Hola Philippines: First Issue with Anne and Jasmine Curtis-Smith
HOLA! Philippines, the country’s newest luxury lifestyle magazine, is all set to conquer the local readership with its uniquely glamorous take on entertainment, Philippine Fashion and high society as it launches its first-ever issue this month.
Gracing the cover of HOLA! Philippines’ September 2013 issue are none other than gorgeous celebrity sisters Anne and Jasmine Curtis-Smith. In an exclusive, glamorous 10-page spread, Anne proudly talks about how her little sister is all grown up and coming into her own as a promising actress, while Jasmine reveals how she’s determined to exhibit the same drive and ambition as she follows the footsteps of her superstar sister.
HOLA!’s global appeal is rooted in one thing: “Our unique and simple proposition, which is that life is beautiful and that everyone should be celebrating this,” says Manzano. Lighthearted and wholesome, its people-centered style of reportage is both heartwarming and humorous, with just the right dose of trivia to tickle the reader’s fancy. “It’s a magazine about the celebration of life,” explains Ugarte, “where accomplished and successful people, who are both celebrated and know how to celebrate, invite us into their personal lives by telling us their stories, letting us into their homes, introducing us to their loved ones, and showing us how they enjoy their lives by allowing us to tag along on their holiday vacations, events, and parties.” At the same time, it’s a luxury magazine that has everything today’s stylish urban consumers would want to have and experience–from the latest fashion trends and designer accessories, to upscale dining, exclusive events and exotic travel destinations.
