Naked Lady Monday: Bees Knees

The knee gets so little credit in the human anatomy. They’re knobby or knocked, and occasionally we’ve been known to go weak at them. But what they really are, when placed correctly with its constant companion the thigh, is a mighty protector of a lady’s virtue. Or, looking at it from another angle, an obstacle to overcome when seeking to passionately plunder said virtue. Still, whether clutched or crossed, the humble knee should be appreciated for its ability to spark our interest and stoke the imagination. And, of course, a swift knee to almost any other part of the anatomy has the ability to render another person immediately immobile. So, bottom line, knees – respect.

Cate BlanchettJust in case her knees weren’t modest enough, she’s got a full-body hose backup.

Angelina JolieBed head is almost always an instant knee weakener.

Kate HudsonWhen the humble knee is not enough, a book will help in a pinch. But, just make sure it’s a hardcover. A trade paperback won’t cover squat.

Marion CotillardIt probably would have just been easier to button her coat. Easier, but not more enjoyable.

Anna FrielGod, I miss “Pushing Daisies.”

Serena WilliamsI’ve seen how she fills out her tennis uniforms; there’s no way one knee would have sufficed.

Naomi WattsWorks backwards, too.

Lea MicheleWhen the “Glee” kids are doing it, you know it’s a trend.

Olivia WildeOver the weekend I caught a “House” rerun and then rewatched “When Night is Falling.” Let me tell you, that made for some very, very acrobatic dreams involving the lovely Ms. Wilde. Hello, wobbly knees.

Olivia <33333

Find me a part of that woman that doesn't make me weak in the knees. ;) Impossible. She is perfection.

Amazing set of pics. Thank you!

Okay...I got a bit confused there. You watched Olivia on House and then re-watched "When Night is Falling" that she is NOT in...but then you had mash up dreams... Got it. I like that when that happens...heh!

Fuckin' A, I never thought I'd look at a woman's knees and think, "Damn, that's sexy!" My outlook has officially been changed.

thank you for the posting,
my the best fave about nude in your post
that the people are like doing pocket billiard?
i just call it pocket ball. do you
remember? i like that a lot.

somewhat, speaking of nude,
maybe about art, what i realize,
new people come up again and again,
so it's like endless play. which is good,
cus never get bored, at the same time.
o;;;;forever...to learn.

the exciting part about it i guess,
there are artists who capture the psych.
you know it's intangible thing,
somewhat it should be in a tangible form.

then how?

beside arts, i'm not talking about it now,
something that doesn't help make money
always has great temptation. maybe cus
it has something pure joy about it.

nice day!!

Oh mama! I wish I was that straw...

Um...Angie Harmon...swoooon.

Olivia Wilde, what's with the shoes? Does she have shy feet? They cause too much distraction.

I also miss Pushing Daisies:(

This post is oh so good and makes me ten times happier to do the dreadful packing I have been putting off for 3 days. Seeing Anna Friel makes my heart sing again and then I watched Kristen Chenoweth sing "Hopelessly Devoted" with Digby five times in a row. (heres a link if you want to check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sxyC1WLlyg)

Also, Angie Harmon's knees, sexiest thing in the world. Lets hope Dr. Isles gets to touch them a few times this season
