The photo above of Richard Gere in American Gigolo just solidifies my old-school frame of reference. While I love the new advertising campaign for Armani lingerie featuring Victoria Beckham (just like hubby, David), photographed by Mert and Marcus (who shot the gorgeous Lindsay Lohan layout in this month's "Interview" magazine, remember?) it totally reminds the iconic Julian Kaye character portrayed by Gere in 1980 (!).
Speaking of Julian Kaye--that's just one of my nicknames for Patrick. When he's feeling particularly tremendous, he does this walk where he's kind of tipped over backwards, much like Julian Kaye. My favorite walk, though, is his "hoop skirt" entrance into the party. Belle of the Ball! (And announcing a` la Scarlett O'Hara, "I don't know WHICH of you boys is the handsome-est!) Let's not forget the "he walked in..to the party...like he was walking onto a yacht...", You're So Vain entrance. Oh, Patrick.
Wow. Wasn't this post supposed to be about Victoria Beckham?
