From drug using child star to resident Hollywood wild girl to production company CEO – Mrs. Drew Barrymore. Without a doubt, my favorite Hollywood starlet. She’s gone through many different looks and styles throughout her career, all of them amazing to see. These days she has this grown up, earthy California girl thing going on that just kills me. (Click through the images for the full experience.)
She’s also about to celebrate her 32nd birthday, and yep she’s single. Happy birthday Drew!
The last two images of Uma Thurman are probably two of the most beautiful I’ve ever found. An image search on Uma will bring up various pictures, most of which aren’t taken when she’s at her best. I don’t have any interest in seeing Ms. Thurman’s thong while she’s bent over, or while she’s smoking topless on a beach. She’s an incredibly beautiful woman and I prefer to see her at her best. The last image above is rare and hard to find. I considering one of the best Thurman portraits ever taken. Wish I new where it came from.
I wish I could track down the original photographer and model. Amazing.
Thanks to a reader the model is Jessica Stam. I did a little digging and found the entire spread on a chinese web site, and thanks to Google’s excellent translation tools we have this excellent review of the spread:
This is a unusual doll face. amazing! amazing!! passion will send you a lot of homework. Perturbation so cunning and pure magic through the eyes, nose and mischievous Alice Jiao lips, and there is the head of fiery red hair. a memorable one in the face. It also has nostalgic atmosphere, the atmosphere and the girls still feeling. How cold back, which she is very special. Editorials dazzling photographs of her beautiful people, I really do not know that thanks to the skills and acumen superb photographer. Stam or that unique potential, it is possible to have the perfect combination of the two. Let us hold those who would have watched the Meitu.
I also managed to dig up her bio on Wikipedia:
Jessica Stam (born April 23, 1986 in Kincardine, Ontario), also known simply as Stam, is a Canadian supermodel.
Stam was discovered in a local Tim Hortons coffee shop by Michèle Miller, an agent at the International Model Management agency in Barrie, Ontario, who found Stam on the way back from Paramount Canada’s Wonderland, a theme park just outside Toronto. Her career was set off when she appeared on the cover of German Vogue and she has appeared in advertisements for Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui, Vera Wang, Atsuro Tayama, Cerruti Jeans, Valentino, Miu Miu, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Holt Renfrew, BCBG , and Banila B. After she dyed her hair blonde on a whim during the summer, she was cast for 54 shows.
The photographer and spread are still unknown.
I wish Steve had provided some context – it’s a great image. It looks like it was taken by someone leaning out a car window while driving down a highway.
I totally respect actresses and actors who search out roles that challenge them, especially when the roles they choose don’t paint them in the most attractive colors. I loved Kate Winslett in Titanic, and I loved her even more in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind with Jim Carry. Mrs. Winslett is part of a rare breed of the hollywood elite who break the trend of following the status quo. Drew Barrymore and Uma Therman come to mind as well. Too sexy.
I find it interesting that I often see similarities in the features of women I am most attracted too. I’m not talking about the features we tend to lust after – I’m talking about the features of the women we perceive as being truly beautiful. I wonder what it is that defines what we find attractive and how we manage to subconsciously filter these features out?
