The Megastar Sharon Cuneta turns 50 today, and while she’s undeniably a great actress and singer (her blockbuster hits and multiple awards are proof of that), her status as an icon of her generation encompasses her filmography and hit songs—she was also one of the main style inspirations of many women during the ‘80s and ‘90s. And you know what we realized? Her eldest daughter, KC Concepcion, has actually been rocking updated versions of the looks she was once known for. Check out KC’s modern takes on Sharon’s style:
Sleek black. The Megastar likes the polished vibe of black ensembles, and KC surely knows how to work this, too, as evidenced by her all-black menswear-inspired outfit at the 5th Philippine Fashion Ball by designer Rhett Eala. Make this your own: There’s no special technique when it comes to this, as head-to-toe black works on anyone because of its slimming power.
Power dressing. Chic suits were also a trend during Sharon’s heyday, and she wore a lot of them especially for films and shows where she portrayed alpha female characters. KC adds a dash of sexiness by picking out a suit in bold red and wearing it with a bandeau top underneath instead of the usual conservative buttondown.
Laidback tee and jeans. During her younger years, one of Sharon’s go-to fashion combos were relaxed shirts and jeans (it was during the ‘80s and ‘90s when denim started becoming a really huge thing). KC also possesses a similar laidback style for regular days out: See how effortlessly cool she was in just a blue longsleeved shirt and jeans during their ASAP 20 in London trip. Make this your own: Get jeans that fit in all the right places—they’ll make you look waaaayyyyy sexier.
Sexy cocktail dressing. Sharon was also known to don the most exquisite dresses that showed off her slim physique beautifully, and now KC upholds that fashion wisdom by accentuating her curves through silhouette and pattern play.
