On the Street......Oxford St., Sydney

UPDATE: Of the 100 comments so far, for this image, only two mentioned what I thought was most important element - the strong eyebrows of the girl on the right.

That is a real stylistic choice, as much as choosing a great pair of shoes or a bag.

So what about a strong brow? Can it be a trend or is it totally dependent on the person?

Anonymous Belgiquechique said ... (10:13 AM) : 

A strong brow can definitely be a stylistic choice, if you have strong eyebrows and don't want to pluck them... but it also largely depends on your genes. If you're fair-haired and have fine hair, it's unlikely you'll have brows like this girl on the right. And moreover, strong eyebrows wouldn't work that well on the girl on the left, in my opinion, it's just a totally different type of person.

But it definitely beats the thin to non-existent eyebrows that have been in fashion for so long..


Anonymous Belgiquechique said ... (10:16 AM) : 

Oh and I remember having seen Dicaprio in a very similar pose as the girl to the right, in one of his earliest movies, maybe that's partly why she reminds us of him so much. Don't remember if it was in "what's eating gilbert grape" or sth..


Anonymous Jessica said ... (10:20 AM) : 

im kind of amused because this entire time i've thought the girl on the right was a sexy guy. hahahaha<3


Blogger Sara Lee Bentley said ... (10:21 AM) : 

Well... seeing as my own brows can definitely be considered as "strong" I think it's more than a trend and totally dependant on the person wearing them. You can't hide strong brows and don't even try!


Blogger Book Sake said ... (10:25 AM) : 

The eyebrows of the girl on the right were the first thing that jumped out at me. They frame her eyes perfectly, I think she's just gorgeous!


Blogger Marissa said ... (10:32 AM) : 

strong eyebrows depends on the person, eyebrow shaping all depends on the shape of the person's face imo. that being said, her eyebrows are really cool and this is a really cool pic.

Blogger PARIS said ... (11:04 AM) : 

Strong eye brows are extremely special & specific. It absolutely depends on your face shape and the nature of your eyebrow hair growth in general. For example, they look fantastic on this lovely Australian girlie & someone like Filippa Hamilton or Brooke Shields... lucky lucky ladies!

Great shots, you really capture the superb style that is Sydney... so unlike anything else! xx P.


Blogger mani said ... (11:08 AM) : 

i think a strong brow depends on the person - its best to find a shape that frames your eyes well and maintain that, rather than change it up when the trends change. The right brow is like a classic LBD, if it works on you, it'll never go out of style


Anonymous Breda L said ... (11:21 AM) : 

Her eyebrows frame her face beautifully, and she can really pull off their strength that's why I'd say that eyebrow's can't really be manipulated to be fashionable or not. They should transcend trend and suit the person instead..but hey maybe I'm jealous, my eyebrows just wouldn't grow that thick! :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:35 AM) : 

I think you need to be the person to have strong brows. i have strong eyebrows, but I would look ugly with thin eyebrows.

it's hard to fake thick eyebrows without looking like a clown, but yes they can be a trend. why not?
we blondes don't stand much of a chance of participating unless we go garish.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:20 PM) : 

hmm.. I don't know.
I sure works on the girl in this picture, but I remember some celeb's trying, didn't turn out so good-looking :
leighton meester here :

or Katie Price, and evn Ali Lohan :

it never looks good.

So, I don't see this becoming a trend. I just think that *sometimes*, on the right person, it looks incredible. just like bleached brows on Lara Stone.


Blogger Passport Smiles said ... (12:22 PM) : 

I think a strong brow adds so much to beauty, personally. However, I think it's a current trend. The shape of euebrows changes with times. The 80s anyone? The non-existent eyebrows in the 90s?

Women's faces are defined by the eyebrow; men's by the hairline.


Blogger Kate said ... (12:32 PM) : 

my first thought was the eyebrows before i had saw your comment on them. I'm all about the big strong eyebrows, so much in fact i have cut my fringe so that i look like Spock so that they can be shown off for the first time in a year! i'd love to see big brows on everyone, overplucked ones knock me sick, but i don't think everyone can pull it off, just like every 'trend' really. she can though. i like to think i can- but then again mine have never been small (former mono-brow!) and i love that neither of them seem to be wearing a lot, if any make-up. funny, the girls i see round uni with the caked on make up and the orange foundation have the horrible over plucked eyebrows. best to be as natural as you can be.


Anonymous erika said ... (12:36 PM) : 

Unfortunately not everyone is able to have strong eyebrows like hers, unless they're penciled on -- which is another statement altogether... That said, I love hers.. she's very lucky.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:36 PM) : 

i believe that strong eyebrows are a trend these days, as they had been when brooke shields was a teenager. However, not everyone can have such strong eyebrows. The trend is actually having a natural look, in contrast to the extra thin eyebrows was some time ago.


