She’s an odd choice for Lancome. But, she COULD use some sprucing-up. So, maybe this is a good thing for her.

nope. she’s getting old. she needs to represent makeup for older skin like sisleya or la mer. but i’m sure photo shop can work out the flaws.

I think Julia is an excellent choice! I miss seeing her in films though!

She’s not exactly what I would pick for Lancome. How about an actual MODEL – like Paulina Porizkova or Elle McPherson, someone who is in their 40’s, is still beautiful and we can relate to for the fact that their not a celebrity or in their 20’s selling face creams to those who are over 35. Most of Lancome’s cusotmers are women over 35 and why not choose Paulina, who was rudely booted from Estee Lauder for Elizabeth Hurley, who brought nothing to that campaign from the get go.

I think she is a great actress…but NOT a spokesmodel…sorry. There are so many better choices out there.

Not a good choice! Lancome represents women who are sophisticated and glamorous. Julia Roberts is a devout natural hippy-type! I agree with the comment above in that a model like Paulina Porizkova, Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford would be so much better! I don’t get the fascination with actresses representing all the makeup lines …

Why Julia Roberts? She hasn’t done a movie in ages and she’s not exactly spokesperson material…not for Lancôme anyway.

The rude remarks only reflects your jealousy and insecurities. Julia is a great choice for any beauty company.
