Ellen Degeneres Just Rocked the Fashion World

9 years ago

Sure it's only Cover Girl and their makeup is shite. But still, it's a major fashion flip - they took someone mature, with a real brain, with real unique style and beauty and made her a COVER GIRL?

I'm thrilled- I'm delighted.

I seriously almost CRIED I was so touched.

What does it really mean when they choose someone not 19 years old, not beach blonde Hottie McHot to represent? It means that Cover Girl got a clue that the world is changing. That we no longer buy into the Abercrombie and Fitch stereotype of beauty (don't get me started on those jacks). It means so many things about the world - it's bigger than them choosing Queen Latifah because let's face it, using "larger" women to model this or that has become a bit of a fashion. They chose Ellen, who can be as plain and down to earth as anyone......yet she's just as lovely as can be.

I think it's ironic and fascinating that, in my opinion, Ellen Degeneres just married one of the most beautiful women in the world, and now SHE is going to be the new CoverGirl.
The world is changing in a good way. Small things like this can be the beginning of tidal waves that shift the entire way cultures think.

Good For You Ellen.

Now don't wear their foundation - It'll Give You Zits.
