This is the three-fold cover of the September 2007 issue of Preview, a fashion magazine based in the Philippines. The cover features thirteen of the Philippines’ top models in nude and posing along with nothing but Louis Vuitton trunks and bags. It’s a very timeless cover; without the benefit of clothes to put it in a clear period context, I can imagine someone 40 years from now having a hard time deciding if this was shot in 1907, 1957, or 2007. In my list of favorite magazine covers, this one’s made it into my top 5, hands down!
Models clockwise: Joey Mead, Wilma Doesnt, Rissa Samson, Ornussa Cadness, and Phoemela Barranda
Annette Coronel, Val de los Santos, Grace Tagle, and Raya Mananquil
Sanya Smith, Isabel Roces, Ana Sideco, and Bianca Valerio
I’m seeing some Fall 2007 bags; Suhali Le Fabuleux and Olympe Nimbus. I hope US Vogue will do something like this, I really hate seeing actresses in their cover. Whatcha think?!
