Michael Johnson Illustration

Although Joe Bowler is our fave eyebrow illustrator, Michael Johnson gets a well-deserved post of his own today....

Gradisco le sue sopracciglie...

Banner Brows

Every once in a while a banner ad or annoying pop-up catches our attention for the right reason.

Like this one.

What Do You Get When You Cross...

A purebred Yasmeen Ghauri

Supermodel, blah blah. We just love the brows. And stuff.

Scroll down bonus: Ghauri with Monica Bellucci!

More Formula I Eyebrows

Pit babes from the Brazilian GP of Formula I last year. And headphones!

"This is a Dodge!"

In 1956 Chrysler's Dodge division decided it could market a car strong enough for a man, but made for a woman: the Dodge La Femme. No joke. It was pink and white two-tone, and - get this - it came with an unorthodox accessory package: a matching pink rain cape, purse, and umbrella.

Sweet. And best of all, the ads featured these lovely eyebrows. Those were the days...

Of course, the marketing effort was a complete disaster. You don't see a lot of La Femmes in old family movies...

Drea DeMatteo

Don't know.

Don't care.


The second posting ever on Blubrow was Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai. She's in the news this week, getting married to an Indian actor. We don't care much for Bollywood - too much color, too much wavy hand stuff, and too much blinking. But we do dig sitar.

But congrats to Aish. We love her eyebrows.

[Click images for the full treatment. These are large files.]

Scrolldown bonus: Video, baby!! Crank up the volume...

Double bonus! Trivia: Aishwarya was born in Mangalore, India.

Keira Again

Knightley would be good. Or weekly.

I'm down for whatever.

Don't forget to click the images for full-size eyebrowy goodness.

Elizabeth Taylor

Whenever I see Elizabeth Taylor on film, one word pops into my head. The word is: "fierce."

Then recently I read an admiring comment about her by Paul Newman, and he used the word "ferocious." So I guess I'm not far off.

Scrolldown bonus: My dad used to joke, "But they never said what Butterfield ate."

Suicide Girl: Claudia

We continue our search for the best eyebrows among the 149,000 photos over at Suicide Girls. Here's Claudia from her set called Twisted. Not bad. And like most of the SGs, she looks best when she's smiling.

Lookr from Flickr

Thanks to photographer Schwede123 this somewhat bizarre beauty is available for us to contemplate on Flickr.

French Actress Claire Keim

Have we mentioned how we feel about French women? I thought so. Well here's another - Claire Keim, seen periodically on French screens. Oh la la...

More Formula I: Melbourne

In an earlier post we commented on the "pit babes" present at Formula I automobile races internationally. We neglected to mention that there is another category of young lady seen on the track: grid girls. These are the ladies who smile and hold up signs marking the starting position of each driver's car. We'll collect pictures of them as well, but in the meantime here are some ladies spotted at the Australian GP.

What's the Portuguese Word for 'Cosupure'?

Do you know what the Japanese word "コスプレ" means? That's right: cosplay. Look it up if you don't know what it is. Turns out that in Brazil, there are a lot of people who enjoy this pastime. Here are a few examples...we like the last picture best. Lots going on there!

Resident Eyebrow: Sandrine Holt

We like watching the Resident Evil movies. Why? Because zombies are awesome!

Just kidding! Zombies make sorry monsters. They are among the worst movie monsters we know. They're slow and they're dumb. We prefer monsters that are fast and smart. But we digress.

The real reason we like Resident Evil (besides Nemesis) is Milla Jovovich. But Resident Evil: Apocalypse has a bonus (and it's not Sienna Guillory, who is boring despite her hot outfit and many guns). It's Sandrine Holt.

Holt's father is Chinese and her mother is French. And you know how we feel about the French. We first noticed her in Black Robe, then Rapa Nui (which is Polynesian for "cute rack"), and a bunch of TV crap, like 24 and Witchblade and stuff. But enough. Just enjoy.

Scroll-down bonus trivia: She's 5'10" (yeah!), and her birth name is Sandrine Ho.

Try Byrneing This One...

What's that you ask? "Who is Rose Byrne?"

I don't know. But who cares?

Sci Fibrows: Claudia Black

Yeah, I know! When I saw Aussie hottie Claudia Black in the sometimes-watchable sci fi show Farscape (above) I thought I had died and gone to Eyebrow Heaven.

And when she showed up on a show that was actually (relatively) good, Stargate SG-1, I was floored. But while the Farscape makeup experts played up her good raw eyebrow materials, the Stargaters were in my opinion too restrained and failed to quite live up to the potential.

No matter. She's a fine addition to the Blubrow chronicles.

We Don't Need A Reason

Daisies Duke It Out - UPDATED

Remember The Dukes of Hazzard? Not the remake, asshole. The TV show.

No? Then you're too young. I stumbled on a picture of '80s chick Catherine Bach, famous for being Daisy Duke on the television series. Here she was. Her eyebrows weren't bad. Among other things.

If you're smart, you will not Google her to find out what she looks like now. Nonetheless, if you're in the right place at the right time, you will find the occasional girl sporting Daisy Dukes, as they came to be known, and you may even catch one or two with decent eyebrows.

Oh, and if you remember enjoying Catherine Bach as Melody in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, you get serious bonus points (watch the trailer and see if you can spot her - don't blink!). I just remember the Buick Riviera that gets shot up in the gas station chase scene - my dad had the same car in pearlescent candy apple red.

Here's a little hint for those of you having trouble finding Daisy in the trailer:
