MANILA, Philippines – After playing Coco Martin’s leading lady in top-rating soap “Walang Hanggan,” Julia Montes once again portrays a sophistication beyond her years as she appears on the cover of local fashion magazine Preview.

Montes wore a gold bodysuit by internationally renowned Filipino designer Kermit Tesoro, who also created the outfit that Lady Gaga wore on one of her album covers.

Preview said the theme for its latest issue, which features the actress, is Old Hollywood.

“Julia Montes is our golden girl for August!” the magazine said on its Facebook page.

Montes was shot against a white background by photographer Pat Dy. She was styled by Liz Uy, with Krist Bansuelo and Raymond Santiago in charge of the makeup and hair, respectively.

While her look for Preview was glamorous and over-the-top, the “Walang Hanggan” star stressed that she prefers to keep things simple.

“Style ko is more on classic but elegant,” she told the magazine. “For me, simplicity is beauty.”

Like actress Bea Alonzo, Montes appears on two magazine covers this August. Aside from Preview, she can only be seen with Alonzo and “Princess And I” star Kathryn Bernardo on the cover of Metro Magazine.
