THE FILIPINA IS THE SEXIEST WOMAN ALIVE. Our August 2017 issue is dedicated to Women We Love—to all the women we’ve ever loved—and to whom we’ve written our last love letter. We celebrate classic Filipina beauty in five iconic women: Anne Curtis-Smith, Angel Aquino, Tweetie de Leon-Gonzalez, Agot Isidro, and Zsa Zsa Padilla.

Inside, get the measure of two vastly different paragons of political incorrectness: Perennially beleaguered Rappler CEO Maria Ressa speaks to us about citizen journalism, fending off the horde, the responsibilities of new media, and her unfazed optimism in the age of data and demagogues; and we spend 24 hours in the company of the inimitable Chavit Singson to take a rare peek behind his veil of notorious extravagance.

Plus: Get inside the mind of a dominatrix with a fetish for luxury labels; learn how (and where) to have your fortune told in Metro Manila; take a sip of the city’s coolest new coffee fixation; equip your young ones with children’s books about the realities of the Martial Law era; and get fitted in the season’s best designer suits. Also, in this month’s Notes & Essays: Exits, by Maritina Morell, Sarge Lacuesta, and Cirilo F. Bautista, with photos by Tim Serrano.
