Since she entered show business, many have already been banking on Kathryn Bernardo to be one of her generation's most successful artists. Years later, her solid presence and dominance in teleseryes, movies, billboards, and even in business, fans have seen Kath transform from Teen Queen to Queen as she continues to slay and shine.
Looking back, Kathryn has sure grown up right before our eyes. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and relive the Queen Kath's best moments with Chalk!
Of course, the first one the list is her first-ever Chalk cover with Mara Clara co-star and real-life BFF Julia Montes. In this issue, we got a glimpse into the hectic world of the then-15-year-old Kathryn—as if we were reading her slambook! From her blossoming showbiz career to a few of her favorite things, Chalk readers definitely got schooled on Kathryn Bernardo 101!
Out of her Princess of Yangdon costume, Kath embodied Teen Queen realness as she stands tall for her first solo Chalk cover. Inside its pages, the Primetime Princess revealed that her dreams took a little more time to come true, but her hard work and passion truly paid off when Princess and I came along. Look where she’s sitting right now: in her Teen Queen throne!
Kathryn, together with the Chalk team, celebrated the magazine’s 13th birthday with a bang! Filled with sweets, music, friends, and a lot of photos, TV's reigning young star truly enjoyed the slumber party-themed shoot. Cue Katy Perry’s "Birthday" here!
After another year, Kathryn graced the cover of Chalk once again; but, this time around, she is older, wiser, and even more beautiful with her shorter 'do. Through her feature, she inspired us to accept our #NoFilter beauty and her "I woke up like this" look on the cover totally proved that she's a real role model for embracing her most natural self!
For the second time around, Kathryn celebrated Chalk’s anniversary and flaunted the new her on the cover: a young woman who’s 100% over with her teen years. Clad in a black-and-white striped blazer, she exuded a classy yet edgy woman who's ready to take on the world. The Chalk team is nothing but proud of her transformation through the years!
What’s Chalk without a Kathryn Bernardo feature in our website? At chalkmagazine.ph, we listed five things that confirmed Kathryn’s fate as fate is undeniably written in the stars with the "5 Things That Prove Kathryn Is A Queen Since Birth." (No need for scientific tests—this article verified that she’s got royalty in her DNA!)
Proving she’s a style inspo in the making, Kathryn made it on the list of Chalk’s fave red carpet looks from the ASAP Star Magic 25 celebration. And we still can’t stop obsessing over her goddess-like white gown that night! Read the full article here!
A few months ago, Kathryn found herself again in another Chalk online feature. (Well, thanks to Cloud, Snow, and her love for dogs.) In "See How Our Favorite Kapamilya Stars Dote On Their Pet Dogs!," we saw one more reason to adore Kath: she's a true pet lover who we can all relate to!
Aside from magazine covers and online features, she also made our YouTube channel an undoubtedly more kilig place! KB, together with DJP, were super adorable as they played a modified version of the 1-2-3 challenge with us!
While it’s sad that Chalk bid adieu to print, we still made the goodbye a little less heartbreaking. Undeniably the young showbiz royalties of their time, Kathryn and Daniel were shot together for the first time in the epic final print issue of the magazine.
With six Chalk covers and numerous online features published through the years, Kathryn Bernardo definitely grew up with Chalk—as if she's our soul sister! Once a Chalk girl, always a Chalk girl. We love you, Kath!
