It’s not only Jinkee Pacquiao who’s getting attention because of a magazine cover. Charice Pempengco is also getting noticed because of her photo on the cover of Preview Magazine’s January-February 2012 issue.
Netizens are a critical lot. When the cover of the latest Preview issue appeared online, a lot of Filipinos were surprised at how she looked on the cover, and most were in disbelief at how Charice managed to look, well, “slimmer” on the cover. Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter were flooded with comments about the Preview cover. Some say the photo was manipulated on Photoshop to make her face look thinner, but the “behind the scenes” video also showed her with a noticeably thinner face, so it could be argued that her make-up made the difference, or the fact that her hair covers parts of her face made her face appear thinner. Whatever the truth is, only the people behind Preview can really say if the cover is manipulated or not.
