This an­niver­sary is­sue might be a tad dif­fer­ent from what you’ve come to ex­pect ev­ery June. This year, we’ve de­cided to cel­e­brate the other F word we’ve come to love as much as fash­ion: food. It hasn’t es­caped our con­scious­ness that fash­ion and food have be­come Bffs—like many other style-lov­ing folks, our feeds are filled with as many flat lays of what’s on our plates ATM as there are OOTDS. With the coun­try’s din­ing scene flour­ish­ing and cur­rent silhouettes seem­ingly de­signed to ac­com­mo­date and con­ceal a post-meal bulge, there’s no rea­son not to go forth and ex­plore.

So ex­plore we did and what we found was the same sat­is­fac­tion you get af­ter a great meal: joy-in­duc­ing snacks as the in­spi­ra­tion for wear­able makeup looks, mak­ing a mad dash in the cur­rent sports­wear trend with arm­fuls of our fa­vorite fast food, and words of wis­dom from tal­ented food pho­tog­ra­phers who all agree that while we all eat with our eyes nowa­days, fla­vor trumps all.

You also might be won­der­ing about the con­nec­tion be­tween the women in our cover fea­ture. The an­swer is a sim­ple one: Th­ese are women we think of when the words food and fash­ion come to mind, and they have all been Pre­view cover girls, too. Bianca Araneta-elizalde’s restau­rant con­cept, The Whole­some Ta­ble, has be­come a go-to for healthy and de­lec­ta­ble eats. Iza Calzado, who loves to eat but has al­ways been open about try­ing dif­fer­ent diet plans to main­tain her weight, also hap­pens to have the most di­rect ac­cess to Booky (that ex­tra-handy din­ing app); the founder is her beau, Ben Win­tle. If there is any­one who makes it a point to be in the know and try the lat­est in food, it’s Is­abelle Daza, and we’d love a copy of her global din­ing list. Regine Velasquez, who is also cel­e­brat­ing her 30th an­niver­sary in lo­cal show busi­ness this year, doesn’t just have a cook­ing show, she also re­leased a cook­book last year. The youngest of the group, who also graces our cover for the first time, is bright-eyed and beau­ti­ful Ylona Gar­cia, who, at the age of 15, has al­ready be­gun a promising ca­reer as an ac­tress, singer and, yes, en­dorser of food brands. We at Pre­view are big fans of her vi­brant per­son­al­ity, and we’re cer­tain she’ll go places.

Food and fash­ion truly go well to­gether, and what bet­ter way to cel­e­brate our 22nd year than with a feast? Cheers!
