Eye candy

Inspired by Renegade's gorgeous tribute(s)

(thank you!)

as well as by a comment by Cassandra Says at the end of this post, from the other blog
(i really need to update more often).

First of all, the baby Diana Rigg from "Tipping the Velvet," aka Rachel Stirling: (on the right)

Then I started thinking about pretty let's say genderfuck candy from some other movies.

Here's a still from an obscure movie called Journey to Kafiristan:

Another movie I'm awfully fond of, Stage Beauty, with Billy Crudup as the last of the male "actresses" and Clare Danes as the first woman to take the stage, during the Restoration:

To wrap up, a bit more Rachel Stirling:

and, what the hell, some Diana herself:

ZOMG I lurvvvvv me some 'Tipping the Velvet'. And when I was little my plan was to grow up to be Diana Rigg!

Stop reading my mind!

I'd be a lesbian if women were men.

genderfuck = objectively hawt.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

I don't have to be a lesbian to appreciate Diana Rigg, right?

Veronica said...

I love Stage Beauty. But, I never saw the third part of Tipping the Velvet.

Cassandra Says said...

Thanks for filling in the visuals...not quite as hot as her mother, but not bad at all.
Ah, these are the moments when I'm delighted to be bi. Doubles the avaliability of lust objects.

Awww, she's holding a ball python. So *cute*. Look at that little belly!

Also, I have still not learned to do eyeliner like this without looking like a complete fool. Dammit.

Tipping The Velvet's fab. Have you read the book by Sarah Waters? Her other books are brilliant too.

God, that's hot. And I really need to rent "Stage Beauty."

Have you see the BBC's "Fingersmith," which is also a Sarah Waters?

Emma Peel was the first female character I wanted to be. ^^ I was so sad I didn't meet her until I was a teenager; I wasted years wanting to be Sherlock Holmes, Merlin, and Robin Hood. ;)

I will need to check out "Stage Beauty". I've never heard of it.

You missed Annie Oakley????

Goodness, I can't tell you how many years I felt shame over finding Diana Rigg attractive, just gorgeous to see her.
