MANILA -- Teen actress Julia Barretto, who will topbill the upcoming ABS-CBN series "Mirabella," is dubbed a "breakout star" on her cover appearance on fashion magazine Metro.

The magazine's February 2014 issue, which is dedicated to spring and summer trends, was unveiled Wednesday on its official Facebook page.

On the cover, Barretto is seen wearing a royal blue, off-shoulder dress by Brian Evalle, while her hair and make-up were done by Robbie Pinera and John Valle, respectively. The cover was photographed by Melson Bolongaita.

Barretto's glamorous appearance is a stark contrast to the black motorcycle which she sits on.

On her Instagram page, Barretto shared a preview of her other photos for Metro magazine, which she referred to as "one of my favorite shoots."
