The month of June marks the celebration of independence of the Philippines. We have been living and experiencing freedom in so many ways that we enjoyed. The commemoration of our emancipation and patriotism has inspired the June 2014 issue of Metro Magazine. Jodilly Pendre and Katarina Rodriguez, who are contestants of Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 2 have been chosen as cover girls. The country will always remember their participation on the modelling reality show where they end up only a few steps away from taking home the grand title. For us, winning the show is not the only thing that counts. It is through their efforts to advocate the beauty of our bloodline that makes them real winners.
The cover concept showed liberation from the stereotype safe image of Filipina into modern, fearless and fashionable women. The issue also highlights the appreciation of our world class fashion talents with its tag line – WE LOVE LOCAL. To top it all, we are glad to see models back on where they really belong. The two of them owned the cover and the pose itself says that they are in-charge no matter what.
Aside from being thankful for our heroes, the magazine cover plus the girls makes it right to feel the word “Proud”.
Bless the models!
