Ok so she’s a Victoria’s Secret model with a tiny waist and long, long, long, long legs..I know it’s close to impossible for me to ever look like her even if I get knee implants BUT I DONT CARE I LOVE HER I LOVE HER I LOVE HER! Hahaha!:) There are a lot of style tips we can pick up from our Mareng Miranda that we regular girls can adopt. Since I’ve been studying her style for weeks now (yes, serious girl crushing level na ‘to!)—I would like to believe that I’ve become a certified Mirandologist! So allow me to share my “findings” with you today. To be more specific, let’s narrow it down to Miranda-inspired everyday casual clothing 🙂
1. Be sure you can actually BREATHE in your clothes.
2. Be sure you can actually MOVE in your clothes.
3. Work with your body type.
When I make the effort to pull myself together it just puts me in a better mood. I remember when I was confined to the hospital for a week, I was a complete train wreck in my hospital gown and I didn’t even have the willpower to look in the mirror because I was drugged up and groggy. The nurse told me “Maam, alam niyo po makakatulong talaga sa pag-galing niyo kung mag-suklay po kayo o magpaganda ng konti.”. Of course my initial reaction was “What?!?!! Sobra naman tong nurse, Do I really look like crap now?!?!” but I could feel that it was coming from a place of genuine concern and experience so I tried it. I had to sort of limp my way to the toilet because I was still in a great amount of pain but I combed my hair, placed a bit of moisturizer and lip balm, put on my nice pajama slowly—and voila!!! I felt better! I felt like a stronger and happier version of myself again. It felt so good to be able to take care of myself and to look good for myself! Trust me, I didn’t look anything close to glamorous but those little grooming tricks did wonders for my self esteem and emotional well being.
5. Dress like the WOMAN you already are (or at least are on your way to becoming!).
Miranda was born on April 20, 1983 making her just 3 days younger than me!!! UYYYYYY, pwede na kaming best friends!!! Hahahaha! Pinipilit ko talaga ang connection. There’s something feminine and fresh about the way she carries herself that I admire. You can tell that she’s over the phase of dressing up to make a statement or to prove a point. Wala ng “kati ng kabataan” (sorry, that was the only term I could think of!) wherein you’re trying too hard to dress like everyone in your barkada—or in the opposite side of the spectrum when you’re trying too hard to NOT dress like everyone else just to show how cool you are. It appears that Miranda dresses up and dresses down as she pleases because she’s a full grown adult who’s comfortable and confident in herself. (Ok, obviously this is just an assumption. Close kami?!?!)
Because she doesn’t try too hard to dress like a teenager, she always looks age appropriate. In the same way, she still injects jeans, flats and well fitted tshirts making her wardrobe more youthful than the average 30 year old. Her makeup is kept to a minimum allowing her skin to glow naturally. Though I understand how for most women makeup is their “safety blanket” when stepping out into the real world—if you pile on too much, it can make you look dated and age you by 5 years. So keep it as close to your natural look as possible.
So there, as a certified Mirandologist I hope I was able to help you with these unofficial “Miranda Kerr Fashion Tips”. At the end of the day, fashion should just be an extension of your personality. Dressing up can be easy if you just allow it to progress naturally 🙂 I love you Mirandaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
