Angelina Jolie, Keira Knightley
Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Thursday, September 13, 2007 1:22 PM (Eastern)


Angelina Jolie ad for Shiseido

Again with the utterly colorless background and dress, making her sublime blue-green eyes jump out at you.

You'll note how simple her makeup is here. Just a little eyeliner and neutral shadows, nude lipstick, and mascara.




Pub coco mademoiselle

I'm less crazy about the Keira Knightley ad for Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle perfume. I actually like Keira Knightley, thought she made a bold and brilliant debut in her films. What I find disturbing, is this trend toward 1970's-style anorexic thinness. It didn't work in the 70's. What's up with bringing it back?

Finding this weirdly mesmerizing...
Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Saturday, August 25, 2007 2:40 AM (Eastern)



This is the "clean" version; the other had the blogger's URL slapped on it toward the end--yeah, I was tempted to post the other one, but anyway...

I can admit I have zero temptation to buy the product, and was attracted to the video purely from fond memories of Lara Croft, Girl, Interrupted, et cetera. As much hype surrounds Angelina Jolie, I always liked her work. But after a while, playing it back a few times, I ended up liking the ad itself.

It's totally meaningless, yet beautifully, almost geometrically designed, what with the lines of the silver jewelry (oh, I'm sure it's platinum or something, I meant the color), the color of Jolie's eyes and the mesmerizing pink lipcolor (that would make me look like a ghoul)...really well done. You don't think about it consciously, but Jolie's eyes and the lip product are the only "colors" in the ad; everything else is her skin, or silver or white.

Angelina Jolie is weirdly mesmerizing. She's an extremely talented actress, though everyone's fawning over her has only been since she got some work done on her face. She seems like she's her own person; that's like the rarest thing in Hollywood.

Dain stole my comment, LOL! I've always been weirdly mesmerized with Jolie. I've had a girl-crush on her since I first saw her.

She's really impressed me since becoming a mom, she has got GREAT mom style!
