...{LANA LANG (KK): THROUGH THE YEARS PROMO STYLE, BABY!!!}...  

Yet another little smallish project that I thought I would do for the Project Smallville: The Countdown. Since everybody who knows me automatically knows that next to Lex, my favorite female character off the show Smallville is and always will be the lovely Lana Lang, I thought I would post some of my favorite promo-shots of her throughout the seasons, including the Season 6 promo’s that are out in honor of Project Smallville: The Countdown.

The reason I decided to do this is because all too often I feel as if Lana’s character isn’t like that much, because people just can’t seem to understand her and then some just choose not to like her at all, sometimes. I wanted to change that a little bit, if I could and hey, if I can’t – well then I at least had a little bit of fun trying. I’m posting these promo pics for a look back at Lana through the seasons and it’s a small little sneek peek of the collaboration that goodnightsong and I are still currently working on and will hopefully be finished with tomorrow, so that we can post it for all you guys to see it and enjoy it. We’ve put a lot of work into that "supa-sekrit" project, which bop_radar already knows about, so hopefully you guys will enjoy.

Just to re-cap all of the fun and fesitivies that have bee going on during Project Smallville: The Countdown here’s some links to the days events:

Oy! I absolutely love these two particular promo pics from Season 1 of Smallville, because farm!girl Lana was always cute in my book and she looks absolutely stunning in red.

Her smile is just so infectious, seriously. I can’t help but smile myself whenever I see her smile, the way that her little nose crinkles up and her eyes just shine. She’s such a pretty girl.

Thank God she wasn’t wearing a headband in this promo shot, because I just don’t think that I could have taken that. I love how grown-up, but yet so young she looks. She’s come a long way since them, ya know.

Pretty, what else can be said for it except that?

I love the way that she works the blue in these promo’s, they’re absolutely just stunning. Seriously.

And these are absolutely adorable, because they show a completely different side to Lana that not too many people tend to pick up on.

See her workin’ the blue again, seriously. It bodes well with her, she should wear more poppy and bright colors like this – because with her complexion they completely work for her.

See, no pink anywhere in these pics and they were just as stunning as the actress who plays the character herself. I absolutely love them.

I love the fact that she looks a lot more grown-up here than we’ve really gotten to see her so far through the first three seasons. It was nice to see this side of her.

Ooh, Lana…a little on the fence maybe, huh? lol. Still, it’s an amazing promo shot of KK.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


I think this is my absolute favorite promo shot of KK for the character Lana. It was amazing. She looks absolutely golden and stunningly beautiful.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


All I really want to know about this one is how the hell she got her legs to fold like that, rotfl. I did that and I would seriously never get up. Ever. Ha.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


Blue, yet again. I think they’re trying to send a message. rotfl. “Work blue hard, babe! The blue loves you, babe. Make the blue work, babe!”

And these little babies are absolutely beautiful. I cannot think of any other way to describe them, because she looks so put together, grown-up and absolutely stunning.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


I absolutely love that dress that she is wearing and I love the fact that they are choosing darker colors for her and making her more grown-up, sexy and mysterious. It really works for her.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


Just very pretty, there is nothing else that can be said.

These are absolutely my favorite ones, seriously. Because I esp. love the look that she’s giving off in the second one and in the last one, I love the way she’s standing and just looking over to whatever or whoever is standing there with this sexy look on her face. They’re just absolutely amazing and stunning to look at.</center>


Stay tuned for another project collaboration of mine and goodnightsong, which will be posted tomorrow. So be on the look out for that, I can really bet that you don’t want to miss it.

What an amazing thing to do. Unfortunately the coding isn't working for me. But you're awesome.
just a girl: joie&mr (candid) | rock n' roll_touched on September 27th, 2006 04:36 am (UTC)
Check it again, hun. I had a few kinks in the coding, a couple tags that weren't closed. So I think it's going to work now, okay. And thanks. :)
Alicia: kk - vixengoodnightsong on September 27th, 2006 04:55 am (UTC)
Ohhh, lovely post! Thanks for making this. KK is absolutely stunning.

"I feel as if Lana’s character isn’t like that much, because people just can’t seem to understand her and then some just choose not to like her at all, sometimes. I wanted to change that a little bit, if I could and hey, if I can’t – well then I at least had a little bit of fun trying."

Exactly. I mean, many people have good reasons as to why they do not like her, but for many others, I feel as if they just do not take the time to at least try to understand her, see from the other point of view. But hey, what can you do, right? Thanks for making a post like this! It's not too often that I see a post on KK, and this was great fun. :)

My absolutele favorite Lana/KK promo shots are the last four. I love the one of her in the green top and the red highlights in her hair. She definitely looks different there than she has in the earliest promos, growing up a bit more. Not as conservative. I love the S4 promos! So hot, angsty. I think those are my favorites, the ones of her by the gates.

