YES!, the monthly glossy that calls itself “The Number One Entertainment Magazine” has changed the landscape of showbiz journalism in the country. Beyond “tsismis” and blind items, it has elevated entertainment reportage into something serious and respectable. Its deep analysis on issues and its habit of presenting not just both, but ALL sides, made YES! the go-to literature for the showbiz-crazed Pinoys.
Another thing that YES did is that it started the trend of showbiz magazines cutting across all socio-economic classes. No longer is an entertainment magazine just something you pick up at the parlor while waiting for your turn or a palengke staple that will eventually become tinapa wrappers. You will see YES! today even in high-end Makati offices and even in cars of executives.
For it’s October 2011 issue, YES! worked with returning superstar Nora Aunor on the cover and the result is nothing less than amazing.
Shot by photographer Mark Nicdao, Nora Aunor goes classic and enigmatic in her cover photograph for the magazine. This cover will turn out to be one of her iconic covers of all time, and one of the publication’s finest moments.
