Maria was in Coral Gables today doing a meet and greet with fans the Cole Haan store. You can see pics of the event here, here, and here. She looks way better in these pics than she did at the player party.
Which left me with one conclusion: So you're saying she *didn't* have to look like that?
That said, girl looks WAY better in bright natural light than when she's lit up. She's another one for whom I want to buy a lifetime supply of Creme de la Mer.