"All I really want to know about this one is how the hell she got her legs to fold like that, rotfl. I did that and I would seriously never get up. Ever."

*snickers* I swear, I find myself sitting like that all the time.

It's not good for the back though. *shakes head*

And then, *sigh* we have the S6 promo shots which I am in absolute love with! I could go on and on, really. But she looks absolutely stunning, and it's so strange looking back and forth between those and the S1 promos. So different, you know? A completele transformation and I love it.

Whoo! Can't wait to get the "supa-sekrit" project posted! We worked hard on this one, but it was fun doing it with you. :)

Awe, thank you so much for your heartfelt and wonderful response to this post. It totally warms my heart to pieces. *hugs*


I'm sure that many people have good reasons not to like KK/Lana, but I guess I just don't understand them quite as well as I probably should, because of the fact that I love her so much. I feel the very same way that you do, that they're not taking enough to time to really try and get to know the character a little better or try and understand her and the reasons why she acts the way she does. Awe thank you.


LOL. I think the last four promo shots of Lana were the favorites of everybody if I were to take a poll, rotfl. I just couldn't let you give off all of the KK love so I had to devise my own mini-little spam of sorts. rotfl. J/K. *winks* But yes, I love the red highlights in her hair and the green top and jeans as well, she looked so amazingly grown up and well put together. It was like, "College Lana" which was so different from the first three seasons of HS!Lana, ya know.


I love the fact that they're being a little more liberal with her on several different levels. And the S4 were really hot and angsty. They were wonderful. :)


I can't sit like that, I sware. It would just absolutely kill me, so maybe you and KK could get together and teach me how to do it so that I don't kill myself and I can actually get back up. rotfl. I didn't think it would be...good for the back, that is. Heh.


Oooh the S6 promos are absolutely love. All of them, the green, the black and the gray-metalish colors. I absolutely love the smokey look that they're giving off, seriously sexy and tough and edgy. And KK seems to really pull it off so well. She is very different from S1 til' S6. Exactly. :)


Oooh and the "supa-sekrit" project has been posted. I've already gotten a couple of responses to it, but not that many yet and hopefully there will be more before it's all over. Do you want to go over to DTS and post the link to it in a KK thread and also in a Lana thread for me, if you don't mind. LOL. I've already posted in other the other comms and stuff like that...so if you could do the message boards that would help me out tremendously. :)

Awe, you're more than welcome for it, hun. It was really no problem at all, because I love posting anything that has to do with KK/Lana. I, too, also think there's several reasons why fandom tends to bash Lana, but that doesn't necessarily mean that I agree with them - because I don't think there's any reason at all to do it to any character. I mean I get snarky about some of the other characters myself, but I would never openly be as intentionally mean or downright hateful towards them as people have been to Lana/KK at all. But you're right and I digress, it's too involved ot get into it here. :)


And I'm glad that you do share in the KK/Lana love. That makes me a little bit happy. *g* I'm still trying to do that and I think I'm going to need to do that with Lexana, because it's getting to the point that it's making me physically ill and when it does that...it's time to just let it go, ya know. *g* Awe, yeah...I agree. :)


Oooh, I just posted the "sekrit" post. It was a Lana Lang: Through The Years fan mix that goodnightsong and I collaborated on. You should definitely go check out my latest post, d/l and snag some of the icons that goodnightsong made. *g*

Awe, well thank you so much for the compliment on it. I can't wait to hear what you think about the song selection. Feel free to d/l as much as you want. :)


Oh well I won't hold the Clana against you, lol, because I know some people whom I care about that adore the Clana - but at least you redeem yourself through Clex, so something can be said for that. rotfl. And you tolerate Lexana...and you're not mean about them, like some are. So yay. :)


Yeah, me too. That's partially why I centered this around Lana, Lexana and all that. :)

I've never understood the KK hate, but I think it had more to do with her character Lana Lang and how the writers portrayed her on SV. As far as I'm concerned with KK and Lana there is no "to each their own" in my world, because I find ridiculous that people can't even try and open up and figure out what a character is about before they doom them to hatred forever.


Awe, thanks a lot. I absolutely love the pics too. I guess that's kinda why I chose to use them and all. I really wanted to spread some more Lana/KK love around, because there is seriously not enough of it. And thanks a lot. The S6 promo pics are absolutely my favorite ones. She looks so edgier, tougher and more grown up and mysterious. I love the dark!Lana that they're giving us. Even though I still miss some of the light Lana as well.


