Tom Cruise on W - I'll Take What He's Having

Have you seen the new issue of W Magazine with Tom Cruise on the cover?
How can it be that the middle aged Cruise looks like he's 18 years old in the cover photo
if not younger?
Surgery? Photoshop? Top Secret beauty products?
I want to know.
Whatever his beauty routine is, I want to get in on it.

And, on the topic of age
Slate has yet another article on pre-teen runway models.
When Did High Fashion Models Get So Young

In recent years, the debate over underage fashion models has reached a fever pitch. Ondria Hardin starred in a sultry Prada ad at 13. An Australian modeling agency recently announced that it wanted 13-year-olds because 16-year-olds were “too old.”
when did 16 year old girls become too old to model?

Imagine Doutzen Kroes being too old...or too big...for Prada.
“I probably fit a sample size once, when I was 11 or 12,” the Dutch model Doutzen Kroes has said, explaining why she left high fashion to work for brands like Victoria’s Secret. Who but an undeveloped teen could fit a skirt with a 33-inch hip?
who indeed?

But read the article all the way to the last paragraph.
You will be amazed to read the justification for why t'ween models are in demand.
Digg this

Even though Tom Cruise is a good actor there is just something about him... I don't know what it is... trying too hard...whatever it is I have never been a fan. As for 13 year old models, that's ridiculous.

I think what Tom's having is a Hella Photoshop. :-)

Dash, he's definitely trying a little too hard...but his skin looks great!

Pseu, if only I could photoshop my life!

It looks like when they did the photo work they added eyeliner, no? Creepy. Very, very creepy.

I'm so glad you wrote about the Slate article, I read that last night and couldn't believe it.

It's so good to be reading you again!
