Wei To Go: Before and After

An upcoming film called Lust, Caution features an actress well-known in China, but unknown in the west: Tang Wei.

I grabbed this series of stills from the hi-def trailer to illustrate the wisdom of judicious eyebrow pencil.

From peasant farm girl... urbane and sensual assassin:

Art Frahm: Illustrator, Pervert

On some level, the illustrations of Art Frahm require an analytical exegesis that draws upon centuries of art history, the foundations of Western psychology and an understanding of the male subconscious.

But on some other level they just require you to accept the presence of the leering uniformed guy, the fallen panties, and the shopping bag with celery sticking out of it.

Oh yeah - and the eyebrows.

What a perv.

Who Cares About Lashes?

In the news today:

Penelope Cruz was found to be guilty of wearing false eyelashes in an ad for L'Oréal cosmetics.

That's right: a make-up ad that didn't show the way a woman's face actually looks. This is outrageous!

Here's the offending pic:

We say forget about the stupid lashes. How about that paint job they did on her unruly, shaggy brows? For shame!

Here's what they usually look like (click to enlarge):

Don't get us wrong. Cruz has some redeeming qualities that almost make up for her unkempt eyebrows.

Suicide Girl: Maverick

Not a classic beauty. But some classic booty, and some rubber gloves - and decent eyebrows - thrown in for good measure.

Anatomie d'un Sourcil: Amira Casar

French actress and one-time model Amira Casar has the goods:

And you masochists out there who have consciously chosen to sit through a Catherine Breillat movie earned some small compensation for the pain you endured if you happened to choose Anatomie de l'Enfer (Anatomy of Hell). Hell, in this case, is having to sit through the endless existential rhetoric that is the hallmark of anguished French film-making. At least Breillat has the good sense to occasionally depict some explicit sex.

Meanwhile, though, even if Mlle. Casar's untamed nethermane and underarms were not your style, you probably can consider yourself lucky that she at least maintains the brows.

Scroll-down coming attractions:

When the film played in Italy they changed the name to Pornocrazia and featured three of Amira's best features on the poster: her two eyebrows and her right nipple. Eccola!!!

Belle Brows

There's a new contender, friends.

Camilla Belle
not only made her name perfect by dropping her last name (Routh), she made her brows perfect and at age 20 has a bright, bright future on our web site.

After modeling her US-born talent (with Brazilian genes for quality control), and leading in When a Stranger Calls, she will appear in an idiotic movie called 10,000 B.C. this year (screen cap below). But she's no stranger to the camera - her first print ad was at 9 months of age.

Posh Brows?

If you live in the same three dimensions that Blu does, you have doubtless been moved by the images of the Beckham family bending into Los Angeles this past week. Becks, who has been confused with the musician of the almost-same name by at least one acquaintance of ours, is past his footballing prime (if not actually washed up) but his wife may well have her best eyebrow years ahead of her.

At least, that's the way they made it look in this month's edition of W Magazine, where the couple is portrayed in various degrees of ecstatic communion.

Nevermind that the LA Galaxy are mopping up the bottom of the league tables. If all else fails, the City of Angels will have Posh's Lancômesque brows to enjoy.

Scroll-down bonus: Victoria's everyday non-magazine spread over-tweezed look:

Kidman again!

So she's on a roll. Nicole is in the movie version of some popular kids' book, The Golden Compass. As previously indicated I'd like to comp her ass, but it seems that this task falls of late to - that's right - 007, James Blond. He's in this movie, too.

Meanwhile, here is a photo from the movie's website, plus some (blurry) screenshots from the trailer.

Sorry, no nude Nicole now.

Cristina Garavaglia

Italian hottie Garavaglia made four or five bad movies with perv director Tinto Brass during the early nineties. Her eyebrows were as outrageously good as the movies were bad.

Scroll down bonus: Cristina with horrific late-'80s Italian long hair!

Nicole Kidman: The Invasion

So Nicole Kidman was paid $16 million to show up for a movie (coming soon!) called The Invasion (co-starring 007, James Blond). I predict it will be confused with The Visiting - oh wait, nobody saw that. Cool.

Anyway, sometimes her brows look good, but not always (unlike, say, her ass - speaking of invading):

Meanwhile, I think they've done a decent job with her eyebrows in this one. What do you say?

Scroll down straight to DVD!:

Megan Fox

Megan Fox is a no-name actress whose sole claim to fame before this summer was appearing in the same straight-to-video movies as Ashley Olsen and Lindsay "Freestyle" Lohan.

Now she's starring in the Transformers movie. Whatever. In this picture it looks like she Transformed into Angelina "Homewrecka" Jolie.

At least she's got brows.

Scroll-down rhetoric: Doesn't she look like a porn star in this picture? Not that you would know...

She Is Eyebrow

I found a random blog called Pages of My Life. A dyevushka named Anastasiya lives in Minsk (Belarus - look it up) and posts photos of herself on her blog. Each posting has a participle-impaired headline, like I Am Drink or I Am Drive.

I think maybe it's a cover for one of those Russian Girls for Love and Marriage deals, but I didn't really pay close attention.

I was just mostly looking at her eyebrows. Click through to her blog to see the postings, and be sure to check out the Flickr stream devoted to her as well. Some of the pictures are tagged with her nickname: Настя (Nastya).

The Hayden Panettierium

Back in May we commented on the never-say-die cheerleader from the dud series Heroes, Hayden Panettiere. She hasn't gone away yet, but fortunately, neither have her eyebrows.

Enjoy them.
