Bee Urgello’s Closet is as Glamorous as We Thought

Bags, shoes and couture gowns make the closet of this Cebuana Queen Bee a glamorous sight.

The crown is the first thing that caught our eye once we entered Bee Urgello’s all-white closet. Sitting on a pillow in one of the most visible spots in the space, it’s the diadem that’s usually awarded to the lady who wins Queen Philippines, the pageant for alternatives. It’s surprising that it’s here then, considering Bee had won the title back in 2011. “Mommy Cary,” she says, referring to revered designer and Queen organizer Cary Santiago, “told me that I can keep it here, because I’m the Queen that’s most active in events.”

Bee’s all-white closet allows her pieces (and herself) to truly stand out. Her beloved collection of Chanel bags are a focal point, though.

Of course, it’s not like Bee needs a crown to stand out. Whenever she makes an appearance, she does so in carefully thought-out ensembles that make the most of her enviable height and svelte figure—and the various Best Dressed awards certainly reinforce her sense of style.

“Dressing up makes me happy, and it completes me,” Bee shares as she shows us the different outfits she had planned out for the shoot—namely a body-conscious red dress, and a black and white combination that she felt played up her proportions. As we go through the rest of the clothes, she told us to concentrate on the racks that stood by the closet door. “Those are the ones that I haven’t worn yet,” she explains.

“Its just my favorites,” Bee answers with a laugh when we ask her why some shoes get displayed outside her cabinets. For easier reference, she devotes each shelf to a certain brand–this one features her Yves Saint Laurent pairs.

The items that fell under that category actually took up two racks, filled from end to end with pieces from brands like H&M and Zara, as well as creations from local designers. “I always say that shopping is better than sex. A dress or shoes will never hurt or leave you like a man does,” she says with a laugh.

The collection shows off different sides to Bee’s style—from the trendy see-through sheaths with floral embroidery, to the more classic looks of jersey jumpsuits and black dresses. Then there’s her collection of evening gowns, with figure-hugging silhouettes and intricate detailing, that she wears for her official appearances. A yellow dress with cut-out details from Cary Santiago and a blue one with a bejeweled neckline from Harvey Cenit hang at the end of one rack. “Those are really new. The one from Harvey Cenit I’d just picked up,” Bee explains. “I can’t wait to wear them!”

Of course, its not just all about Chanel–Bee’s other designer bags het their own space inside one of the wardrobes, and are arranged neatly for when she’s in the mood to switch it up.

But it’s not just about clothes—with its white walls and cabinetry, Bee’s closet has various areas to display the other part of her collection: her shoes and bags. “They’re my babies,” Bee jokes as she shows us her Chanel bags, which occupy their own shelf on one end of the room. Next to it, a wooden shelf houses her designer shoes, organized by brand for easier dressing.

Drawers on one side are filled with various accessories, and Bee laughs as we move to open another cabinet. “Don’t! Those are my pang-balay,” she exclaims. “Not stylish at all.”
