Brooke Shields looks awful

I think she'd look a lot better if she finally plucked her eyebrows. She was stunning as a child and young woman and the thick brows worked but now she's gaunt and haggard looking and I think plucking would open her eyes up.

I don't mind her in this yellow but I think she's gotten a little too muscular and looks to be is taking too much HGH. That center part does her zero favors.

Yellow is definitely NOT her color.

As a young woman, her slightly masculine face mixed with the bloom of youth was beautiful. Now, she’s left with just the masculine face. Agree some eyebrow reshaping could help…unless she feels her brows are her trademark?

by Anonymousreply 6July 3, 2024 5:21 PM

Shields has always had surprisingly bad taste in clothing and personal styling. You'd think she'd know better, but apparently not.

That said, she seems like a good egg.

by Anonymousreply 7July 3, 2024 5:32 PM

She does feel like her eyebrows are her trademark, I think.

She could tweeze some of the hairs on the underside of her brows and STILL have thick brows.

Right now, it looks like her eyebrows are sitting right on top of her eyes.

I like the yellow dress on her. The Crocs? She can get away with it because she's tall.

R6 - you're exactly right - it's the masculine kind of face that was softened with youth and estrogen.

Same thing happened to Cindy Crawford - she seriously looks like she wants to beat someone's ass. She looks hard and not fresh or feminine looking. I think it's hilarious she does these skincare commercials - because she looks old and tough looking.

They were both absolutely stunning when they were younger - but that look has a shelf-life.

If she only had a softer chin length bob with highlights she could keep the caterpillars as they would be hidden . Yellow accentuates the extreme sun damaged chest !!! Just enlarge it and you will see .

My sister has the similar sundanage — not uncommon . She uses a flesh toned SPF which covers it nicely . She checked into a procedure she can’t afford which Brooke can — fraxil

I would be surprised she had a stylist

by Anonymousreply 31July 4, 2024 12:43 AM

I actually read one of her books, the one she tried to write about her mother. Jesus what a slog. She is seriously neurotic and irritating, as well in need of an editor. It's all about her and how her mother wrecked her life by drinking. No one else matters in Brookeland.

She was very beautiful. She had a perfect '80s look with the big, full hair and bushy eyebrows - perfect figure for that time, as well.

Considering everything she's been through, she came out pretty good, I'd say. She seems like a kind and considerate person, not full of herself.

Child surfing the other night I came across this Brooke Shields documentary on Hulu and really enjoyed it. It dives into her life and also talks a lot about the era of feminism and how it impacted the sexualization of child models, something we still see today. It's definitely not a hagiography. Definitely worth a watch if you're interested in her story and these issues.

I once stood behind Brooke Shields in line to get into a party for Madonna's birthday that was being thrown by Donatella Versace. Yes, I used to be fabulous. She was in very high heels and literally towered over me—I'm 5'10. She almost looks like she has one of those genetic conditions with an extra X or something like that. Her very tall stature and mannish, striking physique give her an Athena-like, goddess vibe, certainly not Aphrodite. This huge goddess with broad shoulders looks every bit the woman she is—she doesn't resemble a trans person. Her features are just so grand; maybe that's why she photographed so well and became one of the most successful and iconic models of all time. Anyway, about the party—Madonna's a midget. Donatella looks worse in person, but it was a fun party.

I once shared a gym locker room with her. She’s very tall and big. Not fat just a big boned person as we used to say. I’m surprised she made it as a model because they’re usually so skinny. She seemed friendly and nice, The other surprise for me was Lauren Hutton, short and lackingin presence for a model. I guess she photographed like a superstar.

Lauren Hutton is 5'7". Not short. Maybe short in comparison to Sasquatch Shields.

I read Brooke's book mentioned upthread and liked it a lot. It's an excellent chronicle of life in NYC in the 70s. Her mom adjure, Teri was a major alcoholic who never got the treatment she needed. Brooke writes about a failed intervention that took place before the word was so commonly used. she wrote another book about postpartum that I did not read, but, to her credit, she writes her own books without the help of a ghost writer. She took time out from her peak years in the spotlight to go to Princeton. Brooke is no dummy. and imo that's why she's still among us. And she never gave up on NYC; she lives in the West Village.

She’s still a very striking woman but she desperately needs a new hairstyle. Her hair looks stringy and thinning. A long bob with angles and a side swept bang would add a lot of fullness and volume to her hair and soften her facial features.

Her daughters are gorgeous.

Brooke's an icon and is still beautiful. In her book, you have to feel sorry for her childhood because not only was she forced to be mom to her own mom but the breadwinner as well. I think the book is good for people who may have grown up with an alcoholic in the family to see she survived it, even if it came at a price.

Teri was more than a difficult person -- she couldn't even stay sober for her daughter's high school graduation. It's clear from the book that they have a love/hate relationship, and I think Brooke still carries those feelings around with her and that they impact her thought process and way of doing things. Toward the end of the book, you begin to realize Brooke is drinking herself. Family tradition.

Agree that Brooke's book about her life and mother was admirably restrained. Not a harsh word about anyone. The closest she came was in her description of Susan Sarandon during the filming of Pretty Baby. Even there Brooke was kind.
