Got tux?

So I can’t decide if this new Got Milk? ad featuring Glenn Close is really awesome or really scary. (’Cause, uh, is it just me or does she look kind of dead?) Still, I’m inclined to say awesome because girlfriend is filling out that tuxedo shirt like nobody’s business. What can I say, I’m a sucker for a woman in a suit. Particularly a tux. Particularly a well-tailored tux. All images of such are prone to cause sudden and acute weakening in the knee area. I think it’s safe to say there is sufficient empirical evidence to back up my claims. Just, make sure you’re sitting down before examining my research. I don’t want any lawsuits.

Concorddawn is that Emma Pierson sitting next to Rachel in that photo? If it isn't then I'm convinced it's her identical twin who got separated at birth.

Slym said...

P.S. Those pics are so good that I forgot to comment on Glen. If that suit fit her any better than it does, it would be her own skin - absolutely perfect! She's stunning!

MLC said...

Wicked hot -- and what about that photo shoot in W with Sienna Miller? (be still my heart)

I think Ellen frankly could use Glen's stylist.

Slym, that's Keeley Hawes next to Rachael Stirling. It's from "Tipping the Velvet."

Side note: Julie Andrews!! Yum.

*DROOL*

Sofia, Kate and Tilda... Damnnnnn...

Shucks, I almost slid off my couch... More pics of ladies in tuxes. Please.

Cindy said...

I agree - Glenn Close looks spooky, but still kind of sexy. I wish the ad had been better. Loved the extra pictures of women in suits - can't go wrong there! :)

This post really made me miss my tux. Floods suck, man, and all that.

What's with the no Close-up on the mouth?
The advertisers are implying she's maybe just finished servicing an incontinent man?
Close could've just had a gob-full o Guinness for all the detail allows.

Now here's a milk mo with deeetail.
mmmmm

Oh yeah, give it to me. :)

rebecca said...

Whoa... This comes just as I was trying to find pictures of women in tuxes for a project I'm working on... Awesome.

Anyone know where the Kate Winslet one is from and/or if there are any others where you can see more of the suit?

I was always a fan of this promo shot of Alicia Keys. I think she's beautiful in this photo!!

Gwen looks strangely like Kevin Kline in that shot.

rax said...

Glad I was sitting down for that... quite partial to Scarlett *drool*

And I must add: girls in suspenders. Everytime I watch the opening credits of the L Word, and there's Jennifer Beals in her shirt and suspenders, I go a little funny and only just regain my composure in time for the beginning of the episode..
