Down with Dior

Flicking through Harpers Bazaar UK recently, I came across an ad that gave me a bit of a giggle. Does the marketing team at Dior seriously think that anybody believes their product is responsible for this 'version' of Sharon Stone? And when I say version, its one of THE most photoshopped images Ive ever come across! Look at Sharon's left eye - she no longer has an eyelid!

'More beautiful today than at 20' they say. So at 20, was Sharon without eyelids?

This kind of advertising makes me annoyed. I like to consider myself an intelligent person, but this image is telling me I should believe that a 52 year old actress looks this way because of a 'Super Serum'.

Give me a break.

  1. Yes. Totally agree with you. I think they think we're thick and we'd buy into this idea of computerised perfection. What a load of tripe. Thanks for the rant xx

  2. Hey Babe,
    I found you on Twitter and was just wondering what is the brand of that houndstooth coat that you are wearing in your background pic?

    I am so in love with it! And you!

  3. Oh wow, the coat is absolutely stunning! It is perfection. You should seriously consider designing a clothing line, you wouldn't have to sew them just do the designs!

    That coat would sell out.
