"Kate Winslet... looks so good wearing red lipstick that maybe all of us women will be wearing red lipstick tomorrow."

I said it last night, live-blogging the Golden Globes.

Today: "Madonna the dupli-Kate with her new transformation impersonating Winslet."

ADDED: I fool with red lipstick and Photo Booth:

She would look hot wearing sackcloth and ashes.

I hope the red lipstick thing doesn't catch on though, it rarely looks very good, IMO.

traditionalguy said...

Reminds me of an early Playboy popular picture of the nude Marylin Monroe. I was only looking at the red lipstick of course, and that's my story. Red lipstick is tres glamorous but can be a danger to white shirt collars. You can use it to mark your man for later identification.

Original George said...

Is it true that our Kate's celebrity makeup artist opted for a classic red lip and finished her look with Avon-brand Pro-to-Go Lipstick in Cherry Glisten?

SteveR said...

In the realm of "lipstick on a pig", Kate Winslet is beautiful, Madonna is not.

Bissage said...

I have it upon good authority that Ms. Winslet is not just another mouth in the lipstick vogue.

Ron said...

Althouse! Where's your red lipstick pic? C'mon, c'mon, vogue, baby! Start the fashion trend amongst lawprofs! And if you can get Instapundit to do it...

Jen Bradford said...

Well the style may be the same, but compare Madonna & Winslet's hands - yikes, Madge.

Tibore said...

Red lipstick was not in vogue until last night?

I feel so out of touch...

knox said...

Madonna wishes she looked like Kate Winslet!

Mark Daniels said...

Do hockey moms wear red lipstick? Or pigs? I can't remember.

But 50-plusers desperate to show that they're still relevant do ape younger stars. Remember when Bobby Darin grew his hair, trashed his tie, and played the guitar?

Darin emerged from that phase though. So, it probably won't be long now before Madonna joins Celine Dion in Vegas for a stunning rendition of 'Mack the Knife.' Somebody's got to pick up Wayne Newton's baton when he retires.

TitusTrueBlue said...

You guys are Madonna bashers.

I think there is some ageism going on in her and I don't like it one bit.

Madonna is 20 years older than Kate Winslet. She looks good for 50.
Madonna is the best. She thinks of everything first. Madonna rules. I love Madonna more than anything. When I went to her concert she yelled "fuck you faggots get off your pansy asses and clap for me"=the crowd went nuts.

Love her so much.

Mark Daniels said...

TTB:
Yeah, eloquence like that evokes my respect too.

Howard said...

In both cases the cuffs don't match the collar. Scary dark eyebrows with California Beach Blond hair is the female equal to a comb-over. No amount of red lipstick can fix that distraction.

ricpic said...

Did anyone catch the photo of Madonna exiting the Waverly Inn with a "mysterious" male companion? What a witch!

Lawgiver said...

When Mick Jagger was 50 all he had to do was point at the crowd and they would go nuts. But that was in 1979. Hey, do you think Madonna and Jagger ever had sex? What would that baby look like?

TitusMaterialGirl said...

I know everyone Madonna had sex with and she did not have sex with Mick Jaeger or any of the rolling stones.

She did do Basquiat though and that guy that freezes himself in ice cubes. I would of done Basquiat and I would do the guy that freezes himself in ice cubes. He's hot. David Blaine-that's it. Madonna would have her driver take her over to his house late at night for booty calls.

ricpic said...

David Blaine is hot?! Cottage cheese ass is no excuse for you to lower your standards that far, Titus.

ricpic said...

What would that baby look like?

The newborn Brad Pitt in Benjamin Button?

TitusMaterialGirl said...

Yes Ricpic David Blaine is hot. Us gays know hot and he is hot.

I don't know what cottage cheese ass even means. Is that some straight term?

And Madonna is hot. Don't tell me if she wanted to do any of you breeders you wouldn't jump at the chance. Give me a break. You would hump her in a straight second.

TitusMaterialGirl said...

Look at Madonna's legs? Her arms? Her tits? Her ass? Her face? She is fucking amazing. And if gays say it is true.

We gays decide who is hot and who is not.
We gays also decide what your women will be wearing.

Sure it starts in New York, Paris and Milan but eventually it filters down to Walmart and Target. It is a slow progression that eventually hits Main Street. About two seasons two late but it still hits Main Street.

ricpic said...

Her arms are hellacious. She's a wizened old bat who doesn't know it's time to get off the stage.

Pogo said...

"Don't tell me if she wanted to do any of you breeders you wouldn't jump at the chance. Give me a break. You would hump her in a straight second."

Maybe, but first I would demand an alcohol and bleach wipedown, an antibiotic and antiviral cocktail, and a pair of tongs.

Maybe it'd make a better Wii game.

SteveR said...

And I decide who I would "do" or not. Maybe twenty five years ago, but not now.

rhhardin said...

You'd think makeup would have been the first thing to go when feminism took over in the 70s.

Tarted up for who?

I don't think lipstick was on the evolutionary chart as an enabler of species preservation, so it's probably not even necessary.

It might be like the bear defense thing. You don't have to be able to outrun the bear, only to beat the guy who's with you.

