Turning 24 isn’t as monumental as turning 16, 18, or 21, but if you think about it, you’re inching closer and closer to being in your late twenties, and that’s a pretty big deal. Actress Kathryn Bernardo decided to celebrate her 24th birthday with her boldest sartorial statement yet, and it might just break the internet: a boxy black blazer and nothing underneath.
If you ask us, it’s an empowering look that totally suits (pardon the pun), all the milestones that she has achieved in the year 2020 alone. She’s got an upcoming comeback teleserye with on- and offscreen partner Daniel Padilla, she served as a PBA muse for the first time, and she also started the construction of her family’s dream home, which she documented in her recent vlog. And oh, let's not forget about her latest record-breaking blockbuster movie, Hello, Love, Goodbye, which earned over P881 million worldwide.
Kathryn, who has been low-key helping frontliners amid the COVID-19 crisis, showed her gratitude for these wonderful things and more through the photo’s caption, even alluding to the country’s current challenging situation by encouraging others to love and to live:
“Officially a year older today! The past few days have made me realize how precious life is, how we should live life to the fullest and cherish the little moments. Waking up every day is already a blessing in itself. So LIVE. Appreciate the people around you and do more of what makes you happy. Thank You for today!”
Sure, her subtly revealing photo proclaims how your girl-next-door Teen Queen isn’t so little anymore, but it’s her caption that truly shows how she has matured and aged gracefully, with a lot of wisdom to impart.
Happy birthday, Kathryn!
