Tank Top Tuesday

Welcome to around the world in 80 10 tank tops. I was feeling international today, so how about an array of foxy foreigners? Sure, they may all come from different countries, but they all speak the universal language of tank top. It’s a small world after all. Talented Frenchwoman Charlotte Gainsbourg kicks us off up top. For the rest, we’ll start with America’s neighbors to the south and work our way around the old globe. Could I include every country? Sadly, no. But I did try for each continent. Well, except for Antarctica. I don’t think penguins wear tank tops. And now without further ado, grab your passport.

Charlotte Gainsbourg's mother (Jane Birkin) is also a top tank fan ;-)
And I'm proud to see 2 french ladies in this article ;-)

Thanks for the international flavor of "Tank Top Tuesday"... what a lovely group of ladies.
I have to say that Lena Olin and the fine definition of her arms in the photo you posted won out over the rest (for me)... not that this stopped me from still enjoying all of the other photos, but boy Lena sure has it going on... she was one of the best things about "Alias" when it was airing!

Oh my! I don't even know where to begin with Tank Top Tuesday. Wow! Wow! Wow! I must turn my fan on now and try and cool off.

Thank you for making my day!

And, since I'm half spanish, Penelope is on my fav. list

Charlotte FOREVER!

Shakira, Shakira. Um, I think you should devote a day to exploring the wonder of Shaki. There could be pictures...and video!

Actually Charlotte is half French/Half British.

Her mother Jane Birkin is english and her father Sege Gainsbourg was from Russia, naturalized french and he was one of our greatest ( and most contested) song-writer/director/singer/actor.

Thanks for the trip. Love the morning after look of KST. Yes, more Gainsbourg please.

Josephine said...

Oooh, a bunch of my favorite ladies at once, including two long-time obsessions, Kristin and Charlotte. Yea!

However, please make that Colombia. It's a common, insidious spelling error. We're talking about the country, not the university. Please excuse my pickiness.

Since you're going all international on us, I think it's high time you start paying attention to the lovely, divalicous, Irish Róisín Murphy. This might be one of the hottest shot of someone undressing. Ever (unless one of Lena Headey excists) (apologize for the graininess of this shot - that's all I could track down)

Tuesdays used to be one of my least favorite days of the week, but you've changed that, you know. Thanks, and looking forward to next week's installment!
