Another Set from Italy via B-IMAGINE

Every month we've been sending a postcard from Rome. So here are two more beauties from B-IMAGINE.

Not a Complete Failure

This was one of the less humorous postings on the Fail Blog, but we liked it nonetheless.

Amateurs for Last Weekend

We think last weekend slipped by without us providing adequate Amateur Hour coverage. So here are three pairs of ladies, most of whom are included for their brows.

There's clearly some oddness going on, and each photo is horrifying in its own way. But still...

Miss Italia Also-Rans

We saw the excellent results of the Miss Italy pageant the other day, but here are a couple of runners-up who deserve a peek.

First, Alessia Delli Veneri:

And The Perminator, Solena Maggiacomo:

Minka Double Oops

Loyal readers: a month ago we promised that we'd throw star-dating Minka Kelly's goods out there. And we hereby deliver.

First, in some kind of GQ video clip, she adjusts herself just enough to pop a nipple out there. Oops.

Then, out on the town, she does a classic limo exit maneuver and shares some leopard print panties. Leopard print panties? Really? Is that "classy"?

Whatever. Next time, back to the brows.

The Right Arch; Winslet

We find Kate Winslet to be sort of...boring. And the brows aren't special.

But the angle is right, as we saw in The Reader. Just right.

Cote Cutie

TV actorina Cote de Pablo (that's Chilean, and means "Side of Paul") is seen here sporting her Star of David, which on TV illustrates that the person is Israeli.

Della Casa Idyll

Here's Daniela again, the Sargentesque model photographed by Alessandro della Casa. Love it.

Sourcils des Iles Kerguelen

We're the kind of assholes who say stuff like, "We love maps."

We love maps.


Anyway, we were looking at one of the most obscure corners of the world in Google Earth, and noticed that on the remote Kerguelen Islands in the southern Indian Ocean there is a geographic featured called the Falaise des Sourcils noirs (that's French!).

It translates as the Cliff of the Black Eyebrows.

Holy Nancy Drew! We love maps! Here it is:

And here is a photo of the lonely nearby Black Eyebrow Point. We love that someone named the area for black eyebrows, but we can't help wondering why. We could Google it, of course.

Anyway, this can hardly be satisfying to you, since what you really want is T and A. And we don't know what time is on Kerguelen, but it's amateur hour here. So here's a T to start the weekend.

Caroline McCarthy's Social Brows

We noticed the eyebrows on this artistic rendering of blogger Caroline McCarthy, who writes The Social over on C|Net.

So we got to wondering what she really looks like. And here she is:

She's cute in the way that dork tech bloggers could be cute, but actually are not.

Then we saw this, and we had to include it. So much to say about it – and yet, it speaks for itself.

Miss Universe Follow Up

There was one other set of not-so-bad brows in the Miss Universe pageant, that we told you about the other day. The eyebrows belong to Miss Lebanon, Martine Andraos.

Ms. Andraos's mischievous look and beatific smile – not to mention her almost unreal skin tone – all made us feel as if we were in the presence of something, or someone, so familiar. And yet, it escaped us.

Until now.

Now Blonde: Suicide Girl Atlas

One thing we love about Suicide Girl Atlas is that the first time we saw her she had black hair. She looked awesome.

Later she reappeared with a blue do. This worked for us!

Then she took herself to the shore and became a redhead, and we applauded.

Now she's on a roof top somewhere in the desert, facing the rising sun. And her hair is blonde.

One thing that hasn't changed? The brows are nice.

Post Number 1,200: An Old Magazine Cover

This is our 1,200th post.

What have you done lately?

Nothing earth-shattering to celebrate. Just a vintage Vogue cover with great brows on the model and on the mask.

Photographer: Katarina Smuraga

Flickr of course provides hours of entertainment of all kinds. But it's also a way station for photographers who occupy that murky limbo between amateur and pro.

Maybe they have a great eye but no fancy hardware. Maybe they have a studio set up but don't know from lighting. Maybe they have fancy equipment and suck at photography.

Wherever you think Katarina Smuraga fits in, she at least has some side boob in her photos. And some odd eyebrows.

We just invited this freckle face to our Flickr group! And we love the square format too.

Here are some others:

Up and Under Amateurs

It's the weekend already? Must be amateur hour.

Whatever the hell is happening here, we want some.

Suicide Girl: Xtine

We were going to get all patriotic and pensive and stuff because it's 9/11, and we were thinking about how completely stupid suicide bombers are (for a bunch of reasons), and that made us think about Suicide Girls, so instead we're just going to flood the blog today with Xtine.

Also, we didn't have any tags that began with the letter X. Now we do.

The last letter in the alphabet not represented in our tags is Q, but we have Queen Rania on the blog. We just screwed up by tagging her posts with "Rania."

Miss Universe 2009

OK, stick with us, folks.

First things first: Miss Universe 2009 is Stefanía Fernández from Venezuela. And her brows ain't bad. Congratulations to her. Of course, the fix was obviously in, because she replaced someone from her own country, Dayana Mendoza. Anyway, here are the eyebrows:

Now the question becomes, did the ultimate winner have the best eyebrows? We're going to run through some alternate possibilities here and let you all decide – after telling you whom we would have picked (hint: it's not Miss Venezuela).

First up, Mayella Mena, Miss El Salvador. Not bad, but not world class by any means:

Next, Klelia Yiasemidou, Miss Cyprus. Pretty good, but we like a little more arch to our pageant brow:

How about Miss Kosovo, Gona Dragusha? Uh, we don't like feeling as if Miss Universe is on the verge of killing us by stabbing us through the ear drum with her stiletto no (actually we do like that, but can't admit it here):

Another candidate is Ekta Chowdhry, Miss India. We love her skin, and her nose. But the brows are wider near the outside ends than near the nose, which is ... backwards. Too bad:

OK, three more to choose's Miss Serbia, Dragana Atlija. Good stuff, but that vertical end screams "used to be a unibrow!" Sorry:

How do you feel about Miss Bolivia, Dominique Peltier? We feel that she ... is a man! Bzzzt:

That leaves just Miss Netherlands, Avalon-Chanel Weyzig. She has the taper and she has the arch. Folks, she's our pick! We'd love to see her nether lands! Namsayin'?

As a bonus, in an upcoming post we'll take a look at one contestant's tribute to the King of Pop. Stay tuned!
