As one of this generation’s best actresses, she can rock any role she puts her mind to
Why does it seem like Glaiza de Castro has effortlessly deviated from the pervading stereotypes of show business?
The 30-year-old artist—notice how we didn’t use the labels “actress” or “singer” exclusively in describing her—has left an indelible mark in every entertainment pursuit she’s chosen, whether on screen (The Rich Man’s Daughter) or on the radio (“Sa ’Yo Pa Rin”). And recently, the projects she’s kept herself busy with (Contessa, Liway) have aligned with the decision to do things her own way, which in turn has allowed one of this generation’s most unique leading ladies to enjoy artistically fooling around with the performances she’s been handed.

Glaiza De Castro Is No Ordinary Leading Lady
Photography Xander Angeles of Edge of Light Studios
On a green leather sofa, Cara Delevingne lies down on her stomach, a portrait of repose with her head propped against the armrest and her eyes clear and unflinching. And, oh yeah, she’s also completely buck naked.
The supermodel (turned actress, turned mental health and LGBTQ+ rights advocate, turned singer) bared it all for the cover of Marie Claire’s September issue. The stunning photo reveals a laid-back and, yes, very nude Delevingne. This vulnerable and exposed image of her seems to go hand in hand with the various vulnerabilities she herself exposed in her interview.
Is there anything the actress, model, singer, author, activist, and daredevil—a star of this month’s Amazon fantasy series Carnival Row—can’t do?

Florin Ion Firimitã is a visual artist, educator, and writer who traces his interest in art back to his mother’s passion for drawing and his father’s modest amateur photo lab, in Bucharest, Romania, where he was entrusted with mixing chemicals, developing film and printing black-and-white photos at the age of six. Versatile in a variety of mediums, from painting to mixed media and from writing to photography, the artist has continued to explore a wide range of creative expressions.
She’s a lovable, down-to-earth, hot Aussie country girl, she’s sporty, she can easily beat you in a thumb war and she’s the 2019 MAXIM Cover Girl winner. Yes, the gorgeous OLIVIA CANEVA is definitely one to watch…
“It’s a dream come true! To be given the opportunity to grace the MAXIM cover is a big, pinch-yourself moment, so basically it feels like I’ve won the lottery. I’m so incredibly grateful and honoured — it was such a fun photo shoot, thank you so much MAXIM legends!”
