Bras + Brows = Party

Take some brunettes with nice eyebrows, get a crappy camera with a bad flash, serve up some frosting and beer, and (as they say in France):


Instant party:

Then yell, "Bra party!!!" and keep snapping those photos. Thank you to the anonymous donor of these pictures...

Scroll-down reminder: This hearkens back to our September posting, bottom photo, in which they meant to do that.

Guest Blogger Tells a Halloween Tale: Pier, Marisa, Maria and Tina

The other day, faithful subscriber Beth dropped an awesome comment on us. It was about Pier Angeli and her wacky, tragic life and family. We hereby offer you that comment, converted into a blog posting, complete with the pictures that Beth linked to, to illustrate her gripping narrative.

Most of all, though — as always — check out the brows...Here's what Beth said in response to our latest on Pier:

"Chain of tragic event and fabulous eyebrow relationships....

Pier's twin was Marisa Pavan:

Marisa married Jean-Pierre Aumont:

...and raised the daughter he'd had with Dominican actress Maria Montez, who'd drowned in a bathtub several years earlier.

This stepdaughter of Marisa's (niece of dear Pier) was named Tina Aumont and was also incredibly gifted in the brow department.

Tina died of a pulmonary embolism last Halloween.

All in all, some hot brows and tangled stories tinged with sadness.


And one year later, R.I.P., Mlle. Aumont. Whew.

Laura Branigan: Wait, Don't Tell Me...Uh...1983?

Blu's Our Name, Drunk's Our Game

Check out this neat illusion.

If you stare at this photo long enough, you will see a woman exposing herself!

Scroll-down expiatory compensation: Yeah, we think it's funny the way "Blu" shows up on the beer bottle. But her eyebrows suck! So here's another drunk amateur, with slightly better eyebrows!

Suicide Girl: Talyn

We thought Talyn was a city in Estonia. Shows how much we know. Nothing.

Talyn is this Suicide Girl with these great eyebrows. Here she is now:

Topless Vintage Bleach Blonde with Brows

Subject line says it all, doesn't it?

Spanning and Scanning: Nicole Trunfio

A couple of weeks ago we promised we'd see a more polished and professional modeling gig from Oz's Nicole Trunfio. Well this may not be what you had in mind, but if it disappoints you, just sit tight — we'll be back with more of her.

Whoever scanned these two-pages spreads did a not-bad job of setting them up to look "normal." That's unusual, as are Nicole's awesome eyebrows. And stuff.

The Eyebrow Ads of 1991

Thanks to our friends at Found in Mom's Basement, we don't have to volunteer at the Boy Scout Recycling Drive anymore to see awesome eyebrows in print ads from women's magazines. Here's proof!

Of course, one great thing about the Recycling Drive was sorting the publications into categories: Catalogs, Regular Magazines, and Porn. So for those of you pining for the latter, here's a hit:

Scroll-down explanatory plaque: The cover girl on this 1990 copy of Lui is Léonor Scherrer, daughter of fashion designer Jean-Louis Scherrer .

Megan Fox: Fair and Balanced Eyebrows

We've said it before: We don't love Megan Fox. We're not even really sure who she is. But we know you love her, so here she is. Eyebrows and all:

Regal Eden Riegel

We don't watch soap operas – except the Brazilian novelas dubbed into Spanish for Mexican TV – so we didn't notice incredibly cute Eden Riegel until now. Oops!

She's seen here on the right, with some of her colleagues (we think) from her online series Imaginary Bitches.

She attended Harvard but wisely quit so we could eventually see her on the red carpet:

The brows have that dental-instrument angle that we love, and are maybe just a tiny bit asymmetrical. That makes them more interesting.

Scroll-down fanboy tribute video: Yay for YouTube!

We Are in Love Yet Again: Melody Gardot

Listen. We love jazz. We love skirts. We love eyebrows. Guess what?

We love Melody Gardot. Because of her voice, most of all. But also because of these other things. Check her out. Then read on below...

Scroll-down true inspirational story that makes us love her more:
Melody was in a serious accident at age 19, and suffered several permanent physical problems as a result. We'll spare you the details, but suffice to say that we going to Facebook to become Fans of "Medicine" for making it possible for us to enjoy Melody and her music. And to Melody we say: Kick ass!

Kurylenko! Kome Kwikly!

