1st Honor: METRO Magazine
My partner George Palmiano will definitely react for my being partial to Metro. But I am overly excited for this issue wherein we've done a fashion shoot for its Styling Smart Section. I mean, come on, this is Metro's big fashion issue, and it feels great to be a part of it (thanks Mela de Luna, fashion ed. of Metro)! And since it's big, they even went to the world's foremost fashion capital, in Paris, to shoot. The cast is also engaging - our very own hottie actor John Lloyd Cruz posing side by side with to-watch-out-for foreign model Vanja Maria of IMG, both looking c'est chic in head-to-toe Louis Vuitton F/W 2011 collection. The cover also comes in two variations - either or, better grab your copies now!

2nd Honor: FHM
FHM refuses to be left behind this time - it also boasts of having dual covers with prominent celebrity figures. On the main cover, the magazine played the art of seduction as the team flew lovely actress Lovi Poe to Thailand, who flaunted her sexy form in two-piece bikini while being shot breathtakingly with an elephant. On the other side, papalicious Derek Ramsay took command of FHM Collections 2011, the annual men's style compendium of the country's no.1 magazine with focus on the sportsmen who are accomplished in skill, and are also impeccable in style.

3rd Honor: PREVIEW Magazine
Anne Curtis returns to Preview, this time in femme fatale mode. The stunning actress and most-sought endorser turns red-headed while donning couture fashion by international Pinoy designer Michael Cinco. Get high on fashion with this issue, definitely!
