She makes the cover of every major Philippine fashion rag year after year; is muse to the likes of Inno Sotto, Jojie Lloren, and Ivarluski Aseron; and gives the money shot to every style and entertainment photographer who rushes the red carpet when she arrives at an industry event. In other words, as far as celebrity fashionistas go, Gretchen Barretto is the end-all and be-all—as established by the countless best-dressed lists her name has graced over time. And since the month of September to stylephiles is like January to the rest of the world—it’s when the fashion year starts, so to speak—it’s only fitting that La Greta grace the cover of YES! Magazine’s September issue for the year 2010.

In the issue, Gretchen gives YES! access to her personal laptop where photos of her enviable (and extensive) wardrobe, footwear, handbags, and jewelry are stored. Also included are photo chronicles of her private trips abroad, as well as behind-the-scenes moments of her work in showbiz. Needless to say, in every one of these mementos, Gretchen’s style is the centerpiece.

“I like beautiful things,” the Magkaribal actress tells YES!, as she has in many of her other interviews. Indeed, browsing through Gretchen’s fashion photos is like perusing an issue of Vogue—she wears pieces from Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Stella McCartney, Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, and Balenciaga, as well as couture by the crème de la crème of Philippine fashion.

Gretchen’s longtime friend and go-to designer Inno Sotto says of his number one client, “She’s not a vavavoom, e…but she stands out. She has a built-in star presence.” A testament to the fact that in Gretchen's case, it’s not the clothes who make the woman--it's the woman who makes the clothes.
