Dominique Cojuangco’s debut as a Preview girl was a parade of wonderful firsts. The then-19-year-old graced her first Preview cover in September 2014, photographed by no less than BJ Pascual, as the It girl of the moment wearing Nicolas Ghesquière’s debut collection at Louis Vuitton. And like a true fashion girl, it was one of the things about the shoot that she said she could never forget. “It was such an honor,” she gushed.
“It was my first time ever working with the Preview team and [I] absolutely fell in love with them! Everyone was so warm!”
Aside from that, the shoot had been extra exciting for her because her mom Gretchen Barretto was also a September cover girl from way back. “She was actually on a Preview cover in Louis Vuitton, too! My mum was very supportive [when my cover came out]! She loved how everything turned full circle.” And since the shoot, her interests have crossed over to beauty, as well. She reveals that her willingness to experiment with makeup and hair skyrocketed after being glammed up Preview-style: “[The shoot] made me more open to doing so now for events or nights out,” she says.
