Beauty Icon of the Month: Darling Drew
Who could forget Drew's unforgettable performance as adorable 6 year-old "Gertie" in the classic movie E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial? I was fascinated with Drew Barrymore at a young age and I remember being thirteen plastering my room with black and white Guess ads of her. I even sketched a picture of her which I still have today (I certainly did NOT do her justice)! I read her autobiography Little Girl Lost and was intrigued by the famed life she lived having gone to rehab by the time she was thirteen. Despite her troubled past, she was able to snag movie role after movie role and soon became one of the top paid actresses in Hollywood.
To add to her list of accomplishments, Drew will soon be the new spokesperson for Cover Girl Cosmetics! I've always adored her carefree wavy locks, laid-back sense of style, her sparkling personality, and her natural beauty. Nowadays, she's sporting sleeker hair, wearing sophisticated and form-fitting clothes to show off her slimmer bod, and her make-up is looking more gorgeous than I've ever seen her (Fabrizio who??). Drew is a beauty chameleon and it's no wonder she's the new face for Cover Girl. She ain't just a pretty face - she's got brains too. Drew will be co-creator of the ads which means she will be consulted on the graphics, lighting, concept and how the photo will be cropped. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait until 2008 to see the Cover Girl ads. Boo! With her romantic comedy's, undeniable fashion sense, and infectious smile you just can't help but want more of Drew!
