Here's 11 examples of Filipina athletes shedding their on-court threads for a more glammed up look.
We often see them on the court as the fierce with their hair tied into a bun or ponytail, drenched in sweat, with little to no make-up, and wear not-too-loose jerseys. They make our eyes pop and our mouths agape in great awe everytime they do something incredible on the court. But, nothing can compare to the astonishment when we see them in clad not in those athlete uniforms but in stunning glam outfits, as they are styled gorgeously in alluring poses you’d never probably seen them striking before.
The Phenom superstar volleybelle set her pink Creamline Cool Smashers uniform aside for one night and dared to bare her back in this Edwin Tan sparkly maroon dress.
Her impact on the court is so palpable, just like her presence in the red carpet as she modelled this pleated royal blue gown by Francis Libiran.
Fille took a night off from her athletic and home duties as she graced the Influence Asia 2017 Award Show in this elegant black maxi dress.
She is feared in her vicious spikes and fatal serves on the court, but looking through this gorgeous snap of her in lacy mini dress may kiss the fright away. And who would have thought that she’s already a proud mom to a beautiful baby girl?
Considered as one of the best blockers in the country now, she consistently amazed us on how she was able to do her role in their every game. But off-the-court, she also doesn’t fail to stun us, such as in copping the modern Filipiniana look for the recently-concluded Gawad Geny Lopez Bayaning Pilipino Awards.
The undersized middle blocker automatically exudes her beast mode attitude during their games. And it seems that she also brings her bright, defiant yet sexy character on ordinary days, or in this case night, as she strutted the luminescent streets of Bonifacio Global City in her mini backless red dress paired with black stilettos.
From stunning us with her exemplary performance as a two-time UAAP champion and award-winning volleybelle, the fierce lass of Cocolife Asset Managers mesmerized everyone as she slayed Influence Asia 2017’s red carpet in plunging black gown.

One of the athletic department’s bombshell has been fascinating us with her beauty and toned bod which also paved the way for her to land in the covers of magazines and became part of the sexiest women poll of a prominent men’s magazine in 2015. Proof? Just look at these glamorous shots of her during a company event!
Far from the stereotyped look of a typical volleyball player, the UAAP Season 79 MVP is a certified kikay! Behold how she caught everyone’s attention in this ruffled white slit gown tailored by Francis Libiran.
Her name may not be to resonant unlike the other ladies included in this roster, but this 21-year-old artistic gymnast was one of the representatives of the Philippines in the 2014 Youth Olympics held in China. Aside from her achievements as a young athlete, Ava also had another milestone in her life as she finished her high school education in Pennsylvania. And her way to display her happiness? Snapping a photo of her in black and white mini dress which she wore on her graduation in June! Congrats, Ava!
She maybe the woman of steel in weightlifting competitions, but the 2016 Rio Olympics Silver medalist is one graceful lady in this lacy blue ensemble and silver stilettos.
