cannes, 1962

if you peruse celeb blogs you might have noticed that the cannes film festival was on and ended a couple of days ago (see my favourite fashion picks if you like). these are photos from cannes in 1962…

My favorite thing to collect is probably old photographs just because I love making up stories about all of them and getting a glimpse into the past. Plus, I think they’re the best source of inspiration when in comes to outfits. These photos in particular are especially special because they’re all from the same couple of people. It looks like it was a family and their friends and other family members and the photos span throughout 1936-1938.

michael caine is a cool cad

i watched yes man a couple of days ago and the highly amusing new zealand actor rhys darby (of flight of the conchords) reminded me so much of michael caine, i think i mentioned it every time he was on screen. then i saw this awesome playboy pictorial featuring caine from back in the day, but beware – it has lots of boobs in it (nice boobs, though – much better than the fakies in playboy now a days)
