The question was raised recently on 12 Blueprints' Facebook page whether Milla Jovovich is a Bright Spring. I think she is, but others believe she's a Summer. She's certainly not easy to type.
Here are some pics I've gathered that I believe suggest Bright Spring; I'd love to hear what you readers see in these pics.
Here's the picture I saw in Lucky magazine that made me first suspect Bright Spring for Milla. What I noticed in this pic, which I think is a flattering and harmonious look for her:
warm highlights in the hair;
bright gold jewelry near her face;
high color contrast;
and a pink that looks to be a match for one in the Bright Spring book.
I find this look flattering as well. I think she's pulling off the super-bright, slightly warm yellow, and I think the warm makeup looks natural on her.
(That lip may be a teensy bit off, but it's pretty good.)
I don't love the purple hair-thingy. Nor do I love the black eyeliner. But I do notice here that the black in the dress doesn't seem to be overwhelming her - I think she's balancing it. I also think she's balancing the very intense warmish-red lip. So I think her season is one that can take a lot of color.
To my eye, this makeup looks right. It also looks warm and saturated (a.k.a. Springy).
This close up, it does seem a little heavy, but I suspect that's for the cameras. The colors themselves look spot-on to me.
Here, I almost think she could pull off this outrageous shirt, if she had a stronger lip. Even then the shirt colors might be too cool. But I do notice that the crazily saturated stripes aren't totally owning her. I still find myself looking at her eyes.
Imagine this top, by comparison, on Soft Summer Miley Cyrus, or True Summer Kimberly Williams, or Light Spring Taylor Swift, or Warm Spring Cameron Diaz. Could any of them handle this?
Here, what strikes me is that the hair's too light and she's dominating the shirt and scarf. The matchy-matchiness of eyes + shirt and hair + scarf may fool your gut into thinking something right is happening... but doesn't the skin of her face seem to be calling for much more intensity than it's surrounded with?
There are many, many pics of Milla looking less than her best on the 'net. I won't post them here - you'll see them if you try to find good ones of her. But now, your turn: what do you see in these pics? Something different than what I see? Do you have links to pics that seem to suggest another season? As ever, I'm interested in truth - not in being right. So please, argue away.