Blogger Alexandra said ... (12:36 PM) : 

I think it's definitely dependent on the person...there are certainly people who have maintained thick eyebrows their whole lives (Charlotte Casiraghi, Brooke Shields, etc.) and I feel like it is, as you said, an individual expression of their style.


Blogger Ammu said ... (12:38 PM) : 

You need to have the face for strong eyebrows. That said, nothing looks worse than overplucked eyebrows - ugh!


Blogger Blair said ... (1:01 PM) : 

My sister has a very strong brow--and with her high cheekbones and big eyes, we always tell her she looks like Audrey Hepburn.

I think more women should consider not thinning down their eyebrows--not that it would look good on everyone, but it's so striking on the women who dare.


Blogger indigo warrior said ... (1:01 PM) : 

I think the shape of a brow is a style choice. Brows have been thin, thick, and all kinds of things in between, but I go for a pretty classic arch and not thin at all myself. That's how I like to frame my eyes.


Blogger Kathleen said ... (1:07 PM) : 

When I think of strong brows I think of only one person, Elizabeth Taylor. Has there ever been anyone in the public's eye that could pull them off like she did in her younger days? Maybe Suzy Parker? But I think hers were enhanced ala 50's. How incredible Liz looked and how incredible this young one looks. Its not just the strong brow its the actual shape! Did she come this way? Did she pay someone to meticulously do the job? She is so natural, I somehow picture her walking out of the house this way. Love the photograph all the way around. Back to the brows for a moment. There are strong brows and then there are these kind of brows, uniques and sexy! One more, Sophia Loren:)


Blogger ML said ... (1:10 PM) : 

Strong brows are wonderful, and the shape of the brow is definitely a style choice. I personally love the bold look, but I can't have mine like that, simply because, well, I don't have quite enough brow :P


Anonymous mabelmabel said ... (1:20 PM) : 

Re the brow: Go for it.

Anyone can do it--whether natural or drawn in--and anyone should do it, at least once.

Life is too short not to risk something that may not suit you.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:24 PM) : 

I never realized that there was a trend to eyebrows. Mainly because I've always had to pencil mine in because I have very sparse brows and when shaped, it looks like i have none. I need to always draw them in to make my eyes appear more defined and it is a major pain. I would say that I'd lean towards having a a strong brow. It's natural, beautiful when shaped and at least it gives you the option to thin them out if desired.


Blogger Anna said ... (1:24 PM) : 

The strong eye brows already is a trend. Fall09 runways showed a lot of that kind of maku-up. IN sweden it's quite trendy right now :) But still, its not suited for every one, I think.

Both girls are stunning but as far as the girl on the right is concerned, you see the eyebrows more than you see the girl. I think that's a bit of a shame. Her brows seem to masculine for the rest of her face because it's so fine.

i love this picture. the girl on the right is striking. and yes, the brows make her so.


Anonymous Masha said ... (5:23 PM) : 

I love strong eyebrows, and mine I quite strong. I don't think it can be a trend because many people have rather thin eyebrows. But one thing for sure I always get so upset if someone I now who had strong eyebrows thins them out and often make such a silly shape that I want to cry! I think it is a gift - to have strong eyebrows and it is impossible to grow them back. So girls, please, please, please think twice or... three or four times before thining them out.

The picture is amazing. I don't think there something wrong with the hands... The mood of the pic is fantastic!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:35 PM) : 

the brows were the first thing i loved/noticed about her..... absolutely stunning.

and i think they can be trendy or classic. it's classic if it's your signature as a woman, whereas i'd say it's trendy if you had the strong-brow look for a time but don't generally keep them that way.

I think those strong brows not only suit her, but strike me as incredibly soft and natural. I know they are strong, but I can't over emphasize how much softer her whole personality seems because of them. I've seen too many beautiful women with overly thin, equally strong eyebrows. Penciled in. It is such a hard look.


Blogger Cecilia said ... (6:18 PM) : 

As a fifteen year old girl with thick, dark eyebrows, it has been very hard for me, at an age when peer pressure (as over used as that word is, it felt needed in the context) is such a strong factor in everyday life, to keep my bold eyebrows. In the past I have over plucked them (disastrously, I might add) and it wasn't until recently that I have realized that they help shape my face, add character, & have become almost my trademark. In an age when most girls my age have barely there brows its nice to have thick browed role models such as actress Camilla Belle & model Ali Michael. Style (not just fashion) is very important to me & my eyebrows, no matter what anyone says, will always be adding character to my face.

