Patty Laurel's Style Tip: Be Confident Yet Comfortable

The fresh-faced lifestyle blogger, events host, and now, college professor gives her personal kikay reco for busy studying gals.

Patty LaurelUber smart, oozing with confidence, and radiant in the simplest of outfits--even sans makeup-- Patty Laurel makes the perfect media personality.

She's definitely come a long way from the UAAP courtside reporter who used to keep guys glued to the TV screen. Patty went on to best other contenders and become an MTV VJ, then stepped in to become a regular host on the Studio 23 morning show Breakfast.

Today, she continues to be an all-around media sweetheart, sharing her smarts to college students as a Communications professor in Ateneo, writing about her travel experiences, updating her lifestyle blog, modeling for fashion magazines, and doing the occasional events hosting. No doubt about it, she's one true-blue "passionista".

Oh, and she's also set to wed schoolmate-turned-love of her life (not to mention certified hottie), commercial editor and productions company owner, Patrick Filart. This girl seems to have it all!

The pretty college prof-cum-blogger gamely shared advice on scoring impeccable skin and style smarts to Cosmo.ph's college chick readers. Check out our exclusive interview with Patty below!
