Coleen McLoughlin: Keeping It Real

image

Dear Kickettes, please cast your eyes over the promo pic for Coleen McLoughlin’s new fragrance, Coleen X, which was launched at Le Meridien in London yesterday.

Does it seem like anything is missing from this photo?  Like, oh, say half of her body?

No? Just us then.

Before granting her seal of approval, Coleen tested the fragrance out on boyfriend Wayne Rooney and her mates.  It will retail for £19.99 all across the universe, starting with Selfridges next month.

In other unrelated, unironic news, Coleen’s new TV show, “Coleen’s Real Women”, will be airing soon on ITV.

The Mirror says:

“McLoughlin will pitch healthy size 16 girls against scrawny professional models to compete for a contract with the Ultimo lingerie firm.

An insider has revealed that the 21-year-old is set to confront the ‘image-obsessed society’ and help real women get high profile advertising and modelling jobs.

“Coleen is on a mission to challenge the image-obsessed society we live in and put real women into high profile advertising and modelling jobs. She’s been inspired by the Dove ads and thinks it’s time to turn the tables on size zero culture. With her profile there is no one better to do it,” the source added.

  1. Wow, this was a really nice post. In thought I want to put in writing like this moreover – taking time and actual effort to make a very good article… however what can I say… I procrastinate alot and in no way appear to get one thing done. Harga iPhone Terbaru

    A very pretty woman in reality . I have seen her at “Coleen's Real Women” ,a good media production.

    What a nice topic. While watching TV, everyone would like to watch a real show but not a poor performance. To make a good person, only good outside is not enough, and it is the truth while making a show. Taking some natural healthy girls instead of models is a right choice.

    So she is Wayne Rooney’s girlfriend…I knew I should become a footballer. Gee…

    love the site

  9. Looking forward to watching this as I like Coleen. She does not dress up in designer clothes, high heels and over the top make-up to just going shopping. Hope it is a success for her, currently reading her book which she says is about her not her life story as she has only just started her life.

  11. very interesting…

  12. hrjekhktelwnhgjwln says:

    jesus christ

    listen to u all doesnt matter what size she is no need to slate her,whats she ever done thats so wrong

    jelousy is a main factor i think

  13. duuh says:

    the picture is totally photoshopped.
    i think it’s kind of disgusting if she’s sitting there with this new show that is accepting larger women and then she turns around lets this LARGELY photoshopped picture of her help promote her new perfume. it’s just rather disappointing and very blah of her.
    I’m sure she has the power to say to the photographers not to photoshop her picture. I mean i’m not bashing her “womanly-ness” it’s just that it’s disappointing that her new perfume is being promotoed by that particular picture.

  14. Tammyv says:

    Hugomom thanks that pics proves what I was saying.. She looks a very similar size in both pics.

    About her smile… erm… she often smiles like
    that… she reminds me a bit of a pig. Like she’s just letting out a enormous snort of laughter. It ain’t too pretty…

    I don’t see why WAG’s got to release their own perfumes… haha! It’s so “wannabe”, someone ought to remind them they’re not really famous for anything else than being a footballer’s girlfriend…

  19. Robin says:

    I once saw a program about how they retouch and retool all pictures for magazine shoots. It’s amazing how with the click of a button the model’s legs are suddenly several inches longer, the face is suddenly spot free, the hair is just right. I don’t think ANY of these pics are anything like the real person. It’s like when they shoot movies and the male actor is shorter than the female so they work with angles and sometimes actually have them stand on things. None of it is real.

  20. uneditedmara says:

    Her pose looks stiff. It’s as if she’s prepared to defend in the wall against a free kick.

  21. Soda Pop says:

    Mehhh!!
    Airbrushed.

  22. tammyv says:

    all publicity photos are airbrushed, but if you look at the size of her side front to back she does not look “small” or waif-like.  For that to occur, she would be almost invisable from the side (ie Kate Moss)  She is not.

    They used optical illusions to elongatre her and make her look more willowy. Both the long, stright arm and the flowers at the front of her waist to draw attention to her arm and way from the size of her waist.

  23. Paula says:

    The photo is airbrushed. Without question.
    Coleen is a size 16. In my book that means she’s fat.

    • danielle says:

      fat??? just because shes a size 16!!!!! someone who is a healthy size 16 can look just as nice as a size 8 if not better in some clothes

  24. tammyv says:

    Colleen does not look like she lost any weight from airbrushing.  IF you look at the candid, she does not have pouch but she has wide hips which they tried to minimize by shooting her from the side and accentuated with the long straight arm.  That makes everything look longer and straighter. 

    She still has a normal/heathy sized side profile.

  25. Helena says:

    Coleen may be concerned about the size 0 culture, but she didn’t exactly no to looking like a airbrushed-waif-thin-big busted goddess, did she?!

    I just clicked on to enlarge the 2nd inset photo of Coleen. She’s only 21 but with those bad crows feet around the eyes, she looks 41.

  26. buzzybee says:

    Paula, Coleen is not a size 16! i’ve seen her before and i would say she is a size 8 or ten. definitly not a 16. get your facts right next time
