best self

I admire women who not only have a strong sense of self, but more so those who are not afraid to take risks. Case in point, our cover star Maine Mendoza. Her refreshing allure and natural candor has redefined what it takes to be star. Her quick rise to fame is certainly a phenomenon, and three years after her debut she is still as relevant—taking her career into new heights. When detractors predicted her swift demise, she proved them wrong in her own pace and time, continuously carving out her rightful place in the industry. The beauty of this entire study is that she does it by simply being herself—no pretensions, no gimmicks. Needless to say, we should have more women like Maine, strong-willed, determined and ready to take on…

letter of the month

Dear MEGA, June has always been my favorite issue of your magazine ever since you had Regine Velasquez on the cover back in 2010 wearing just a T-shirt and couture pieces. For me, that was an iconic fashion moment that really gave a statement on Pinoy Pride—literally. Speaking of pride, while we celebrate this momentous event in Philippine history in the hopes of instilling the value and worth of what our forefathers have fought to achieve, we are also here to inspire the younger generation to continue improving the lives of our nation in whatever field or industry we can contribute to. Congratulations, MEGA, for another stellar list of New PH Awardees this 2018—they were nothing short of exceptional. By giving recognition to millennials making a difference in our current state,…

and she’s back

No, Maine Mendoza didn’t necessarily go anywhere. In fact, she has been as consistently present and phenomenal as ever before. What we’re talking about is her much-awaited return to the pages of the magazine, especially since her last turn was under the Moroccan sun some two years ago. Well, as they always say, time favors the workings of destiny and its magical pace. A little wait and threshing of logistical details, we have come to this point—a celebration of a return, as well as chalking in another year in the industry she was thrust in years back. Today, Maine Mendoza is sprightly and self-assured, confidently hitting her stride in everything laid out for her the day—we are talking about video shoots, one-on-one interviews and of course, the photo shoot with Mark…

Luxury can be a divisive word. Traditionally, it’s about owning things that aren’t technically a necessity, but in the changing times, luxury has shifted our sights from acquiring possessions to acquiring experiences, specifically in our current generation. More and more, we begin to realize that luxury has a much simpler meaning, focusing on the personal quality of life rather than its tangible counterparts. Although to some, it may speak volumes of privilege and unattainability, one that only a few can achieve but at the same time, what’s wrong with that? This month, MEGA flips both sides of the coin with life’s luxuries as we explore pre-fall’s hottest trends from gilded confections, gathered fabrics, to shapeless yet elegant dresses in Best Buys. We shine a light on Rosenthal Tee’s ethereal and divine…
