I know, I know…It’s a bit embarrassing to admit, but when I was a kid watching Star Trek, I found The Shatner all kinds of hot. I wouldn’t have been able to say exactly why: perhaps because I found him, dashing, masterful, cheeky and just plain a bit of alright. When he wasn’t issuing commands in halting tones, he was wrestling monsters using polystyrene rocks, or getting it on with beautiful- but- evil- women- with- amazing- hairdos, who often turned out to be able to morph into man-eating monsters. That he would then wrestle. Since those days he’s had his ups and downs, and now seems to make a living taking the piss out of himself. But to me, he’ll always be the only real Captain of the StarShip Enterprise. Sigh.

Dame Elizabeth passed away on the 23rd, so I am a bit behind in posting, but it’s been one of those weeks. Taking a look at different pictures, I am just blown away by her old school beauty and glamour. She truly was a star and a legend who lived life large and to the full. Do they make them like that anymore? I posted this picture, rather than one of the many studio portraits of her, because I liked her beauty and look when she got just a little more mature. It seemed more wild, lusher, than when she was gorgeous partly just by being young, more full blown and lived in, and showing more of her large personality and spirit. I will post some other thumbnails that I like, mostly more candid shots also. RIP Elizabeth Taylor, you made the world sparkle like your diamonds, and you and your work will be fondly remembered.
As much as I love Dolly, I seriously have to question her hair choices over the years. However, she may not be entirely to blame – when questioned during an interview, she admitted that she didn’t know how long it took to get her hair ready for a show, as she was never there. Ah, the wonder that is a teased wig.
Brought to you George Michael’s eyebrows (not longer a mono) and Andrew Ridgley’s EuroTan.
