When she goes out shopping, StarStruck V Ultimate female survivor Sarah Lahbati says she does not really go for branded items.
"As long as matibay 'yung products, 'yun ang importante. Matibay at maganda," she told Cosmo.ph during her visit to the Summit Media office recently (along with other Starstruck V finalists).
Truth is, the 19-year-old showbiz newbie is not really fond of shopping, especially when it comes to clothes. In fact, she says, "I just shop depende sa mood ko. If I feel like I want to dress rock chic today...parang depende rin sa mood ko [kung ano ang isusuot ko]."
However, ever since she won the fifth installment of the reality-based artista search, Sarah has become more particular about her clothes and more conscious about how she looks when she goes out in public.
Sarah says it's important to be well-dressed because "Kung lalabas ako na ngarag-ngaragan ang buhok ko, siyempre parang nakakahiya rin naman. Kasi, para sa akin, I'm trying to be an example sa youth."
Right now, Sarah appears with her Starstruck batchmates on GMA-7's new Sunday variety show, Party Pilipinas. The young star hopes to become part of Dingdong Dantes' and Marian Rivera's upcoming reunion teleserye, Endless Love, or the second Captain Barbell series of Richard Gutierrez.
