10. Gene Kelly

Aside from Prince Philip in Disney's Sleeping Beauty, my first crush was Gene Kelly. I would spend every Saturday with my dad growing up. Sometimes, when there was nothing to do, and no one to see we'd stay in. Dad loves old films - especially musicals. It was something he introduced me to at a young age, and it gave me a real appreciation for film. I've steadily been building up my Gene Kelly film collection for years.


I think the way men dressed in the 1920s, 1930s,1940s and 1950s is really attractive. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I have anything against the way men dress now - but there's just a certain charm about it. Much like there is about women's clothing from the 1940s and 1950s. Women dressed like women - and every day was an excuse to dress up, and Men dressed like men. It was clean lined, tailored and smart. I'm quite partial to cuts from the 1960s, psychedelic prints aside 


As appealing as it is to be scruffy on the off day, I wish men dressed like that more often. I came to the conclusion that I loathe skinny jeans on men last year, and it's an opinion I'm sticking to. 


Really this was just an excuse for me to post pictures of Gene Kelly and have a reason for it. Sue me. 
But come on. It's okay because he was one beautiful, talented man.

Ciao. x
