Every seasoned TV watcher understands the power of the remote control. One of the greatest inventions of our time, it allows one to channel-surf during obnoxious commercials.
But every once in a while, a commercial comes along that causes one to freeze and not touch that dial. For me, it’s those T-Mobile commercials pitting the new myTouch 4G phone against the mighty AT&T iPhone.
But it aint the pitch that keeps me glued to the channel – it’s T-Mobile’s new spokesmodel.
Turns out that she is causing quite a stir in cyberspace, commanding great interest and admiration. But mostly, everyone is asking the same question: “Who is that girl in the pink-and-white dress?”
One writer put it this way, “Who is the gal working the Anne Hathaway-meets-Kim Basinger look?” Aptly said.
And another writer even suggested that she should play Wonder Woman in an upcoming movie. No argument there.
While much of the speculation in cyberspace was that she is Jessica Pare of “Mad Men” and “Hot Tub Time Machine” fame, it turns out, she’s actually fashion model Carly Foulkes, best known for her work with Abercrombie and Fitch, Artistry Cosmetics, Express, Gilly Hicks, Khols, Macys, Nieman Marcus, Tommy Hilfigger and one Elle Magazine cover.
What I love most is that Carly honors the gorgeous dresses she wears with beautiful high heels and, of course, some absolutely delicious-looking sheer nude pantyhose.
My question is: Does Carly get the credit for this very beautiful, decidedly feminine look, or does T-Mobile?
I mean if it were up to Carly, would she have chosen this outfit? Or would she prefer to wear jeans and a T-shirt, or even a dress, but – in keeping with the current fashion trend of today’s youth – no pantyhose?
In trying to identify her myself, I found a couple of other photos of her wearing dresses and pantyhose on stage or in magazine shoots, so she has convinced me that she deserves Credit “wear” Credit is Due!
But, I’ve gotta give some props to the creative talents at T-Mobile for creating the look. After all, their previous spokesmodel was Catherine Zeta-Jones, who always appeared in glamorous dresses, high heels and sheer nude pantyhose.
So, a good case could be made for T-Mobile’s good eye for beauty, class and grace, and knowing how to sell it.
Then again, here’s what always puzzles me: If you’ve got a beauty like Carly Foulkes as your spokesmodel, and she looks absolutely incredible dressed like this (left), why in the world would you ever have her dress like this ( below right)?
Either way, I am impressed with Carly Foulkes. I believe that she really “gets it,” and that we’ll continue to see her looking lovely and classy in dresses, high heels and sheer pantyhose.
