MANILA, Philippines – For the first month of 2013, two US-based singers unleashed their glamorous side for two women’s magazines in the country.

Filipino-American-Mexican singer Jessica Sanchez, who won first runner-up in the 11th season of “American Idol,” wears a black form-fitting cocktail dress with gold embroidery on the cover of Mega Magazine’s January 2013 issue.

Sanchez was photographed by ace lensman Mark Nicdao for her first magazine cover, with styling by Patrick Galang, LA Ferriols and Jef Fronda.

Meanwhile, American country singer Taylor Swift appears on the January 2013 cover of Cosmopolitan Philippines, a women’s magazine that focuses on relationships, sex, beauty and self-improvement.

On the cover, the “You Belong with Me” singer is seen wearing a shiny red dress with a plunging neckline.

“Drop everything now! Fearless Taylor Swift is our red-hot January cover girl,” Cosmopolitan Philippines said on its Facebook page on Wednesday.
