Elizabeth Hurley is making headlines—and no, not because of her hot acting career (Ha ha ha! Right.). No, Liz’s fame has had a renaissance because she is the only living “celebrity” apparently willing to front Blackglama’s old “What Becomes a Legend Most” ad campaign. (We have another take on Blackglama’s ad, but that’s another story.)
But wait—“Legend”? Who, exactly, is a legend here? Seriously—in the days when people thought fur coats came from animals who died in their sleep on fluffy pillows, Blackglama got major starlets like Catherine Deneuve, Judy Garland, and Elizabeth Taylor to pose for their ads. But that was eons ago, and now Blackglama has to resort to using a 41-year-old actress whose last successful movie was almost 10 years ago. As PETA Europe’s own Robbie LeBlanc said of Liz’s new gig, “Her wardrobe is now as dead as her film career.”
This news, of course, follows stories of stylists having to lie to (*cough* successful *cough*) fur-free actresses about the faux-ness of their fur. Fur is dead, ladies and gentlemen. Anyone who tells you otherwise is getting paid to do it.
I guess those DVDs of Serving Sara just don’t pay the mortgage.
