Random Photos Part Two

This is not Mr. Bean's movie. This is an 80 year old woman attempting to restore the 18th century painting on the left and ending up with what is on the right.
I have to admit, Ashley Greene looks really good here.
Hilary Duff takes Luka out for a walk.
Most of the time Lizzy Caplan would have been on top, but being with Kirsten Dunst kind of dragged her down. Isla Fisher looks great though.
Kourtney Kardashian emerges after possible split rumors for the 84th time with Scott Disick.
Kate Upton randomly posing on the street.
Lana del Rey in West Hollywood.
Lea Michele Tweeted this photo from the set of Glee.
Miley Cyrus looking more and more like David Bowie everyday. Or Tilda Swinton.

I meant to read that about the restoration gone wrong. Wow. Wow.

bflogurl said...

That restoration is hysterical. I don't get why Miley became punk over night? I mean- cant she have that hair and dress normal or no?

Hello Alex said...

Ashley's nose, ugh.

What was it, bad plastic surgery?

Ms Cool said...

I cannot stop laughing at that painting 'restoration.'

Leisa said...

kirsten drunkst

Sherry said...

NO Enty! Never ever ever evah! Do you compare Slimely Cyrus to the Tilda.

I seriously hope she really didn't do that to an 18th painting..It takes a lot to trust someone to restore art work and one false move could be the end.

Ingrid Superstar said...

That painting restoration resulted in a Pokemon!

Ashley Greene looks like Jenna Haze there.

EmEyeKay said...

The "restoration" (in quotes, because that's no restoration job) kills me. Makes my stomach hurt.

So happy to see Lizzy in a movie!

In the 80s I wore plaid shirts tied around my waist all the time, and the farmer boys I went to high school with made fun of my "punk rock skirt". And my hair. And my boots. FFS, LEAVE MILEY ALONE. She's had to be bubble-gum girl her whole life, she's allowed to change it up!

DianaofThemyscira said...

Just read a blurb. They first thought it was vandalism then the old lady came forward and said she had done it in broad daylight with approval from the clergy. They may still press charges anyway but are far more concerned in getting the fresco restored properly by qualified artists. The family of the original painter offered some money to help maintain it in proper conditions.

SusanB said...

That "restoration" looks like a monkey in a cheap blouse. She should be ashamed.

I kind of like Kate Upton. She just seems nice. I have absolutely nothing to base that opinion on.

Jessi said...

Ok thank you for posting that restoration photo!! I think she did quite well.

And Miley seems to be loving all this attention.

I also today for the first time was listening Lana Del Rey (was on shuffle at work) - Umm not a fan. How does she have a record deal?

hollywood dime said...

I just screamlaughed at the restoration!!!! HAHAHAHahhahagh

Ingrid Superstar said...

I thought the lady just tried to reproduce it on her own. She actually did that on the original painting!? She FUCKED THAT SHIT UP

eris hilton said...

good god did the woman who tried to restore the painting do ashley greene's nose, too?! You can't even recognize her.

LynGBH said...

I agree with emeyekay...and I think miley looks pretty cute. She desperately needed to update her look, and this was a pretty good choice.

Beth said...

Ashley Greene and Lana del Rey have had some really wonky work. Their noses look like they could break off.

Miley like Bowie or Tilda? Shut it down. Not in this lifetime.

crazy/beautiful said...

Miley looks horrible. Is it possible to try/pose any harder?

Turkish Taffy said...

Snaggletooth!!! Blind item revealed!

eris hilton said...

@SusanB I totally agree! I know nothing about Kate Upton but she seems like fun. You go, Kate Upton!

Sylvia said...

Miley is such an attention whore.

Unknown said...

Hey, go easy on the old dear who did the paint job! So, it's more Dali-esque now than Fresco, but the original painting was not particularly valuable, nor valued (she came in each day to do the job, the painting was just leant up on a wall) but I bet you now that thing is worth a lot more.

Mark my words - that Church's leaky roof will be fixed this time next year!

Tigercat said...

Miley is in noway / nowhere / nohow even remotely in the same fashion league as either Bowie or Swinton.

Tank Girl is more like it.

Patty said...

In the original article, the restoration was described as a very hairy monkey in an ill-fitting tunic.

Why some people think they can do something so far beyond their means or ability never fails to surprise me.

lazyday603 said...

The painting fiasco could have been avoided if the original artist had just left the numbers visible for later restorers to follow.

OMAMA is BROKO said...

Maybe I've been watching too much 'I Love Jenni..." (Jenni Rivera's show & my latest obsession)....BUT I think Penny Scotland's mother looks incredible, thick thighs and all!

Amy Scott said...

What's your deal with my girl Kirsten Dunst?

MrWolf said...

@Ingrid LOL at the Jenna Haze comment. I'm pretty sure Ashley would find that a compliment (and probably gets around more).

- Kate Upton - I have the EXACT same expression on my face when I rake the leaves off my sidewalk too...

Ingrid Superstar said...

Nice one, lazyday603!

Texshan said...

Only in Miley's dreams would she be likened to either David Bowie or Tilda Swinton. They are both about a kajillion bajillion times cooler than her. I doubt either of them even know she exists. I wish I didn't.

Alicia said...

oh thank you for that restoration photo , I'm still in tears.

Isla is amazing but those two beezees on the right need to eat.

