As admitted consumers of popular culture, we’re not going to pretend that we’re not fascinated by Elisabetta Canalis, the Italian model/actress turned George Clooney love interest. All paparazzi shots of her are now of interest to us, especially this one from last night’s premiere of Fantastic Mr. Fox at The Times BFI London Film Festival. Canalis looked gorgeous with her auburn highlights, bare shoulders, bronzed skin, cheek contouring, and subtle smoky eye—and just like Cindy Crawford, as it turns out, who also happened to be walking the same red carpet in the same beauty look. Can you see the resemblance, or is it just us?
Recent blogosphere buzz has models shaking in their over-the-knee boots: Japanese engineers at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology unveiled the HRP-4C humanoid robot this week in Tokyo, a robotic model that made her runway debut at the start of Japan fashion week on Monday. The five-foot, two-inch fembot weighs in at a not entirely unhealthy 95 pounds, with the eyes, face, and hair of an anime cartoon character. Real flesh-and-blood catwalkers shouldn’t start looking for a new day job quite yet, though. The robot’s creators say that despite battery-powered motors in her body and face, HRP-4C can only imitate the expressions and body language of a supermodel to a point: Getting Cindy’s sashay or Naomi’s pose-and-stare is at least another 20 to 30 years in the making.
As the supers return to magazines and billboards en masse, fashion’s interest in iconic catwalkers from the last two decades is pretty all-encompassing at the moment—and it’s likely what landed 40-year-old Cindy Crawford in Paris Vogue‘s November issue. Everyone is clamoring over Cindy’s still, um, super body (yes, she looks ridiculously good; it’s not up for debate), but we’re more interested in that fuchsia lip color, spotted in its muted incarnation at Marc by Marc Jacobs for Fall and in its full vivid glory for Spring at Hussein Chalayan. Based on product previews and event launches, we guessed that Ms. Crawford was wearing one of YSL’s new lip colors, and upon reading the story’s credits, our suspicions were confirmed: YSL Rouge Volupté in Rose Culte, courtesy of makeup artist Jeanine Lobell. Thus, all pressing questions were answered: Does Cindy still have it? Yes. Is our ability to identify lipstick out of the tube up to snuff? Indeed it is.
