Born Mara Hautea Schnittka, Julia Montes began her acting career as a child on television in Goin’ Bulilit. Her name resounded in show business when she played the role of Clara del Valle in “Mara Clara” which was followed by her debut film “Way Back Home” with Kathryn Bernardo.
She celebrated her 18th birthday on March 19, 2013 wearing a Pepsi Herrera gown. Her fairy tale-themed debut was held at Fernwood Gardens with her closest friends, and family, and one of the hottest young actors as her escort, Coco Martin.
The late Pepsi Herrera was loved by many celebrities in the industry of fashion designing. His gowns are a staple in the annual Star Magic Ball and other prestige events.
Julia’s gown was another baby pink number. Her bustier top had tedious sequins running along from the top to the mid of the gown. The gown had hints of sapphire gems for detailing. Her skirt was a layered chiffon poof. Julia wore her hair down and rocked soft waves for a more feminine approach.
