I’m proud to say that I’ve spent a sizable amount of my publishing career working in a teen magazine.

It’s really quite a pleasure seeing them bloom right before my eyes and see them evolve into the best versions of themselves—inevitably making a mark in their chosen fields. In fact, this month’s cover personalities are testaments of what I’m talking about. Famous beauties and stylish sisters Georgina Wilson and Jess Wilson, alongside creative Martine Cajucom and model and socialite Bea Soriano-Dee had once upon a time graced the covers and pages of countless young adult glossies, making them the ultimate girls to…

Dear MEGA, Hype is a word we have come across a lot, especially as of late, and I’m glad that you went on ahead and tackled it along the lines of luxury, beauty and even perhaps sounding off on the naysayers of your cover star, Maine Mendoza. Clearly, beyond the hype that has led her to where she is now, I enjoyed learning more about her in your magazine. With so much more to say, she is such a rarity in the industry indeed. (Even her videos on your website was another revealing facet to her already quirky personality.) I guess what I’m trying to say is that as an observer, I’m glad she has remains true to herself without apology. The world needs more of that and thank you for…

It is in the very nature of most It-girls to come and go, giving way to a new generation. Before you know it, people will be buzzing about a new face who simply own the elusive title. It is only the most clever who understand that reinvention is the way to go. And it seems as if the women of Sunnies Studios have perfected this skill, leaving their own personal touch to everything they do. Introducing their much-awaited makeup line, Sunnies Face, to the public, sisters Georgina and Jess Wilson, Bea Soriano-Dee and Martine Cajucom have captivated their audiences once again.

Fire up a search on “Rihanna naked dress” and you’ll see countless results of the bad gal in nothing but that Swarovski-encrusted dress—a look that not only cemented her status as CFDA’s fashion Icon of the Year award in 2014, but also had tongues wagging incessantly.

Deep inside the pages of MEGA, we dissect pre-fall’s trends starting off with the comeback of animal prints, the refashioned pantsuit and…
