You want it, you got it.

A Blogger, who shall remain nameless, emailed me today and requested that I "stop objectifying men on my blog by posting 'pretty boy pictures.'" Ok, sure it was a joke (props) and a funny one at that, but it got me thinking. You're right, it's such a double standard to only objectify men on here...































I actually love these photos, and secretly long to be a Vanity Girl... Check out Vanity Fair each month for new Vanities.

How many actresses can you name?

Thanks Mikey! And thanks for following the blog, you won't regret it (I hope.)

First of all, this might be your best post ever (sorry - it had to be said).

Secondly, I feel out of the loop. In college when I was studying photography, I used to buy VF religously to get inspiration from the photos (nowadays, not so much). Thing is, back then they used the Vanities spot for up & comin' male actors too (somewhere in my notebooks lay the pages where they featured Vince Vaughan and Russel Crowe).

Guess when you don't buy a mag for a few years you can miss out huh?

I'm also sorry if it had to be said, but I don't regret following your blog, Ivy. Secondly, I feel sorry for the nameless blogger who sees sexism where there is none.

Oh and one more thing: my favourite picture in the lot? Although I'm not an expert in photography, I'll say that it's the one with Kristen Bell.

I think the Summer Glau one is my fav. Toss up between her and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

I have seen most of these, but it wasn't until you put them all together that I realized how much they are inspired by the great Gil Elvgren. He was the Norman Rockwell of pinup girls.

Love, love, love, love, love, love, love the Summer Glau photo! Thank you for adding that one. :p

Just realized I used a few of these (including Summer Glau) in an animation I made. This is part of a documentary that is 23 minutes long, but this is a three minute "fun" part. See if you can spot their gams:
