Internationally Acclaimed Singer-Actress Karylle on the Cover of METRO

ABS-CBN publishing's flagship title Metro Magazine has been praised
for its quest for consistently empowering women achievers with their
stellar list of cover stars from actresses like Bea Alonzo, Kim Chiu,
Anne Curtis, Maja Salvador, Shaina Magdayao, supermom Mikee
Cojuangco-Jaworski, politicians such as Lucy Torres-Gomez, and
industry stalwarts such as Piolo Pascual and Judy Anne Santos.

This month is no different, as Metro shines the spotlight on Karylle
Tatlonghari in her first cover for the magazine—as the headliner for
the beauty issue to boot. Fresh from her nomination at the 52nd
Festival de Television de Monte Carlo for her role in The Kitchen

entertainment arena.

"A closer look at Karylle Tatlonghari will reveal a unique beauty that
shines through genuine smiles and a down-to-earth attitude," says
editor-in-chief Michealle Torres in her note. Clad in couture from the
country's hottest designers, Karylle shows everyone how
transformations do not necessarily mean an extreme change—it's all
abut highlighting your best features and possessing a glow that comes
from being at peace with who you are.

The big beauty issue comes with the much-awaited Beauty Awards, where
Metro lends its expertise in selecting the best treatments, services,
makeup, skincare, and fragrance finds to satisfy your beauty fix the
whole year through. Found in the issue are also makeup tips from
models-turned-makeup artists such as Bianca Valerio and Nina Ricci
Alagao; as well as the beauty secrets of Ms. World 2011 First Princess
Gwendoline Ruais.

This month's fashion pages is also filled with matador-inspired
trends, the paisley pattern that brings a touch of the retro and the
exotic, and Balmain's toned-down approach to ornamental dressing via
well-edited appropriations of ornamental influences. The store on Ezra
Santos sets the tone for the dramatic Metrowear Rocks the Runway
behind-the-scenes feature, a fashion show where twenty of the
country's most sought-after designers and rockstars Wolfgang,
Callalily, Kwjan, and Rico Blanco, who all came together for a good

Finally, Metro also charts the lives of several individuals in their
journey to being beautiful—including model Pauline Prieto, actor
Albert Martinez, society figure Tessa Prieto-Valdes, beauty guru Vicky
Belo, and many more. Inside are also exclusive behind-the-scenes
materials from the Rock of Ages musical starring Mig Ayesa.
