ermes outlet online shop PITTED against her character Cindy, Max says she looks like a plain Jane.
hermes handbags replica For Max Collins, the most exciting thing about acting is being able to live different lives.
hermes bag outlet In 2011, Collins transferred from ABS-CBN to GMA 7, starting with a supporting role to Kylie Padilla in ‚ÄúThe Good Daughter.‚ÄĚ¬† The good reviews she got led to a starring role in the Maryo J. de los Reyes drama series ‚ÄúPahiram ng Isang Sandali,‚ÄĚ opposite Dingdong Dantes.
hermes handbags outlet De los Reyes says the 21-year-old Collins was so effective as the character Cindy Reyes, endearing herself to Kapuso viewers.
hermes handbags replica Collins, who is now a regular in ‚ÄúBubble Gang,‚ÄĚ says she studies every character she plays to make sure she gives a realistic performance.
Isabelle Abiera Collins in real life, the actress says she and Cindy are poles apart in nearly all their views. ‚ÄúShe is outgoing, while I am sometimes introverted,‚ÄĚ she tells Living Stars. ‚ÄúWhile she is very emotional, I have more control over my emotions. She expresses what she feels, while I‚Äôm the type who keeps quiet.‚ÄĚ
Collins adds, ‚ÄúCindy is more idealistic about love and life. She grew up rich, a spoiled brat. On the other hand, I‚Äôm the breadwinner in the family.‚ÄĚ The differences between them can also be seen in their taste in fashion. ‚ÄúCindy loves girly things. [Compared to] her, I‚Äôm totally a plain Jane,‚ÄĚ says Collins.
Her first branded bag, a Chanel, is from her mom Belle. ‚ÄúIt was a gift when I became a Channel [V] veejay at 16,‚ÄĚ she says. The brown Michael Kors bag was her gift to herself last

Christmas. ‚ÄúI like the color because (it goes with) different outfits. My other bag, in beige [by Dior], is also overused.‚ÄĚ
Her advice to young girls who plan to collect designer bags: ‚ÄúSince they are pricey, make sure you want to use them for a long time. Don‚Äôt buy a bag with an outrageous color because it will be hard to match it with your outfits. A branded bag is all about quality. You should be able to tell by the material that it‚Äôs for long-term use.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúFor taping, I don‚Äôt use branded bags since I change them all the time. I try to get bags on sale,‚ÄĚ she says. ‚ÄúI bought a pink bag at Charles and Keith. I don‚Äôt use it often because of the color (but) the design is really nice.‚ÄĚ
SHE ADORES this pair of brown suede boots from Charles & Keith.
Collins says she has always preferred sneakers ‚Äúeven though I don‚Äôt look good in them because I‚Äôm tall. To solve the problem, I opt for girly shoes. Finally, I bought myself a pair of high-cut DCs. I match it with shorts and a loose polo (shirt). That‚Äôs what I really wear when I‚Äôm not at work.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúI‚Äôve always been a fan of boots,‚ÄĚ she says,¬† showing her pair of brown suedes from Charles and Keith. ‚ÄúWhen I was younger, I always wore flat boots. Now, I‚Äôve leveled up‚ÄĒthis (pair) has high heels.‚ÄĚ
She first wore her pair of green suede Charles and Keith in ‚ÄúPahiram.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúThey look like space shoes. Everyone on the set loved them. As soon as I saw them, I knew I had to get them.‚ÄĚ
But Collins claims she is not a shoe person and only collects them because of work. ‚ÄúI‚Äôm more into slippers,‚ÄĚ she says and advises others to ‚Äúconsider comfort first when you buy high-heeled shoes. You have to think if you can use them for a long time. Shoes with four- or five-inch heels are just for show. Also, buy shoes from a brand you trust so you know that the quality is good.‚ÄĚ
Collins relies on her stylists to help her keep up with trends. ‚ÄúI also study pegs online. I check out the website lookbook.nu sometimes if no one helps me with my outfits. My wardrobe is really very simple. I like polo and loose shirts, although I wear dresses when I go out with friends at night.‚ÄĚ
Her favorite dress is from Herve and Leger. ‚ÄúI‚Äôve worn it many times‚ÄĒthe first was during an Esquire launch. It‚Äôs easy to wear because it‚Äôs black,‚ÄĚ she says. ‚ÄúAnother favorite is this beige
STYLISH black dress from Mango
skirt from Top Shop. I love it because it‚Äôs so dainty.‚ÄĚ
A gold-black mini tube dress from BCBG is also memorable. ‚ÄúI used it for a photo shoot organized by my talent management PPL Entertainment.‚ÄĚ
Whenever she ‚Äúfeels like having that rocker-look,‚ÄĚ Collins uses her studded leather jacket. A beige knitted sweater, another favorite, is perfect for the ‚Äúsweet look.‚ÄĚ She uses scarves as accessories. ‚ÄúThey make me feel artsy,‚ÄĚ she adds. ‚ÄúMy favorite is a gift from a French friend who visited Manila recently. I didn‚Äôt even know it‚Äôs from Herm√®s until my mom told me.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúI buy accessories everywhere. I‚Äôm more into gold and silver than beaded accessories because [the latter] are harder to match,‚ÄĚ says Collins, as she shows a pair of diamond earrings. ‚ÄúI‚Äôve had this for a very long time. I used to wear this to most events because it goes well with anything.
