From her early days as a wide-eyed aspirant to her whirlwind romance with national fame, and now in her continuing reign as entertainment and pop culture royalty, there remains to be an incontestable fact that Nadine Lustre is an indomitable force and she is showing no signs of slowing down. An award-winning actress, a musician, a sold-out concert performer, creative visionary and entrepreneur, fashion icon, and even a fan-anointed figure head, while cognizant to the attendant boon, curse, and responsibility of her ascent to the pantheon of entertainment greats, editor Leo Balante writes, heavy is the head that wears the crown, but Nadine Lustre has declared herself completely free from edicts on her person other than hers, and has mastered—no, lived and breathed—the art of being Nadine Lustre.

For The Mastermind Issue, on its second year, Rank Magazine celebrates the breakthrough of young and thriving new and established creatives who continue to forge an indomitable path to excellence in the art and business of creativity. Ina Martelino, Jolianne Salvado, Lee Caces, Ady Cotoco, Karlo Carranza, and Kim Cruz, may hail from different walks of life, discipline, and artistic expression, but they share the same passion for creation—each one carefully leaving an unmistakeable mark and all of them seamlessly wearing multiple creative hats, excelling and thriving, enough to call themselves masters in their own right.

For what it is and what it represents, “Mula sa Buwan” , in all its splendor and jaw-dropping glory, transcends its very description of a “story of love and defiance”. It is not merely a story of love and loss, but a deep well of narratives that question ‘what is’ and shows us ‘what could be’ if all the man-made and socially constructed concepts on which the edifices of judgment and othering are built do not exist. In all its grandiosity and surrounding fan-clamor, “Mula sa Buwan” goes beyond a celebration of the return of theater. It is a declaration and a reminder of the strength and power of the human spirit.

His trajectory from fitness instructor, commercial model, marketing professional, and even a podcast creator who talks eloquently of his views on a wide breadth of interests from great reads, climate change, down to how the weather could affect our mood and our cognition, is one that is marked not by chance but by smarts, passion, and a heart to create meaningful dialogues. All these said, Enzo Amor is next.

The New Order Issue

From her early days as a wide-eyed aspirant to her whirlwind romance with national fame, and now in her continuing reign as entertainment and pop culture royalty, there remains to be an incontestable fact that Nadine Lustre is an indomitable force and she is showing no signs of slowing down.

An award-winning actress, a musician, a sold-out concert performer, creative visionary and entrepreneur, fashion icon, and even a fan-anointed figure head, while cognizant to the attendant boon, curse, and responsibility of her ascent to the pantheon of entertainment greats, heavy is the head that wears the crown, but Nadine Lustre has mastered—no, lived and breathed—the art of being Nadine Lustre.

For The New Order Issue, in celebration of Rank Magazine’s fifth anniversary, we pore over the inner workings of no less than the “President” herself, as she reflects not just on her ever-evolving creative journey, but her preachings on freedom and a firm sense of self above all else—staring at dictates of what is expected of her as a celebrity, a woman, and a human being dead in the eye and saying "No!" An act reserved only for a queen.

Thank you for joining us in the past five years! Enjoy the read!
