Actress Bijou Phillips is gracing the spread of the Spanish magazine DL and she looks like she's not taking any prisoners.
The seductive blonde, who is yet to become a household name, is captured laying and kneeling on a bed while brandishing a chef's knife and looking straight ahead at her â€œaudienceâ€ in a menacing way.
A caption on the magazine says, "Belleza letal," which means â€œlethal beauty.â€ That sure explains the violence-themed spread!
Implications - Shock tactics are certainly not a new way of attracting audience attention, but they are definitely a proven method of gaining mass appeal. Consumers are constantly looking for the latest in revolutionary items and ideas -- and scare tactics are a great example of this notion. Businesses can benefit from using this method, which has proven to be successful time and time again.
