Can you identify these women ?

 Well... I'm sure you know at least one or two of them  ;-)

 To start with, since the Cannes festival is on at the moment... watch the woman on the first video. She used to go to Cannes and is a worldwide known French actress : soooo... who is she ??
WOMEN  IN  FILM(S)

The painters who created these ones might be harder for you to find...but then, who knows ?!

WOMEN  IN  ART

Philip Scott Johnson is an American "digital artist"
from Saint Louis (Missouri). The 42-year-old director
made these videos in 2007.

Chameleons are always changing their colour !

And now that the whole thing's over... though eventually they didn't prove effective enough, these campaigning videos did look both bright and funny to me. Hope you'll enjoy them as well :)
