American beauty

Cold Fury posts on the loss of a certain something in popular conceptions of beauty in the United States (via the Dragon's Muse). That certain something might be called style, class or grace. Of course, comparing anyone to Audrey Hepburn is hardly sporting. Audrey was an angel.

My favourite part of Cold Fury's photo essay is an aside he makes when comparing male stars of old and their contemporary counterparts:

This is what men looked like before men became unfashionable

Quite right. Robert Mitchum was an excellent example. But don't forget the Duke.
