Marian Rivera’s first men’s magazine feature

Manual magazine, October 2007

Earlier at 24 Oras, a very anticipated Chika Minute news bit was for Marimar Philippines Marian Rivera’s first full feature, including cover, in a local men’s magazine. The only big surprise they had left for the actual chika was which men’s magazine was it for. It turned out to be Manual magazine, the lesser popular magazine which is not entirely full-on machismo when it comes to their photo shoots. I had hoped it was either FHM or Maxim, but I’m guessing Manual might have booked Mariam early on without even knowing she’d be blown out of proportion (popularity) because of Marimar.

The shoot has finished, there were snippets of her while she was posing so anyone who saw the news already has an idea of how “sexy” the feature will turn out. Not much skin I have to say. I’m thinking they will go along the lines of Angel Locsin’s FHM shoots – more classy sexy than almost-nude sexy. Plus, they interviewed the chief editor, RJ Ledesma, and he admits that Marian did not wear the usual skimpy outfits normally seen in other men’s magazines. He goes on by saying that “sexy” does not really mean nude, and in her feature, “sexy” means the way she projects herself in front of the lens and how she carries the clothes they chose for her.

Marian adds that there are other offers for her to pose in the other magazines. She said that it is only her first feature and she even said, “…gagawin ko po ‘yan,” when asked if we will still see more of her in sexy pictorials. Watch out for Marian’s Manual photos in October, I’ll be sure to grab one as soon as it hits the newsstands.
