In the February issue, Esquire Philippines awards the coveted title of “Sexiest Woman Alive” to French-Filipina beauty, Solenn Heussaff (she's Cosmo's September 2012 cover girl!). Joining Esquire’s roster of beautiful women, Solenn fires up the year’s first issue with a nearly-nude photo shoot and behind-the-scenes footage boasting her effortlessly cool persona, and her game-for-anything attitude.
Where can you find world-class cuisine in the Philippines today? Esquire Food and Drinks Editor Erwan Heussaff scoured the country in search of the Best New Restaurants for 2013.
