Blazer Boys: Xian Lim, Matteo Guidicelli and John Prats
by Rhea Manila Santos | June 30, 2012 2:57 AM
Three of the most fashion-forward men in showbiz, Xian Lim, Matteo Guidicelli and John Prats, all looked like they just stepped out of a fashion magazine with their smart casual look. By mixing in bright colors with nicely-tailored blazers, the Kapamilya heartthrobs looked like they were ready to take the runway at any moment. No longer just used for hosting gigs or formal events, blazers can be worn at any occasion, as long as you get the look right. Although more on the dressy side, blazers can look good with polos, collared shirts and even t-shirts, making neckties an optional accessory.
Although he grew up being sporty all his life, Ina, Kapatid, Anak star Xian Lim says that the dressier outfits he now wears to his showbiz commitments help represent his image as a Kapamilya star. Gone are the days when he would walk around in shorts and shirts all day. Now, as an image model for a local clothing company, Xian likes looking sharp and fashionable even in his most casual wear. This model-turned-actor shows that looking good can also help in one feeling good as well. Aside from finding the right fit and color, the material of what he is wearing is just as important as the overall look. “Yeah I think it’s also important because I like wearing anything comfortable. I own a lot of blazers in different colors from different designers but blue is my favorite color,” Xian admits. The singer-actor paired a dark cotton blazer with a striped shirt for a more casual yet trendy feel. He completed the look with brown loafers.
Gone are the days when a blazer looked appropriate only in a business setting. Unless worn with a full suit suit, blazers can look just as good even in the most casual situations. Matteo Guidicelli’s newly-tanned look complements his blazer’s pastel hue. Apart from successfully conquering triathlons, Matteo is making waves in showbiz as well by showing he has the talent to give life to any role, be it on television or in the movies. “I love how I look right now. I’m loving this look!” Matteo shares.
The always trendy John Prats dresses up his t-shirt and jeans with a well-cut blazer fitting for a host of Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition. Although he has tried a multitude of styles, John says his taste has now matured along with the kinds of projects he has been receiving. Formerly a child star, John has grown up into the multi-faceted actor, dancer and TV host that he is today. “Ngayon mas gusto kong look yung relaxed and clean. Kasi before na-try ko na rin naman yung rugged and I tried din different hairstyles din but now since hindi naman ako bumabata, I’m more into the classic look. Polo shirts, jeans, loafers, ganun lang. Simple lang tapos mukhang relax ka lang, para hindi ka na masyadong na-se-stress. Hindi ba minsan kapag sumosobra ka sa fashion wala na yung comfort? Kailangan may balance and you have to be comfortable in what you’re wearing,” John explains.
Already stars in their own right, Xian, Matteo, and John are definitely three of the hottest actors in the industry today. They take pride in how they look just as much as they give their all in their respective careers. Each role they portray, whether as actor, host or singer, is testament to the fact that they have passion for what they do. With their determination, focus, and patience in waiting for their big break, these three men prove that hard work and talent can go a long way.
