Maine Mendoza has been named Preview's surprising style-setter of 2017.

Maine Mendoza doesn't regard herself a fashionista.

Nevertheless, the 22-year-old Kapuso star found herself included on Preview Magazine’s "Best Dressed List" for 2017.

She was named the “Surprising Style-Setter.”

Thanks to her talented team of stylists from Liz Uy’s StyLIZed Studio, Maine learned a thing or two on how to dress herself up.

Her fashion guidelines: “Keep it simple, keep it classy, nothing outlandish, invest in classic items you can never go wrong with.”

Apart from the classic must-have closet pieces such as plain white tee, classic white polo, or little black dress, Maine already began her investment in more “luxurious and well-deserved accessories.”

Her latest purchase?

Her dream bag: a Chanel 2.55 flap bag.

As one of the label’s most popular styles, the bag could retail up to $4900 or PHP248,349.

She purchased it in Hong Kong.

Maine also owns a Gucci Dionysius, which she has used only twice so far.


One of Maine’s go-to online shops, Net-A-Porter, sells it from $1,748 to $6,983 (PHP88,595 to PHP353,923).

Aside from her prized Chanel and Gucci bags, the young actress-host also has a Prada tote bag and a Celine bag, which was her first fashion splurge.

But still, Maine prefers simplicity.

She would only purchase these luxury items whenever she has a bonus pay.

Comfort has also become her style priority.

Maine remarked, “I’ve realized that as you grow up, you’ll be more concerned about comfort.”
