GMA Artist Center launches profile magazine with their top stars

YDA HENARES of GMA Artist Center has partnered with Pref Media Group Pres.-CEO Rosemarie Basa for the special issue of Profiles Magazine featuring the stars of GMA Network. Available for P185 a copy, this will be launched officially at 6 tonight at the Rizal Ballroom of Makati Shangrila, with concept by Director Freddie Santos and production design by Bong Gacho. The mag has 150 pages filled with fotos of your fave Kapuso stars and will have no less than 9 different covers that include Lovi Poe, Iza Calzado, Rhian Ramos, Jackie Rice, Solenn Heussaff, Aljur Abrenica, Kris Bernal, Sarah Lahbati, Gwen Zamora, Bela Padilla, Tim Yap, Manny Pacquiao, Cesar Montano, the cast of Bubble Gang, Pepito Manaloto and Startalk, Steph Henares, Gino de la Pena and Jace Flores.

How about other top GMA stars like Richard Gutierrez, Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes? “Richard was taping ‘Survivor Philippines’ in an island,” said Ms. Henares. “Marian and Dingdong weren’t available for the shoot kaya hindi sila nakasama. We also wanted to include sana the people from GMA News but they’re also not available.”

How did her partnership with Ms. Basa start? “Actually, we’re neighbours. Our friendship started because we both love Bruges in Belgium, our favorite place.”

“The magazine aims to show the beauty and glamour of GMA stars and our guests in the launch will be leaders from various businesses who can get the GMA stars as their endorsers,” says Ms. Basa.

At the launch, GMA talents will do a fashion show wearing the gowns designed by Nono Palmos, Francis Libiran, Ito Curata and others. Frencheska Farr, Julie Ann San Jose and La Diva will provide song numbers.
