3 Ways Kylie Verzosa is a Rising Global Power Figure

3 Ways Kylie Verzosa is a Rising Global Power Figure


Kylie Verzosa’s foray into fashion, beauty, show business, and entrepreneurial ventures marks a journey of ascent for her new title–a rising global name

For a previously coronated queen on stage, hanging up her sash led to the beginning of her ascent in another realm: from beauty queen to business royalty, then to an ambassador that gives local talent global renown. Now, an actor internationally recognized with an unmistakable level of influence. The star proves herself more than her crown and title: a award-winning actress and an inclusive entrepreneur. Her burgeoning career in these different sectors also symbolize the rising globalization of the Philippine industry. Led by the likes of Heart Evangelista in Fashion Week and Liza Soberano’s Hollywood debut today, Kylie Verzosa is also one of the emerging trailblazers giving Philippine talent newfound global relevance. In her ventures, she’s not just well-known—she’s influential.

In Beauty and Her Brand

Seldom does the glitz and glamor of pageantry fit the typical definition of an entrepreneur, but Kylie Verzosa makes a fine case for the beauty-and-brains businesswoman. Her transition and notable entry into the domain is SOLÁ, making its way into the niche shapewear market. By offering women body-friendly pieces that fuse confidence and comfort, Kylie masterfully handles the everyday undergarment needs and makes her brand the go-to for body support. With this, she adds two new colors to the SOLÁ palette: Milk and Sand. The former’s opaque white tone makes it a versatile addition that complements both cool and warm skin tones. The latter on the other hand, offers a more understated nude option thoughtfully made to blend and hug your figure. With Kylie being the gift the keeps on giving, the drop also comes with a surprise.

Verzosa is forging her way as a global leader with a collaboration between SOLÁ and L’ORÉAL Paris, marking this as the latter’s first partnership with a Philippine brand. The launch of the sand hue coincides with L’ORÉAL Paris’ newest ‘Nude Attitude’ collection, a part of their Infallible Matte Lipsticks. SOLÁ and L’ORÉAL Paris are a match made in heaven, as both brands are aligned towards the same direction—shaping not just bodies and faces with these nude shades, but also building confidence and empowerment for the wearer.

From Local to Global Fashion

Kylie Verzosa has also injected a fresh breath of vitality into the esteemed Cannes Festival—event that celebrates the sheer breadth of global talent in the arthouse space. While the past couple of years have seen a flurry of Asian names arrive in the French town for the festival, Kylie’s appearance last May made for one of the most sartorial outings spotted on the Croisette’s promenade thus far. Establishing herself as a fashion darling of the international scene, Kylie stole the seene in two looks by Filipino designer Mark Bumgarner. The first was drama and mystery combined—a structured serpentine silhouette crafted from black French lace and decorated with black crystals.

The second was pure elegance and refinement; the blush pink and rosette accents adorned along the bodice left a remarkable impression to onlookers and attendees alike. Being a fervent supporter of Filipino creators, Kylie elevated Filipino recognition and visibility to unprecedented levels.

Also in Mark Bumgarner, Kylie received the Best Actress award at the 2022 Distinctive International Arab Festivals Awards (DIAFA) in Dubai. This was the beauty queen turned actress’s first leading role, and her excellent performance is another testament to Filipino talent shining on the global stage. Continuing to be a staunch advocate for wearing Filipino designers, Kylie accepts the award for her acting prowess, successfully turning even the world of fiction to an area of her expertise. In her speech, she says, “Nothing ever beats the feeling of winning something for your own country because of your own hard work.”
