Last night I was reading a magazine when I noticed every advertisement had an actor instead of a model. I know this isn’t new, but there were so many Hollywood faces in a row.
First there was Michelle Williams for Dior. Wearing her coat backwards, like Kriss Kross from the 80’s.
Next was Marion Cotillard, who has a touch of Greyscale on her right arm. Poor chérie, she must have touched a stoneman.
Then we have
Bella Kristen Stewart, who has a jawline is like a Toblerone and a vintage camera in tow, for that indie feel.
Natalie Portman, who is wearing a lot of lipstick. You know she’s a vegan, right? Is Dior lipstick vegan? She has to wear vegan shoes and for the record, vegan shoes are terrible. Bad shoes bring down an outfit. Vegan shoes bring down a country.
And finally Eva Mendes, who set back women’s right with her tracksuit pants comments of recent times, and is also the baby mama of the Gosling gosling.
There are many others but these were the ones in my magazine.
So actresses are now models, and models are now actresses. And it seems the trend isn’t stopping. Suki Waterhouse, model and part time beard, is now an ‘actor’. Kate Upton is ‘acting’, although her latest TVC for some game is the worst thing since Cindy Crawford in Fair Game.
It’s a lot of pressure on the actresses, isn’t it? To be model body ready?
No wonder they exist on air and Diet Coke.
