As a young heartthrob-in-the-making, Daniel “DJ” Padilla admits he already knows how to dress up and what kind of image he’d like to present. Aside from being part of the cast of teen-oriented shows like Growing Up and the upcoming series The Princess and I, Daniel also plays bass guitar with his band Parking 5 which performs at gigs in different high schools all over the country. “Ako talaga namimili ng mga damit ko at saka hindi mo ako makikitang nakasuot ng mga pink, mga ganyan. Makikita mo ako ang suot ko lagi dark. Ever since na yan. Pati sa accessories, laging mga black, grey at saka white gusto ko. Pati jackets ko, madaing leather. Kasi gusto ko mag-collect ng leather jackets. Matagal ko ng gusto yun,” he shares.
The 16 year old actor admits that Johnny Depp is his fashion icon of choice because of how cool he can look without putting in too much effort. “Paborito ko na idol yun. Grabe kakaiba kasi siya di ba? Pag tiningnan mo suot niya, minsan yung itsura niya, mahaba buhok, may bigote tapos naka-salamin. Suot niya simple, mga plain shirt lang at saka jeans, sapatos. Simple lang talaga. Ang dami ko na rin ng napanuod na pelikula niya,” he adds. Get Daniel’s look by choosing dark neutral colors over bright ones then pair with dark well worn jeans. Pair it with aviator shades. Break up the dark outfit with some metal accessories like dog tag necklace or a metal belt. Finish the look with hair that looks like you just got off a motorcycle and you can channel Daniel’s hip rockstar vibe too.
