The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Sirens at ten paces

Andy Crossett hedges only a little here:

It's been suggested that the Britney Spears pants-less pose on the cover of the November issue of Esquire is the best celebrity leg-art photo ever taken. That's a big statement to make, but it's certainly the best I've seen in a long, long while.

I'm not entirely persuaded, especially since the Spears pose is deliberately styled after one Angie Dickinson did for the same magazine in 1966 (which was reproduced for the cover in 1993).

What say you, loyal readers? Britney or Angie?

And in view of the burgeoning interest in Blogging Babes...no, I'd better not go there.

Charles G. Hill has a celebrity leg-art question for any readers interested in celebrity leg-art. (And who isn't?) My vote is noted above.......[read more]

Angie.

I'll second that emotion. Angie had *class* - something this Spears moron couldn't buy, rent, or understand.

Putting aside any thoughts about who Britney is, I think her picture is sexier--her body is gorgeous. However, she looks like a kid playing dressup in the heels, which look natural on Angie's feet.

I agree with Holly. I mean, they could have at least air-brushed out Angie's line under her ass..since this this was a 1993 remake the option was certainly available. Britney's body is way hotter than Angie's given the same pose and outfit, simply considering the photograph, not the person.

If all men thought about classiness before sexuality, Playboy and Penthouse would be out of business.

I think they're both fine-looking women. I haven't met either one, so that's all I have to go on. It's probably for the best.

Penthouse is out of business, to all intents and purposes; the assets of the company can be had at fire-sale prices.

Must've been the lack of classy women.

Classy and super-sexy go hand-in-hand and are not mutually exclusive.

They're not mutually exclusive, to be sure, but neither of these qualities is exactly universal. And while "sexy", to a great extent, is in the eye of the beholder, "classy", I think, can be determined by more-objective criteria.

I'll take Britney. Not that there's anything wrong with Angie, mind you, but Britney has had some...interesting preparative experiences.

Easycure - I know.

Sometimes if you read a whole thread, the point comes across.
