AO EXCLUSIVE: FINALLY, WE FOUND SOME PRIVATE TIME WITH OUR LONGTIME CRUSH CHESCA PAREDES!
BY JAKOB VILLANUEVA
PHOTOGRAPHY BY JERICO MONTEMAYOR
How long have we pursued social media honey Chesca Paredes? Longer than most people would have the patience to woo a girl. We're talking close to three years! Ever since AO went live in 2019, having an exclusive cover shoot with Chesca had been high on our list. We had stalked her on the different social platforms and knew that she was cover girl material. Her eyes say it all. We mean, Chesca was one of those women on social media who demanded premium attention, but something about her eyes told us there was more depth into her. In all our years of pursuing beautiful women for shoots (the people behind AO had been longtime FHM editors, ICYMI), we've developed a keen sense for these things—Chesca just had it. So we continued to pursue with not much success. And then it turns out one of the photographers we regularly work with, the guy who did this shoot, is a longtime friend of Chesca's. Photog comes to us one day and says, 'hey I have these set of photos, do you want them?' And it's Chesca! Damn, man, you've been our regular lens guy and you've been keeping Chesca a secret?! Good thing we're fixing this with this Chesca special!
