Our exquisite Ms Green will be feature on the March issue of GQ (alongside other “hot actresses” such as Isla Fisher and Odette Yustman) and we have a stunning preview thanks to Lorna! I can’t wait for this issue to come out!!!

    It reminds me a Charles Baudelaire’s poem : “L’invitation au voyage” (The invitation to the trip). When you look to the landscape which takes shape between the two doors, with that two hills with harmonious contours, how you can’t think about Baudelaire’s words :

    Là, tout n’est qu’ordre et beauté,
    Luxe, calme et volupté.

    (There, all is order and beauty,
    Luxury, peace and voluptuousness)

    Hmmm, will Eva be here? http://www.montblanc.com/sfg/index_register.php

  3. George Says:

    From January they have already set the cover of March? This is what I call programming.
    GQ = GreenQueen if you didn’t know…

    Gorgeous!! I can’t WAIT to see this photo shoot!

  5. Mycah Says:

    I can’t wait to see this!

  6. George Says:

    Tom: Surely she will be there along with her portrait to be signed! (maybe that’s why Franklyn’s premiere is postponed to February 27th). Tom, do you want to make the same trick as Liz did at her birthday in order to get the USD 4810 to go to the Gala? It’s in your neighborhood anyway…

    PS …why 4810 USD and not 5000? Anyway Montblanc except from a faster server (…) needs also a speller (quiz: find the typo in the invitation text). Whoever is interested for invitations 3 days left to decide…

  7. Liz Says:

    Tom : I think it’s not impossible that EVa will attend the gala dinner.
    Further, the date would explain why Franklyn’s premiere has been rescheduled to 27th February since the gala will be hold on 20th…
    We can only wait… as always…

  8. spot Says:

    i’m not feeling the cover but i’d like to see the ed that accompanies it.

  9. Monique Says:

    spot: I know what you mean…I can’t find the word, but something seems off (might have to get back to you on that one)…

    I hope she does attend the Montblanc gala…it would be nice to see her there…

    I’m still worried about Franklyn…still crossing my fingers that it gets shown here…

  10. Clarisse Says:

    Wow, when i saw this picture and remember what she said on “One Day With Eva Green”, it’s kinda funny. This picture didn’t really look like her everyday life ! But she’s stunning, as always!

  11. Tom Says:

    Don’t care for the hair and the finger pulling open the blouse comes off as gratuitous.

  12. spot Says:

    Monique: i think there’s just too much going on on that cover.

    Tom: are you going? this is the wrong time to be away from LA 🙁

  13. Tom Says:

    No, I live on the East Coast of the US, not that I have $4800 for a ticket anyway!

  14. Monique Says:

    spot and Tom: the two of you might be right…anyway, I prefer her more artsy covers…I mean, where’s the weird hair and the Oriental clothes…I miss that…

  15. George Says:

    Tom: Think it again. If you find the $4800 I could lend you the remaining $10. It’s up to you to take advantage of my generosity and you have only a few hours to decide…

  16. spot Says:

    Tom: i prefer the east coast but LA is LA 🙁

    Monique: i’m not exactly looking for the usual Eva red carpet look but this cover just fail on many levels, considering that it’s GQ. i would prefer an entirely different concept for the cover. i hope the ed or other pictures inside aren’t as femme fatale as this cover.

  17. George Says:

    question: what is she holding with her right hand?
    spot: Think positive. Imagine Eva with a cravate like Jennifer Aniston playing the pin up…

  18. Tom Says:

    Thanks George! Send me that $10 and I’ll, ummm, let you know how the party was. 🙂 But be warned, I will make every effort to not be photographed there, so don’t expect any photographic proof of ay attendance. 🙂

  19. Tango_down Says:

    Tom spotted Monique : The more I look to that cover, the more I feel the same thing than you. I didn’t notice first the finger on the low-cut, but I agree that is really too much.
    Who said that she doesn’t want to be labeled as fatale woman ?

    And the more I look to that cover, the more I feel that it would be perfect on… a charm/erotic magazine…

    So question : is it really Eva on that cover ?

    ps : ironic

  20. George Says:

    Tom: I can understand your incognito being surrounded by all this vanity (lol). However, as the deadline has expired let’s have it in mind for the next time…
    Tango_down: she is just playing a role according to this kind of magazine. Eva likes to play roles and she can play very well the role of seductive woman even if it’s not our favorite (?)

