Drag racer

I am almost disturbingly attracted to Tilda Swinton when she wears a suit. She cuts such a handsome figure it brings large sections of my brain to a screeching halt. And then all I can think about is how quickly I could get that suit off. It seems only appropriate that these shots of Tilda come from L'Uomo Vogue, the men's version of Italian Vogue. Here she is gleefully channeling her inner Cary Grant and Clark Gable with a pinch of Oscar Wilde. The results are different and delicious, just like Tilda. What has always intrigued me about Tilda is her instinctual unconventionalism. A pretty face is a pretty face. But Tilda's face always makes you stop and think. This is not to say that she isn't pretty – quite the opposite. But that never seems to be her goal. Her goal is defiance and authenticity. And, hell, that's almost hotter than the suit. Almost.

If they ever do a movie of The Well of Loneliness, which I believe Emma Thompson was interested in doing, they should choose Tilda to play Stephen. Who else matters?

YES, YES, YES!!! You are so right! I *wish* they would do that movie - but not in bad lesbian movie style, rather in the grand Hollywood style that is well-shot and with beautiful screenwriting. Please, someone in Hollywood do this!!!
PS, Tilda's androgyny is haute!

I think you would have liked her in the movie Orlando, based on the book by Virginia Woolf. it's about androgyny, such an intriguing line of conversation. :)
