Pia Wurtzbach is an inspiration to many even after serving her Miss Universe reign in 2015. She continues to do good deeds through her work as the Miss Universe Organization’s HIV/AIDS Goodwill Ambassador for Asia & the Pacific. Her style has also evolved in the recent years, embodying a more elegant and sophisticated look. One of her biggest fashion moments came during her hosting gig at the Bb. Pilipinas Coronation night last year, where she made waves in a pink Francis Libiran gown with a Swarovski-studded bodice and a pleated skirt.
KC Del Rosario
KC’s edgy fashion sense, which has elevated her to celebrity status, is fueled by the technical knowledge she learned as a graduate from the prestigious Raffles Design Institute and Central Saint Martins. Her flair for fashion and beauty translates onto her Instagram feed, which are filled with OOTDs that show her love for dressing up, traveling, and partying. With a body to flaunt, KC is an inspiration to designer Boom Sason, whose gowns and swimwear are a perfect fit on her.

Still the Queen of All Media, Kris talks the talk and walks the walk while dressed in some of the best feminine looks.
A Filipino-Chinese lifestyle and fashion writer, Ingrid is commonly known for her self-proclaimed title, “The Bag Hag,”—the authority on all things bags. She is also the developer of silver and semiprecious gem jewelry store Accessory Lab. She’s rubbed elbows with some of the world’s most notable influencers and designers. Her understanding of designer bags even caught the attention of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, who invited her to style their Dolce & Gabbana store window in Via della Spiga.

She dresses herself and others in pieces that will go from the office to the field and to a night out with ease.
This girl boss has successfully married her work and her passion, spending everyday surrounded by beautiful things and opulent finds. Her Instagram feed is a style junkie’s haven, littered with statement pieces, fashion and design inspirations, travel showcases, and edgy OOTDs. Pam’s wedding in 2017 truly spoke of her personal style, as she rocked not one, but two stunning gowns. The first a lace off-shoulder gown by Christos Costarellos, and the main bridal gown was a sheer number with bell sleeves co-designed by Rajo Laurel and Norman Rene Devera.
Julia has been part of the media and fashion industry all her life, hailing from the Barretto showbiz royalty clan. At 9 years old, Julia had already starred in a television series. At 15, she was the Star Magic Ball’s Princess of the Night. At 20, she bagged her first Best Actress award. Julia knows how to pull off a clean and classy look, using the simplest and most comfortable outfits. But when she chooses to stand out, she’s almost always one of the best-dressed. One of her most explosive fashion moments in 2017 came during the Star Magic Ball, when she walked the red carpet in a stunning body-hugging backless gown by Mark Bumgarner. She won the best-dressed title that night.
At 21 years old, when most people her age were finishing college, Pie Alvarez was the youngest and first female mayor of San Vicente, Palawan. During her first term, she opened the first hospital and college in the rural municipality, and promoted eco-tourism to bring more travelers to her town. She was an intern at Chanel before she ran for Mayor. In 2014, Pie founded ‘Love, Candypie,’ a boutique that carries pieces and accessories for women like her: an empowered woman on-the-go. As a fan of bold prints and silhouettes, one of Pie’s most laudable outfits is the metallic fringe jumpsuit she wore to designer Charina Sarte’s wedding. It was designed by Two Chic By TC Alvarez.
Mia began her fashion empire at 20 years old. She put up her own company, Jewels of Irisha, and established a namesake brand that specializes in resort and evening wear. The silhouettes of Mia Arcenas clothing are bold and transition easily from day to night. They also feature unique and opulent fabrics. Mia is a fan of sexy drapes, free-flowing dresses, and golden south sea pearls that highlight her tan. After creating wedding gowns for her friends and clients, Mia designed her own gown for her wedding last July to Jacques Branellec. The high-neck lace and tulle showcased the exquisite style and taste of the self-made fashion goddess.

Talk about standing out.
