There’s no better way to launch a new product than with four famous celebrities at your side. Such was the case when OPI unveiled GelColor in October with a star-studded ad campaign featuring Carol Burnett, Cyndi Lauper, Jane Lynch and Anna Paquin. "They were some of the most fun OPI photo shoots I’ve ever worked on," said OPI Art Director Brenda Rogers. "I especially loved working with Carol Burnett—out entire crew could not stop laughing! She is so down to earth and naturally beautiful—the perfect.
There is also another advert featuring Cyndi Lauper adorned in the OPI shade Alpine Snow. Currently in the US edition of More Magazine February 2012.
Cyndi Lauper is set to do a one night concert at Smart Araneta Coliseum in Manila on March 17th, 2012! I'm starting to market and promote her concert together with her concert production. I'm also planning to do a Cyndi Lauper Exhibit since a music bar is doing a Lauper special on late February. I would like to call Lauper fans with excess, spare collections (pictures, CDs, posters, Cyndi Dolls, etc) so I could include and add them in the exhibit. In exchange, i will send you exclusive pictures of Cyndi Lauper's press con in Philippines plus all exclusive press releases, posters, flyers, articles and concert pics. This is really high time for Cyndi Lauper fans to unite.
Please email me on this ad for more info and if you could extend assistance for the first Cyndi Lauper Exhibit :

Forget, for a moment, about the gypsy clothes, raspberry-pink hair, costume jewelry, and hyperactive behavior. No female artist’s debut better epitomized MTV’s vivid heyday and the smart intersection of self-reliant female politics, savvy hooks, and vibrant imagery than Cyndi Lauper’s She’s So Unusual. Long before Lady Gaga, and before Madonna embraced any traits resembling punk, the New York native ushered in a new wave of commercial pop while flaunting an exuberant confidence that, overnight, influenced a generation to dye their hair and embrace life with newfound vibrancy. Girls, indeed, just wanted to have fun.
Mastered on Mobile Fidelity’s internationally acclaimed mastering system and pressed at RTI, this Silver Label LP rescues the music from long-standing harshness and disadvantageous brittleness. Back on vinyl for the first time in decades, the multi-platinum 1984 blockbuster sounds completely anew, possessing crisper beats, a fleshed-out midrange, no artificial ceilings, and a clear alleyway to Lauper’s girlish voice. Finally, the sonics possess the wide spectrum of colors that flavor the songs.
Helmed by the anthem “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” She’s So Unusual transformed pop culture by way of Lauper’s charismatic personality, whimsical attitude, lively performances, unique timbre, witty humor, and unabated passion. Throughout, she’s a whirlwind of emotion and cyclone of spirit, tackling insouciant party tracks with the same verve she sings arresting ballads. And while for most it would be a deterrent, Lauper sculpts her chirpy, bop-friendly voice to her advantage, underscoring each song’s combination of sentimentality and seditiousness.
“With a voice that combined the cartoon soul of Little Eva and the wink-wink naughtiness of Betty Boop, Lauper may have backed away from the depth or urgency of the writers whose work she mainstreamed, but her transformation of their power into sheer pop was ultimately subversive—giggling all the way, she incited legions of mall rats into orange-hair rebellion and a measure of self-assertion,” wrote Paul Evans for The New Rolling Stone Album Guide, hinting at the record’s normally unseen depth.
Whether viewed as a subversive new-wave crossover statement or simply as a celebratory declaration of individualism (or, both), She’s So Unusual is an 80s landmark and influential harbinger of the role women would play in both rock and pop.
