Cannes during the Film Festival, the Grand Prix in Monaco and the World Music Awards the Cote D´Azur become one of the most prestigious and glamorous coasts in the world. Lots of movie stars, wannabes and fans get together to celebrate the stars and their work.
But what you see on TV and what you read in the tabloids is mostly a very airbrushed version of what was really going down in Cannes. Usually nobody talks about the fact that hundreds of girls arrive in Cannes just days before the Festival starts, to work as prostitutes. Lots of stress and adrenaline, mixed with the ego to have the youngest hottest girl on your side makes some men pay up to 25.000 Euros a night for some “company”.
Another thing people hardly talk about are the little beauty tricks of the stars on the red carpet. I noticed while talking to Pamela Anderson and John Travolta on the red carpet that both of them are wearing full wigs. John Travolta is partly bold but feels the need to still give the impression that he has a full head of hair.
I don´t really know him but he comes of as a nice guy and he has been through a lot (he lost his son) and is over 60 now, so nobody would mind him not having a full set of hair. I am not sure if it is him or if it is his publicist who makes him wear these ridiculous wigs. Sometimes it isn´t even a wig but it looks like somebody painted the hair on his head with a black marker.
And didn´t we all like when Pamela Anderson finally managed to get rid of her all time blond beach girl image, took out her implants out and grew up to be a good looking women in her 40s?! Well, I met her yesterday and for some reason she felt it was time to go back to the stupid blond barbie image.
She was wearing a cheap hair piece trying to turn back time and to become the lifeguard in Baywatch again. She utterly failed. She looked like an old copy of herself with less tits and plastic hair. But when we spoke she was really nice and surprisingly natural. Its not up to us but in my opinion she looks much better with her own hair and without the “stupid blond” image.
I am not saying anything against little beauty tricks. Sometimes a good hair piece is essential to give you the glam look for an official event, sometimes you want to ad a little volume to better fill out your dress or wear some shape wear to enhance/surpress your curves in the right places.
Victoria Silvstedt for example wears her extensions well. She is very tall and can therefore get away with a little more hair than normal and she usually takes very well care of her hair to make sure the difference between real and fake isn´t too visible. She also wears high quality extensions which always blend in much better than bad quality hair or even fakes.
We are probably all a little fake. Tanned, bleached teeth, blond hair and what not but there is nothing wrong with it! Just try and do it right. Make an effort. Don´t think people are stupid or ignorant and won´t notice you try to trick them. If the little tricks are done well they can boost your confidence and leave the viewers impressed.
