Easily Lead

I came across this picture on a French fashion blog, and I keep going back and looking at it over and over again. As far as I can tell it's from the launch presentation for a Victor & Rolf fragrance Antidote. (I sure wish I spoke French, because I'd love to be able to read everything brieuc75 has to say, but instead I'll have to content myself with all the pretty pictures. This blog is a great source of fantastic fashion images.)



I love the look, the style and the elegance of these guys in formal dress dancing together. I think part of the appeal for me is about men subverting a traditionally heterosexual activity like ballroom dancing. But then, I've always loved the look of a man in formal dress anyway, a pair of them is a bonus.

What I was actually Google searching for when I found this blog were pictures of my latest crush, fashion designer Gaspard Yurkievich:



Le sigh. The same designer who scandalised the press with a fashion show that had all the (fully dressed) male models simulating group sex on a pair of green leather sofas. Doesn't that just make you love him even more?

Mon frere Andrew, you have given me much fabulosity (or fag-ulosity!) to research and transfer to Fabulon. And that can only be because YOU are fabulous! Merci!

You're welcome! Compared to the embarassment of riches you've given me... I'm glad I can help!

You could always http://babelfish.altavista.com/ the blog... okay, it's not a perfect translation, and sometimes a little unintentionally humourous, but it would give you an idea about what's going on...

brieuc75, thanks for your comment! I love your blog. And sadly, I wish I did know Kylie...

Amy, part credit for 'le sigh' has to be laid at the feet of Michael Guy of 'Temporary Troublespots' - but it was very apt for this instance, non?

Yani, good suggestion! I once had an Italian stove and the instruction manual read like some Babelfish silliness. Kept talking about the 'ailiment' instead of food.
