Scarlet Snow Belo has just been recognized as a "fashion icon." At age 7, the daughter of celebrity beauty doctors Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho is the youngest fashionista in Tatler Asia's Most Stylish for 2022.
Doc Vicki shared all about it in an exclusive interview last Friday, September 9, 2022, during the 32nd-anniversary celebration of her company.
She said, "Every year, they have this style issue. Parang may board of directors, everybody in the region has to agree na stylish itong tao na ito.
"Kahit Philippines, it's in the list of all Asia. Scarlet is the youngest and, I guess, the only little girl who's there."
With obvious pride, she shared she has always been in charge of her daughter's OOTDs.
She continued, "I'm so proud kasi, of course, I helped dress her, so that's on me!"
The other stylish personalities on Tatler Asia's list are Sunnies Studios' Bea Soriano-Dee; actor AJ Dee; "Lola Androgynous" Tessie Singson; SM Supermalls President Steven Tan; content creator David Guison; ABS-CBN actress Sofia Andres; fashion designer Maya de la Rama, and GMA-7 actress Jasmine Curtis-Smith.
Doc Vicki said her daughter has been choosing the clothes she wanted to wear.She said, "May konting ano na siya... She chooses her dress na, her clothes." But even then, and even when Doc Vicki could just buy everything for her, Scarlet Snow has also been wearing hand-me-down dresses, but not just any kind of hand-me-downs.
Doc Vicki revealed, "Ang ginagawa ko, kapag may damit ako na nagsawa na ako, kunyare branded like Gucci. Madalas Gucci kasi ang ganda ng kulay.
"Ang ginagawa ko, pinapatahi ko for Scarlet, pinapaliit ko to her size. Kasi she's tall and the body [fits]."
For Doc Vicki, it's one way of demonstrating sustainable fashion to Scarlet—such as passing down the clothes Scarlet have outgrown to her granddaughter Siena, the daughter of Cristalle Belo and her husband Justin Pitt.
She said, "I have a granddaughter now, si Siena, puwede rin niyang ipamana yun. So ang sarap na hindi nila nawawala yung dress. "
Aside from her developing taste in fashion, Scarlet Snow's growing interest in art and Pokemons is becoming more apparent. According to Doc Vicki, "She's an artist, she draws. And ang [interest] niya ngayon is Pokemon. So I have to memorize all those Pokemons. "Mas conscious na siya. And mas nakakapag-converse na ako kasi hindi ako masyadong magaling sa laro. Mas type ko yung talking-talking, mother-daughter bonding." And being a mother, she feels blessed so see her daughter's kindness to others. She said, "Habang tumatanda siya, lalong bumabait. So we're very grateful kasi sobrang sweet, sobrang bait."
