Dame Helen Mirren is the new face of the L’Oreal Paris Excellence Age Perfect campaign! Helen Mirren makes her debut in the excellence Age Perfect Hair Colour Commercial in the UK and looks as incredible as always. I hope I look this incredible at 69!
I’m a massive anglophile and it likely all started with Helen Mirren! I’ve always had such a girl crush on her and have seen all her movies at least give times each! As far as I’m concerned L’Oreal couldn’t go with a better person to represent mature, glamorous women the world over!
But honestly, Helen, you and I, we’ll always have Caligula, wink, wink, nudge, nudge!
I hope to see her make an appearance on our side of the pond in L’Oreal ads at some point too.
Dita Von Teese Erotique is one of FOUR perfumes that I had NO IDEA about. I must be clueless because I didn’t realize Dita Von Teese had released a range of fragrances. Eh? When!? Did I miss the memo!?
And on HSN no less.
Some background info…
As an avid reader and collector of Heavy Metal Magazine for many, many, many centuries it’s hard not to run into Bettie Page a time or two. Olivia de Berardinis appeared in at least 26 issues, maybe 27, don’t quote me, of the magazine. Olivia and Bettie Page go hand in hand whenever I think of pin up girl fantasy art.
Obviously Bettie very much reminds me of Dita Von Teese. Although Dita always seemed even more glamorous to me! She’s such an icon, so glamorous, so beautiful, so very vintage!
I’m telling you all this because, honestly, I have very high expectations for Dita so when I heard she had a range of fragrances I expected FIREWORKS! I’m talking amazing packaging, super high prices, etc…etc…
Tyra Banks has her own makeup line that launched earlier this Fall. She’s quoted in InStyle saying, “I don’t believe in outrageously-expensive beauty products,” and credits a $2 jar of Vaseline as her beauty binge.
Girl, hold up.
The thing about Tyra is she’s always been fairly down to earth. And far be it for me to preach anything about pricing as I’m typically not one for ranting a price so long as the product, makeup, skincare, tech, WHATEVER…has quality backing it. But I was shocked that Instyle also stated, “We love how everything is under $100 and how the 5 Piece TYover Kit was $75.
