'Cause it's her birthday!

We still remember when we first shot Maine Mendoza for her "imagined" couple cover with Alden Richards. She was shy, kind of nervous, and didn't talk much. A year later, she's no longer timid; she's relaxed and even throwing jokes here and there. From simply being daytime TV's favorite funny girl, Maine has become a local showbiz It girl who's unafraid of being "real." That, and a travel OOTD peg (the girl's got style, what can we say).

Way before that Tamang Panahon special on GMA's Eat Bulaga (where Maine and Alden finally got to interact face-to-face), this Preview cover of the love team broke Twitter records. People actually thought we shot them physically together for our cover story, but we have to thank our post-production team's photoshopping skills for that.

We also included a solo cover for Maine in the e-mag.

And who could forget these outtakes from the shoot that made it to the evening news the week we released our cover? Our Art Director Eugene David a.k.a. "Alding" and Editorial Asisstant Yanna Lopez a.k.a. "YannaDub" were the stand-ins for Maine and Alden. But our favorite outtake? This shot our Creative Director Vince Uy posted on his Instagram:
