Alright nerds, hold on to your everything because I have a whole lotta GoT/other nerd crossover star photos to throw at you! We’re being blessed with so much Gwendoline Christie right now thanks to the upcoming Star Wars movie, we’ve got a little Emilia Clarke our mother of dragons/John Connor, and hey, why not our favourite Wildling/aspiring secretary maid Rose Leslie (Yes Downton Abbey is a nerd show! I watched every episode even though it got REALLY bad, it sparks devotion! It features costumes and high drama and controversial character deaths. NERRRRRD!)

All of these pictures are beautiful, but lets be real and admit it: THE GWENDOLINE PICTURES ARE BLOWING OUR MINDS! AREN’T THEY? THEY ARE! God, she’s perfect.

Rooney Mara is the cover star of the November issue of Interview Magazine, and while I’d rather just look at pictures of Rooney looking at Cate, these Peter Lindbergh black and white street photos are outstanding. I’ll just pretend Cate is next to Lindbergh, telling Rooney what a great job she’s doing and how much she loves her. Cate and Rooney’s film Carol comes out the end of November, and we are all going to WEEP! GLORIOUS BEAUTIFUL GAY TEARS!

Also featured in the issue is a lovely little photo shoot of Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie. I’d make a joke about The Great War, or Jon Snow, but neither of those things are funny, so just look at the pretty redhead!

I’m still giggle-watching Downton Abbey, which I have renamed, “My how things change as the years pass”, and it’s ridiculous and boring, but still so beautiful and fun. It basically consists of every character marvelling at how different things are now, in 1925 than they were then, in years before 1925. It’s so heavy handed, but it looks great!

My crush on Bates remains strong and powerful, he’s such a good husband/man/possible-murderer????? The cast has great camaraderie and yes, the wigs & ageing make-up are terrible, but the costumes, my loves, the COSTUMES! Plus I love final seasons of shows because ANYONE CAN DIE! And this show is already ruthless about killing off main characters with incompetent doctors/driving skills.

And then there’s this fierce diva pictured below whose weapons are her willow-slim arms and impossible eyebrows which she uses to test drive men’s sexual performance before deciding they’re not worthy of her, or to murder them with her SEXUALITY. God, she’s perfect! When not man-slaying she hangs out in her awesome room, just chatting with her bff/professional dress buttoner Anna while patting her bobbed wig, applying scents to her delicate inner wrists that trick men into thinking she won’t cut them if they cross her, trying on endless earbobs and lavaliers and long strings of pearls that I imagine she uses as a fuck lasso after dinner and cards and raising her sex-arch brows in response to everything everyone says. If you’re still with me in the final episodes of Downton watching, observe Mary every time Edith says anything, it’s hilarious! She rolls her eyes if Edith says hello. Every thing that poor woman says is scorned by her superhero eyebrow sister. I love it! I love them! I LOVE THIS SHOW!

But seriously, it’s not great. Worth it for the Dockery though. Worth it hard.

Favorites from the 2014 Emmys

Let’s preface all of this by saying that the Emmys are bullshit.  They’re dated, and lame, and tired and completely out of touch with the way that TV is growing and changing today.  That being said, PRETTY GIRLS IN PRETTY DRESSES!  Always a win.  So here are our favorites from last night’s red carpet

The Orange is the New Black cast is comprised of such an amazing, diverse group of ladies, that everywhere you turn you see some different kind of strong female role model.  Seeing all these ladies dressed up in the fanciest dresses, wearing jewels and done up all pretty is like a revolution in terms of women in pop culture.  Each one of them is a gift for all womenkind.   These are our favorite looks from this fantastically talented cast.

Mad Men, Downton Abbey, American Horror Story and Game of Thrones are all shows that have lifted the role of lead and supporting actress to incredible new heights.  Each one of these ladies express their own charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent via their personal style in such fantastic ways.   Here are our favorite dresses from these women.

And lest we forget our other ladies, like Amy Poehler, Carrie Brownstein and some of our favorite fellows.

Of course the party pictures are always the best part of any awards show, better than the ceremony itself, mainly because of booze.

Downton Abbey Ladies by Alexi Lubomirski for Harper’s Bazaar UK August 2014

It’s true that Downton Abbey isn’t the show it once was, but it still has one major strong point – its female characters.  Whether the upstairs or the downstairs women, each one is fully fleshed out, has wants beyond finding a man, have great, unique relationships with each other, as well as showing the spectrum of all ages.  Telling the stories of these women during a time when women were first starting to have some control over their lives, fighting for the right to vote, to do something with their lives beyond marriage and children is an important inspiration for women of today.   This beautiful shoot of the female cast celebrates these actresses and the interacting that happens between them in real life.  Also?  Dockery is KILLING IT.   She’s like a John Singer Sargent painting come to life.
