To land on the cover of Preview three times in three consecutive years is a true testament of how much impact you’ve brought into the fashion scene, and that is exactly what Liz Uy has accomplished in a span of five years. She has, indeed, come a long, long way, and we can’t help but feel proud of the woman she has become. So what makes her one-of-a-kind, you ask? Read on as we break it down to five reasons and you might just fall in love with her even more.
#1 She worked her way to the top.

With her passion for fashion as her fuel and main asset, she got the job as Preview’s editorial assistant regardless of her HRM degree. She learned the ins and outs of the styling biz on-the-job, producing groundbreaking fashion editorials and covers every month. Soon enough, people—celebrities, most especially—took notice and had her on speed-dial for events and commercials. One promotion led to another, and now she’s the most sought-after celebrity stylist with a team of her own.
#2 She’s morena and proud.

It’s easy to get intimidated when you’re surrounded with mestizas like her friends Georgina Wilson and Anne Curtis, but Liz was never insecure, and that confidence made her shine bright even more.
#3 She’s a celebrity and designer favorite.

Celebrities and designers trust her taste so much, as proven by the continuous flow of styling projects that she has produced through the years. She definitely knows fashion, and is certainly good at it.
#4 She walks the talk.

From working behind the camera, it was inevitable for her to be in the spotlight, given her huge influence in the fashion scene. To date, Liz has about seven endorsements under her belt, with a huge billboard in EDSA to boot.
#5 She’s well-rooted.
