Elle + Parenthood

When my Elle magazine arrived in my mailbox this month I was excited to read it because it featured one of my low brow favorites...TV!  I was excited to see the ladies from my favorite show Parenthood featured in one of the pictorials.  So I thought maybe we should discuss the importance of what is going on in this photo.

1.  Don't take this the wrong way but doesn't lovely Lauren Graham look just a wee bit too photoshopped?  One of the best things about her is she looks real, thin and gorgeous but real. Here she looks almost lollipop headish.
2.  I've come around to really liking Erika Christenson's character Julia but Monica Potter's Christina is still super annoying in my book. I can't decide if it's Monica or Christina? 
3.  The ladies are all wearing the same shade of lipstick.  It's Chanel Coco Rouge in Gabrielle. Note to self, get this shade pronto!

So do you guys watch?  If not try it I think you'll like it.  Now on to something else about this month's Elle, please no more Katie Holmes.  Sorry, but I think she's the world's worst cover girl.  She seems to worm her way into everything and I can't figure why that happens.

I love that show! But yes, that photo is VERY photo shopped.

I love them all but I do wish Christina would chill out. just a bit.

Parenthood is one of my favorite shows...love it! I like Lauren Graham's character (Sarah) the best, but I'm probably biased since I was a huge Gilmore Girls fan.

I think Katie makes in on the cover of magazines because 1) she is married to Tom Cruise and 2) she probably pays someone a lot of money to get her those gigs. She usually looks like a girl trying to act grown up. I just never seems to work quite right.

I like that show too, and I also find Christina super annoying. Lauren Graham plays such a great mom (both on here and in Gilmore Girls) and I'm amazed that she isn't one in real life. :)

Have a great weekend!

I don't know if I mind Katie Holmes but I've been really tired of the push by fashion editors to make her into some sort of style icon. She's a pretty woman but dressing matronly does not a style icon make.

(off to check out the SNL video. . . )

I went and purchased Chanel Gabrielle after reading your post. I wore it today and received TONS of compliments. It's a great red. I have very fair skin and was able to pull it off. As a bonus - it glides on like a dream and doesn't flake off or dry my lips like some other reds I've tried. Thanks for the tip!
