When it comes to sleek, trendy looks, fashion enthusiasts look no further than Nadine Lustre. Nadine is not one to shy away from trying different trends and looks, but in every one of them, the actress exudes confidence, inspiring others to embrace their bodies. Being the fashion chameleon she is, Nadine’s avant-garde styles also sparked trends in the country. A popular trend she started is pairing loose, baggy jeans with crop tops and chunky sneakers, bringing a whole lot of ‘90s vibes.
Representing the Gen Z celebrities is Andrea Brillantes.
