This month presents a double cover, featuring Kapamilya heartthrob Xian Lim, who shows off his brand new home to StarStudio, and new parents Richard Gutierrez and Sarah Lahbati with their son Zion.
Set on a 3,000-square meter property in the hills of Antipolo, Xian’s new home is a dream come true for him and his family. In the 24-page feature, Xian takes StarStudio on a tour of the house, which was documented in full-color exclusive photographs. Xian shares with StarStudio his inspiring life story, and the journey that took him from chubby teen to box-office star. Five of the people closest to Xian, including mom Mary Anne and onscreen partner Kim Chiu, get the chance to ask Xian questions that reveal things about him that people never knew before.
The other special treat in StarStudio’s August issue is a feature on Richard Gutierrez, Sarah Lahbati, and their son Zion. The young couple shares their emotional journey to parenthood—the fears, pains, and challenges they faced—and their decision not to reveal Zion’s birth for a whole year until their big announcement. In telling their story, Richard and Sarah also address the future they face with Zion, and their dreams and plans for their son.
Other significant features include a 20th anniversary special on Star Cinema, as told by the people who saw it grow from a small company to a cinema powerhouse.
Actress Sunshine Cruz also gives StarStudio access to her new home and her own story of starting over with her daughters Isabelle, Samantha, and Francheska.
