Aside from the usual “he/she should’ve won” tirades during post-Oscar season, fashion report cards on the stars’ outfit mushroom all over the web. Whether Natalie Portman got an A on her dress just like her acting, you might need to search for that somewhere other than Charicemania, because here, it’s all about Charice.
If you’ve been poring over the Oscar red carpet photos, you might see quite a handful of rosy numbers, from best actress nominee Jennifer Lawrence’s simple dress to Anne Hathaway’s ruffled Valentino gown. Teen.com noticed just that and raised their trendspotting alert for scarlet-hued outfits. Guilty stars include Selena Gomez, Anna Kendrick, Emma Stone, Vanessa Hudgens, and of course, Charice.
Charice is actually one step ahead of them as she wore her trendy Ralph Lauren red dress a month before the Oscars at the Women’s Day Awards. Her attention-grabbing dress, with voluminous shoulders and a short hem, was paired with nude platform heels, really red lips, and stick-straight hair. Charice is really starting to show her chic-tendencies now. From her red carpet appearances, to concerts, even in low-key days, Charice is more aware of what she looks good in.
She has shed the frilly, pink dresses she wore as a child joining singing competitions in the Philippines, and traded them for sleeker and more modern clothes. In this article, Charice reveals how she prefers the simple yet stylish look of skinny jeans, her weakness for shades and her collection of fedoras.
She may have an edgier, more boyish taste than the usual pop-stars with skimpier clothes, but Charice knows what works for her body the most, “short skirts make my legs look longer. That was a tip given to me by stylists.” In a world where power stylists, like Rachel Zoe, create looks for celebrities, Charice still trusts someone much closer to home – her mom. She’s the one who shops for Charice and chooses most of her clothes. And Charice has one hundred percent confidence in her, “She knows the styles that I like. Eksakto [Just right]. Walang labis, walang kulang [Nothing more, nothing less].”
With a mom in the background guiding Charice’s choice in clothes, there’s no danger for her going risqué any time soon. There’s a perfect balance in looking hot but still looking refined, and Charice’s fashion sense is right on track.
