Style Inspirations For Holiday 2013 Trends

We’re more than halfway through 2013. How time flies! Before you know it, the -ber months are here. To help you with this transition, Tim Yap and I collaborated to bring you the trends you should know this Holiday 2013 according to P&G Beauty experts. This is my last project as a P&G Beauty Ambassador so I hope you like it! (Cue goodbye song)

If you have a copy of today’s Philippine Star, you might’ve already read Tim’s article about this project on Supreme. (If not, go get one!) Tim chose four personalities, including myself, who represent the four key trends we’ve prepared for you. I, on the other hand, took charge of our styling. Read on below to find out how to get each of the four Holiday 2013 looks–from prepping your skin and hair down to the clothes!

Holiday 2013 Trend #1: Riding School

Meet Jessica Kienle, a lover of interior arts. She worked in Paris for three years for a foundation that was devoted to the arts, took a four-year program in interior architecture, then spent almost two years in New York to finish her studies before she moved to San Francisco to work with Dara Rosenfeld. Who better to represent the preppy Riding School trend than her? Riding School is an eclectic fashion theme best described by a ’90s Brit Pop sound track mixed with traditional Scottish bagpipes. Think Gossip Girl with a little more attitude in plaid! The key piece here is plaid, but without any touches of grunge. It’s all prim and proper here!

Sam McKnight, Global Stylist Ambassador for Pantene, translated this look on the catwalks for Italian brand Moschino. He said, “I wanted to create a look that brought together the essential Italian identity of Moschino with the influence of iconic British style, so I took a classic ponytail and added volume for glamour and a low side parting for a little drama.  I think that there’s definitely a hint of the ‘60s within this look yet at the same time it’s clean, fresh and modern.”

Here’s how you can recreate this hair style just like how we did for the shoot:

1. Use Pantene Smooth and Silky Shampoo & Conditioner to provide the perfect base for this look.
2. Before blow drying, apply Pantene All Day Smooth Miracle Water Treatment. It’s non-sticky and transforms into clean liquid upon contact with hands, releasing the water content within the formula to provide an ultra-light finish that helps hair maintain the perfect moisture level even when you are up and about.
3. Blow dry hair back off the face using a round brush to smooth the hair.
4. Side part the hair for the clean, classic look. Gather the hair back and tie with a hooked elastic.
5. Use a large pair of curling irons in random sections of the hair to create a soft bend in the ponytail.
6. Add more Pantene All Day Smooth Miracle Water treatment to the ends if the ends look dry.

As for the face, use Olay Regenerist Microsculpting cream to prep it. It’s able to make your skin appear flawless to achieve this super clean and classic look. The results are almost instantaneous! In just 10 minutes, ageing concerns like eye lines, brightness and boosting hydration will all have noticeable improvements.

For the body, this subtle and posh look is paired perfectly with Camay’s Romantique Rose Shower Gel. Just like the girl who embodies this trend, this goes with soft, scented skin smelling of French roses.

Holiday 2013 Trend #2: Masculine x Feminine

Meet Romina Nañagas, PR girl extraordinaire! Whenever I see this girl, she’s always in something that’s both masculine and feminine. She fits the androgynous style so well! As the name suggests, the masculine x feminine trend is all about taking on women’s fashion as inspired by our male counterparts. Think wide leg pants, structured pieces, tailored blazers and so on and so forth! Everything is clean and sleek.

I had a little fun with this look. If you’ve been reading my blog for quite some time now, you’d know that I’m a fan of this trend. The trousers-polo-blazer combo has always been done so I figured, I want to try something else. How about a jumper instead? To my eyes, it looks a little bit inspired by a man’s vest and slacks. Dandy!


For girls who have short hair, here’s how you can achieve this hair style:

1. This look is simple! Start with clean hair that’s been shampooed and conditioned with Pantene Total Damage Care ( a short ‘do needs super healthy hair).
2. Side part for a more masculine finish.
3. Apply Pantene Root-Lift Mist so the hair doesn’t get greasy near the scalp area
4. A quick blow dry and you’re good to go.
Since a masculine look sometimes involves a short crop like a pixie cut, this look brings out your eyes. Therefore, for the face, I suggest using Olay Regenerist’s Microsculpting Eye Cream & Lash duo. It’s perfect for the skin around the eyes (non-greasy & hydrates) and helps lashes look thicker too!

For the body, quirky girls would love the scent of Camay Grapefruit to go with this gamine look!

Holiday 2013 Trend #3: Punk’d


No one can get more punk rock than Sarah Gaugler–illustrator, graphic designer, tattoo artists and vocalist of the band, Turbo Goth. It was so easy styling this girl! The interpretation of punk-couture is a version of punk meets rock and roll, with a youthful feel to it. The undoubtedly charming, soft version of punk is possibly the most wearable version of this trend and is bound to be a popular look as it is also relatively easy to achieve. I don’t think you need me to explain this style any further. Leather, high-contrast combinations, typography, hardware, leopard prints…the list goes on!

The hairstyle for this look is one that’s made to look lived in. To achieve it:

1. Hair has to be volumized so use Pantene Nature Care Smoothness and Life shampoo and conditioner for hair that’s smooth but not flat.
2. Use a bit of Pantene All-Day Smooth Miracle Water treatment for a conditioning treatment that won’t weigh hair down.
3. Tousle and ruffle the hair with your fingers as you blow dry.
4. Roughly pull the hair back, away from the face and gather into a ponytail, tying with a black elastic.
5. Twist the ponytail into a rough bun shape and secure with pins.
6. Tease the hair at the top and sides of the head to create a furrowed, un-done texture.

This look goes so well with fair skin because of the edgy makeup. So for the face, use Olay Natural White for moisturized skin that has its natural fairness and glow.

