The holidays may be far from over but that doesn’t mean we cannot give you, our dear readers, a present in January. Behold our opening salvo for the new year—fresh, fierce and filled with a new hope.
Effervescent, beguiling and at the cusp of many great possibilities, Liza Soberano faces the new year with a milestone to celebrate. Turning 18, she steps into new territories and gamely assumes the thrill and responsibilities that comes with it.
Fashion, beauty and lifestyle knows no rest as we pack this issue to the brim with stories that will tickle your every fancy. From the tale of Lesley Mobo and a juxtaposition of black and white; filtered beauty looks from the runways and peek at Ellie Goulding collaboration for MAC; plus, our thoughts of Paris and terrorism, there is so much to read and experience this month. With a chance to start anew, we got you covered on all bases. Do things with a (big) bang, we always say.
While we may be barely settling into 2016, we have a good feeling about it already.
The energy is frenetic and frenzied; Ready or not, here we come.
