LOOK-ALIKES ON THE COVERS
Browsing through hundreds, no thousands, of magazine covers, I found similarities of how the covers were presented, the angles, the features, and of course the persons on the cover. Yes, the persons on the covers that seemingly the mirror image of another – look-alikes.
Since my high school days, I ostensibly developed some kind of mental retentivity. Recalling things that I have seen is a part of this. Using this ability, I tried collecting the images of magazine covers with similar features. Believe me, there are many.
Below are some of them.
Let us start with the “not so obvious.” When you look at the two successive MOD covers (October and November 2012), you would think Bea Alonzo and Marian Rivera are sisters. Look at the facial features, especially the eyes and lips. And I considered these “not so obvious.”

Here are two more MOD cover pages exactly eight months apart, where you might think of experiencing déjà vu with Angel Aquino (MOD Filipina, June 19, 1992) and Josephine Velasquez (MOD, February 19, 1993). As you look on their lips, it’s like two succeeding frames in a screen shot.

Maybe it’s just my imagination playing wild. Maybe it’s just a freak combination of photographic effects. Whether one admit it or not, for this particular comparison, Eula Valdez is a look-alike of Natassa Kinski. Pouting lips and all.

This one is not new. Many may have already noticed that Rufa Mae Quinto looks very much like Jessa Zaragoza, but it’s still fun to behold in this two covers of Sexy Movie Stars Komiks Magazine.

Ah now this is just about nearly perfect. Maricar Reyes on the cover of Maven and Arci Muñoz on the cover of Bannawag. Don’t blink and tell me if they don’t look very much like the same lady.

Wide-brimmed dimpled smiles bring out the best in cover girls. You can see apparent similarities with the way ladies give their smiles. Just look at Agot Isidro and Audrey Tan.

In the next three comparisons, one needs added imagination. For there are similarities that cannot be seen in a single glance. For instance, I often play in my imagination the faces of Cindy Kurleto and Liv Tyler, and in many instances, they seem to look alike. Trish Loyola has her own unique beauty, but an angle or two and she would have an aura like that of Tetchie Agbayani. The same with Tracy Torres, and the late Claudia Zobel, eyes, nose, smiles, and sexy bodies.

What do Solenn Heussaff and Maggie Quigley have in common? The quick answers would be that they’re both actresses, have tattoos, and real hardcore femme fatale. Now look at the following cover pages and wonder.

This one is another ringer. I initially thought it was Lea Salonga on both covers because of her name in the Palmolive Soap print ad at the right bottom corner. I bet nine out of 10 people will make the same mistake.

MORE TO COME!
