Her stylists Kim and Boop Yap talk about her look for the premiere night of Barcelona: A Love Untold.

The Teen Queen is back on the big screen. This time around, Kathryn Bernardo takes on her most challenging role to date. At the premiere night of her new film co-starring Daniel Padilla, the 20-year-old actress gave us a hint of what we can expect from her character in Barcelona: A Love Untold—fiercer, bolder, and noticeably sexier than what her fans are used to.

Styled by Kim and Boop Yap, Kathryn stepped up her red carpet game with a leg-baring number by Martin Bautista accented with her gold clutch and strappy heels. She played with shades of browns and nudes for her makeup and then tied her sultry look together with long curly tresses.

In an interview with Preview, her stylists revealed to us everything you need to know about Kathryn’s OOTN. Read all about it below.

This look seems a little different than what we're used to seeing on Kathryn. What style direction were you going for?

“We actually had three options for Kathryn for the premiere night, but in the end, we went with a sultry all-red ensemble made of silk fabric that was imported specifically for this dress. We wanted a look that was aligned with her character in the movie Barcelona, so the dress is very reminiscent of the passionate style of Spanish women. Kath’s gold strappy heels (Stuart Weitzman) were also flown in and arrived a day before the event.”

Please tell us about the dress. How was the collaboration with Martin Bautista?

“We love working with Martin. It is always such a breeze because he’s so professional, works efficiently, and always goes the extra mile to ensure that every dress is perfect, even if it means working during his vacation. He is also very familiar already with Kath’s style and preference so it makes it a whole lot easier to work with him as our ideas jive well together.”

What was Kathryn's overall participation in the whole styling process? Did she specifically request for anything from you guys?

“When we’re styling Kath, it’s always an interactive process. We randomly send each other pegs in our chat group whenever we feel like a certain look will match Kath's style. We also prepare the clothes early so that we have time to do fitting in case any alterations need to be done. It’s so fun to style her because she’s always willing to try new things especially when it comes to fashion.”

Speaking of new things, should we expect a different version of Kathryn Bernardo after this?

“You can definitely expect to see her in different styles as we do not want to limit her to just one look. Kath’s style is always evolving which makes it exciting to style her. We keep up with different fashion trends but her personal style will always be blended in with these looks.”
