Sex still sells!

Hi Brit,

Remember that old advertising slogan, sex sells?  Well, it appears that it’s still true, and being put to use with some famous faces included.  This first exposure is of Keira Knightley, who you probably recall from one of my favorite movies, Pirates of the Caribbean.  As you can tell from her hat, she’s British, so I opened with her in your honor.


There’s also a bit of gossip floating around s to whether her hat size was enhanced by computer trickery.  So here’s another picture for comparison purposes.  Personally, I see no reason that artificial expansion is needed.


Britney Spears is back in fine form if the results of her rather strange photo shoot for Allure magazine is anything to go by.  The long locks are, by the way, a wig.


Jane magazine went for a sporty look and talked Serena Williams into this artistic shot.  It’s a shame her sister wasn’t included.


This is Courtney Love in an interview and photo spread from Harpers Bazaar.  She’s still too skinny, but she’s looking pretty good for her age.


Speaking of aging well, this is Mary Louise Parker, giving it her all to advertise her hit show, Weeds.  At least, it’s said to be a hit, however, since I haven’t seen it yet, or heard about it until yesterday, I can’t swear that’s true.  Never the less, at 42 she’s either holding up quite nicely or I’m to distracted by the snake to notice the imperfections.  That is a real snake, which the actress mentioned was not her first choice of props.  You have to wonder if that particular reptile is still cold blooded?

    Well, I see they are all wearing their summer outfits in these pics. Nice. Happily, if my book ever sells, I won’t be doing layouts like these. Give me a nice blue blazer and silk shirt – that’s the writerly way. ;)

    Hi WC,

    When you schedule a book signing in Memphis don’t forget to tell me. Speaking of which, how goes the agent hunt?

    You know – I think it was the Serena Williams one I found most disturbing! Just doesn’t seem right for a sports star to be strutting her stuff nekkid in front of a camera? And flowers for her bum? I mean – REALLY!

    Hi guys – thanks for the laugh :) Just loved the rules article Brit – even had the hubby chuckling! You have to wonder just why they felt the need to pass the blindfold rule in the first place?

    Hi Jayne,

    I concur with the Brit. Serena, by the way, mentions in the article that being a locker room girl for much of her life, she has almost no inhibition against being seen sans clothing. Which makes me think we should all play more sports.
