Fashion model and celebrity Anna Umemiya, 37, received an award for best eyebrows on a female celebrity recently at an event held in Yurakucho by eyebrow guru Anastasia Soare.
Widely referred to as "The Definite Brow Expert," Anastasia flew from Beverly Hills to Japan for several events and to dispatch her advice on the Japanese eyebrow scene.
Umemiya was given an award titled "Besuto mayu nisuto" - chosen for having the nicest eyebrows among Japanese female celebrities. Anastasia gave her the award and lavished her with praise, describing her as the Japanese Jennifer Lopez.
Umemiya, wearing a short pink piece that showed off her fine set of legs, said she was very happy to be chosen, adding: "I used to have a big complex about my eyebrows. In high school, they were three times thicker than they are now, and people used to call me (Donald) McDonald."
Actor Shigeki Hosokawa, 38, won an award called "Sumato mayu nisuto," given to the male celebrity with the most stylish eyebrows. Anastasia said he was the Japanese David Beckham.
Anastasia will also hold a special eyebrow event on the third floor of the Tobu Ikebukuro department store on Sunday from 2.30 p.m.© Japan Today
