It's a great coincidence that that first issue of Preview that I ever bought, June 2005 (featuring "Television's Brightest Young Stars' with Anne Curtis, Bea Alonzo, Iza Calzado back when they were starting out), would be the same as my first for the magazine!!! This time with the new batch of young stars and one of them is Anne's younger sister, Jasmine Curtis-Smith. To top it off they were wearing one of my favorite Louis Vuitton collections, flown in for the shoot. I was very emotional (I know, gross haha, but seriously I really was) when I found out I was doing this. I really couldn't believe it. To me, it's like coming full circle. Mayganon??

The cover was NOT originally a double cover, it was supposed to be one continuous gatefold cover, but at the last minute, they had to shuffle the blocking cause there was a miscommunication with the Advertising Department (they thought it was a double cover so they sold two ads). In fact, the gatefold cover was already laid-out with cover blurbs and all, ready for printing, before they found out about the Advertising Department-miscommunication. I have a copy of the original one, and I would really really LOVE to post it, but I can't (yes, I tried asking permission for this blog), so we have to respect the corporate rules :)
