UNO June 2010 “The Anniversary Issue” SEVEN YEARS STRONG
UNO—one of the country’s longest-running men’s lifestyle magazines— celebrates its 7th Year as the premiere guide for the discerning male. Since re-launching last year with none other than RJ Ledesma at the helm, it’s become a showcase of the best writing, groundbreaking art/photography and, of course, the most beautiful women in the country. Blending high society with the lowbrow, every issue is a compendium of Filipino pop culture from political punditry to culture vultures, street style to designer pomp, mass-market celebrity to cult heroes.
Gracing the cover for our anniversary issue is none other than fashion icon Sarah Meier, who appears for the first time in a men’s magazine as nothing less than a superhero. (Styled under the visionary art direction of Norman Crisologo and distinctly photographed by renowned lensman Juan Caguicla.
The daughter of supermodel Elektrika, she talks to UNO editor-at-large/multi-Palanca award recipient Luis Katigbak on just how she manages to stay the course and keep on soaring in the fashion world (as well a few tips on just how to save the day).
For this special collector’s edition, we’ve also put galleries of the best art that was featured within our pages the past year and exclusively commissioned by UNO from the likes of rising stars like Brian Vallesteros, Lala Gallardo and Apol Sta. Maria to celebrated veterans like Arnold Arre and Gilbert Daroy.
Of course, we’ve also painstakingly chosen and collected the best shoots of all the women we’ve had the privileged to feature the past year, including many never-before seen portraits of our favorite muses such as Cindy Curleto, news anchor Gretchen Fullido, top models Bianca Valerio and Ornusa Cadness, internet celebrity Ellen Adarna, TV personality Maggie Wilson and fashion maven and lifestyle editor Celine Lopez to name a few. Also, we collect and reprint our best covers from the past seven years featuring the likes of Teresa Herrera, Nicole Hernandez, Maike Evers, Vivian Tan, Bianca Araneta and Pia Guanio.
We also have indie princess Saab Magalona sampling the veggie cuisine at Nomnomnom and “man of the moment” RAMON BAUTISTA explaining just what it takes to be the perfect human being.
