As the year comes to an end, Zee Lifestyle is also set to culminate its 20th anniversary celebrations with the glitziest event of the season, the Emerald Ball, complemented with an Anniversary Issue featuring the magazine’s biggest cover ever.
Over the years, the Queen City’s most remarkable men and women of substance have graced the cover of Cebu’s premier lifestyle bible. From cultural icon Maia Franco on the maiden issue all the way to the talented Matteo Guidicelli for this year’s Fashion Issue (and his fourth cover at that!), Zee Lifestyle has accumulated quite the diverse roster of personalities in its two decade run.
This month, Zee Lifestyle brings back twelve of the most memorable faces on the cover.
We catch up with hoteliers Alice Woolbright and June Alegrado, restauranteur Carla Yeung-McKowen, social media influencers Kryz Uy and Kymberly Maitland-Smith, politicians Christina Garcia Frasco and Margot Osmeña, real estate developer Fiona King, fashion designer Mia Arcenas, entrepreneurs Marguerite Lhuillier and Danessa Onglatco, and philanthropist Amparito Lhuillier, and see how far they’ve come since being on the cover of Zee Lifestyle.
The inside pages also have the ladies decked head to toe in Miranda Konstantinidou. In preparation for her first ever fashion show in Cebu at the Emerald Ball, the Greek-German designer talks about her Cebu-manufactured pieces and how the city has become her home.
Alongside Miranda, Zee Lifestyle pays tribute to Kenneth Cobonpue, Philip Rodriguez, Cary Santiago, Arcy Gayatin, Vito Selma, Jun Escario, Monique Lhuillier and Lyndon Neri—eight Cebuano designers who have made a mark and become the most respected names in their respective industries in the past twenty years.
Additionally, girls-of-the-moment Stephanie Sharpe, Krishtal Freeland, Yasmine Sarlak and Alyssa Sacal and Cebu’s most promising talents Christina Linaban, Jarra Angbetic, Jonas Pacifico, and Chai Fonacier, Ted Paraiso, Maria Gigante and Samantha Solidum of Sutukil Sauce talk about being the city’s new breed, and why everyone should watch out for them.
