Metro.Style recently collaborated with Star Magic in welcoming the newly-signed artists of the country’s premier talent management. 


Star Magic held its “Black Pen Day” last June 19 wherein over 40 talented artists ranging from actors, singers, musicians, dancers, and hosts were launched as Kapamilyas. Metro.Style joined this historic event by mounting a fashion editorial and launching a six-part campaign featuring these stars. 


This partnership couldn’t have been more fitting. With this milestone, Star Magic and ABS-CBN entertainment production head Laurenti Dyogi announced their dream “to grow bigger and go global,” as they will strive to bring their artists opportunities to perform alongside the best in the world. Metro.Style, on the other hand, is the fastest-growing lifestyle website in the country that’s also been gaining global reach.


Together, the two brands amplified the “Black Pen Day” event with this fairy tale-like, storybook-themed photo shoot that symbolizes a new chapter not just in these artists’ careers but their lives as well.  


Featured in the Part 1 of the Metro.Style x Star Magic Black Pen Day campaign are new artists Maureen Wrob, Vance Larena, Rans Rifol, Luis Vera-Perez, Arabella Davao, and Vitto Neri. 


Part 2 featured young stars Zabel Lamberth, Paolo Gumabao, Kaila Estrada, Migo Manikan, Sela, and Jake Ejercito. 


For Part 3, we trained the spotlight on both established and rising actors and singers like Angeline Quinto, Gian Magdangal, Alyssa Muhlach, Moira Lacambra, Poppert Bernadas, and Sandino Martin.  


Part 4 was all about music and artistry with Sab, Recio, Sheena Belarmino, JM Yosures, Matty Juniosa, Enzo Almario, Lucas Garcia, and Janine Berdin. 


Rise Artists Studio’s Jayda, Zach Castañeda, Gigi de Lana, Shanaia Gomez, and JC Alcantara took over Part 5


Lastly, Pinoy Big Brother alums and Star Hunt’s Richard Juan, Kiara Takahashi, Tan Roncal, Ashley del Mundo, and Lou Yanong impressed with their visuals in Part 6.

The team that executed the concept were photographer Ria Regino; creative director Chookie Cruz; production designer Aren Santos of AdSet Prod; fashion stylist Aldrin Ramos and his associates Katrina Pascual and Corina Teodoro, and shoot coordinator Cara Tirona.
