, host and social media influencer lets us in on her secret to staying fit, as well as her personal wardrobe picks this summer!
Metro.Style: Why did you choose to sport this form-fitting Dolce & Gabbana dress?
Korina Sanchez-Roxas: I bought this five or six years ago, and I hardly ever wore it. But when I find a dress that fits well, I just take it, knowing that one day, there will be a perfect time for it. The Century Superbod Ageless summer event was perfect for this body-hugging floral dress!
Strong is the new sexy. Thank you again, to Century Tuna for having me judge the Century Tuna Superbods Ageless 2018. The competition last night was so fierce!

MS: Tell us more about your jewelry of choice for last week’s head-turning OOTD.
KSR: I chose simple jewelry: black diamond earrings by Jul Dizon.
MS: With glowing skin and a toned body, you look radiant as ever! What is your secret to staying fit?
KSR: I’m not as fit as I should or can be, but I’m still trying to get stronger and more muscular. I try to stay away from carbs and sugar, and I take my MCT oil and supplements regularly. I hike and dive with my husband, who is much fitter than me. I also stretch, do some weights and cardio, and monitor my numbers. The secret is regularity, consistency, and not letting go—at my age, you just can’t afford to let go!
MS: What is one style tip you can share to Metro Women this summer?
KSR: Be fit! Any style suits a great body!
MS: What are your top 5 summer fashion and beauty must-haves?
KSR: (1) A skin baring white top that you can dress up or down with shorts or denims or a skirt,
(2) A pair of cropped white denim pants,
(3) A comfortable, loose, short shift dress you can wear anywhere with heels or dressy slippers,
(4) A flattering bright colored bathing suit or bikini, and
(5) A cream bronzer you can dab on your shoulders, collarbone, or cheekbones for an interesting summer shimmer.
Can’t get enough of Korina’s doubletap-worthy style? Here are some of OOTDs that we’re saving for style inspiration. Keep scrolling for your dose of fashion fix, and feel free to screencap away, Metro women!
Laid-back chic! Korina travels the streets of Bangkok in a light maxi dress paired with a statement necklace and a summer hat.
A skin-baring white top is a summer must-have, according to the lifestyle host—and we totally agree! Dress it up or dress it down, however you like.
Who says printed jeans can’t look sophisticated? We’re in love with this floral denim piece from 7 For All Mankind.
According to this #MetroMostStylish woman, a white pair of jeans is another must-have this season! It’s ultra chic and easy to style.
Stock up on shift dresses this season! This no-fail OOTD of choice is light and airy.
Friend Elsie Chua gave us a tour of the whole building called Citadines, where the resto Relish is. Her latest baby. Wow. It is a full service condotel where you can either buy or rent units. The lobby is signature Cynthia and Ivy Almario with the refreshing chartreuse color scheme. Very young and hip.
Wearing black in summer? Why not! Korina shows us how to wear a work-appropriate B&W outfit during this season. Her secret? Break the monochromatic theme with a pop of color by donning bright shoes, a bright purse, and a bright shade of lippie!
Flared jeans are back, and they’re the perfect go-to for a chic, off-duty look. Take it from Korina!
Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! Take your printed maxi skirt from day to night with the right belt and handbag.
@alicegeduardo the combination of kindness + generosity + smarts! Perfect combination. She's a successful businesswoman, so she has almost everything in life.
