I have to hurry up, write this post and post it… before I see Inception (sometime tonight). I’ve been intrigued with the idea of the movie ever since I wrote about Ellen Page months ago. I remember watching the trailer and thinking it was a must-see for me. My husband is dissing the movie already, pointing out all of the negative reviews (2 or 3!) he’s seen. I’ve heard more good ones, but I’m trying to go in with an open mind.
The hairstyles alone are enough to draw me in. Two mane examples are leading ladies Ellen Page and Marion Cottilard. Their styles couldn’t be more different–natural vs. supernatural. Glamorous pix of Ellen from the movie are hard to come by. Even though she’s a professional architect, Ellen Juno looks like a young girl next to Leo. Ellen’s architect character shuns the executive tress code for coifs that say “casual Friday” or “weekends at home.” Meanwhile Marion dons the dos of a bombshell beauty like the one she played in Public Enemies. The looser ringlets that captured the heart of Dillinger are tighter and more polished to contrast with her gun-toting character.
Of course the playing field was more level at Inception’s premiere (top). The stars both opted for updos, but again the results weren’t the same. Ms. Page let her side bangs hang out and loosened some other spots. As she often does, Marion went sleek and straight to high fashion. Either upsweep makes a grand entrance.
I’m stopping while I’m ahead. Check back later to see what the verdict will be!
