One of the most important yet overlooked prerequisites to having an awesome photo shoot is to have the proper ambience and of course at FHM, we always make it our number one priority to keep our cover girls in the zone at all times. Thankfully, it doesn’t take much for an experienced, iconic, and natural model like Ina Raymundo to work the camera. With neon lights shining on her flawless skin and our impromptu hiphop playlist on spotify keeping her godly, child-bearing hips swaying we were positive that Ina could usher FHM into the whole new era we were planning on taking it.
Time and time again, Ina has proven that she is one of the timeless treasures in media and showbusiness. Just recently, Ina graced our primetime airwaves with a remake of her Sabado Nights commercial that aired more than 22 years ago, which was probably one of the main reasons why we were hit by the stroke of genius and invited her to do another cover with us. With Ina, we are confident in celebrating FHM’s 200th issue because she's growing strong and shows no sign of stopping.
Ina’s timelessness is what made us want to take a risk and show her in (literally) a whole new light this time around. Everyone already knows who Ina Raymundo is, so we wanted to show you a side of her that you’ve probably never seen before. We wanted to cater to our seasoned fans’ fantasies, but to also to introduce her to our newer audience. After all, anyone could mistake her for a 20-something hottie simply having the time of her life.
Watching Ina in her element in front of the camera is always such a sight to behold. There is just something about her that can’t be learned or picked-up even through years of practice and experience. Ina has this innate sensuality in her that just makes her so desirable. “People notice my sensuality in the way I move or in the way I flip my hair, even when I’m not totally conscious of it. It’s definitely not a weakness. That is a kind of power. I’ve never been in denial of it. But remember that you always have to use it wisely. Don’t abuse it, but don’t ignore or feel ashamed about it either. You can have that power and no one even needs to know that you’re in possession of it,” says Ina. And we couldn’t agree more.
We’re sure that you want to see more of Ina so make sure to grab a copy of our special 200th anniversary issue where we show you all the cool stuff that’s in store in the #hyperfuture. Find out what happened to that big ol’ Nuclear Power Plant in Bataan and find out why we still haven’t gone radioactive; read about the genius Pinoys working in Silicon Valley and how they’re changing the game of computer programming while living it up, and figure out if it’s possible for 2D girls to actually be better than real ones as we interview a real people in the otaku scene; all that in more in in our March issue of FHM.
