Wish he might: Advice to Alden
Posted on

I never expected to be hooked on a local TV show, but there are things you don’t know about me.
Something was causing me anxiety last September and when it really got bad, I found that watching reruns of Aldub on YouTube made me forget the problem I was facing.

It was mostly Lola Tinidora (Jose Manalo) and Lola Tidora (Paolo Ballesteros—wooh!) who made me chuckle with the “sugod bahay” portion when they enter houses of the poor and give them prizes, plus interactions of Eat Bulaga‘s Tito, Vic and Joey from the studio.
That Alden Richards was cute was a plus for me.

Soon I became obsessed, but lately not so much, because I’m finding Alden less and less cute each day.
It all starts when he wears thick foundation which makes him too porcelain or feminine.
Then everything goes downhill when he wears scary printed tops with the folded sleeves, like these:

Or cheap T-shirts, which make him look like the (house) boy next door.

It’s not that difficult to dress well, since Alden is already blessed with the face, the physique, and the height (5’11”).
First, he needs to lose the foundation he’s been using.
Many male celebrities, reportedly including Piolo Pascual and Dingdong Dantes, use MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NC42 because it gives them a tanned look onscreen.
Alden already has good skin, so thick foundation doesn’t make sense. MAC’s NC42 is also too dark for him but the powder might definitely work because it gives a second-skin finish that is natural and un-espasol.
Next, he needs to stick to neutrals, plains (not prints), classic shapes, for example:

To whoever is styling him, take some fashion pegs from one of my favorite shopping sites, lagarconne.

Bottom line:
1) Lose the espasol.
2) No to printed tops and cheap T-shirts.
3) No to jeggings and tight pants.
4) Yes we know you have biceps and that’s hot. But no need to roll up your sleeves.
5) Invest in good shoes (not Skechers).
6) You’re already cute. Keep it simple, classy, not trendy. Less is more.
