Last August, the phenomenal loveteam of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza a.k.a. AlDub left for the North African country of  Morocco for the cover shoot of premiere fashion magazine Mega (READ HERE). Other loveteams with special photoshoots are JaDine (James Reid and Nadine Lustre) and KathNiel (Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla) in Greece and Iceland, respectively.  After a few teasers released days ago, the official covers were finally unveiled yesterday.

Presenting the most-awaited MEGA cover of Maine Mendoza @mainedcm specially chosen for the digital issue. A veil of the warmest gold blankets over the sweeping landscapes of a mysterious Morocco, where the sun slowly reaching its peak casts almost poetic shadows that precisely punctures through the busy locale. Emerging from the shadows is a woman of equal allure and tentative grace, slowly inching towards where the light cracked the brightest. Amidst the beautiful chaos of Casablanca and Marrakesh, we follow the bright-eyed Maine Mendoza, where the woman behind the beloved TV character is revealed—real, raw and refreshing.

Our MEGA Man Alden Richards @aldenrichards02 takes charge on the print and digital cover of our October issue. One year after the noontime phenomenon shattered the comfortable status quo of television, breaking the internet and soaring to unprecedented new heights, we find ourselves face-to-face with Alden Richards once more. In an adventure set 12,524 kilometers away from Philippine soil, we trudge through the busy and beaten terracotta paths of Casablanca and Marrakesh with the wide-eyed marvel, slowly discovering the wonders behind the mystique of Morocco, a parallel to figuring out why he was destined for this sort of greatness—even before he could personally believe it. Tucked in between the pages of this month’s issue are stories that will take your retro-vintage sensibilities to a sepia-toned middle of nowhere, a modem punk re-imagination of Singin’ In The Rain with Converse, as well as an exclusive with fashion’s golden boy, Lucky Blue Smith. Digital copies of MEGA Man will be available via Magzter starting October 5, 2016. Find your print copy with MEGA in National Bookstore and CV Magazine Landmark starting October 8, 2016. #MEGAMan #MEGAManMagazine #MEGANationMoroccowithAldub #AldenRichards Photographed by Mark Nicdao Creative Direction by Suki Salvador Make-up by Juan Sarte Hair by Celeste Tuviera Styled by Angelo Ramirez de Cartagena Photography Assistant Villie James