B said...

lol @ Tank Girl. Yes, PLEASE do not insult Tilda or Bowie (esp. Bowie) that way. Please.

I have never gotten the Kirsten hate. I'm a fan.

Icecat said...

Isn't it Baby Luca? Or am I just smoking and not sharing?

I actually like Miley's new look...She not as annoying as she used to be for some reason... (Can't believe I just typed that)

Jeneral said...

Ashley Greene looks scary skinny!

hunter said...

Kourtney looks like she's been eating her feelings. :(

KPeony said...

Miley looks great. She's 19 and trying to find herself. She's going through that awkward experimental college phase with everyone watching.

Del Riser said...

Miley's new "do" is cute for her, I hope she keeps up with the roots, no matter what the fashion is. However, to compare her to Tilda or David is beyond a stretch that even rubber man could make.

I live East of Hollywood, so Lana is going the right direction, she can keep right on going West.

dia papaya said...

I like Miley's new look. I'm pretty sure I had the exact same outfit when I went through my punk phase in the 90s.

I kinda like her more now. I want those boots!

Turkish Taffy said...

Sorry, Kirsten fans. I call her "Snaggletooth" because she was so creepy in "Interview With the Vampire".

I know a lot of people respect her as a serious actress, but I thought she was horribly miscast as MJ. I would have preferred someone sexier or with a comedy background. A younger Drew Barrymore or Sandra Bullock.

Frufra said...

Just came to say I think Miley looks good here! Glad to see I'm not alone in that thought :-).

Turkish Taffy said...

Actually, Isla Fisher would have been a better MJ. (in the older Spidermans)

Snakeoiler said...

Kate Upton, you can stay at my house.

lostathome said...

Look a Jesus looking like a Eskimo n shit

Vintage Pink said...

Miley is trying to be the new Agnyess Deyn, and failing.

Jessie said...

Um, the painting may not have been worth much money but seeing as it was from the 18th century I'd say it's priceless.

Me said...

i'd rather have a copy of the restored version than the real painting. it would make me laugh everytme i saw it.

smashbash said...

Did the lady really think it looks anything like the original? She was way off.

I am back on the liking Miley train. Rock it out girl.

supapimp said...

Dear miley,

The grunge look wasn't good in the '90s, and it's not good now in present day.

lostathome said...

She had a baby not too long ago. In the last 6 weeks I think.

WUWT? said...

Miley looks more like Pink than Tilda Swinton or David Bowie. Or like the cartoon chipmonk version of Gwen Stefani.

chopchop said...

Isla!!!!! (For those of you who aren't keeping a spreadsheet on who's who in the CDaN community, I have a baby named Isla.)

MMSG said...

Look at SJP's lower arms! AAAAAAAHHH

fancyscreenname said...

Isla is beautiful...she makes mewish i was a ginge the way Lisa Lisa made me wish i was hispanic.......

Roman Holiday said...

That picture is just so funny - this woman actually believed she was doing a good job! ART = All in the eye of the beholder!!!

parissucksliterally said...

Miley looks fucking ridiculous.

I go back and forth about whethere Ashley Greene is pretty or not.

Kourtney is pretty to me. But only when she is quiet.

Sarah said...

Lizzie is way skinny. She looks nothing like Janice Ian.

Outshined said...

Kirsten is one of my fave actors ever, don't get the anti love. I kind of like that she seems off her rocker. Depp is and people love him.

Ashley hot, don't care what she did!

nova said...

I think Miley is going hard for the Agyness Deyn rip-off, can't believe no one else has seen/mentioned that!

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

After reading about what a jerk David Bowie is in real life, I think I'm on team Miley.

Tuxedo Cat said...

@lostathome The word 'Eskimo' is outdated -- the modern word is 'Inuit'. I know this because my son is half-Inuit, and this is what his extended family prefers.

Popnursing said...

Heh. Hilary Duff has my tree trunks.

liteNOTSObrite said...

I like her nose. It has a slight Christy Turlington way about it.

Popnursing said...

There's really no other way to say it! I hope Rome's press release uses your exact quote.

goes in circles said...

Vintage Pink mentioned it up thread.

jadetoo said...

Miley's current hair is way better than that ridiculous lazy cinnamon bun she was wearing on her head.

Sarah said...

DON'T COMPARE MILEY TO MY TILDA. Thanks.

Beta said...

I love that restoration!!
its like its done with lots of love + its hilarious!
apparently its so famous that now the church has to organise visiting hours, when nobody went to visit it before XD
the locals are very happy with it too :)
its in a church in the north of spain btw, close to Zaragoza

oralagm said...

Miley looks like an inbred coal-miners daughter. With a killer mental condition.

oralagm said...

I wish lea michele would drown in guiar bubbles. She is heiness...all the time.

Sandy said...

Please. Cyrus couldn't approximate either SWINTON or Bowie if she tried every day for the rest of her life. At best she looks like a bad imitator of that girl from Roxette.

Lelaina Pierce said...

Has anyone seen the picture comparing the restoration
to Rowlf the Dog from the muppets? HA!

I watched Bachelorette a few weeks ago and laughed my ass off. It's pretty dark, but the cast was great.

Agent**It said...

Celine, I meant to tell you, you look silly. As a penance, please send me some of your money. Just enough for, I don't know, groceries?
