Biggest Beauty Headlines of 2008: Ellen DeGeneres Signs With CoverGirl

It was all kind of hush, hush at first and the rumors were swirling like crazy. No, I'm not talking about Heidi and Spencer's big nuptials. I'm talking about the Ellen DeGeneres' CoverGirl deal. And when the news was finally confirmed, it got people talking.

In a forward thinking move, the 50-year-old company paired up with a 50-year-old woman, making the comedic lady its spokesperson. It's so refreshing to see the drugstore cosmetics giant take steps towards showing that beauty comes in all types and ages, for that matter. Kudos, CoverGirl, for your modern take on the beauty biz.

I love Ellen, this is perfect for her. Her show is wonderful and she is hilarious. Did you see her show the other day? funniest moments of 2008, great when the Vizio fell over.

Sorry but Ellen doesn't look like a Cover Girl to me. She looks good for 50 though.

She looks great for 50! Kudos to her for being chosen by Cover Girl, and proof that laughter maybe does really keep us young.

Why the hell not. Good woman, pleasant face, generally a positive presence in the universe. Some soft lighting and mascara on her would not an unattractive photo make.

These commercials are so cheesey already, I hope they let her make it funny, at least. - not sure it'll sell any make-up though.

Wow. I'm pretty surprised. I mean, I don't really consider Ellen a "pretty" woman, by any means, conventional or otherwise. Her skin is okay, I guess. She's definitely not fashion-forward. Should be an interesting journey for her and for CoverGirl. Perhaps they're trying to reach out to women in their 40's and 50's? That's my take.
