As Loretta has reported earlier this week, we've been in the deadline-doldrums. Yet whilst toiling hard on our manuscripts, there's no real reason why we can't take tiny breaks to wander around the internet (which is how we discovered Loubie-Barbie.)
One of our fav sites to look at -- quite literally, because there's not a whole lot of text -- is The Sartorialist, a visual "diary" of street-style around the world by renowned fashion photographer Scott Schuman. Sometimes when mired in a thousand words, one gorgeous picture is all it takes to shake the muse lose. The Sartorialist is also the title of Schuman's own first book, a delight for anyone who enjoys fashion, individuality, people-watching, and photography, as the TNHGs most definitely do.
Recently The Sartorialist raved about a new book of photographs of actor Cary Grant. Apparently it takes the French to produce the best illustrated book about an English actor who made his fortune in America...but that's a blog for another day. What struck us was the cover of this book, reminding us of the astonishing male beauty and style of Cary Grant. Since Cary was born in 1904, we think we can include him here.
Besides, we're quite certain that had Archibald Alexander Leach been born in 1604, or 1704, 0r 1804, he still would have epitomized a certain kind of manly perfection. Sigh.