We're still figuring out exactly what a quantum of solace is, but while you wait for the James Blonde movie to arrive, here's another of Bond's Olga Kurylenko:

Photographer: Fernando Bagnola

If the worst thing about Fernando Bagnola's web site is the machine translated About Me section, he's doing just fine. Turn the sound on and enjoy the cool jazz while you wait for the Flash images to load...then enjoy this Brazil– and Portugal–based artist's work.

700th Post: Twins!

We don't know who these twins are, but we figured that four eyebrows and a nipple would be a suitable way to celebrate our 700th posting!

OK, three eyebrows. But still...

Freakstyle Checks In: Vai! Festa!

Promise us that if you find yourself in Brazil, you'll head over to party with the people of Freakstyle.

We've documented their street-wise fashion radar before. And they have a regular series of par-tays (that's Portuguese), with fine folks like those you see here. So visit them and report back.

Scroll-down eye-damage: Here is Freakstyle's Vai! party page on MySpace. Get some bandages for your eyes, and turn up the volume while you scroll through the party pics.

Hey, does that first photo mean we should use the "smoking" tag? Nah.

Yes, Bulgaria Is Next: Model and Photographer Tanya Gramatikova

So the other day I jokingly said, "What's next — Bulgaria?" Guess what?

That's exactly what's next. Feast your eyes on the multi-talented Tanya Gramatikova. Her talents? She's an outstanding artistic photographer. And...she's a model. Behold:

If you're still breathing, you are not paying attention.

What's better than a beautiful woman with great eyebrows...?

...A beautiful woman with great eyebrows who can take great photos and look great modeling for great photos. We're a fan!

Yeah! It's a photo based on that famous movie, Naked-ass Breakfast at Tiffany's! From the lens of Russia's Alexey Aloisov [deviantART login required] here is model Olga Malysheva:

From Montenegro: Marija Vujović

Check out runway model Marija Vujović (now that we've shed some of our guilt about objectifying women via the fashion industry). She has worked with many fashion and glamour photographers, including Patrick Demarchelier.

First Albania, now Montenegro. What's next — Bulgaria?

Scroll-down geography & government trivia lesson: Marija was born in Podgorica, Montenegro. But when she was born (1984) it was Titograd, Yugoslavia. And her uncle is Filip Vujanović — the President of Montenegro. I guess that makes her the Lauren Bush of Montenegro. Or something.

Ali Michael Spoke Up

At Blubrow we don't get all high and mighty, or even act as if we care. But here (in addition to these photos of beautiful model Ali Michael) is something worth thinking about.

If you start at the eyebrows, as we do, and then work your way down, you'll generally find the rest of the woman carrying those brows around. And sometimes that woman is a fashion model.

So...If you were a young woman who was 5'9" and weighed 129 lbs., do you think your legs would be "too plump"? We don't think so.

But we know that if you were that woman and you were a fashion model and some industry bigshot in Paris told you that, you would believe it. And then you'd drop almost 30 lbs. That's what happened to model Ali Michael.

So we aren't going to give a lecture. We're going to drop these Numéro Tokyo photos on you (and by the way, Ali was mentioned to us via an email from the same reader who brought us Emina and Atossa). After you've enjoyed that, scroll back up and check out Ms. Michael's scrawny thighs, then check out the video embedded below.

That's all we're gonna say.

Actress Atossa Leoni

A loyal reader (thank you!) turned us on to Atossa Leoni. Who else but someone born in Germany, of Iranian descent, and living in L.A. could portray an Afghan woman? Meet Ms. Leoni of Kite Runner fame. We'll see more of her, we are quite sure.

Yahoo!'s Sexy Eyebrow Celebs Galore

We are so totally, digitally close to the interblags that we noticed something on our Yahoo! home page. It was a little box that had links to the most "popular mobile searches: Celebrities."

And we noticed that most of the celebrities (all of whom are women) were people you've seen on this very blog. So let's check them out:

Kim Kardashian:

Hayden Panettiere:

Mila Kunis:

Keira Knightley:

And here's one whom we haven't featured, but who (in this photo anyway) just made the cut...

Jessica Alba:

Alas, not all the popular mobilely searched celebs made the cut. We're going to have to leave you without a photo of Jessica Simpson's eyebrows. They just aren't up to par.

Hope you liked the others! Click 'em all.
