Jennifer Connelly named the face of Shiseido (AGAIN) after first appearing in their ads 25 years ago!

Jennifer Connelly has been signed as the first global spokesperson for Shiseido – but this isn’t her first time representing the brand.

“I’ve had a long relationship with Shiseido – I worked with them in the Eighties on an ad campaign, and have been using their products ever since,” the Academy Award-winning actress told WWD. “It’s nice to reconnect with them after so many years.”

Here’s more from the press release!

As Shiseido Co., Ltd. celebrates its 140th anniversary, the company announced that it has signed Academy Award-winning actress, Jennifer Connelly, who previously represented the company in Asia. Connelly will be the namesake brand’s global spokesperson and face of its highly acclaimed premium skincare line Future Solution LX. Connelly’s first advertising campaign as global spokesperson will debut this fall.

“I am honored to be working with Shiseido again and to be representing the Future Solution LX line globally,” said Jennifer Connelly. “Like Shiseido, I believe it is important to prepare now for our future well being. I look forward to sharing my journey with Future Solution LX with women worldwide.”

While this marks the first time the brand will be working with a global spokesperson, this will not be the first time Shiseido has worked with the classic beauty; more than two decades ago, Connelly appeared in an advertising campaign for a Shiseido makeup brand that was distributed in Japan.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jennifer back to our family as we celebrate our 140th anniversary,” stated Hiroshi Maruyama, General Manager of the International Marketing Department at Shiseido Co., Ltd. “Jennifer’s genuine personality, commitment to her family and approach to living a beautiful life embodies the core values of our company, and match those of the Shiseido customer. We believe that she portrays the essence of the Future Solution LX line perfectly and that her inner and outer beauty will inspire our customers.”

This spring, Connelly is appearing in her latest feature film “Virginia.” She has also starred in acclaimed movies including, “A Beautiful Mind,” for which she won an Oscar and Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress, “Reservation Road”, “Blood Diamond”, “Requiem for a Dream” and “The House of Sand and Fog.”

Love her, she’s so beautiful! Perfect for this line!

Valentine’s Day- DIY Beauty Scrubs, Masks and Baths.

Strawberry Scrub
To get your skin in tip top shape for the big day, what could be better than a homemade strawberry face and body scrub.
Ingredients:
2 pureed strawberries

Raspberry honey face mask
The red raspberries contain loads of vitamin C which is essential for maintaining healthy clear glowing wrinkle free skin. The honey helps moisturize your skin because it contains natural moisturizers in it, and it helps fight acne and prevent it because it contains natural antibodies in it that kill the germs that cause the acne in the first place. The rolled oats help absorb unwanted oils and impurities from the skin while also lightly exfoliating it. These are the reasons why this is a beneficial facial mask for combination skin types.

Jennifer Aniston graces the March cover of InStyle. Opens up about Brad, Justin and what makes her feel old!

Jennifer Aniston graces the March cover of InStyle Magazine. She looks gorgeous as ever (she just gets more and more beautiful as she gets older!). She’s currently promoting her new movie, ‘Wanderlust’, which comes out soon. This is the comedy where she fell in love with her current boyfriend, Justin Theroux.  The two have been dating ever since, and seem to be doing really well.

Of course the interviewer brought up Brad Pitt….again. I mean why not drudge up the past some, what, 7 years later? Here are some clips from the interview via Celebitchy:

Uncool Bermuda Triangle Misconceptions: “Which one? There are so many. I would say the triangle with my ex-husband – and that there’s a feud there. It’s constant. It’s a story headline that won’t go away, but it’s a money thing – [people make money off] a story that has nothing to do with reality.”

Her previous relationships sucked: “Having experienced everything you don’t want in a partner over time, it starts to narrow down what you actually do want. As I get older, I realize what qualities are important in love and what suits me. And what I won’t settle for.”

On her culinary skills: “I’d love to say I’m an accomplished cook, but I don’t have any signature dishes. I’m good at breakfast – I make great eggs. My father gave me a little recipe. It’s all in the seasoning. But it’s a Greek secret. I won’t give it away!”

On her favorite thing about boyfriend Justin Theroux’s style: “First of all, he has great style – it’s very specific, and it has been his style forever. Has it influenced mine? No, but I know people say it has.’Oh, look, you’re dressing alike.’ And I think, no I’m not. I’ve had this jacket for three years!”

On what career she’d pick if she had to change: “Directing. I was very proud of producing and directing for the beautiful project ‘Five.’ Or I’d love to be a dermatologist. I’d be so obsessive about it. I’m fascinated by skin, products, and lasers. I go on the Internet and read all about it. I call it ‘laser porn.’”

On the biggest risk she’s taken in life: “I’m not sure. Just walking out of the house can be a risk!”

Feeling old: “You know what makes me feel old? When I see girls who are 20-something, or the new crop of actresses, and think, Aren’t we kind of the same age?” the 43-year-old says. “I don’t feel my age. I feel young every day.”

She looks beautiful in these pictures. Flawless!
