Bringing Sexy Back

This is actually one of the more demure Elizabeth Hurley offerings.  Yes, she has a spectacular figure for any woman...espesh a gal at half-century mark and she has bikini biz to help pay the bills.  Of course I find the far too frequent/intimate pics with handsome son creepy.  GSL is a fan of Liz but would counsel she'd gain ten-fold by cutting exposure in half.
GSL can't even leave the house without Liz Hurley throwing her tits in his face.  Nice tits they surely are but wouldn't we all be better served having those well nourished puppies under warmer wrap?  As my Estella would gratefully confirm, GSL is a caboose man although he fully appreciates how a bodacious set of ta-tas can enhance a woman's figure...but's it's usually overdone...way overdone.  Starting with The Den's platform of choice, strappy FMPs, and accessorizing with high waist, tank suit, or pencil skirt adds more va-va-voom than any thong bikini or side-boob halter.  Oversharing is counterproductive.

T & A can't carry the day...it's all about the hustle...

...and the Crazy Rich Asian version...

My Huckleberry Friend

My Estella has long known of GSL's ambition to make the Groundhog's Day pilgrimage to Western Pennsylvania donning stovepipe lid and hip-flask of cask strength bourbon for 6am curtain like the gentlemen below:

Punxsutawney Phil, The Nostradamus of Rodents, didn't see his shadow at Gobbler's Knob this morning resulting in jubilant PA Turnpike snow plow operators booking Caribbean Vacays for early March. No offense Phil, but GSL smells a rat.

Now back to Our Dear Audrey and that exquisitely charming showcase she's best remembered for: Breakfast at Tiffany's that certainly had a few flaws and strayed quite a bit from Truman Capote's novella yet the movie remains one of the most beloved works of Visual Art of the 20th Century and why is that? Well, of course it's Audrey whose luminous screen presence eclipsed every other actress (or actor) in the history of the medium. Her presence was so singularly powerful she overwhelmed any story-line.  If you had to describe her in a word what would it be? Beautiful?Glamorous? Elegant?  Well yes of course all three but none quite get it do they.  Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, and Rita Hayworth were beautiful, glamorous, and elegant but all fell short of Audrey in one key aspect allowing them to play characters quite apart from themselves. You must go into a higher realm to best capture Audrey Hepburn.  It's a realm both men and women appreciate mostly on a subconscious level. Audrey Hepburn was, first and foremost, Lovely and most beautiful, glamorous, and sexy women are not. Lovely is an aspect that exceeds beauty and glamour because it never fades nor recedes with familiarity. A Lovely young woman of 22 is even Lovelier at 62 and still more at 82.  Audrey's presence was so powerful because in addition to being Lovely she was also beautiful, glamorous, and elegant which only enhanced how Lovely she was.

Marilyn Monroe was who Truman Capote and director Blake Edwards thought best suited for the role and she was if a faithful adaptation was paramount. Nobody that watches Breakfast at Tiffany's thinks for a moment that the AH Holly Golightly is really a call girl fucking disgusting old men for money and we all know Marilyn would have vast empirical knowledge to draw from.  Director Blake Edwards wisely doesn't even touch on this absurdity (no silly, the $50 for the powder room isn't a sordid transaction).  The Loveliness of AH carries over to Holly Golightly prompting Gallantry in better men.  Gallantry is the even more rare male counterpart of Loveliness.

Women We Love: Sigrid

Sigrid, The Norwegian Siren.  This is the daughter Estella & GSL never had...or did we? Come clean 'Stel; back in the mid 90s when you hosted GSL during frequent summons to stand for a wedding, might you have tippy-toed into his chambers in the wee smalls for clandestine cuddle?

I stumbled across this little spitfire only a few weeks ago. In case you were wondering what you get if you place GSL in a petri dish and extract Why Chromosome the results are below.

As you can plainly see, no matter the mare, GSL genes assert Toy Bulldog dominance. I know exactly how this charming little vid went down.... Label sets up shoot and sends team. Sigrid shows up in jeans, t-shirt, sneaks: sends choreographer out for coffee, tells director with Kurosawa meets Kubrick film school pretensions to just get proper lighting, point camera, and stay outta the way...."I've got this".
Just try and not watch at least a dozen times in the next week.

Estella did love being GSL's "Plus One" at those many weddings we attended.  GSL would be closing the deal with a cute bridesmaid and a song 'Stella liked would beckon...she then appears just off GSL's left shoulder giving cute bridesmaid "get lost sweetie" smile and realizes every girl's dream....shuckin' & jivin' to Rick James with GSL

Below vid is a fairly accurate representation of 'Stella's dance moves (eye roll isn't even close)....and she looks like Sophie Ellis Bextor too.
