Landing a magazine cover nowadays can only mean three things: the celebrity’s a hot property, she is an icon in her field, mostly from the fashion or the showbiz industry, or a young star is simply proclaiming that she just turned into a “woman”. May it be for Mega or Preview, Uno or Rogue, FHM or Maxim, Cosmopolitan or Marie Claire, Metro, Manual, Meg or Candy, and whether dressed or bare, sweet or wild, fashionable or sexy, for art or for “career move”, being a cover girl is something a female celebrity would kill for.
I listed down ten (10) of which I think are the hottest and most beautiful covers and cover girls of 2009.
10. GEORGINA WILSON- ROGUE (May)
Georgina Wilson never fails to deliver beauty and charm, but this cover proves that she can also be dark and fierce. A little more of the background and Georgina’s body could have made this cover more interesting though.
9. TWEETIE DE LEON, CARMINA VILLAROEL, MEGAN YOUNG- MEGA (July)
Put these three modelesque ladies on one cover and get that classic supermodel vibe. Tweetie De Leon proves that she doesn’t age as she joins younger beauties Carmina Villaroel and Megan Young who are equally stunning and fresh in Mega’s May issue.
8. TISHA SILANG- UNO (April)
Former beauty queen Tisha Silang will put your kitchen on fire as she unleashes her sexy side in UNO’s April issue. This cover shows that with the right model and execution, a not-so-special concept can turn into a classy hot cover!
7. JO-AN BITAGCOL- MEGA (September)
Seeing Pinay supermodel Jo-an Bitagcol on the cover of a fashion magazine is truly a breath of fresh air, especially if you are tired of seeing actresses, dressed and glamorized, trying to look like real working models. Jo-an proves that a real model still looks fab and fierce even without heavy make-up or avant-garde outfit.
6. ISABELLE DAZA- PREVIEW (April)
Surely, you can see Angelina Jolie on this, but Isabelle Daza is still all present in this April issue of Preview as she leaves her sweet image and dares to show her wild side. The guy below adds to the animalistic appeal of this cover.
5. CELINE LOPEZ- UNO (June)
UNO’s power to put socialites on their cover is once again proven as Celine Lopez graces it’s June issue. The minimal use of colors and letters plus Celine and her androgynous appeal make this one of the most classy covers of 2009.
4. ORNUSA CADNESS- UNO (October)
I’m not a fan of Ornusa’s look but in UNO’s October issue, she manages to project strong and sexy even with arrows piercing her body.
3. ANNE CURTIS- PREVIEW (November)
Anne Curtis is probably the most favorite actress of many designers, stylists, and fashion editors. Her amazing bone structure and modelesque features landed her a cover of almost all local magazines. In Preview’s November issue, Anne once again proves that she deserves the admiration she gets because of her beauty and fashion sense. Anne Curtis can just sit down and still get a picture that can be part of high-fashion spreads.
2. KAREN PAMINTUAN- UNO (March)
Filipina model Karen Pamintuan surely makes a big big splash in this March issue of UNO. Karen’s look perfectly fits into the raw and haunting appeal of this crafty cover.
1. SOLENN HEUSSAFF- ROGUE (September)
Model, make-up artist, and Penshoppe’s face Solenn Heussaff lends her beauty as she graces the cover of Rogue’s September issue. Cover girl wannabes should take a 101 lesson with Solenn so they get to learn what classy, sexy, elegant and tasteful modeling is. This cover is just….. POWER!
