"Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa." That's how we might've have reacted to Miley Cyrus' latest move. No, not her gingham onesie from Miley Cyrus: Unplugged. We're talking about her semi-naked cover for W, which just leaked, where all that’s between her and the camera is a pillow and about five pounds worth of silver bracelets and rings. But, in reality, we’re kind of more like "ooooh." Maybe we’re one too many twerking episodes past being shocked by anything Miley does nowadays. Between her infamous Terry Richardson shoot (yes, the one where she showed off the front-thong to Rihanna's denim thong) and her "Adore You" video, which got her banned from French daytime TV, we have seen a lot of Miley's skin. But, also, on the Miley spectrum, this is pretty tasteful shot.

Do you guys notice something a little ~off~ in this picture? Is it that Miley Cyrus is resting what are probably red lipsticked lips on Miranda Kerr's white cut-out shoulder dress? Maybe you're asking yourself, "Why are Miranda and Miley hanging out in the first place?" Or maybe, just maybe, it's because MILEY CYRUS HAS NO EYEBROWS. THEY ARE GONE. ADIOS. SAYONARA. GOOD DAY.
Miley posted her new look to Instagram early this morning and, like, are her eyebrows even there? Did she shave them off entirely? In the photo with Miranda, you can see the outline of what was once a brow (RIP). The black-and-white filter isn't helping distinguish what is there and what isn't (we're onto you, Miley), but if you tilt your screen to different angles and/or squint, you can make out some very bleached eyebrows. They're still there, guys, PHEW: they're just so light they blend in with her skin color.

For his graphic, over-the-top Fall 2011 editorials, Tom Ford tapped Victoria Secret model Candice Swanepoel to be his high-fashion subject. But the South African stunner happens to be missing a little something...and it certainly isn't her VS angel wings. Ditching the full-eyebrowed look of the winter, it appears more and more editorial spreads are going browless by bleaching the little patches we so rely on to emote.
The spread (shot by duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott who are renowned for their steamy, high-contrast photography) follows the trend set forth in both the Michelle Williams cover of Interview Magazine and the W Magazine issue featuring Beyoncé—pigment-less supercilium, or, you know, bleach-y eyebrows. Is this a trend that is going to sweep the streets, or are lightened eyebrows just an editorial fad meant for us to ogle (and not copycat)? We spoke to Wella Color Ambassador & colorist at Serge Normant Salon Aura Friedman to see just how faint we can go.
