Although Julianne Moore's Oscar campaign this year for her fantastic work in Tom Ford's A Single Man has ended, she perhaps got the best one-up of all on those other nominated actresses - looking amazing. She was selected as the face for Bvlgari's 2010 spring line as announced late 2009 and her ads for the fashion house have finally surfaced. Combing through my Tweets today, I see that supermodel/media mogul Tyra Banks is a huge fan of the ad seen to the left, describing it "DIVINE!". I'd call it tastefully provocative. At 49 years old, Moore is still the epitome of ageless beauty and grace and showing no signs of stopping.
But above being gorgeous, she is actually wonderful in-person also. I had the pleasure of meeting Moore back in September 2006 while she was in town promoting husband Bart Freundlich's Trust The Man at TIFF. After the screening had ended, I actually got to chat with her at good length about acting and how much her performance in Far From Heaven, for which she actually received an Oscar nomination, had touched me. She gave me a big hug and even remembered my name as she waved goodbye to me. I will never forget that moment.
