Julia Barretto Is The Ultimate Femme Fatale In 'Expensive Candy'

Take a closer look at Julia's wardrobe in 'Expensive Candy'.

Julia Barretto sizzles as the lead of upcoming film Expensive Candy and we’re first in line for the ticket booth! Starring alongside the esteemed actress is heartthrob Carlo Aquino, and the two make quite the daring pair. 


Directed and written by JP Laxamana of Isang Daang Tula Para Kay Stella and The Day After Valentine’s fame, Expensive Candy is set to follow the complicated love story between Candy, a fierce and independent sex worker (played by Julia) and Toto, a bumbling, virgin school teacher (played by Carlo). And although Carlo is a veteran in the world of romantic flicks with Meet Me in St. Gallen and Exes Baggage, Julia is set to step into the limelight of her first ever sexy role to date—and we couldn’t be more excited than a kid in a candy store.


Recently, the film has been heating up our screens with promotional photos of the most seductive match in town. We’re lucky enough to get a little taste of Candy through some of her stunning looks in the movie! In a striking array of colors, from lace to metallics—and even different hairstyles from brunette to pink—we see the influences of similar movies like Closer and Hustlers woven into Candy’s style. Because who said sexy can’t be stylish?


We’re onboard for the eye candy that’s sure to grace our cinemas. Anyone else looking forward to seeing more of the characters as sweet and spicy collide? Scroll through our gallery below to explore Julia Barretto’s take on Candy and the character’s electric style.
