    Ha! The Manolo, he makes the Giabella snort into her iced latte.

  2. Tres Francaise Says:

    La Tres Francaise thinks also of the forehead of the Cate Blanchett in ‘Elizabeth’……..

  3. Gina Says:

    NK looks more like a Praying Mantis to me.

  4. The Scarlett Says:

    The Scarlett saw NK on the Letterman last night. Ayyyyyy! The Scarlett kept finding herself muttering, “She’s nearly life-like” whenever the animatronic device would turn to the Dave and imitate way humans laugh.

    BTW, The Arnolfini Wedding is one of The Scarlett’s all time favorite paintings!

  5. Kim Says:

    Botox + Bleach Blonde = hair loss. Also, when your hair is the same color as your skin, it’s hard to tell which is which. Bless her heart.

  6. C.S. Froning Says:

    Why did she go blonde? It doesn’t work for her coloring, and she was a gorgeous redhead.

    “the Nicole Kidman, she is getting the Van Eyck chrome dome”

    Looks like she’s getting anorexia, too.

    Poor Nicole.

  8. AmyS Says:

  9. dimestore lipstick Says:

    At least a five-head. Possibly more.

  10. tia nieve Says:

    The Tia Nieve finds the shoes of the Van Eyck intriguing:

    The Tia adores the 15th century version of the red slides of the Dr. Scholls (second link).

  11. tia nieve Says:

    The Tia Nieve adores the Van Eyck paintings, but when the Tia sees the Nicole, she is reminded of the Nosferatu:

  12. jenn Says:

    haha. poor nicole. yes, the jenn, she thinks the nicole may be still somewhat not over the conspiracy that is the tom and has resorted to food restraint and botox hedonism but the jenn, she still adores the nicole. because the jenn, sometimes she wishes she had only a few inches of the nicole’s height and a few sacks of her money.

  13. Victoria O Says:

    Funny, I made the same observation upon viewing a picture of NK earlier this morning.

  14. Mme Dogma Says:

    Perhaps she could snack on some of those acorns she is wearing on her sinewy neck.

  15. Maggi Says:

    In response to tia nieve: that first picture you linked isn’t of shoes, it’s of pattens. When you wore your lovely court slippers and needed to leave the lovely court, you slipped your pattens on over your shoes to protect them. Not sure about the red ‘slides’; they might just be super-fancy pattens.

  16. pdotfu Says:

    Poor Nicole, yes. Exteme thiness does not replace youth. She was a lovely girl.

  17. NuggetMaven Says:

    My forehead hurts looking at that… she looks like she’s pulled her hair too tight.

  18. Cat Says:

    The Cat, she has the very large forehead like that of the Nicole, but she has the good sense to wear the bangs with which to cover it up.

  19. LouLou Says:

    I think Nicole Kidman’s large forehead is attractive. I know that most people believe it isn’t attractive on a woman, but surprisingly, this blog, nor anyone else for that matter, is the authority on what is or isn’t attractive.

    Attraction is very subjective, and the writer of this website may not have a large forehead of which to speak, however you can bet your sweet bippy that they have countless imperfections.

    Also, I would like to remind you, dear author, that imperfections of character are far more unattractive and pronounced than physical ones. Fortunately for you, mirrors only show physical imperfections…
