Li’l Jolie is turning into Plus-Sized Jolie; the metabolism which served me so well in my early twenties is sputtering out, aided by a steady comfort diet of pasta and mucho less exercise then I normally get. (It’s winter! It’s cold! What do you want from me?) Jolie has never been the skinniest filly in the stable, but what she lacked in svelteness, she more than made up for in good hair and smokey eyes. Alas, I’m hoping that viewpoint will carry me through the next few months, as I try to right myself–please do cut me a little slack, men of Los Angeles; I’ve just been through a major life trauma–and make the most of this wonderful, healthy body that I do so appreciate. (Not looking to be anorexic, just want to be truly healthy!)
Here’s the latest photo of moi, gorgeously tressed courtesy of the divine Neil Weisberg and Amanda George, co-owners of Neil George Salon. I saw them this weekend and was absolutely blown away. You’ll know them from, oh, every starlet in Hollywood (Reese Witherspoon, Ashley Olsen, Lindsay Lohan, Christina Applegate, Cameron Diaz…the list goes on), and let me tell you, a cut and color with them is worth every second, and every dime. Check out their brand-new, buzzed about, color-friendly line here.
I will be returning to Neil George in precisely one month, on Saturday February 21st, for my book party at Fred Segal Studio in Santa Monica. LA-dwellers, it’s the day before the Oscars, at 2pm–cocktails, nibbles, a book signing, and makeup from Laura Mercier, Smashbox, Stila and Dianne Brill. Please mark your calendars, tell your friends, and come for an afternoon of fun!
