EXCLUSIVE: Maymay Entrata Is Local Fashion's Newest Celebrity Muse
Vivo ambassadress and fashion favorite Maymay Entrata with the new stylish Vivo V11 in Nebula, featuring an in-display fingerprint scanner and enhanced AI technology.
In her intricate, figure-hugging, custom Furne One - Amato gown at the recent ABS-CBN Ball, Maymay Entrata was like a graceful swan. Gorgeous and statuesque, she was inarguably a standout, and was deemed one of the best-dressed female stars of the night—a recognition she deserves. For the after-party, she changed into another beautiful Furne One masterpiece with a dainty, frilly skirt and sheer cape. Last year, she also stole the spotlight at the Star Magic Ball in her sparkly Mark Bumgarner ball gown.

“BELLE OF THE BALL” First timer. We wanted her to look like a modern princess. The goal was to make her wear a ball gown that made a statement, even when it was subdued and refined. #MAYMAYENTRATA (@maymayentrata_07) for #STARMAGICBALL2017 Styling by #TEAMRAINXEM (@teamrainxem) Head Stylists RAIN DAGALA (@rainierdagala) and EM MILLAN (@emmillan) Assisted by CHINO AGUILAR (@chinobrownleeaguilar), REGINE ALDABA (@reginealdaba), JERNIH AGAPITO (@jernihagapito), and ALYSSA DE GUZMAN (@alyssa_deguzman) Stylist Assistant J-ANNE AGUIRRE Gown by MARK BUMGARNER (@markbumgarner) Jewelries by JMA JEWELRY (@jmajewelry) @stephayson @suzetteayson Make up by EMMAN DE LEON (@emmandeleonmakeup) Hair by JAYMAR LAHAYHAY (@jaymarlahaylahay) SPECIAL THANKS For MAYMAY ENTRATA STARMAGIC PHILIPPINES (@starmagicphils) CAPTLUZ BAGALACSA (@captainluz) PEACHY BAUTISTA (@starmagic_peachy) For TEAMRAINXEM W TALENT MANAGEMENT (@wtalentmanagement) CHER GIOSKOS (@chergioskos) GERARD GOTLADERA (@gerardgotladera) and SUKI SALVADOR (@sukisalvador) VIDEO PRODUCED AND DIRECTED by (@luminousfilmsph) Photos by JACK ALINDAHAO (@jackalindahao
These are just three of the many fashion moments Maymay has had in the fairly short span of time she's been in showbiz. With her svelte figure and commanding stance, she is a dream muse of many local fashion designers. She's worn creations by the likes of Mark Bumgarner, Martin Bautista, Neric Beltran, Mak Tumang, Jazel Sy, Robert Ortega, and Liza Padilla, and easily adjusts to whatever an occasion's fashion moodboard calls for.
That she is a fashion chameleon is an obvious truth that has been established as well. She can go from sweet to glam to edgy—the range of her capacity to capture attention and leave not just her loyal followers but also the industry insiders in awe is impressive.
There's no denying the fact that Maymay has arrived, be it as a budding actress or a rising style icon especially to her fellow millennials.

The past two years for this Pinoy Big Brother Big Winner have been filled with victories both big and small. The well of opportunities for Maymay seems bottomless; she's always had something to celebrate—be it a new magazine cover feature, a new endorsement deal, or a new onscreen project. She is, no doubt, in-demand. But up to now, it still feels surreal for her. “Hanggang ngayon, hindi ko pa rin fully matanggap. Parang mabilis lahat ng pangyayari,” she says. “Hindi pa rin ako nakakapaniwala. Feeling ko nasa panaginip pa rin ako.”

After starring in a movie called Loving in Tandem with partner Edward Barber, launching a multi-awarded self-titled album, performing at her very own sold-out concert, there's one more aspect to this artist's career that she'd like to explore: "Ngayon, siguro gusto ko po ma-experience mag-model at mag-fashion show.” Even that, she's done several times, too!
But clearly, you can trust Maymay to always level up her game. What could be next for her? There were rumors of her joining Asia's Next Top Model, with top model and America’s Next Top Model host and producer Tyra Banks expressing her admiration for the young Pinay star on several occasions. Although that didn't turn out to be true, she didn't dismiss the possibility of a similar career milestone happening for her in the near future. She says, “Sorry po! Kahit gustung-gusto ko rumampa, ‘di pa talaga!" For her thousands of fans, this statement is enough for them to keep rooting for their idol.

Authenticity through and through
Fans know better than idolizing someone on mere looks alone. They want someone worth emulating and looking up to, someone who has the talent, the substance, and the genuine heart to be considered a role model. Maymay ticks all these boxes.
Despite her and Edward skyrocketing to phenomenal stardom, Maymay has remained humble and grounded. She is extremely in touch with reality and never forgets the past that had shaped her present and will continue to make an impact on her future.
Authenticity is the name of her game, but she's in no mood to play. She is dead serious about succeeding, while staying true to who she is and nurturing lasting relationships with those she feels blessed to work with.
"Ang pinaka-ayaw ko talaga is ’yung hindi ako totoo sa sarili ko, ’yung parang peke ka," Maymay shares. "Kapag hindi ako totoo sa sarili ko, nag-iiba talaga pakiramdam ko, parang hindi lumalabas boses ko. Ayoko talaga.”
