For Rogue magazine’s October issue, the most ambitious undertaking in the magazine’s four years, there was no other woman for the job but Anne Curtis, leading lady and “Princess of All Media.”
The magazine, together with Jewelmer and L’Oreal Paris Philippines, pulled out all the stops and brought the Rogue production to Paris fittingly, perhaps, after Anne’s last Rogue shoot, July 2008’s now-classic first anniversary cover.
The city of lights was the perfect backdrop for the guerilla shoot. “It happened to be Fashion’s Night Out,” says Mark, “and ang daming nagpapa-picture kay Anne. Even there, she was a star.”
“It’s the biggest thing we’ve ever done, the most layouts, the most covers and with the biggest star,” says Miguel Mari, Rogue’s creative director.
The resulting 35 pages the longest the magazine has ever dedicated to a cover girl stand as an achievement in local publishing, a top-tier team working at full potential. And of course, it was Anne. “Every pose she made, she just nailed it,” says Miguel. “She just fit the vibe we wanted in Paris. She was so carefree, super confident. She’s not shy. She has a European sensibility about her.”
