With summer officially in full swing this April, Preview magazine hails the season’s “Golden Girl,” the 18-year-old Gabbi Garcia.
On her cover debut, the Encantadia star's beauty mesmerizes like a sea goddess, and glows with her striking morena skin.
Shot at the luxurious Bayside Villa of Solaire Resort and Casino, which has its own dipping pool, "Gabbi was such a pro to work with," said Preview Editor-in-Chief Isha Valles.
Creative Director Vince Uy, who took charge of the shoot, said, "She's the type where you feel like you are not working because she's so easy to shoot.
"In fact we chilled and swam for a bit in between takes."
Highlighting the jewelry pieces she wore for this month's "luxury" issue, Gabbi's clothes were "sleek, minimalist, and sexy."
Valles added, "We asked different Filipino designers to create black dresses with asymmetric cuts and cutouts.
"We were very careful, though, because Gabbi is only 18 years old, so it was important to avoid it being too revealing or too sexy."
