MEGA's 20 Most Stylish 2012: Ruby Gan

I interviewed the lovely, radiant Ruby Gan, co-owner of high-end, one-stop lifestyle boutique Myth and Chocolate Schubar in Manila, for MEGA's 20 Most Stylish 2012 feature in this month's issue. The punchy outfit she wore to the shoot reflected her animated and warm personality.

Ruby is drawn to bold colors and white, and prefers clothes that fit her active lifestyle. She is a staunch supporter of Filipino designers, with many of her favorite design talents' collections housed in her boutique and her own closet.

Here are a few of the fashion tidbits Ruby shared that didn't make it to the mag:

Closet she'd love to raid: Sarah Jessica Parker's, because "she goes from fun and funky to classic, and she has killer shoes!"

Favorite shopping destinations: New York, Hong Kong and Manila

Favorite local designers: Ivarluski Aseron, Joey Samson, James Reyes, Xernan Orticio, Joyce Makitalo, Janina Dizon, Paul Syjuco (These are only a few of her favorites; Ruby said the list goes on!)

Favorite international designers: Karl Lagerfeld, Valentino, Christian Louboutin

Accessory she could not leave home without: Her watch

Last fashion purchase: A glittery Anya Hindmarch bag

Next on her shopping list: "I want a medium Givenchy Pandora in lemon yellow because that one got away. Or a Proenza Schouler clutch in a bright color."