As far as the pink issue goes concerning Lana, it really irritates me when people bitch about the obsessive amount of pink that she wore in S3, because it wasn't Lana's fault the wardrobe people decided to do that. I actually liked seeing her in pink sometimes, because I think that's a really good color on KK and that's really all it is...just a color. So what's the big deal about it? Seriously. I just don't get it, I guess and I never will so there's no point in debating it.


KK is really a world of awesome. Hee. Ooh and also please check out my latest post, where I posted a Lana Lang: Through The Years fan mix - I think you're really going to enjoy it and you might like some of the songs on it. *hugs* Also, there's some icons there that goodnightsong made that are snaggable and good for use as long as credit is given. :)
Laura ☂: sv: KKCWstarryeyedmagic on September 27th, 2006 05:50 am (UTC)
great post! KK is just so gorgeous.

You know what's sad? Before I started watching the show I pretty much expected to hate Lana because I had constantly heard tons of negative stuff about her. And sure she annoys me at times (because all the characters except Lex do annoy me at times) but I've always liked her. And I've grown to like her more and more. Now she's one of my favorite characters.

I also love that she no longer wears an obsessive amount of pink. lol
I'm all for the darker side of Lana.
just a girl: lexana (sv) | sleeping beauty_touched on September 27th, 2006 08:07 pm (UTC)
Awe, thank you so much. KK is really beautiful, in just that natural way, ya know. :)


Ugh! See, that's the thing about most people who don't like Lana that really bugs me, just because they hear a lot of negative energy and comments about her - they decide they don't want to like her, long before they even try and figure her character out. I'm actually glad that you came around and that you are a fan of her and she's turned out to be one of your favorite characters on the show - but so many aren't as open as you are and I wish they would be.


Of course, don't get me wrong, just because I love Lana doesn't mean I don't get irritated with her as well - because there are times when I definitely do. Well and the other thing that irritates me is when people complain about Lana and the pink. I mean, it's like what's the big deal, it's just a color and Lana couldn't help it that the wardrobe people had her character wearing an obsessive amount of it, I happen to think that KK/Lana looks great in pink - but I'm also glad that now theyr'e going for the more tougher, edgier, darker and mysterious colors that make her a lot more grown up. :)


Yeah, I like the darker side of Lana too - but I don't want them to get rid of the lighter side of her either. I love all facets of Lana, and oh btw, I posted a Lana Lang fan mix in my latest post. You might want to check that out. *g* There's also icons that goodnightsong made to go along with it that's snaggable as long as credit is given of course. Hee. :)

Kristin Kreuk is too pretty! I'm jealous of her prettyness! AHH.

She definitely is so very pretty, rotfl, but I'm a little bias because I think she's a lot prettier than AM. *g* I can't help it, I think it's the hair and the complection of the skin and her eyes and smile that just draw me in - god, she's just so damn shiny. Hee. :)

Awe, well thank you so much. I had a lot of fun putting this together. *g* Ya know, if I looked like KK - I would definitely be looking for a dress like the one she was wearing in that pic. Here's to hoping that yu find one. :)

There should seriously be more posts like this and the KK picspam Alicia did. It makes this L/Ler and KK/Lana fan smile. Oh, and I love that pic of her in the little black dress. I don't think I saw that one yet. However, I remember the others and that promo pic of her sitting on the hay and the one at the fence from S1. She was so young, then. What? 18, 19? I look back then and how much she's matured today. Beautiful girl then, beautiful young woman now. Thanks for doing this.

Awe, well I'm really glad that you enjoyed this so much. It makes my little KK/LL/Lexana fan-girl heart go twitter-pat. rotfl. *g* I absolutely adore the KK picquotespam that Alicia did, seriously. It's THE best one that's EVER been done.


I know, isn't that little black dress just pretty? I love how she looks so mysterious and dark in it, but so sultry and sexy as well. Heh. She's come a long way since the early days of Smallville and I'm glad that they're finally letting her character grow up a little bit, instead of letting it just pass her by, ya know.


I know, I sit and I marvel at the younger pics that were done of her vs. the ones that were done just recently and I can't help but think, wow, just wow. Ya know. Very beautiful girl to a very beautiful woman, indeed. You took the words right out of my mouth, heh. :)


Awe and thank you for such high praise and compliments.

Dear, wow! This is such a great job put together. And how much has this girl changed in the past 6 years?

She went from girl to a woman right before us. Just is just so pretty she should be banished from the face of the Earth for making us, normal people, look so... boring and normal! LOL!
just a girl: joey&rachel (friends) | friends otp_touched on October 3rd, 2006 04:19 am (UTC)
Awe, thanks a lot, hun. *g* I know, right. She went from like the young girl next door to a stunning beautiful woman over the course of the last six years. And I'm just completely ecstatic that SV are finally allowing her character, Lana, to grow up and become more mature.


rotfl. My sentiments exactly. :)
