PEP's take on Angel's Cosmo pictorial:
Despite being one of the biggest names in the industry today, Angel was surprisingly shy at the Cosmo cover shoot, getting quite jittery over the sexy summer shoot and clowning around with the Cosmo team just to loosen up. The jitters don't show in Angel's confident pose, as she says, "Lahat naman tayong mga babae, may body issues, di ba? But you should be happy with your body and comfortable in your own skin."
For Angel, being comfortable in your own skin shows in the way you carry yourself. She encourages Cosmo girls everywhere to make an effort to always look presentable and even dare to be kikay.
"Iba rin yung feeling ‘pag nakaayos kapag lalabas ka't alam mong okay ang itsura mo, ready kang harapin kahit sino." Angel points out, "It's great to be in jeans and T-shirt, but it's also great to be in a dress."
Angel continues to strive towards becoming a better version of herself by branching out of her comfort zone. Since 2007, she has taken time off to study fashion in London, become a first-time producer with the movie Angels, and is now learning how to play the guitar. "You have to keep on learning," she says, "You shouldn't get complacent." Clearly, Angel has become a woman of substance.
Here are Angel Locsin's previous covers for Cosmo:
Aside from her role in ABS-CBN primetime series "Lobo", Angel has also put up a ladies' sportswear line called "Angel Active" which was launched last November 2007. It was reportedly a huge success; the clothing line is set to be distributed in selected SM Shoemart outlets. Angel herself actively participates in conceptualizing designs for the clothing line.
