"Baduy talaga ako dati,"Angel Locsin laughs as shereminisces about her former self,"As in, kadiri. Tamad kasiako noon maging fashionista, to experiment with myself." It is evident howsix years in showbiz have changed all that, as Angel graces the cover of Preview Magazine this August.
Angel describes her personal style as one that mergesstyle and comfort, just like AngelActive, the fashion line she has put up as aproduct of her fashion studies in London. Available in SM Department Store, theline offers lifestyle wear for active women.
"Feeling ko kasi mas maramingginagawa ang girls kesa sa lalaki," Angel says, pointing out thatmany women are wives and mothers who juggle the demands of family, career, andcaring for themselves. "As a woman, inisip ko ba't di tayo gumawa ngbrand na maganda yung style, maganda yung quality, peroaffordable."
It's a practical, common-man statement from a star whohas become a household name, thanks to all her primetime shows andendorsements. Angel clearly has her feet on the ground, as she tells Preview,"Of course it's nice to be given special treatment, kaya lang minsan masmasaya yung nacha-challenge ka, o nagagawa mo yung gusto mo, yungsariling diskarte mo."
From independent living in London to the toughtransition between rival networks, Angel is clearly up for any challenge thatlife may throw at her.
What's next for Angel? "I don't really make long-termplans. I'm not the type who will think about what will happen to me in fiveyears" she says. "But with everything I'm doing now, binibigay ko 110% ko.So hindi ako natatakot kung sa'n man ako mapunta because I always givemy best."