I love how the girl on the right looks so carefree and her limbs are bare so even as we're drawn to her pixie face (i completely agree that she looks like young leo di caprio) there's a tangle of flesh colored knots underneath.
Her brows make her look more devlish and it adds to her rougher style. Otherwise, with delicate brows, she'd look like a thin-boned fairy!

It's a shame that the blond girl on the left is not given more attention. She fades bit, no?

Brows are incredibly important - they frame the face and, I think, look fresh no matter what your age. I'm all for my daughter (14) experimenting etc but I've drummed into her that once her brows are touched, that's it! She has real Brooke Shield eyebrows, they're gorgeous and they're staying that way!

I wish I had the option of thicker brows. I did have thicker brows as a kid but i plucked them so zealously as a teen that they stopped growing back. I'm just lucky I didn't ruin them entirely, at least they are still a nice and natural shape, even if they are narrow! Let that be a lesson to any teen readers - are you really so sure you want paper thin brows? They might go out of style and by then you might be stuck with them. You're much better off just tidying up the scraggly hairs underneath and keeping your natural fullness and shape.

Natalia Vodianova sold me on the strong brow the first time I saw her, so I've been about it for years. Unfortunately, I could never do it myself. My eyebrows are limited in scope, and light enough that they almost disappear in the summer. Perhaps that's why I appreciate strong, dark, eyebrows so much on other women.


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:21 PM) : 

The fashionistas would have us believe a strong brow is a trend, but like anything else, it should be completely dictated by the person - their bone structure, their tastes, and the image they wish to present.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:56 PM) : 

I love a strong eyebrow! The girl on the right is beautiful. The blonde girl is a nice contrast because I love that fair skin, fair hair look and a strong eyebrow on her would take away from that. :)

the eyebrows are a statement however don't think it can be a trend- definitely dependent on the person- i know i couldn't pull that off- very very dependent. but if you can pull it off- its amazing.


Blogger esther said ... (9:14 PM) : 

love this shot. i think a strong brow depends on the person, just like a funky haircut does, e.g. a pixie cut.

and does anyone know where her bag is from? i adore it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:54 PM) : 

those brows... they are straight up bonafide SEXY


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:01 PM) : 

In reaction to the post update - I'm a heterosexual guy, and I LOVE girls with eyebrows like the young lady on the right. I think it's such a classy look. Really thin eyebrows are disconcerting to me for some reason.


Blogger Little Lovables said ... (10:36 PM) : 

A true gamine can pull off those strong brows and playfulness.

Lovely and innocent with a hint of an edge. as far as it being a trend? It definitely depends on the face of the wearer.


Blogger Aske said ... (10:39 PM) : 

well, big brows is beautiful for some girls, obviously! But I think it does make the girl look a little tom-boy'ish. So I don't think that this is able to become a real trend, because only a minority is able to wear it properly. But if one is able to make it look good, this is defiantly a great detail!


Anonymous stefica said ... (11:23 PM) : 

Eyebrows definitely look best kept in or close to their natural shape. I never understood the trend a few years back of the thin brows that all looked the same--usually with the thinned, poker-straight hair, too. It was a dull look, and creepy in the uniformity. What looks best on each person is not necessarily what looks best on others.


Blogger Yeji Jun said ... (12:02 AM) : 

eye brow can be a trend always. definitely. But the person has to know which is good on her before following the trend.


Blogger Sophia L said ... (1:03 AM) : 

I love her eyebrows! They are the first thing my eye went to when I looked at the picture. I have fairly strong eyebrows myself, and I will never lay a tweezer or a wax strip on them!

I also think it's fun how they have similar poses, but they look like they're in two different worlds with their outfits:)

your blog has inspired me to get back in touch with my camera, if only I could capture half the beauty you do!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:03 AM) : 

She's got those Margaux Hemingway eyebrows going on with a luminous face and an adorable smile. Even if the brows were to become a trend again, it only looks special and real on a lucky few.


Anonymous Katherine said ... (2:36 AM) : 

I have naturally think brows and went through a phase in the 90s were I tried to 'thin' them away - Yuk! Not to mention the every day plucking mission. Brows should definitely work with your features/structure etc. I love the 'eyebrow girl' - natural and beutiful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:23 AM) : 

She resembles Brooke Shields in The Blue Lagoon.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:29 AM) : 

i think its a trend as much as it will maybe feature more in editorial/campaigns where exagerrated eyebrows work
buin an everyday context physically changing your brows is very difficult
i have naturally dark and thick brows for my hair and i plucked them to oblivion, but when i was 15 i realised it was doing me no favours so grew the back (which was incredibly traumatic! i cant see any older women doing it) and i was lucky to grow them back at all
brows are beautiful when theyre natural and lightly defined


Blogger F (The Very Subjective) said ... (4:13 AM) : 

if it looks good on you - why not? definitely adds some character to the face.

strong brow is a yes-yes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:48 AM) : 

These two girls are Australian models.
The one on the right featured in the latest Russh magazine, her name is Bambi.

