6 Filipino celebs whose Eras Tour outfits made the whole place shimmer

Trading friendship bracelets, guessing surprise songs, watching the crowd go wild over a re-recording announcement, and getting proposed to at the last chorus of “Love Story (Taylor’s Version)” are only a few trademarks that have made Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour unforgettable. 

Since the first show in March 2023, concert-goers of all ages have done their part in keeping their newfound friendships alive in and out of the show. Even celebrity Swifties have been keen on partaking in the concert’s togetherness. 

Local celebrity sightings were abuzz at Swift’s most recent Eras Tour stops in Tokyo and Melbourne. Even the lack of a Philippines show didn’t stop them from sending their love to the singer-songwriter alongside thousands of Swifties at each sold-out show. From turning heads in their concert fits to singing their hearts out with international Swifties, these Filipino artists let their inner fangirls shine for a night in outfits that never go out of style.

Anne Curtis

Is there any better flex than going to the Eras Tour on your birthday? Flying solo at the concert is already a once-in-a-lifetime moment, but Anne Curtis was there to prove that seeing Swift perform in person is best experienced with lifelong friends. Together with Isabelle Daza, Martine Ho, and Nicole Warne Shadbolt, Curtis celebrated her 39th birthday at the Eras Tour in Melbourne. Ho said it best: It truly was the “best estrogen feminine energy night ever,” with Curtis flaunting her own version of Swift’s “Bejeweled” bodysuit—a Michael Leyva original that she paired with a silver Valentino bag.

Andrea Brillantes

We love a Gen Z nod to pop culture. Witty as ever, Andrea Brillantes was a head-turner at the Eras Tour in Tokyo, wearing the same life-sized French fries costume that Swift had in the “You Need to Calm Down” music video. Brillantes’ rhinestone hamburger bag, also alluding to the music video, was the perfect accessory to put the concert fit together. Sure enough, her creativity isn’t limited to her annual Halloween gimmicks. She has a knack for concepts, and her Eras Tour get-up by Neric Beltran is solid evidence of that.

If the Eras Tour was a fairytale, Alexa Ilacad would be the main character. She was a vision in pastels at the Tokyo Dome, donning a frilly pink dress with matching butterfly clips in her hair. Straight out of a fantasy movie, Ilacad was living proof that there’s no harm in prioritizing style over comfort—especially when you’re “in your best dress, fearless.”

Kathryn Bernardo

Melbourne was “full of shimmer” as Kathryn Bernardo showed up to the Eras Tour in a classic concert shirt to match the friendship bracelets she exchanged with Aussie Swifties. Together with her best friend Arisse de Santos, Bernardo lived through every performance unapologetically. She didn’t even miss a beat to “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (Taylor’s Version),” belting out every lyric with the crowd. 

Michelle Vito

Michelle Vito made her Swiftie dream come true at the Eras Tour in Tokyo with her boyfriend Enzo Pineda. In an elegant tribute to the “Speak Now” era, Vito attended the concert in a lilac co-ord set from Juliana Studios that best expressed how “enchanted” she was to see Swift perform live. 

Criza Taa

Ambition, when channeled properly, can take you places. And for Criza Taa, it brought her straight to the barricades of the Eras Tour at the Tokyo Dome. It’s been a long time coming, but she stopped at nothing to see Swift in the flesh (with the best seats in the house) as soon as the pop star announced her Japan show dates. She triumphantly shared front-row seats with her best friend, actor and TikTok personality Esnyr Ranollo, both decked out in their best “Bejeweled” attire. It was a night to remember that was worth every prayer and manifestation.
