Metro.Style website, under the Metro Group, once again brought together the most exciting duo today via a cover. Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano (aka DonBelle) make the coolest onscreen couple in their hot, trending, and record-breaking teen rom-com series “He’s Into Her” that’s consistently been the most viewed series on iWantTFC.
For the cover, they were given the chic preppy style treatment by the Metro team, referencing some of the most popular school-inspired fashion dramas and movies like Gossip Girl, Clueless, and Riverdale. It also featured top international fashion brands and local designers.
“DonBelle, as one of the most exciting tandems today, express the best of their generation—they’re talented, intelligent, hardworking, and undeniably beautiful,” says Metro.Style editor-in-chief Geolette Esguerra. “We have high hopes for this pair, so you can definitely see more of them in Metro.Style in the coming weeks.”
In this exclusive cover feature, they shared refreshing takes on their characters, and expressed their thoughts about being labeled as the next big loveteam. It’s impossible to pigeonhole what any one person can take away from the series. But if you ask Donny and Belle, or maybe even their characters Deib and Max, it’s really just about one thing: love.
“I love what Direk Chad [Vidanes] said. Love doesn’t choose. It doesn’t choose a specific age, a specific person. It happens to everyone, which is why a lot of people, even if you’re not in high school like in ‘He’s Into Her,’ [enjoy the show],” said Donny.
Donny and Belle, the rest of the cast, and the series’ showrunners have pretty much been in awe of the outpouring support from fans—including those who first read the novel before watching the show. “There was pressure at first. Syempre, kailangan naming maabot ‘yung expectations nila, and knowing that the series is somehow a bit far from the book, may pressure. I’m glad and I’m really thankful that everyone liked it. I’m really blessed to be a part of this project,” Belle shared.
This cover was photographed by Ria Regino. The glam team was composed of Ryan Pareno, Carell Garcia, and John Lozano. The Metro team behind the shoot includes editor-in-chief Geolette Esguerra, fashion editor Randz Manucom, fashion assistant Carla Buyo, editorial assistant Cara Tirona, and People section editor Grace Libero-Cruz.