  21. Liz Says:

    George: She is holding a violin bow!

    I agree, that cover is really not following the “not-being-the-femme fatale” theory, but it shows Eva playing a role as George supposed.
    Besides I think you’re right, George, she is absolutely convincing with her seductive pose.

    BUT it is really far away from Aniston’s way of promoting herself!

    spot: Me too, I am curious about the other pictures from that shooting.

  22. Tango_down Says:

    Liz : Have you ever played violin ?

    You have to have already handled its bow at least once to recognize it 😉

    I know she plays a role but I prefer much more the psychological fatale woman, who can shoot you with her eyes, than the one who uses simply her body and takes a nasty posture. But Eva may has fun playing the stereotypical fatale woman indeed.
    Apollinaire did the metaphor of the fatale woman with the colchicum, which is a very beautiful flower but poisonous. I would love to see Eva playing a fatale woman in a movie with a guy who tells her : “Et ma vie pour tes yeux lentement s’empoisonne” (And my life for your eyes slowly poisons itself)

    I just try to find nasty things to say against Eva, so which mark would you give me for my performance ? Am I good or am I good ?

  23. George Says:

    Tango_down: you are playing this role adequately (i.e. you are good in being bad…) but something inside you don’t let your full potential to come out (lol). Anyway, EGW needs an Isnogood and occasionally we all might play this role…

  24. Mariana Says:

    Eva loves to play a role. In photoshoots she gets to be what she isn’t. She plays a role. She goes all dramatic. She puts clothes she doesn’t wear usually and puts makeup on. She likes all that. We know it. I’m used to seeing sexy photoshoots of Eva. But her shoots, even though they’re sexy aren’t raunchy. They’re classy. She behaves like a femme fatale, like a “dangerous gorgeous lady” straight out of a film noir. She doesn’t behave like a “sexy slut”. I think she looks good in this cover. And it doesn’t diminish her. But I’d also love to see different kinds of shoots. Well, Eva shoots, especially new are always welcome. The camera loves her!

  25. Tango_down Says:

    Mariana : Talking about new and fresh photoshoots, for my part I loved the one from GQ France (maybe my favorite), the one she made in a rain forest, that kind of pics were new at that moment, even if it was not very underlined. We’ve seen a lot of Eva’s photoshoots here and even if this “controversial” (if you let me use the word) cover looks very good we may have become too much accustomed with that dramatic/fatale woman register.
    We all know that Eva loves to play role, in red carpet, interview and photoshoot, she not only plays, she lives as an actress. But as well as she refused to play in Black Dahlia to not be labeled as a fatale woman (a reason among others), we can wonder why she often plays that role in photoshoots, if acting is like being photographed ? That is rather paradoxical, isn’t it ?
    I don’t know if directors sometimes have a look to magazines’ covers, but if it’s the case it may has an impact on Eva’s pic on their mind ?

    I also can’t wait to see what the rest of the issue is going to be, now we’ve seen the bow we’re certainly going to see the violin.

    PS : Craignais tu vraiment qu’Iznogood prenne ta place ? 🙂

    George : Am I still as good ?

  26. Mariana Says:

    Tango_down: I don’t know. She refused Black Dahlia when she wasn’t that well know, when she still had to prove herself. According to her, she still does. But it’s different now. People are more aware of who she is. Plus, that was a pretty one-dimensional femme fatale role. Not one with many layers. And despite being a Brian De Palma film, it sucked big time! I’m not sure that she’d refused all sexy and femme fatale roles if they were also “dark and complex”, you see what I mean. But about photoshoots, I don’t know. I loved the GQ France one as well. And in the past year’s EVU Madame Figaro shoots she was sexy but above all “crazy and funny”.

  27. spot Says:

    Tango_down: directors do look at magazines but i think it’s mostly casting directors who do. it’s part of scouting. photoshoots generally have little impact when it comes to casting 😉

    Mariana: i know what you mean when it comes to Eva playing roles and the whole femme fatale issue. however, i’d like to see her in a film noir or a Terry Richardson-esque photoshoot 😛 the GQ France shoot is also one of my favorites!

  28. George Says:

    Tango_down: no, now you are better (lol)

    By the way I am also curious to see if there is a violin in the photosoot.
