Everyone close to me knows that I am so in love with fashion. It does not seem like it when I dress up on ordinary days, but my increasing number of fashion magazines at my dorm room is an attestation to my love for anything chic and glam. So last month, I bought my first ever Preview magazine. As the magazine’s tagline states, it is the best-selling fashion magazine in the Philippines. I don’t know if that is correct (like when all novels at bookstores boast that they are best-sellers), one thing I am sure of though is that Preview shouts FASHION from the cover to the inside pages.
My first Preview mag is that of Cristine Reyes on the cover. Cristine frequented men’s mags so it was quite a surprise (for her and for many of us) that Preview got her to do a cover shoot. Nevertheless, the Louis Vuittons she donned suited her. She looked very sophisticated and captured the vintage-nostalgic effect that Preview was going for (a lot of help came from the six-digit LV pieces and the cat’s eye make up, too). Steamy!
A Php 150 magazine is a little expensive for my heavily budgeted income, but hey, it’s a lot cheaper comparing to those adorable shoes I’ve been eyeing at Parisian. And so I bought my second Preview magazine with Solenn Heussaff on the cover. I never really fancied her beauty, but when I saw the Preview cover two days ago, she won me hands-down. Solenn is not your typical controversial celebrity; she is a fashion designer and a make-up artist at the same time. Whoa to that!
Aside from the gorgeous Tory Burch 2011 Resort Collection Solenn sported, Preview launched the first ever Augmented Reality issue. Curious? Just grab a copy of December 2010 issue of Preview, then go to http://www.stylebible.ph/preview_augmented_reality/. Btw, you must have a webcam, and you will be able to travel the world with Solenn. So cool!
Well, I cannot wait for the new year’s edition. Let’s all have a blast this Christmas. 🙂
