As one of the industry’s best dressed celebrities, Kathryn Bernardo said that she is now more aware of her personal style. “Nag-evolve na (taste ko). Dati hindi ko rin alam kung ano pero I think as you grow older, nag-iiba rin yung gusto mo. Mas alam mo na kung anong bagay sa iyo. Now, I’m very hands-on with my outfits so with my stylist I talk to her, I tell her what I want to wear for this event. So mag-she-share kami ng ideas para hindi yung pinasuot lang niya sa akin. Before kasi, whatever they give me isusuot ko. Hindi ako particular sa cut and sa colors,” she admitted during her Keds ambassador pictorial.
The box office actress also revealed how she chooses her outfits. “Ngayon mas into the details ako and I feel like mas nag-wo-work kapag yung artist and the stylist nag-ko-collaborate para mas magkaroon din ng character. Alam ko lang kung ano yung bagay sa akin and mas nag-si-stick ako with the classic pieces,” she said.
Kathryn said that even the attention grabbing Filipiniana gown she recently wore also had her personal touch. “Like nung ABS-CBN ball, sinabi ko kay Michael (Cinco) na I wanted to wear something with indigenous prints and then nag-sketch siya with that madaming options and then nag-work kasi sinabi ko yung gusto ko and then in-execute niya yung gusto niya. So para siyang collaboration talaga. Happy ako sa nangyari sa ball and then also sa Preview so ang saya na na-appreciate ng mga tao kung paano namin pini-present yung sarili namin,” she explained.
Even after being launched as the first Filipino celebrity ambassador of Keds, Kathryn said her shoe collection is still a modest number. “Medyo madami lang (laughs). Kailangan ko kasi siya sa work eh. Especially sa aming girls. Siguro 40 pairs, ganyan. Hindi naman ako si Imelda (laughs),” she said.
As one of the most admired female among her peers in showbiz, Kathryn said is just thankful to those celebrities who admits she and Daniel Padilla are their ultimate crush. “Talaga? Wow (laughs). It’s a bit na nakaka-pressure but at the same time, ang sarap sa pakiramdam na ibig sabihin may nakikita sila sa ‘yo na something so happy kami and I hope makatulong kami ni DJ (Padilla). Kasi kami din naman nung nag-start kami meron kang ina-idolize so now sana kung ano yung mga natulong sa akin ng mga seniors before, yun yung magawa namin sa mga younger ones to help them and to inspire them. Basta sinasabi ko lang sa kanila parati na dapat huwag mong kalimutan kung sino ka and don’t be pressured to be just like anyone else. You have to make your own identity and just be yourself so the people will lvoe you even more,” she explained.
