It’s Leo’s birthday! Let’s all make him papier-mâché Oscar statues! But first! Let’s look at pictures of Kate! Which is my favourite thing to do while I’m thinking about Leo.
First, allow me to FREAK OUT over these gender flip photos of Kate for the November issue of L’Uomo Vogue. GAAAAAHD! That cropped shot of her in the trousers is enough to make me want to weep into my pillow all day, but also her faaace! The cheekbones! The pomp! The bad-ass expression! My heart is full of Kate. On to the next one! Kate stars in another shoot by Peter Lindbergh for the Vogue Italia and, while equally as stunning in its stark black-and-white beauty, it doesn’t carry the same draw as the L’Uomo Vogue shoot. Also, Peter Lindbergh’s behind-the-scenes style drives me insane. I get that it’s supposed to look like this romantic voyeur shot when the subject is far off and you can see a foggy blur around the lens, but I think it looks like he accidentally stuck his thumb over part of the lens. I’ve also never cared for his shots of models posing next to all his equipment. No one cares! It’s weird and distracting! The strange thing too is that Lindbergh is actually very talented at framing a shot, he just loves the candid shots and it doesn’t work with his style at all. Kate also stars in a lovely little beauty editorial by Frederic Auerbach for Gotham. Truly we are blessed with bountiful Kateness. Also Leo! HAPPY BIRTHDAY FUTURE OSCAR WINNER! Maybe Kate will let him hold hers today and practice his speech! She’s a really good BFF.
