We were all smiles.

When you put Patrick Starrr and Alex Gonzaga in a room together, expect a lot of laughter, beauty jokes, and over-the-top poses. Our cover shoot with these two internet video stars is one of our most iconic (FYI, they’ve actually never met prior to their Preview cover). Their chemistry was quick and undeniable, and they became friends right off the bat. Picture Patrick giving Alex some beauty vlogging tips here and there, and Alex happily sharing her local travel and shopping tips in exchange.

Below, see what else happened behind-the-scenes during our fun-filled shoot with Patrick and Alex.

Alex arrived first on the set. Makeup artist Don de Jesus and hairstylist Brent Sales worked on Alex’s beauty look right away. Patrick and his team arrived a few minutes later.

He’s never shy to pose in front of any mirror or camera.

We pulled out clothes from Marc Jacob’s fun Spring/Summer 2018 collection, plus some custom-made local designer pieces just for Patrick.

It takes an entire team to create an iconic cover.

The cover shoot process always starts with a rundown of all the looks. Here's Preview Fashion Director Daryl Chang and contributing editor Andre Chang curating the looks as they discuss the shoot flow and concept further with Creative Director Vince Uy and photographer BJ Pascual.

Aperitif also prepared a special cheese spread just for our shoot. Patrick and his team, as well as Alex, loved it so much we barely had any leftovers!

We kept Alex's makeup minimal and clean, just the way she does it every day.

Patrick and Alex’s chemistry was fun and easy. It was a breeze to shoot them both.

Trivia: We asked Patrick to apply makeup on Alex for one layout.

After a few selfies and a lot of group shots, we ended this milestone of a cover story for Preview print’s last issue!