As for the body, just like its quirky sister in the Masculine x Feminine trend, the Punk’d girl would love the Dynamique Grapefruit of Camay’s Shower Gels. It has an energizing scent–just like the Punk’d girl!

Holiday 2013 Trend #4: Contemporary Crusader


Joel Escober gown (available at MYTH, Greenbelt 5Chanel vintage earrings | SM Accessories rings

Why hello there, it’s me! I am your contemporary crusader! I was quite surprised myself to be included in this project but here I am. LOL! The contemporary crusader trend is a lively reinvented opulence of imperial folklore, re-interpreted with an expressive and precious aesthetic. It’s a story within a story and is as folkloric as a Russian matryoshka doll, with layers of hidden meanings gradually revealed, one after the other. Feminine and opulent, this is a refined display of taste and style; intricate and intelligent rather than being about showy excess. If you’ve already read Tim’s article on Supreme, I mentioned why I think this trend works for me. Contemporary crusader is all about finding the right balance between old and new–taking traditional and imperial folklore elements and reinterpreting them in a modern way. This is definitely something I enjoy doing. I like mixing and matching different styles because I hate getting boxed in and stuck in a rut, but at the same time, I make sure whatever look I come up with is striking, put-together and sophisticated.


To match this style, hair is crafted using traditional techniques updated with state of the art products. Pretty, romantic, and self-assured. It’s all about craftwork. Global Stylist Ambassador for Pantene Sam McKnight translated this hairstyle on to the runway of Vivienne Westwood. To achieve an everyday version of this, here’s my hair how-to:

1. This look is often used by the experimental girl with coloured hair. If you have coloured hair like me, use Pantene Colour and Perm Care collection (shampoo, conditioner and treatment) to maintain the vibrancy of your hair colour to go with your braid.
2. Put a little Pantene Root-Lift Mist so your braid doesn’t go flat at the scalp. For the rest of your hair, use Pantene All Day Smooth Miracle Water treatment so there’s no frizz around the braid area.
3. If you’re creative, weave in a piece of fabric with your braid!

For the face, since the makeup for this look is quite avant-garde, your skin needs to be prepped! Use Olay Total Effects Anti-Ageing + Fairness Cream for skin that’s fresh, youthful and with even skin tone.

For the body, Camay Shower Gel in French Vanilla goes with the worldly sophistication of this look.

    I love your floor-length dress. It makes me think of the chi pao from China, but with a more European twist.

  18. judy

    Oh yeah! Oh yeah! I’m so proud to say that the first thing I did when I went out this morning was grabbed a copy at the news stand, fumbled through the pages of Philippine Star, took a photo of you there and post in on my Instagram account (@iamnother) even tagged you there! Kudos to my favorite “fashion designer, blogger and sometimes a stylist”, like you always say in your introductions, lol! Like?

    I also looove how you styled your own clothes to the models! I can only imagine how big your closet is! Give us a tour naman! Especially your shoe and bag closets!!!!!!

    • Tasha D.

      61 hypes after 2hrs of posting?! UNACCEPTABLE! Clearly lookbook people don’t appreciate REAL Fashion. chos! Masyado kasi silang attracted sa “hipster” looks eh. Tyaka yung mga super heavily edited pictures. -_- kaya din i looove Konstantina Tzagaraki from LB eh. Always glamorous mga looks nya. Bongga lang.

  24. Alyssa Martinez

    I love the looks especially yours and Sarah Gaugler’s. First thing that grabbed my attention on your photo was your very flawless armpits! Haha And for a second, I thought you were wearing a Dolce & Gabbana dress hehe

    Great post! :)

    • itscamilleco

      Haha! :) My eyes went straight to my armpits as well. LOL! Thanks Alyssa!

  25. sweet

    can’t help but notice the clear underarms, how do you manage? :)

    • itscamilleco

      I think I got them from my mom :) She’s got the most flawless armpits ever!

  26. Colt Nava

    Oh I love this post! I love all four key trends for the upcoming holiday BUT I have to be bias and say that I love the Contemporary Crusader the most *wink wink*. Your first photo made me giggle because it looks like the painting behind you was checking out your left armpit lol you look glorious, Camille!

  27. Kay

    Hi Camille,

    Correct me if I’m wrong but some of the clothes and accessories used in this shoot are yours right? Some of the pieces are familiar kasi…

    Definitely learned a lot from this entry! It’s nice of you to share these tips and show to us how you work in the fashion world! This is a big project and the bonus part is you’re part of it! Can’t imagine how happy you are when they offer/talk this project to you! Nicely done Camille! Keep it up! ;)

  28. Angelic Robles

    High-five to you, Miss Camille! The styling of all these looks is impeccable. The themes were well thought of, and I love how the articles of clothing and accessories came together. The hair and makeup matched each of the personalities that the four styles exemplified, and the resulting photos are works of art!

    I have to say, your look really went past all my expectations! For the contemporary crusader, I was hyped up to see graphic tees with brilliant slogans, classic shoes with edgy add-ons, and sassy hairstyles and makeup hues. Imagine my astonishment when I saw the wide patterns and bright colors of your outfits! I was thrilled with how each of your ensembles really exuded the royal air of history mixed with the classic silhouettes of today.

    P.S. I LOVE the gold shoes! They spell G-L-A-M-A-Z-O-N all the way! They give off an impression of strength in style.

    • itscamilleco

      Thank you so much Angelic! :) We pulled the shoot off well. Thank God! I think the girls did their part so well too! They made the looks come to life :)

  29. Nkenge

    BEAUTIFUL PIECES and definitely great ideas :) Loving the first dress on you and that embellished jacket in the second outfit. A MUST add to my wardrobe.
