Over the last seven days, fashion magazine Metro and lifestyle website Metro.Style have introduced, by batches of 10, the best-dressed women in the country -- a list of 50 selected through a "long process" that included combing through magazine pages, event coverage, and social media.
On Monday, the top 10 were finally introduced, led by Kapamilya star Anne Curtis and actress Lovi Poe, both tied for first place. The two "Most Stylish" women are featured on the two-cover special of Metro's February 2018 issue.
According to Metro Magazine, Poe, the daughter of the late film icon Fernando Poe, Jr., only "recently caught our eyes, but a quick scroll through her feed shows that when it comes to dressing up, she has long been on her way to becoming always #OOTD-ready."
Cover girl favorite Curtis, meanwhile, was credited as a "fashion chameleon who puts her best shoe forward everyday," particularly on "It's Showtime," which she co-hosts. The actress, Metro wrote, is "always ahead of the curve and no doubt has fun expressing herself through fashion, taking her millions of followers along for the ride."
Meanwhile, another TV star, Heart Evangelista, ranked third and was cited for a 2017 "full of memorable fashion statements," including her sartorial choices at the State of the Nation Address, the Star Magic Ball, and Paris Fashion Week.
In fourth place is model and reality TV personality Jess Wilson, whose outfits at two high-profile weddings last year -- those of Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff, and of Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho -- wowed the panel of editors and fashion experts who curated the best-dressed list.
The only non-showbiz personality in the top five, Food Link COO and vice-president Beng Dee, "credits self-expression and her love of color as the keys to her style" and considers as her "biggest ammunition" her high heels both for work and leisure.
Completing the top 10, in descending order from sixth place, are Korina Sanchez-Roxas, host of "Rated K" and ABS-CBN news anchor; Dr. Aivee Aguilar-Teo, founder of The Aivee Clinic; Tootsy Angara, ABS-CBN Cluster Head for Sales; Steph Kienle-Gonzalez, Vice-President of Sales and Business of Philux; and Joanna Preysler-Francisco, owner of Othello, and Tint and Carbon.
