i've got a crush on this momma


Milla Jovovich - for some bizarre reason, some quirk of brain, I remember the exact first time I saw this woman's face- she was a teenager on the cover of Seventeen magazine; I was in high school, and thought she was a goddess of beauty, a girl I would kill to look like. She modeled, and then ditched modeling to become a singer. But turns out, her music is actually kinda cool, weird and funky and with cult appeal, and she went from music to movies- we own The Fifth Element and love it- to fashion, and her label is all kinds of awesome. Then? She has a baby au natural, ( which I think is very cool, as I have done that both times ;) is a baby-wearer and names her daughter Ever, a name I love and have placed at the top of my girl baby names. So crush. Crush hard.

I saw her perform in London so very long ago. She was great, and gorgeous! I adore her.

I've never heard her sing before. I didn't even had any idea that she was a singer. But she is. She really REALLY is. I just found a clip of her singing on youtube and my jaw dropped. What an incredible voice! I vote for more of Milla singing. Now, pleases.

I agree with you completely. I fell in love with this woman the first time I saw her, too. She is amazing...super human!!

I'm sorry I'm so sporadic in blogging...I'm working on becoming a bit more consistent with reading blogs and writing mine. I am just so all over the place lately! Anyway, I really admire your write, and I just think you have such a beautiful and insightful spirit.

She's a beauty.
Ever? really? I hadn't heard that name....I like original names but I don't know if I am in love with that one...

I know! She is the perfect human, I tell you! I also remember her from the Seventeen days. Sigh.

Baby au natural? Does this mean natural birth? Is it rare now days? Oh dear.

You have such good crushes.

Ever since Cuffs, I have had a crush on her. Mind you, it's not so secret now.

nkp said...

That is soooo strange because I have the very same memory of the Seventeen cover and the article inside. I suppose I must have been in high school as well and I was particularly attracted because she too hails from the Soviet Union. Although I'm sure I have a few years on her. Memories.... :0)

Allison the Meep said...

Oh yes. My Milla crush has been going on for years now. She's a total babe.

Cid said...

Usually I think star's baby names are ridiculous. Hello Rumer and Apple? But Ever, that is cool :)

angela simione said...

super hard crush! i adore her as well. such a wonder and a beauty. talented and graceful and endearing in everything she does. and her label is FABULOUS! as gorgeous as she is which is a magnificent feat in itself. i also appreciate that she's kept her natural beauty and hasn't fallen in to the cult of plastic surgery that most celebrities get hooked by.

i love the russian lullaby she sings at the end of 'the divine comedy'. stunning.

I still always think of the movie Kuffs when I see her :)

Plus she can rock the skinny jeans post-baby.

Petit fleur said...

She IS a Goddess of beauty!! I have a crush on her also...And you are too. Seriously. I have a tiny crush on you too!! :-)

I loved the 5th E and had forgotten about it. Need to rewatch. She was so captivating and it was especially odd with the strange hairdo they gave her. She still shown like star in the heavens.
You are a Goddess with impeccable taste in art and beauty amd a true gift for communicating it.

I heart her too!

Milla rocks it. Funky, herself in her own skin, through & through.

Loved her in 5th element, may just have to watch it again just to get my fix.

clearness said...

She looks very pure with clear skin. Love to be hear...anyone with good skin.

Phoenix said...

I adore Milla so much. I love The Fifth Element and think she's just gorgeous.

Hilary said...

mmm-hmm. Love her. Super-crush.

Lacey said...

The first time I saw her was in The Fifth Element. It's really the only movie she's in that I "love," but I love it SO MUCH (and just because of her) that it's safe to say I'm smitten. :-)

Michele R said...

I love how you share your crushes. The natural birth link to others is so interesting. Some people you'd never even think of ... such as Pamela Anderson.

just making my way said...

Loooooove 5th Element!! Such a fun flick. Cool chick.

modaspia said...