They make scroungy look so good. Artful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:57 AM) : 

Obviously it is dependent on the person, only a person with thick eyebrows can possibly choose to have thick eyebrows (instead of choosing to pluck them), I am a redhead with thin blonde eyebrows and no matter how I try I will never have naturally thick eyebrows.


Anonymous andrea said ... (7:14 AM) : 

I think a strong eyebrow depends on the person who has it, it doesn't look good on ANYBODY, but that girl is gorgeous! I love her :)

great shot, and great girls :)


Blogger iamhiawatha said ... (7:43 AM) : 

yea I totally agree, natural brow shape with some light definition... Ya gotta love a strong eyebrow :)


Blogger Thais said ... (8:03 AM) : 

I think strong eyebrows are supercool!!! Just look at the girl on the right.
It obviously depend on the face but I really believe it is a very trendy and original choice.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:24 AM) : 

I think she is beautiful. They are both striking. And noticed the eyebrows straight away. They have a very clean, natural, youthful look. BUT, some of us couldn't have eyebrows like that, even if we wanted them. Stylistic choice or not!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:15 AM) : 

She's channeling Ali MacGraw with those eyebrows. A MacGraw-eyebrow renaissance goes right along with designers' current embrace of other '70s style elements - denim, wide-leg pants, prints, etc.


Blogger SZMITOLOGIA said ... (9:23 AM) : 

Will always be a trend and has always been!! From Cleopatra to Marilyn up to Linda Evangelista etc etc etc...Behind the trend, on the street you can see it all, well done or less...the both have natural eyebrowns so here there is no trends !! My personal guess is that the girl with short hair propably are lesbian so her look are more relaxed and natural! Nice pic and cute girls! Thanks! /Eugen

Anonymous Medina said ... (9:37 AM) : 

I've been asking myself the same question ever since the strong brow look caught on a few years ago. I immediately loved it and grew my brows out. However, having strong, rough face structure, they unfortunately made me look like a crazy man and like my brother said "just because it's in style it doesn't mean that it suits everybody". So... I trimmed them down a bit.

After my own failed strong brow incident and after observing the girls that get away with them the best (Natalia Vodianova making a great example) I realized that a strong brow in general suits a person with very soft, feminine, girl-like features and is definately a trend that should not be picked up by everybody.

Was SO great meeting you at American Apparel today!

I hope you are having a lovely time in Sydney.
Can totally understand your love for eyebrows here in Bambi and Grace at the store today.
BOTH such beautiful girls!

Safe travels!

Lovemore, Bel

Every person recognizes how a nice coif can enhance a woman's appearance. I've always found it puzzling how few women seem to realize the dramatic effect a full and shapely brow can also have. It seems to me to be the easiest and most effective way for a woman to make herself achieve natural beauty.


Blogger Moëtte said ... (11:32 AM) : 

It's lovely

simple and amazing.


Blogger SWolgang said ... (11:51 AM) : 

I think the strong eyebrows of the girl on the right truly make her stand out. My girlfriend has strong eyebrows and personally I find that to be one of her most attractive traits.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:14 PM) : 

sometimes beauty shows through in spite of itself


Blogger i'm B. said ... (12:50 PM) : 

The Girl on the Right reminds me of a young leonardo dicaprio. in his basketball diaries/gilbert grape era. a compliment, for sure.


Blogger williamjamesbaker said ... (2:11 PM) : 

A strong brow on a girl is most attractive; but like a number of comments here, not everyone can pull it off
The tom-boy look is one I personally like-

You've captured her personality beautifully with this photo. The eyebrows really make it.

I think only a very feminine woman could use short hair and strong eyebrows. It works for her!

great brows. most definitely depends on the person, because if you don't have naturally thick brows you can't fake it!

Wonderful photo! Fantastic work ;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:08 PM) : 

I noticed the strong eyebrows, too, and I really like them. So many girls keep their eyebrows so thin, and I think it's so much prettier when they aren't so little. They look more confident, kind of.

As for your trend question, I think most anyone could look good with strong eyebrows if they take care of them, but I think that it will never become one, just because so many girls over-pluck their brows. Really, a lot of girls are too insecure about thick eyebrows to let them grow out a little bit.

The girl on the right is Charlotte Best an Australian actor, who stars in the soap Home and away.
Love the picture, both girls seem so confident and the style is amazing!
