Alyssa Milano has always looked like a Disney princess, and as it turns out, The Little Mermaid is actually based on what she looked like as a child!
Wednesday on The Wendy Williams Show, the 40-year-old actress was asked point-blank, “Were you the inspiration for this character [Ariel]?”
“I actually was,” Milano replied, smiling about the iconic 1989 movie. “I didn’t know that when it was going on, but they asked me to host the making of The Little Mermaid and it came out there that the drawing and likeness of The Little Mermaid was based on pictures of me from when I was younger, which is so cool!”
“Doesn’t that just make you want to dye your hair red and wear a clamshell bra all the time?” Williams asked.
“Yes,” Milano quipped. “That’s how I walk around at home.”
Hopefully in a house filled with gadgets and gizmos a-plenty, whozits and whatzits galore, and thingamabobs—at least 20.
Good day netters! I have even more exciting news for y’all today. Apparantly, Alyssa is going to expand her clothing line “TOUCH by Alyssa Milano” this summer, adding an 16 frame “Touch by Alyssa Milano Eyewear collection” to it. I’ve posted an article releated to it below, which also sums up a couple of her current projects. It’s a good read for sure! Alyssa also did a beautiful photoshoot to promote the glasses, which I have added to our galleries.
Mistresses is looking to be one of this summer’s favorite guilty pleasures, and Alyssa Milano plays Savi Davis, a lawyer on the partner track at work whose marriage has gone stale and is struggling with her attraction for her coworker.
With the classic long-running series Who’s the Boss and Charmed behind her, Alyssa Milano continues to grow as an actor while managing successful brand, Touch by Alyssa Milano. Additionally, she is known for her commitment to philanthropic work.
Alyssa Milano has also been named as the new host of Project Runway: All Stars when its third season makes it debut. Beyond her Touch by Alyssa Milano eyewear and clothing line, Alyssa’s participation in the Project Runway: All Stars franchise demonstrates her interest in the next generation of emerging American designers.
Alyssa Milano’s next foray into design includes her 16 frame Touch by Alyssa Milano eyewear collection, coming this summer exclusively to Coastal.com.
Designed for a fun and fearless woman, the Touch eyewear collection is an extension of Alyssa’s casual, sultry style. The blend of modern acetate and colors and the vintage inspired elements of high temples, cat eye slants and modified wayfarer shapes are an ideal feminine blend.
These are just a few of our favorite styles from the collection – whose launch we are eagerly awaiting.
– A cool wayfarer glasses frame is given new life with hints of purple – drawing attention to the eyes when they hit the light.
– Cat eye glasses are back, and provide feminine appeal in a flattering brown shade.
– A rectangular frame is freshened up with high temples and a unique layered acetate with a tortoiseshell accent.