‚ÄúMy current favorite is a pair of mother-of-pearl earrings. I like that it‚Äôs square (rather than) the usual round,‚ÄĚ she says. ‚ÄúThis spiral gold ring is nice because it adds spunk to a simple outfit.‚ÄĚ
The watch from Marc Jacobs is another gift to herself last Christmas, she says. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs actually what I wear when I don‚Äôt feel like wearing accessories. I like its multi-colored stones.‚ÄĚ
She advises readers to ‚Äúsave up for a good brand, for something that you can wear for a long time. Watches don‚Äôt go out of style unlike other accessories. Get one that you really like and not just something you need for work. Watches can be a lot of fun.‚ÄĚ
Collins, who has been modeling since she was 10, picks up a lot of tips from the makeup artists she works with. ‚ÄúI would see what they put on me and I‚Äôd buy those colors for myself. For my cheeks, I go with brown or dusty rose if I want a darker look. If I want just the tisay-look, I go with rosy pink.‚ÄĚ
HER COLLECTION of earrings in different shapes and sizes
She loves the red and pink lip colors from Mac. ‚ÄúI usually mix them with the nude shade so that my lips wouldn‚Äôt look too bright.‚ÄĚ She suggests, ‚ÄúDon‚Äôt be afraid to go bright. I was hesitant to try them at first (but) my makeup artist said, ‚Äėbagay sa iyo.‚Äô I liked it after a while.‚ÄĚ
Collins says she does not rely on the makeup artist alone. ‚ÄúSometimes, my face can look sharp if the makeup is too thick so I‚Äôve learned to make it look simpler. If the eye makeup looks too strong, I add some light colors.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúYou have to know your face,‚ÄĚ she says. ‚ÄúIf you don‚Äôt, it‚Äôs easy to distort your beauty. You have to know what looks good on you. Then you‚Äôll feel beautiful. Experiment, ask questions, go to stores. Sales agents often present you books that show what color palette or shades are best for you.‚ÄĚ
She loves reading Vogue magazine, especially issues that feature her two favorite actors, Marion Cotillard and Penelope Cruz. ‚ÄúThey‚Äôre my inspirations,‚ÄĚ she says. She has started reading ‚ÄúCleopatra: A Life‚ÄĚ by Stacy Schiff. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs history written in an interesting manner.‚ÄĚ
Collins is also a fan of Brazilian author Paulo Coelho. ‚ÄúI‚Äôve read six of his books and loved them all. The one I‚Äôm reading now is called ‚ÄėEleven Minutes,‚Äô about a woman from a rural town
SHE RAVES about these books from Coelho, Neruda and Schiff.
in Brazil who ends up working as a prostitute in Europe. She saves up to make her life better only to end up kind of lost while trying to find love and happiness. I like that she isn‚Äôt sad when she talks about her experiences. It‚Äôs realistic. It probably happens to a lot of people,‚ÄĚ she notes.
Collins also likes Pablo Neruda‚Äôs love poems. ‚ÄúHis poems are very deep. I‚Äôm very picky when it comes to poetry, but his works speak to me.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúI‚Äôm not a techie,‚ÄĚ says Collins. ‚ÄúI only have my iPhone 4S and my old PowerBook laptop.‚ÄĚ She says her manager Perry Lansigan gave her an iPad Mini last Christmas. ‚ÄúMy brother borrows it all the time. It‚Äôs good that I have my iPhone, if not I‚Äôd be bored during tapings. With the smartphone, I get to watch videos, play games, surf the web.
HER reliable gadgets
‚ÄúI‚Äôve had this laptop for years. I use it more for watching movies and for Internet browsing,‚ÄĚ she says.
