Let’s as a collective just agree upon a time to get together and scroll through these pictures & exclaim grunts and expletives because UNNNGH! FUCCCCCKKK! Every single one of these pictures is a gift! Idris is wearing all these overcoats like the Lord of Autumnal Sex and I’m enjoying him sitting on that tiny bench. All seats are too small for Idris! Love the scruff, love the eye-fucking he’s doing with the lens, love the GIANT MANHAND porn, love the way the photographer filled the frame with only Elba. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to swallow my entire fist.
This lush editorial from March’s Interview magazine is an homage to artist John Kacare. Kacere was one of the pioneers of the photo realism, painting ladies’ torsos clad in lingerie. His subjects were usually lounging in bed, giving the paintings a sense of intimacy, with an emphasis on the fullness of curves.

Every time I see an new editorial of Frida I’m reminded yet again just how beautiful she is. Beautiful is a word that gets used a lot, but in terms of classically beautiful women Frida is right up there with Helen of Troy. She’s like a Disney Princess brought to life. It’s not surprising that Frida does a lot of the makeup and hair editorials and does them perfectly. This Hilary Walsh lensed photo shoot is full of great swimwear and summer looks. These are two other edits are great examples of what a wonderful model she is.
