I'm Seeing Double

I have been spending too much time @ JAMD lately. I was going to make one of those "red carpet rendezvous" posts but for now, I'm seeing double.

Mo & LiLo @ Filth & Wisdom

For a split second flipping through thumbnail photos I thought these two were the same person. Crazier still: They're at the same event and it's an event for Madonna herself. Is this homage or is the pool of celebrity stylists dangerously under-populated these days? Now accepting job applications.

pointless trivia note: Lindsay Lohan was born two days after Madonna's third album True Blue hit record stores in 1986. Have you any doubt that Papa Don't Preach video, then in its first week on MTV, was playing at the exact moment Lindsay let out her first wail ?

<--- Another twin twosome at another event on the other coast the very next day. I wouldn't have thought to fuse them but they've done it for me. The two ultra thin long haired brunette forty-something kajillionaires with younger thirty-something husbands of lesser fame were attending an event at the Director's Guild in Los Angeles. Comparisons end there. One of them does not own an Idaho home filled with dolls or apply live leaches to her skin to keep herself looking fresh. (That we know of...)

\leaches are the scariest thing in the world. The closest thing to vampires I will ever encounter.

The kinky hair is like a bleached throwback to Ray of Light meets Carrie Bradshaw.

I have a feeling Madonna historians will remember this as her deconstruction phase. It's like all the organophilospohical softening she underwent through motherhood, children's books, and her more recent ambient fluff is being pulled away to reveal something much harder, tougher. Less glossy. There's something cold and manipulative about her current persona.

...granted, she's always been a dominatrix at heart.

I used to think of Courteney Cox as a more affordable version of Demi Moore. Pre-Friends, of course. When Courteney was fleshier.

i am beginning to loathe madonna and feel as years go by she is less relevant,why is her new cd and songs jump on the bandwagon stuff with former mouseketeer justin timberlake oh yeah he's real street!!! it is laughable.

Hmm. Courteney Cox looks better than she has at any time in the last 10 years? Maybe? Just me?

It's funny, there's a scene in 'Indecent Proposal' where Demi semi-tries on a black dress (which not-her-husband Robert Redford later buys for her -- scandalous!). She pulls her hair into a loose up-do, and I swear at that moment she looks EXACTLY like Courtney Cox.

But yeah, they both could use a little meat on their bones.
