Anything AlDub touches turns to gold. Or put Alden Richards or Maine Mendoza on the cover and expect it to be sold out. With AlDub as Philippine TV’s current It Couple, it was inevitable that Preview put them on the cover.
But since the splitscreen actors couldn’t be photographed together or be at the same place at the same time, Preview had to orchestrated choreography and photoshopping skills to make the cover happen.
First they had to get two of the busiest stars in town to commit, which took a month and a half before a final date was pinned down.
Next, Preview’s Creative Director Vince Uy had to arrange for pieces from Gucci’s Cruise 2016 collection to be flown in.
The photoshoot finally happened at Sulo Hotel in Quezon City with Editorial Assistant Yanna Lopez standing in for Maine while photographing Alden.
Associate Director Eugene David stood in for Alden Richards during Maine’s turn.
“Producing this cover shoot was both challenging and exciting at the same time,” said Isha Valles, Executive Editor of Preview magazine. “The energy was palpable and we all came out with greater admiration for Maine and Alden.”
