We break down all the designer fashion Laureen Uy wore as she gives us a glimpse of what it's like marrying cool-girl aesthetic and frothy sophistication.
Following another member of the blogger besties , on the cover of MEGAStyle, Laureen Uy is a true emodiment of what it's like to truly live in the moment. It's been probably almost a decade since one of the OG bloggers launched her blog breakmystyle, and ever since she started, we've always liked her happy-go-lucky, come-as-you-are vibes. She has always been this perky stylish girl we'd see on our social media timelines—whether it's in lookbook.nu or Instagram—discovering the world of fashion, as well as of herself, right before our very eyes. Over the years—through perseverance and dedication—she has successfully catapulted herself to greater heights, landing digital campaigns, commercial shoots, and even utilizing her own platforms for issues that are close to her heart. With the sudden upward trend of influencer marketing, she was able to put herself on a pedestal amongst digital nomads worldwide—thanks to her ingenuity and understanding of how to successfully penetrate the fast-paced world of social media. From TikTok contents to YouTube vlogs, she knew what her audience really look for: beauty, fashion, and life hacks. So, it was only fitting that we learned several tips and tricks on these topics on her various channels. After all, it's all about breaking her style. With that said, as she graces our September 2020 cover, we dissect all the designer looks she donned. MEGA’s Digital Content Editor and stylist Angelo Ramirez de Cartagena envisioned her juxtaposing two contrasting aesthetics: cool-girl elements and pure sophistication. "Like the Rodarte girl of my dreams, it was all about the sweet with an undercurrent of feisty, which is very Laureen Uy," he details. And with the use of mirrors as a metaphor for reflecting the signs of the times, we are able to create that optical illusion, which perfectly describes our quarantine mood. In this self-reflection of Laureen Uy, let her outfits speak for itself and tell you why she still is unmatched.
The Going Of Grandeur
Given her successful career that she established in the blogging industry, it's safe to say that Laureen deserves all that she has right now. And in this optical illusion of herself wearing Con Cordeta's mustard yellow pleated dress, the digital star shows us that you have to only channel your true self to be victorious in a cut-throat industry.
While the world of influencer marketing has been greatly affected due to the pandemic, Laureen Uy confronts life's setbacks head-on donning a light blue Neric Beltran tulle dress. And as she knows that even if the fashion world could be all glitz and glam, the dress is paired with denim pants, because it's only through real grit that you can do the work and overcome such obstacles.
Welcome To The 60s
Transporting us back to the 60s wherein people were reminded of hope and change, the blogger sought to remind everyone that a rainbow shall soon appear. To commemorate this great epoch in the history of humankind, she wore a frothy beige tulle skirt, which was fashioned as a top and vintage-inspired flared trousers by /Bench.
In Full Bloom
And for one last time, Laureen Uy shows us that after being in the industry for a decade now, being true to who you are is what really counts—authenticity is key. So, as she is now in full bloom, the beauty was swathed in a blue sheer ruffled dress by Marc Rancy, which was gracefully juxtaposed with a floral mesh top by Guess and white high-cut sneakers by MSGM. Cool? We think so, too.
