Kapuso actress Janine Gutierrez is one of the country’s finest actresses and it’s crazy how beautiful she is. There is no question that endorsers are hounding Janine to be part of their family. Plus, famous local designers would kill to dress someone as gorgeous as her. One would think that her closet is filled with designer dresses and couture gowns.
But you would be surprised to know that the actress’ wardrobe is largely composed of vintage outfits. Where did she get these amazing outfits? She got them from her famous and fabulous grandmother, singer Pilita Corales. Pilita was also a fashion icon back in her day and it doesn’t hurt that Janine would be the one inheriting that amazing wardrobe.
A beaded gown that Janine rocked in a Thailand five-star resort called Alila Villas Uluwatu was just one of the pieces that she received from her legendary grandmother. It also hugged Janine’s body as if it was custom-made and the fact that Pilita Corales might have worn this in the stage truly made it special.
Janine divulged her love of old clothes and of course, the perks of hand-me-downs from her famous mother and grandmother. The Kapuso star also shared how she receives shoes from her “lola” because they happen to be the same size.
“I love old clothes especially from my lola, from my mom… I really think old clothes bring like another layer to whatever you’re wearing.”
“…suwerte lang kasi because we’re the same size din ng shoes, so yung mga luma niyang shoes, luma niyang bags, ako yung nakakapag-recycle.”
Let’s hope that one day, Janine’s child would also inherit these dresses and transform it as a family heirloom.
