May 2013 covers are all about beautiful faces and beauty queens hence the beauties and the queens. I am not an expert with this subject matter. In the first place, I do not proclaim that I am beautiful (as in hello look at Kristine Hermosa on the cover of Mega this month) only my mothers does My height does not even pass I think to be a beauty queen (Im just 5’4”).
If you are in a beauty pageant and asked : Define what is a beautiful woman. What will be your magic answer? Well I often hear that the formula is physical beauty + brains + personality. Holly cow, its so hard to possess those 3 all in one person.
If we talk about physical beauty, I believe that it is really in the eyes of the beholder. The way we perceived ourselves of course has an impact on our personality but more often than not our own perception to ourselves is wrong. Well it takes guts and glory to proclaim you are indeed physically beautiful but beauty has more meaning when it comes as a compliment from others (truthful others).
To be intelligent is totally inborn. So I can’t do much about it. However, to be smart is another thing which can make you always get away with anything. To be totally honest, a beautiful face melts into sweat once a woman opens her mouth. I did not say she has bad breath, but the way she speaks tantamount to the total package. Its hard to be beautiful only on photos with the aid of photoshop. We are in the real life!
Last but not the least is personality. There is this woman who is not endowed with physical beauty, she is not that smart too and to top it all she’s a bitch. That’s when personality comes in, its ok not to look like a goddess and to talk very articulately but if you have an attitude problem then its definitely not beautiful at all. Remember that perhaps above all of these, a beautiful heart matters the most.
I am writing this while watching The Buzz which is shown here in the Land of Kaugahan past midnight on a Sunday, imagine? I am really sleepy now and I have nothing to say good or bad to this month’s covers of the Philippines’ leading fashion magazines. What’s new when they are the same faces on the covers over and over again.
In a world where actors become singers (magic lipsync), you wouldn’t be surprised if singers become models, yes Playboy models. So after being in hiatus for some time from the music scene, Nina surprised her fans and non-fans with a Burleque-inspired cover spread for the June 2012 issue of Playboy. What’s going on your mind, bejeweled soul siren?
In another world of fab and beauty, you wouldn’t also be surprised if birds of the same feathers flock together. Bestfriendsies Liz Uy, Anne Curtis, Georgina Wilson, Isabelle Diaz and Solen Heusaff grace the June 2012 issue of Preview magazine.
So if I am to judge all this cover girls, would you be surprised if I say “Not Guilty?” (thanks to Madam Lady Senator from Iloilo for this line).
This the newest controversial cover of the season. Presenting, the cover that seemed like selling a whitening product. Honestly, at first glance I didn't notice the other women on the cover apart from Bella Padilla in a hot pink bikini. Then I realized, there were 2 other than her, then again I blinked and there were 5 other women on the cover. Please dont show this cover to Beyonce or Tyra Banks or Oprah! Pahhllleaaaseeeee…
"On Saturday, February 25, we uploaded the March issue with Bela Padilla on the cover on our Facebook page. Just hours later, a slew of comments on the supposed "racism" of the cover image and cover line flooded the magazine page, prompting the editorial team to re-examine the cover so that we could put into context its execution and assuage the concerns of our readers and non-readers as well who've weighed in on the issue.
"We took all the points into consideration and have decided to take the side of sensitivity.
"When FHM hits the stands in March it will have a different cover. We deem this to be the most prudent move in the light of the confusion over the previous cover execution.
"We apologize and thank those who have raised their points. We apologize to Bela Padilla for any distress this may have caused her. In our pursuit to come up with edgier covers, we will strive to be more sensitive next time." – FHM ***
