Metro Magazine takes the subject of genuity and realness into its pages as it rolls out the new, October Hot List issue, an annual roster of the most talked-about trends and personalities shaping the seasons ahead.
Taking the lead is the one and only Nadine Lustre, adorned in all Gucci as she lounges in her oriental, vintage boudoir.
While it’s definitely not Nadine’s first Metro cover, this month’s special feature seized the opportunity to quiz her on her own hot-button issues. Does Nadine live her life on her own terms? What does she say about others’ opinions about her? What of the drama that seems to follow her? Does she consider herself a strong, modern woman?
Honest, real and opinionated, Nadine’s “unfiltered” response is a fascinating look into the life of a modern celebrity, navigating her way between hyper-connected exposure and maintaining her individuality.
In a gimmick-driven world, Metro Magazine is always out to feature those who go against the grain. Such can be found in it’s Hot List, featuring its top 36 need-to-know names and trends in fashion, beauty, as well as lifestyle. Learn about the game-changing designs of Maria Grazia Chiuri of Dior, the continued rise of the "working-girl" trope dominating silhouettes, plus the viral success of eponymous makeup brands of Kim Kardashian and Pat McGrath.
Locally, Metro Magazine’s Hot List also seeks to commend the talents of the Philippine fashion industry, such as this year’s photographer of choice, Patrick Diokno; celebrity makeup artist, Jelly Eugenio, and hair-styling extraordinaire, Mong Amado. All of whom represent the spirit of the times, and their respective crafts at its most current state.
Last but not least, in a grand reveal feature, the October issue officiates the line-up for this year’s Metrowear, an annual fashion show featuring the most influential designers of the season. Young, ambitious and on the rise, these three designers will set stage for the Metrowear fashion show later this month.
Feast your eyes on the meticulous tailoring of Mark Bumgarner, whose regal gowns have made him a sought-after designer for influencers globally. Marvel at the exquisite daintiness and romance of Michael Leyva’s creations, which made him an instant favorite for showbiz royalty in Philippines. Then, there is Patty Ang, whose fresh take on the feminine silhouette has won over a coveted demographic of affluent women.
It’s all set here in the bold and daring #MetroOctober2017 issue, bundled with the latest Metro Weddings issue, featuring Anne Curtis. Copies are now available in newsstands nationwide, and in the Noink app.
