I was shocked to see Gabrielle's eyebrows....all I could think about was Groucho Marx. She is a beautiful woman, but her eyebrows are so overpowering to her other features. I don't remember her having these caterpillars in past seasons. Not only do they look too thick, they are too close together...almost a uni-brow. I sincerely hope that a makeup artist will give her a brow makeover....soon!

I understood what was wrong... It's the distance between the eyebrows! Posted Image

Compare those brows to 518 when Fiona turned herself in:

It looks to me like the makeup dept has intentionally penciled-in the front end of her brows to reflect the lack of grooming care when imprisoned. I doubt she would be allowed a pair of tweezers. Even so, Michael still thinks she "looks beautiful."

That was my first thought too, but if you go back to "Scorched Earth," when she'd being walk through the building, her eyebrows are already looking like this. Maybe they got a new make-up artist for the show?

If it is the work of a new make-up artist, and not done for effect, someone needs to have a serious word with this person!


ETA: By the way, Doc -- I want to let you know how much I'm enjoying Apathy; actually made me weep at certain passages. I know you're very busy, but please keep it coming!

Thanks for your kind words! I worked 26 hours yesterday, got off this morning and intended to to work on the story this afternoon. Best laid plans, as they say, LOL! I fell asleep for 4 hours, which ticks me off, because I had things to do. On the other hand, I work another 26 hours tomorrow, so I guess I needed the sleep. Hope to have the next chapter up by Wednesday or Thursday, but we'll see. Thanks again asking!

Having watched 601 with Tilly, I can tell you that she noticed the eyebrow change right away - even before the ep aired, from promos. Her theory was also that there is a new makeup artist - but we checked and saw the same name in the credits as from 518.

My theory was that the eyebrows are less arched and closer set as a way of making Fiona look more severe to reflect her severe situation. To make her less beautiful, as it were. Along with the darker hair color and flatter hairstyle. I think she's supposed to look drab, without her usual vibrancy, because she's in prison.

If I'm right, then we'll see a change when she leaves prison, unless they want to continue the effect for a while during which time Fi suffers some kind of post-traumatic stress from her prison experience. (I have no idea whether they want to have prison affect her once she's out or not, since I don't read spoilers.)

I saw that other people commented but my immediate thought was- she IS in prison. Not exactly like she has a chance to pluck and groom eyebrows...especially when she has someone trying to kill her!

I noticed the dark hair and heavier eyebrows in 5-1 Company Man as well - check out when she and Michael are in bed and chatting after their reunion.

There are already many people who have spoken of the appearance of Fiona but I must say that it ruined the scene of reunion with Michael (for me).
My glance didn't manage to get loose from her eyebrows... Posted Image

If I have to say anything negative about Fi and this moment. Its not the eyebrows, that actually looked normal for a girl leaving prison. I never been to prison or had to go get someone whos being released from prison. I can imagine tho they wouldnt look that good leaving prison. I knew she wore the dress going in and she had to wear it going out. It look more like she was leaving from a photoshoot or something. Her hair blowing in the wind like that. I assume that the guards let them take shower and brush there hair before leaving. I just cant see them lookin like a supermodel is all lol. However its the dramatics of TV and you have to look past the logic of it all. I loved the scene and she looks amazing eyebrows and all.. Thats JMO on the eyebrows. :)

It's not like she had make-up on or anything. I though her look coming out of prison was very compatible with her stay inside.

the eyebrows + dark hair just makes her look older -- yikes! Where's the stylist/makeup artist team.

I'd like to ask in all respect how it makes any sense that we're prohibited from making any observation of a personal nature about Jeffrey Donovan, but it's fine to pick over Gabrielle's personal appearance. Her weight was dissected, probed, analyzed, and discussed in great detail in the past, and now we've started in on her eyebrows. This just doesn't seem right to me.

Is it the fact that Jeffrey is the star and therefore sacrosanct? Is it that he's male and she's female, and females are fair game in our society? If people -- and it happened to me -- were warned about simply pointing out Jeffrey's fiancee's age, I cannot understand why we are allowed free rein to discuss Gabrielle's personal appearance.

Hi,

I believe in the case of GA's eyebrows, people are not really pointing Gabrielle herself but more complaining about the makeup team job. This department has a role in "building" the character's look. They (and the production team) have their word to give when it impacts their character's look. Not sure they would have dyed (not sure of the spelling!) GA's hair in red or would have accepted that she dyes her hair in red because this would have totally changed Fiona's look... Same thing if JD was to suddenly appear on the set (and show) with blonde hair!!

In regards of the age of JD's fiancee, it is not something which impacts the show. His fiancee could be either 20 or 70 and his MW look would stay the same.

I think this is the difference...

During the first few episodes of seaon 5 many fans commented on how they disliked Jeffrey Donovan's longer hair. So how the character, male or female, looks on screen is up for criticism regardless of gender.
