Kosovar Arta Dobroshi

We'll close out February with a beautiful new face: Arta Dobroshi.

The actress is the star of Le Silence de Lorna, a film which we'd never heard of before today when we stumbled across a reference to it in some movie web site.

We watched the trailer (screen capture at bottom of this posting) a couple of times, but honestly, the only things we think we know are that the people are in Belgium and they come from Albania and maybe Russia.

It doesn't matter. She has great eyebrows.

Scroll-down comment to the movie: OK, OK. We're clean.

What's an Arnezeder?

We are filled with questions today.

What the hell kind of a name is Nora Arnezeder?

And what's a faubourg?

Answers after the jump.

That name is what happens when when an Austrian dude and an Egyptian lady meet in Bali and have a child. That child ends up as an actress in a French movie called Faubourg 36. And a faubourg is a neighborhood that used to be outside the city, but that is now within it. A useful word.

We Loved It First: Chip Willis Hits the News Stand

If this image looks familiar, it's because we showed it some love last August.

Now some Russkies from Bolshoi Gorod ("Big City") have gotten their mittens on it and made it the cover of their current issue.

We say congrats to Chip Willis on this cover, the first of many, we're sure.

Hottest Lips in Hollywood? Maybe

Tatler says so about Rose Byrne. Then again, they also say the A303 is "the most social road in Britain."

Scroll-down back issue: We saw Monica Belluci in Russian Tatler. Soon we'll see someone else too...

Eyes: Never Bigger Than Your Purse

At least, that's what the folks at now-defunct department store chain Ohrbach's would have you believe. Back in the day, along with Gimbels and B. Altman (or "Baltman" as we called it when we were kids), an occasional eye-catching eyebrow would appear in an ad like this one.

Where Was JC?

No sign of Jennifer Connelly at the Oscars™ this week, so we're pretending she was there by posting this photo. So there.

Photographer: Cristian Crisbasan

Speaking of Chip Willis (we were, a day ago), he turned his readers on to the work of Cristian Crisbasan.

Check it. This one is titled Smile:

This one, Rhetoric:

This one doesn't have a title, so we're calling it... Eyebrow:

Gorgeous stuff.

Best Eyebrow on an Actress in a Supporting Role

Or something like that.

We checked out the starlets and their dresses and their whatevers and decided on the following eyebrow award winners for the Academy Awards™ in 2009.

The winners in the eyebrow category are:

Penelope Cruz...

Natalie Portman...

Anne Hathaway...

Chip Has Spoken

One of our figure photography pet peeves is the ubiquitous black and white shot of a nude model with light filtering through a venetian blind, making a stripey pattern on her body. Ooooh!! Contours!!! Ooooh!!! Art!!!! Whatever. Get a new idea.

Meanwhile, one of our favoritest photographers, Chip Willis, has weighed in with his own version. What is it that, in his words, he will "NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER EVER EVER EVER NEVER EVER NEVER EVER NEVER EVER use" on a model?

Click through to his blog to find out (we agree), and meanwhile enjoy this work from his lens:

Della Casa In the House

We love this. It's from photographer Alessandro della Casa, whom we met in January.

How Not to Go Out in Public

You know, some girls never learn. They go out in public without realizing that everyone can see just how bad their dye job is.

Freakstyle Reminds Us: Brazilians Party

Carnival season is upon us...and nobody celebrates Fat Tuesday like the Brazilians. To get in the mood, they party all year long, and the folks at Freakstyle document the scene. We tweaked these recent pics for your pleasure and amusement...

What's cuter than this? Nothing:

Overheard at the Beach: Megan Fox

From Overheard at the Beach:

Friend #1
: You know who's really hot? Megan Fox.

Friend #2 (in nonchalant agreement): Yeah, she's really hot. (more excitedly) You know who else is hot?
Friend #1: Who?
Friend #2: That brunette chick from the Transformers movie--damn.
Friend #1: Megan Fox?
Friend #2: Oh.

Actress Anne Consigny

We don't know a thing about this French actress, other than her name (Anne Consigny) and her eyebrows. If we find out something interesting, we'll see her again.

We Screwed Up: About Rachel

When you have 900 blog posts under your belt, it's easy to overlook one-name amateurs. But we really owe Rachel an apology. Two apologies, actually.

First, we posted three photos of her undressing. But we didn't realize there was a fourth installment (our file cabinets are a mess). So you'll want to see this, because she's got the eyebrow thing going, along with a whole topless look that we appreciate:

The second apology is owed for the fact that just a few months ago, we showed the same young lady baking up a storm. How did we miss the fact that it's the same Rachel? Must have been distracted.

Hilary Rhoda Cleaned Up Nicely

We checked in with Maryland-born model Hilary Rhoda last October, and promised we'd check back to see how those fearsome but fraying brows were shaping up. Here's the update.

Good news
. She's in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit thing, and the brows look as bold as ever, but just a little more managed. Can't wait to see her again!

Malysheva's Eyebrow Paint Job

We saw model Olga Malysheva full frontal at Tiffany's.

Here's a slightly closer look at some outrageous eye makeup.

Sometimes a Lipstick is...

...a proxy for a phallus.

We're not big Freud fans, but advertising is hardly always the subtle art of the psychological. In other words, doesn't this remind you of oral sex? Nice sidebrow, anyway.

Muriel and Marlene from Hegre

Today is President's Day in the United States, a more real holiday than Valentine's Day, insofar as some government stuff is closed.

And Petter Hegre is the President of Nudity. The photo above of a model named Muriel proves it. And in case you weren't sure if this was porn, well, it's not. The URL for the web site has the word "Art" in it. So that settles that.

Anyway, since we sense some lingering doubt on your part, here's part of the image that currently graces the site's home page. An art model named Marlene.

Scroll-down hedged bet: We couldn't decide on the whole art/porn thing ourselves, so we used both tags.

Estee Lauder?

We hardly know her!

You should be getting used to this by now.

They claim the makeup is "nutritious," and whatever is in it, the eyebrows are having a feast. And that's good.

Who is the model?

Almost Enough to Make Us Remember Valentine's Day

Number us among the grouchy anomie-ridden sociopaths who hate Valentine's Day and the people who revere it.

But number us, too, among the stricken who gaze in shock and awe at Elizabeth Taylor's 1950s-era eyebrows.

This was Found in Mom's Basement.

Sorry I Missed Your...Eyebrows

One of our current favorite time-wasters is Sorry I Missed Your Party (Pictures of Other People's Parties from Flickr). These odd-acting, fool-looking amateurs popped up in Gator Nation.

Hearsts: Pro and (ex-) Con

You're too young, but we remember when ungrateful heiress Patty Hearst joined the "seven-headed serpent," the Symbionese Liberation Army and robbed banks (because that's where the money is. Even if you're rich.).

Her mug shot tells an ugly story. Not a story of how power corrupts, how dissolute youth can go astray, how America lost its way in the '70s....but a story of how not to pluck your eyebrows:

Fast forward. Now she's more likely to be known as the mom of supermodel Lydia Hearst, who appears below in Self Service. No 1975-style eyebrows here, thank god. But a definite resemblance to mom.

"All I Wanted Was a Little Head"

And that's what she got.

Portugal's Photographer Daniel Oliveira

Olhares does it again. This time photographer Daniel Oliveira's work is featured.

Camay's Caressing Care

Apparently there was "fine cold cream" in Camay many decades ago. Whatever was in the cold cream was making this model's eyebrows grow. We're down with that. This ad was Found in Mom's Basement.
