If I have to pick what's most impressive about Toni Gonzaga’s style sensibilities, it’s gotta be her ability to sport a whole spectrum of looks, from simple to edgy, while still being true to her classic self. She may be rocking a risqué pair of shoes, but her entire vibe still spells s-o-p-h-i-s-t-i-c-a-t-e-d. How does she do it? We had a quick chat with celebrity stylist AJ Alberto, Toni’s ever-trusted fashion BFF when it comes to her looks in various shows, red carpet events, shoots, and endorsements, to know more about the Ultimate Multimedia Star’s style faves—plus, AJ’s got tips so you can channel Toni’s très chic fashion M.O.
On working with Toni: “She's easy to work with and knows what she wants. She's so funny and makes work really fun. It doesn't really feel like work when you're working with her because it's just so easy and light. She also gives good pieces of advice to people close to her on set.”
On his inspirations when it comes to Toni’s looks: “I usually draw inspiration from fashion magazines and runway fashion shows, but I also like to incorporate Toni's personal style to the looks because that's what makes her style unique.”
On their fashion formula: “Anything that would accent her figure. I usually let her wear form fitting clothes. My go to style for her are figure hugging clothes because it accentuates her lean figure but sometimes I experiment also on different different silhouettes. She also has nice legs and nice shoulders that suit any type of clothing.”
On mastering effortless chic like Toni: “Go for classic pieces with classic silhouettes, and when in doubt, wear black because it's her go-to color. It's simple and elegant and it can transition from day to night. You can accessorize the look with simple stud earrings or a watch. Dont let accessories overpower the outfit and remember that understated elegance will never go out of style.”
