Plain women know more about men than beautiful ones do. But beautiful women don’t need to know about men. It’s the men who have to know about beautiful women.
– Katharine Hepburn

As a beautiful woman yourself Nikia, I can't resist asking if you agree with Katherine Hepburn? :)

More on Katharine Hepburn here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katharine_Hepburn

P.S. It is always a pleasure to read your blog!

What better way to start the weekend than with Zelda? Picture #6 would keep anyone warm on a cold winter's day.

As for Rylsky, this set must be his tribute to Kazimir Malevich. Taking the simple color palette of Malevich's "Suprematism. Two Dimensional Self-Portrait", Rylsky offers us a two dimensional portrait of the ever lovely Zelda instead. What a terrific way to make the abstract visible!

The promise of the future beckons in the classic photo below by the great Julius Shulman. Two women seemingly hover over the twinkling expanse of nighttime Los Angeles. The future is there for the taking.

To look into Irina J's glittering eyes as she too sits by the window is to see that same sense of endless possibility. The future never looked more enticing than it does in picture #3.

(Given her bio, perhaps Irina is now designing houses like this. In which case Rylsky, you know where to go for your next location shoot!).

There was a soft and pensive grace,
A cast of thought upon her face,
That suited well the forehead high,
The eyelash dark, and downcast eye.
- Walter Scott, Rokeby

What poetry in Astrud's face in picture #10!

At length I saw a lady within call,
Stiller than chisell'd marble, standing there;
A daughter of the gods, divinely tall,
And most divinely fair.
- Alfred Tennyson, Dream of Fair Women

The statuesque Loreen is a vision of loveliness in this set, never more so than in picture #38. Wow!

Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.
— attributed to Marilyn Monroe

Kei certainly conquered my heart with this set. What a devilish smile she has in picture #18. Then comes nothing but melt your heart goodness with picture #44. Brava Kei!

Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.
– attributed to Albert Einstein

I couldn't think of a better title for this set. It's safe to say that I would be an accident waiting to happen with Zelda in the car. She drives me crazy with desire!

Kira has the unique charm of looking wonderful in this dress, and even better out of it. Wow!

And Rylsky? Picasso had his Blue Period. This set is an example of Rylsky's Mondrian Period:

I burnt as in a fire in her presence ... but what did I care to know what the fire was in which I burned and melted--it was enough that it was sweet to burn and melt.

What sweet fire this set is Nikia. You wasted no time - the first three pictures made me melt to the floor.

“You're not Dostoevsky,' said the citizeness, who was getting muddled by Koroviev. Well, who knows, who knows,' he replied.

'Dostoevsky's dead,' said the citizeness, but somehow not very confidently.

'I protest!' Behemoth exclaimed hotly. 'Dostoevsky is immortal!”

Kei is lovely in more ways than I can count. So from Fred to Cyd, and from me to Kei:

I love the looks of you, the lure of you,
I'd love to make a tour of you.
The eyes, the arms, the mouth of you,
The East, West, North, and the South of you.
I'd love to gain complete control of you,
and handle even the heart and soul of you,
So love, at least, a small percent of me, do,
For I love all of you.

I often wonder what a set comprised just of shots such as #s 1-3 would look like with this princess and what kinds of scores it would garner from the membership.

My only question, and here again this is just a personal observation, is just what is the overall color of the background wall and fireplace? Is it an off-white, a very pale yellow or a pure white?
