I’m not much into fashion, but I ran into this documentary called About Face: The Supermodel, Then and Now, which featured (besides Isabella Rossellini and Christy Turlington) Carmen Dell’Orefice. I was immediately struck by the shape of her face, the lines that form when she’s posing.

Some photo credits go to: Urko Suaya for Rouge.

I’m finally done with the latest version of Anna Karenina, which I’m sorry to say didn’t enjoy much. I generally have a love/hate relationship with Keira, but I just couldn’t stand Aaron Taylor. Mind you, I didn’t like him in Kick-Ass either, and it was meh on Albert Nobbs. During the whole movie, I kept thinking how Olivia Williams would’ve been as Anna Karenina.

Especially considering this photo, and how awesome that last scene could have been.

I can’t exactly remember when was the first time I listened to Faith Hill (unlike my Dixie Chicks story), but I’m certain it was because of Breathe. I bought the album on that same trip, and I remember being incredibly excited for the Grammy that year when Faith performed the song and I was in L.A. at a mere distance from the Staple Center.

Stalkery (and voyeuristic) feelings aside. I just really REALLY loved the song and the music video was sooooooooooooooooooo simple but it was just- you know -good to look at. There’s just a few music videos where I would allow just looking at beautiful people, and this one is one of them. The other one that comes immediately to mind is Sinéad O’Connor’s Nothing Compares 2 U [MV].

Now it seems most music videos aim for the shock factor, and I really can’t blame them. We’ve got the attention span of a goldfish.

Also, Faith Hill’s got a new album coming out this year!!! After the release of Fireflies in 2005, I’ve been deprived of much country music.

I’ve been on a Chulpan Khamatova movie hunt for the past week or two. xD

I had been trying to watch her filmography since… Goodbye Lenin! in 2004, but I never got to it. I, then, chose to watch Luna Papa. I realized I couldn’t call myself a fan if I hadn’t watch more of her movies, so I went finally hunting. I’ve already seen The Land of the Deaf, 72 Meters, Doctor Zhivago, The Sword Bearer, and Domovoy.

I also got The Dancer’s Time (but it’s got no subtitles), Tuvalu is on its way, and I’ve got Paper Soldier ready to go.

I hope that in a few months I have enough information to write a YAM Loves post about her :) Coz her face is perfection personified and from the little information I was able to find, she’s also a fascinating person.

Look at that flawless face.
