I always feel kind of like a sucker when I write up a post praising an ad — which is, after all, simply a vehicle to get me and you to buy stuff of dubious value — but I don't want to have to justify why you should watch the Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll Mascara commercial (oy) starring Cara Delevingne, embedded below. Whether or not you approve of the British model's hyped up It girl status (or her "caterpillar-like" eyebrows), I bet you can imagine how well her goofy sense of humor and facial plasticity (or whatever … she makes silly faces) works in a beauty ad. When I initially heard about this Cara D. / YSL contract, I even made this joke: "I will buy ten tubes [of the brand's mascara] if they let her make funny faces." I'm glad I followed that hilarity up by saying, "Actually, no I won't," because otherwise I'd be 300 mascara dollars in the hole.
