Good Morning Richard Armitage!

I absolutely adore Richard Armitage being interviewed for GMTV.

Good Morning indeed!!!

You’d be in your right to see this as one long interview, as RA is sporting similar clothes and you were probably too fixated on him to notice that the presenter sitting next to him was, in fact, a different person.

This was brought to my attention by Jasrangoon in a post about what RA habits she found endearing.

The first in from March, 2009

The second interview is from May 2010

I would have loved to include an interview from 2011 and 2012, alas, our love has abandoned us and gone into audio and visual blackout.

I adore both of these.

They embody the best of Lucas, with the dark sexy hair and muscles that you could bounce ping-pong balls off.

The clothes are clearly from North’s closet. I doubt anyone helped RA choose his outfit, as they would have noticed how similar the dark shirt and jeans was to the light shirt and jeans one from the previous year.

I adore the roller up sleeves, which underline the cool, calm and collected attitude of the wearer.

‘I’m sexy and I know it’

And, boy, don’t we know it!!!

The guy looks so good he could scramble ovaries!

The impossible question for today is:

What look do you prefer?

I know it’s a difficult one and will require you to spend some time gawking at the images… I meaning doing your research thoroughly 😉


British fashion stamps

I found there really stunning. They are a great reason to send someone a letter 😉


Wow… there’s something about the British that makes them sartorial sensations (think: prim hats, demure gloves, liberty pattern). So when something even as tiny as stamps come out, you can expect big names to jump on. The Great British Fashion Stamp Set, launched byThe Royal Mailservice, honors 10 top fashion houses from England, including amazing Alexander McQueen, Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood, and the like.
The entire series was created by London-based graphic designer Johnson Banks, who worked together with sought-after fashion photographer Sølve Sundsbø. The duo used live models to created dynamic postures and a sense of movement on the stamps, then later removing them from the final shot. The end result?… you´re about to check!

I am easily satisfied with the very best.Winston Churchill

Sensation of Young British Artists- an Introduction

In 1999, when I was living in New York, something quite unusual happened.

The media were commenting on an art exhibition that was to be opened in Brooklyn.

The unusual part was that it was followed by protestors and even the mayor, Rudolph Giuliani criticised it.

The exhibition, Sensation, was a collection of contemporary art owned by Charles Saatchi and features Young British Artists.

It first took place in the Royal Academy of Art in London, then toured to Berlin.

I can now say it was one of the most important and meaningful art experiences in my life, and can only really be compared with the Tamara Lempicka exhibition at the Royal Academy in London.

I am thankful that I was fortunate enough to experience it and was able to appreciate it.

Some artwork was really shocking.

Some, I felt, delivered a cheap thrill, but others really changed the way you interpreted life.

The exhibition was accompanied with a CD commentary by David Bowie.

I can’t imagine a better choice!

There were some very powerful pieces, too many to include in one post.

Therefore, all this week I am planning to write about artists that really influenced me and left a lasting impression.

I do, however, have to attach a warning to the posts connected to Sensation.

Although I don’t think my choices are vulgar, they are not for the fainthearted.

Therefore, people of delicate sensibilities should make up their own minds whether to read the posts or not.

They will contain images of nudity and themes that some may find disturbing!

I hope you enjoy!