Other women are the competition.

Some disarmament agreement was necessary and never pulled off.

I was pulling* hard for Brooke Burke for 2 long hours only come to find out she wasn't being nominated for anything. Talk about a letdown in the end!

Little known or understood inside deleted joke.

traditionalguy said...

When I see Madonna I get the same feeling I used get going thru the Snake House exhibit at the Zoo. But she is a facinating performer so long as the thick glass stays between me and her.

Mark O said...

Titus, you authority you, did she like it from Dennis Rodman?

knox said...

Yes Ricpic David Blaine is hot. Us gays know hot and he is hot.

He's a magician for god's sake.

Howard,

thank you. A man who notices the same incongruities the same thing that i do. Just bugs me that combnation.

And i just wonder -since everyone comments about the sex factor:

As a fifty year old woman, isn't the question NOT if a 30 year old man would do you, but if a 50 year old man still knows how to do you if you have grey hairs.

dannyboy said...

Don't tell me if she wanted to do any of you breeders you wouldn't jump at the chance. Give me a break. You would hump her in a straight second.

I'll pass. She's been banged more times than a bongo drum. You'd probably have to tie a board across your ass so you wouldn't fall in.

Pogo said...

Madonna will not go gentle into that good night, but will burn and rave at close of her day, and rage against the dying of the spotlight.


Madonna will soon be music's Norma Desmond in her own private Sunset Boulevard.

Some fires burn intensely and then die, while other fires burn small and steadily. Who's to say which is wiser?

blake said...

That's sad.

It's sad for a 50-year-old to ape a 30-year-old in matters of appearance.

It's sad for a trend setter to become a trend follower.

It's sad to never have enough, to always need to be front-and-center, to do anything to keep the attention of others.

commenter said...

course, as the chemistry and sun at the pool does a number on my bangs every year –they get the most stressed out, not sure why, compared to my other hair–

my eyebrows don't ever get so light as my summer bangs even when they are subjected to the same amount of sunlight and chlorine. My eye brows haven't turned grey yet, either like my hair. I have the most children among my siblings and the most grey hairs. None of my sisters have grey hair. I'll blame it on my kids.

course with men, they lose the hair on the top of their head and then the eyebrows can grow thicker. must be something with the protective nature of hair in certain areas of the body. The sweat rolls easier over a balding head so i guess the eyebrows have to catch more of it. When a woman's thyroid goes bad, she often loses eyebrow hair. If you nurture your thyroid somethimes your eyebrows get better. (persoanl experience, again)

Oh wait, this is a sexy post not a medical post. sorry for the divergence. Some of these posts are like a tabloid that's okay and even encouraging for intelligent people to read.

BTW, who is kate winslow? and why should i store that in the area above and behind my eyebrows

Re updated photo:
Make it your avatar! I like the stylized ones best.

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

Maybe it'd make a better Wii game.

Pogo, that was beautiful. I wonder if it will be a first person shooter.

Palladian said...

How did Madonna get hold of Margaret Hamilton's hands?

Wait, scratch that, Margaret Hamilton's hands don't look nearly that bad.

Ron said...

Yow! That pic looks like Ghost Althouse or X-Men Althouse!

Michael H said...

Updated photo - Sweet! And hot! Sweet and hot, the new Althouse flavor.

Regarding Madonna - "Don't tell me if she wanted to do any of you breeders you wouldn't jump at the chance. Give me a break. You would hump her in a straight second."

I look at Madonna and I think "petrie dish". Run away.

Trooper York said...

Oh cool, you posted a clip from Blade Runner.

lewsar said...

bah, trooper beat me to it.

Michael H said...

A friend (okay, a guy at the bar I stopped at on the way home) asked who I'd rather do: Madonna or Pamela Anderson.

I'll stipulate that this is a fantasy question in that the only doing I would ever be involved with is Mrs. Michael H, who, frankly, is far more entertaining than either Madge or Pam.

Anyhow, which one?

After some careful analysis I decided: neither. The yuck factor is too high. Bleah.

Now, and of course you'll want to speculate about my age a bit, Helen Mirren would be an interesting fantasy.

I'm a sucker for a good set of brains.

traditionalguy said...

Prof: your colors are definitely black and red. But whatever you wear, thanks for sharing your Brains and your teacher's touch.

Joan said...

I'm a sucker for a good set of brains

Yeah, because we all know Helen's got 'em.

I should not be unhappy to look like Helen Mirren when I'm 63. I'd rather be her than either Kate or Madge.

Michael H said...

Joan - Thanks for adding gasoline to the Mirren fantasy fire!

MH

Darcy said...

Bless you, Michael H. I really admire Helen Mirren's talent and looks. And I second Joan's comment. I would love to look like her at 63.

"Don't tell me if she wanted to do any of you breeders you wouldn't jump at the chance. Give me a break. You would hump her in a straight second."

Eeewwww, gross!!! Plus I'd actually have to listen to her? No friggin' way. Not a chance. Didn't you see "Truth Or Dare"? Madonna's a total bitch.

Nice photo, Ann. Haunting, smart, alluring, all that.
