MANILA - Four of ABS-CBN's sought-after leading ladies were launched on Thursday as the cover girls of MEGA magazine's September 2014 issue, which features them posing in scenic South Africa.

Kathryn Bernardo, Maja Salvador, Erich Gonzales, and Julia Barretto -- all homegrown talents of Star Magic -- were photographed by Mark Nicdao at the Mattanu Private Game Reserve in Northern Cape in July.

Suki Salvador did creative direction, with styling by Patrick Galang and hair and makeup by Jing Monis and Robbie Pinera, respectively.

On Instagram, Nicdao and the four cover girls shared a preview of their photos inside MEGA's "Big Fashion Issue." Here's a look:
