It turns out it’s not the first time that the two’s looks were compared to one another. A netizen reminisced when people thought that Suzy’s wax figure looked like Aquino herself.
She was also said to have looked like Miyawaki Sakura, a member of the Japanese girl group HKT48 and K-Pop group Iz*One.
Her supporters also joined in the trend and flexed that she was the first girl they “stanned.”

On the other hand, a funny picture of the Colegio San Agustin 1988 yearbook resurfaced. It showed Kris Aquino, who was the associate editor of the campus newspaper.
A little anecdote about her was also written, but a line stood out to the netizens: “Her mouth definitely needs a zipper.”
Indeed the Queen of All Media, Aquino’s beauty also went viral on Facebook.
A few years after she graduated from Ateneo de Manila University with a degree in English Literature, Aquino started her showbiz career by launching her own talk show, Kris, in 1996. In the next decade, she became the host of other shows such as Startalk, Today with Kris Aquino, The Buzz, Game KNB?, and Morning Girls with Kris and Korina.
She also appeared in notable movies like Mano Po, So… Happy Together, Feng Shui, and Sisterakas.
In 2018, she landed a role in the Hollywood film adaptation of the novel Crazy Rich Asians, where she played the role of Princess Intan.
She started producing her own content on her social media accounts in 2015, featuring vlogs, challenges, cooking, and travel videos.
