Over-plucking is officially a trend. It has been before, sometimes beautifully so, from those fabulous flappers to many early Hollywood vixens (see Jean Harlow's famous peepers, above). But there's a fine line (literally!) between stylized glam and gothic horror show.
The Times piece seems to be pretty clear which side of the line they're on, right from their photo choice (see below). Not exactly a classic bridal look, is it?
The whole thing reminded us of that recent complaint from an American Apparel employee, who claims her American Apparel boss (and all around slimeball) Dov Charney sent around a newsletter telling sales workers to make sure their eyebrows are more like Brook Shields'.
Still, we've seen plenty of ladies look lovely with thinner or thicker brows, so we remain open on the subject... within reason.
