On the subject of girl crushes

First there was Nigella. You’ve just got to love any woman who has such a way with words and who teaches you how to make sinfully decadent desserts, all the better to impress others with.

Then there was Lisa Eldridge. You’ve just got to love any woman who is so beautiful and lovely, and who teaches you how to look like the prettiest version of you, you can possibly be.

Now, there is Berenice Marlohe. There’s no point waxing lyrical about her exotic beauty; everyone has been there, done that since Skyfall came out.

Reasons to love her:

  • She’s a real woman, not a waif one has to eat only one apple a day to look like. She looks like she actually eats, and enjoys it.
  • She power owns the smoky eye look.
  • And she made it awesomesauce to be a brunette. “Gentlemen love blondes, but Bond loves brunettes,” she said. Now if that isn’t the best reason in the world to love being a brunette, I don’t know what is.

Suffice to say that my resolution for 2013 will be “Live glam, Bond girl glam.”

  1. Nigella, I fell in serious love with that woman when she unapologetically made chocolate pasta with a butterscotch sauce, as matter-of-factly as one would a spinach (green) pasta with a marinara. I liked her before, but that was just irresistible. :)))
