MEGA Magazine September 2013 Issue: Anne Curtis (Cover 2 of 2)

406 pages, two world-class covers shot opposite the globe, one superstar, One MEGA Group. The BIGGEST issue in Philippine fashion glossy history headlines today’s BIGGEST star, Anne Curtis in breathtaking South America. This second cover was shot in Rio de Janiero. Anne sits on the steps of Escadaria Selaron, wearing a two toned corset dress by Bo Parcon, a jacquard printed Eric Delos Santos jacket worn as a skirt, and metallic gold pumps by Primadonna. In contrast to our first cover, this is the Anne the world is more familiar with. The new face of Lactacyd and the ambassadress (or shall we say Anne-bassadress?) of Athena Milk gets festive in Brazil. “We know her by the obvious: as the biggest star in the country. But who we come to discover is a young woman who is authentic and relentlessly hardworking and we begin to understand why her success is very much deserved,” writes MEGA Deputy Editor Meryll Yan on her cover story Annefluence. Always the Woman This month, we at MEGA give the spotlight to the women of the world. We feature the biggest headlines in global fashion today, from discussions with Jimmy Choo’s new Creative Director Sandra Choi on the label’s Autumn/Winter 2013 collection starring Nicole Kidman, the surprise collaboration of Fendi and Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld with Melissa shoes,  the story behind the world’s love for Havaianas, to Hotel Louis Vuitton’s grand opening in Tokyo and the reveal of their newest iconic bag, The W. We celebrate global style through international retail brands from four different continents that have premiered here in Manila for Retail Trend Report, and for Get Ready To Wear, we point up the women that represent the best fashion accessory: charisma. We proudly present the winners of the MEGA Young Designers Competition All Stars: John and Paul Herrera from the House of Herrera take over Designer Profile  and Emir Yamamoto from the House of Rogador is our New Kid on The Block! We’re sure you’ll love the editorials from Sao Paulo, Brazil featuring SM Ladies’ Fashion (Noveau Romance), then to Rio de Janeiro capturing the girl from Ipanema turned sportif chic with Melissa shoes and the works of Jeffrey Rogador and Puey Quinones (Outer Limits).
