We had all the elements of the perfect cover for our summer issue: the most beautiful setting, Boracay; the most luxurious resort, Discover Shores; the perfect weather, bright and sunny; colorful, stylish, and super sexy swimsuits; and a super hot, gloriously tanned and toned cover girl, Lovi Poe. We really couldn't ask for more.
"For our March cover, we need to choose someone who's perfect under the sun. Lovi has a gorgeous body, super fun, super playful, but also ultimately sexy," says Cosmo Editor-in-Chief Zo Aguila. "And, we recognize that she's one of the blooming artists now in the industry."
As always, Cosmo shot the cover on a picturesque summer location. "We chose to shoot here in Boracay because it has that feel-good vibe that everyone is looking forward to in summer. We wanted to bring Lovi here so she could let loose, have fun in the water, enjoy the sun for a while, and so she could encourage our girls to just take a breather this summer," says Zo. Cosmo brings you to Boracay, even just through the pages of Cosmo and through the gallery you are about to click through.
The Cosmo team put in a lot of work and sleepless hours to put together this month's cover shoot. But, it did not feel like work at all, what with the glorious weather and heavenly setting; everyone was just in a light mood. Who could ever get stressed in Boracay?
"Enjoy i-shoot si Lovi," says photographer Pat Dy. "She's very confident with her body, with herself. She's very good with her poses, despite the difficult lighting, shifting from cloudy to sunny. She was able to work with the sun and the wind, sinasabayan niya."
