These are the faces and bodies that frequently grace the covers of the country's top glossy fashion magazines. Aside from being blessed with the rare combination of beauty, style and elegance, these girls possess that undefinable "It" factor which makes them hot copy for editors and advertisers alike.
Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP.ph) lists 13 of the most bankable fashion cover girls of 2012. To make it to the list, these stars landed at least three covers from identified monthly local fashion magazines: Preview, Cosmopolitan, Mega, Meg, Metro, Chalk, and MOD.

ANGEL LOCSIN. She had to give way to the Superstar Nora Aunor for the Best Actress award, but Angel undoubtedly showed her worth as an actress in her Metro Manila Film Fest entry, One More Try. A certified stunner, Angel never fails to awe viewers in all her 2012 covers: Meg (January), MOD (January-February), Preview (March), Mega (November), and Cosmopolitan (December).
JULIA MONTES. At the young age of 17, Julia quickly rose to fame courtesy of her hit TV series, Walang Hanggan. Julia is definitely 2012's golden girl with her covers: Chalk (March), Meg (May), Preview (August), Metro (August), and Cosmpolitan (November).

GEORGINA WILSON.

ANNE CURTIS. The ultimate "It" girl of her generation, Anne landed a lot more covers if we were to consider non-fashion magazines (take YES! magazine's 10 Best-Dressed and 100 Most Beautiful Stars issues as examples).

Ryan Agoncillo's wife holds the distinction of being the only hot mama in this list as she covered last year for Mega (February), Metro (May), and MOD (December).
HEART EVANGELISTA. Heart made a shocking revelation last year as she finally admitted being in a relationship with Senator Chiz Escudero around October.
