i spy

Game of Thrones-inspired fashion, 1930s delinquents, and Helen Mirren wrapped in the flag--just a few of the images that grabbed me last month.  I think I need to get a copy of W to see the rest of these "Dame of Thrones" photos.  I also cannot believe I've never seen Intermezzo, and must remedy that soon.  I adore both Ingrid Bergman and Leslie Howard, and the image of the two of them on the poster is so lovely.

  1. I think you'd like to see Richard Armitage in the flag. or not in the flag....

    1. Oh girl. You know it's true. Either way, with or without!

  2. Helen Mirren is amazing.

    And if you ever see a pic of Richard Armitage in a flag… send it my way! ;)

  3. I want to be friends with those girls.

  4. Have now added these delinquents to my "fashion inspiration" list along with Anna Karina, Jeanne Moreau and Katharine Hepburn.
