the catalog says:

They define success. They define confidence. They define determination. Avon asked Venus and Serena Williams to define beauty. Wait until you hear what they have to say.

Avon: What makes a woman beautiful?
Venus: I think beauty is definitely feeling good in your skin. Knowing that what you think of yourself and how you can see yourself is what counts.
Serena: Inner confidence. Walking with your head up and shoulders back. Just have a lot of self-confidence. It think that's a beautiful thing.

Avon: Do you ever give each other beauty advice?
Venus: Well, we definitely give each other advice... it's almost like a signal that we do to each other. She'll do something like flick my hair, I'll say, "Is something wrong with my hair?" We're totally honest, and if something doesn't look right, we definitely advise each other because we love each other.

Avon: What is your definition of beauty?
Venus: Whatever it is about a person that's individual. There's something really beautiful in everybody. What defines someone's beauty is what's special about them...not being a stereotype of the latest thing...or fitting a mold. :eek:

"I kind of grew up on Avon really...it's always been a part of our lives." Serena Williams

Thank you for the pics. I think I was expecting them to be....different. They look sort of the same as other ads to me

Good post and nice pics.

But how funny is it to see SERENA wearing a bracelet worth $4.99? LOL :)

Tee-Rexx I know what you mean, but I also can really see them wearing Avon as well and not just selling the product. Some things in this world we will always buy no matter if we have 100 million dollars in the bank or not.

I am going to buy some avon this month.:)

Excellent photos! :) The Williams sisters are doing great on and off the court! But it's too bad Black fashion models aren't yet big players in cosmetics. :( Will it ever change? For instance, Bevery Peele was one of the top fashion models in the world for many years. She's beautiful, spectacular and likable. But she didn't have the long term success she should have. She should still be one of the top models in the world. But she has dissappeared. Beverly also was natural for the Sport's Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. But only modeled in one issue. :confused: It's great that the Williams sisters are doing so well in the endorsement world. But will it have any carryover effect into the modelling world? I doubt it.

Nice pics.

If anyone comes to me with an Avon catalogue, I start running from that cheap shit.

I'm not sure what reputation Avon has in the U.S, but I doubt Serena and Venus will still be buying it.

isnt it a bit weird for them to be doing ads for avon?:confused:

Feb 27th, 2003, 01:26 PM
That is cool. My aunty is an Avon lady too. I dont think Avon is that bad like some people are saying. Sometimes they have good stuff.

Feb 27th, 2003, 01:51 PM
They look gorgeous!:)

I never use to buy Avon but since V/S started representing Avon I but it all the time. Avon has really great product.
