Maggie Cheung is on the cover of the May 31 issue of Jingpin Gouwu Zhinan or Lifestyle.

Launched in 1993, this tabloid-sized magazine was one of China's first commercial periodicals, and is certainly the longest lasting.

Lifestyle's content is a mixture between shopping guide and celebrity rag. It sells in Beijing for one yuan, is published twice a week, and claims a circulation of about 250 thousand, with a hand-on rate for each copy of around 4.

Maggie Cheung (Zhang Manyu) recently won the Best Actress award at Cannes for her role as a junkie mother in Olivier Assayas' Clean.
