Insert Eye Related Pun Here
Alexis Bledel, you deserve a song about your eyes.
1) From a distance, in everything from professional photo shoots to TV appearances to old Gilmore Girls reruns, you cannot deny just how stunning they are. Like the perfect shade of ocean blue. Natural and gorgeous.
2) When I think of stars with great eyes, my thoughts tend to drift in the direction of Elizabeth Taylor (she of the violet hue), David Bowie (one blue and the other green) and Bette Davis (you really can't compose a list without her). Davis got a song for her peepers, entitled "Bette Davis Eyes" sung by the wonderful Kim Carnes.
By the way, Leighton Meester covered that song recently. Save your ears the 3 minutes and something seconds. Some songs just should not be covered.
I really can't think of any stars in my generation with remarkable eyes. Alexis could definitely get a song written about her and it would be a hit. Guaranteed.
If you had it performed by mopey guys with lots of product in their hair and lyrics composed of lines such as "craving the swollen splinter/I too fell into her clutches of silken winter" then it would be the hipster anthem of the decade. Just saying.
3) If Robert Rodriguez decides that in an entirely black and white film with minimal splashes of color, that your eyes get to be one of the few shades to grace the darkened room, then I'd say your eyes have it. Most definitely.
Love to you all,
