The 18-year-old actress is a natural!

To say that Gabbi Garcia loves to smile is an understatement. The 18-year-old actress and secret singer (watch out for our next surprise on this soon!) may have had only two hours of sleep when we shot her Preview cover at Solaire's Bay Villa, but she was all giggles and grins on set. She's got that infectious energy that had everyone into a cheery and energetic mood despite the heat of the sun. We wrapped up earlier than expected and even got to spend time with Gabbi, chatting over a plate of chicharon (she loves to eat and never gets fat), before she left our luxurious afternoon getaway.  

Here's what happened with the bubbly morena beauty at her first Preview cover shoot:

We had samples flown in from Loewe and all of Gabbi's sleek cutout black dresses were from local designers like Cary Santiago, Joel Escober and Jun Escario.

Hair stylist Ethan David preps Gabbi's hair for a sleek middle part with wavy ends.

Makeup artist Anthea Bueno does a subtle cat eye that suited Gabbi to a T!

We shot Gabbi's Loewe look first before heading out into the pool.

We are in love with Loewe's Calla Flower bracelet!

The layout that made it to the cover! We pulled out diamond rings from Jul B. Dizon and Royal Gem, and a sapphire necklace from Janina Dizon for this look!

Even under the grueling noontime heat, Gabbi still poses fearlessly for the cam.

While everybody took a break for lunch, hairstylist Ethan, Gabbi, Vince Uy (our Creative Director), and photographer BJ Pascual hit the pool for a quick dip!

We told you she loves to laugh!

This one-piece swimsuit from Seafolly fit her like a glove!

Gold hooped earrings at the pool? Why not!

She's also a master smizer, BTW!

Gabbi never fails to have fun in between takes.

We let Gabbi experience the pool again—but this time in a Cary Santiago dress!
