Since its tenth anniversary, Preview magazine has made it a tradition to put together the latest roster of young stars brimming with superstar potential. This June, Preview outdoes itself again with a nature-inspired gatefold cover that boasts of showbiz's next generation of superstars.
The cover of Preview's 13th Anniversary Special this June brings together the brightest Kapamilya and Kapuso stars for the very first time: ABS-CBN's Kim Chiu, Maja Salvador, Carla Humphries, and Melissa Ricks share the cover with GMA-7's Yasmien Kurdi, Rhian Ramos, Lovi Poe, Jewel Mische, and Glaiza de Castro.
Even if the young stars are from rival networks, there was no tension on the set. "All the girls worked really well together when they had to be together," says Preview editorial assistant Alyanna Martinez, who worked closely with the girls during the shoot, "It was like they were friends that already knew each other from before, and there were no awkward moments at all."
The two-day outdoor shoot at Heritage Park also subjected the young stars to scorching heat one day and thunderstorms the next. But despite the extreme weather conditions, all of them gamely posed amidst the wild grass. The nine girls were decked in Prada's Spring/Summer 2008 Fairy collection, which was flown in especially for the shoot.
Another first time was Preview hired two photographers to capture the nine girls as they were transformed into earth goddesses and forest nymphs, nature lovers that personified Preview's go-green theme for their 13th Anniversary. "This is the most elaborate production we've had for a Preview cover so far," says Pauline Juan, editor-in-chief of the number one fashion magazine.
Preview magazine's 13th Anniversary Special is now available in all leading bookstores and magazine stands nationwide.
