The first cover features Brazilian-Japanese model and actor Daniel Matsunaga. The ‘Brapanese’ hunk, Big Winner of Pinoy Big Brother All-in, retraces exclusively for StarStudio his journey from his native Brazil to the Philippines and why he now calls this country home.
In this special 18-page feature, Daniel talks about his childhood, his years of traveling the world as a model, the challenging times he faced and finally, how he came to the Philippines where he has now lived for the last five years. He also shares rare childhood photos of him and photos of his family and reveals interesting tidbits about him, such as the Filipino celebrity he most admires.
The flipside of this Double Cover Special is Anne Curtis, who is set to make her international film debut in Blood Ransom, an action-thriller helmed by Filipino-American director Francis dela Torre. StarStudio gives readers the exclusive first look into this new movie via behind-the-scenes photos, an interview with the director and a feature on Anne’s leading man, Alexander Dreymon of American Horror Story fame.
There’s also a special feature on The Voice kids Big Four—Lyca Gairanod, Darren Espanto, JK Labajo and Darlene Vibares—who talk about their individual journeys to success and about the voices that have inspired and guided them on the way there.
The October 2014 issue also includes a special report on the 8th Star Magic Ball, and how stars, stylists and designers created the show-stopping red carpet looks in “Ready for the Ball”.
Jane Oineza, Julia Barretto and Beauty Gonzalez also share their daytime to nighttime looks and valuable makeup tips that will turn you from simple to stunning.
