But the question remains... for what purposes?

Maybe they thought she looked more attractive (which, in the reality of things, is important -- whether we think it should be or not) in the military photo compared to the spacesuit photo.

Maybe she was frowning or something in the spacesuit picture, and the Public Relations department of the Chinese space agency thought it didn't look good, so they copy/pasted in the smiling, attractive face.

Someone needed a photo of her in a space suit, couldn't find one so they made due. There isn't a conspiracy here.

Yeah, I don't see an intent to deceive, is there was in the old Soviet cosmonaut photo forgeries.

I've been advised by people who have worn them, that these cabin spacesuits ['Sokol' in Russian program] ply havoc with hair, and nobody's hair would look so good after crawling into one.

One possible other explanation -- she was a last-minute addition to the crew and there just wasn't time for an in-spacesuit session.

Seemed like nostalgia all over again:

“Cosmonauts and Cosmo-NOTS -- the history of Soviet space photographic forgeries and the lessons for the future.” In the early years of the Space Age, the Russians retouched dozens of photos of their cosmonauts to conceal unflattering information about accidents, setbacks, and misbehavior -- but Western investigators (led by Oberg) found original versions of the images and tracked down what the erased cosmonauts had really done, or had done to them.

Man isn't china the same place that doctored a photo of workers on the street?
And the funny thing is, they actually went to the place, but they photoshopped it as if they didnt
