See all the exquisite Cherry Veric pieces Loisa Andalio wore as she paints the true glamor of the Renaissance on our August 2019 cover.
Thrust into the spotlight at a young age, Loisa Andalio was introduced early to an alluring world of glitz and glam. But even before she became part of the cut-throat industry of show business, she experienced first-hand the real struggle to get inside it.
She initially began her career the moment she arrived at the PBB House, where she overcame countless challenges. Although that may be, there was still the challenge on staying relevant. And in order for her to thrive and set herself apart, she made use of her wit and candor. She stayed true to herself—whilst manifesting the art of transformation.
So now that she has finally become a modern day woman, she gives us a glimpse of the beauty of her womanhood. And what better way to explore that than by fusing old world glamor and her modern elegance.
In her first-ever solo cover on MEGA, we travel back in time in the romantic Renaissance era as we reimagine Loisa as a modern muse of an old 16th century portrait. Feminine textures take on a contemporary yet classically romantic looks with lace and feminine shades of white, beige, and black.
Once Loisa came out in this marvelous printed coat paired with a tulle gown by Cherry Veric, it somehow mirrored a royal arrival back in the days. And with the painterly prints and airy fabrics layered to perfection, the stunning pearl drop earrings by Piedra impeccably completes the look.
Following the royal arrival, Loisa shows us the true regality of a princess. As sheet panels paired with ball skirts are the best feminine combination of the season, Loisa wore a magnificent deep V-neck ball gown. She finished the look with a pearl head band by GAUD Manila.
Bringing the old romantic aesthetics to contemporary fashion, Loisa suits up in a blazer partnered with a lilac tulle dress by Cherry Veric. To effortlessly elevate her look, she wore an adorned head piece by GAUD Manila.
The young star proves to us that the Renaissance shouldn’t just be composed of ball gowns. She also wore a floral organza tube top with trail and trousers paired with a pearl drop earring by Piedra, Loisa stunningly adds a subtle sensuality through cuts that expose the appropriate amount of skin.
Finally, radiating an overflowing amount of beauty, our cover star blooms in an asymmetrical gown with mesh and appliques. She finished off her look with a lovely blush head band with pearls by GAUD Manila.
