I should rename this blog “Kate Winslet Is Awesome” because I never miss an opportunity to point out that she is awesome. The latest is that she has refused to be airbrushed in her new ads for Lancôme.
[She] only accepted the modelling gig if the company promised not to airbrush her for the poster campaign. Anna Winslet, Kate’s older sister, told this week’s First magazine: “Kate and I don’t think men like skinny, pointy, spikey women. She feels women should be allowed to be the natural shape they are without having to conform into some sort of image that is never going to be what their make-up is really about.” Not touching up an image to remove wrinkles or make a model look ‘perfect’ through lengthening legs or adding weight to boobs is virtually unheard of in the cosmetics industry.
The perfume is Lancôme’s Tresor. And no matter what it smells like, I will buy it. Gasoline, moldy cheese, porta potty, I don’t care. Who’s with me?
