MANILA, Philippines – Kapamilya star Kim Chiu again showed her sexy side as she appeared in a backless dress on the cover of Metro magazine in its May issue.

Chiu, who is gracing the cover of Metro for the sixth time, was photographed wearing an elegant black dress and showing her bare back. The cover was shot by photographer BJ Pascual, while Denise Go-Ochoa did her makeup. Chiu's hair was styled by Jerry Javier.

According to Metro’s Facebook page, the issue will feature a “fierce and fabulous” Chiu as she sports summer’s most sophisticated trends.

Just last week, Chiu posted her photo wearing a two-piece swimsuit in the image-sharing site Instagram to welcome "another chapter" of her life as she turned a year older last Friday.

Much to everyone’s surprise, the photo was seen by many as a bold move for the Kapamilya star, who has been known for her wholesome image since winning the reality TV show "Pinoy Big Brother" in 2006.

But Chiu shrugged off the idea that she is now ready to take on daring roles and leave her wholesome image behind.

“Side view lang iyon. One angle lang ng body. Hindi mo nga kita ang tiyan ko. Hindi pa ako ready. Huwag naman muna, okay pa ako na ganito. Isang picture lang,” she told ABS-CBN News.

The actress said she is happy being the simple girl her supporters have learned to love for the past seven years.
