The Beautiful People + TAG!

Okay darlings, today's post is totally gratuitous, and may be filed away under T.M.I.: Couture Carrie is using a recent tag from fashionable Brit The Dapper Kid as a pretext to share her personal predilections.
First, THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE, according to CC, beginning with Selma Blair, featured in Mens Vogue.
Second (see end of post): TAG!

Dear Readers: Who do you consider beautiful?

NEW TAG! From the stellar

The rules:
1. Link back to the person that tagged you.
2. Post these rules on your blog.
3. Share six unimportant things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your entry.

Unimportant things:
1. I can swim one lap of a 25 meter pool underwater.
2. My favorite items of clothing are my La Petite Salope bustiers. I have four (one recent ebay purchy pictured at right).
3. I am the oldest of five children.
4. I have three degrees: a B.A., an M.A., and a J.D. (and not a clue what to do with ‘em!).
5. Words and etymology thrill me! For example, have you heard of the mysterious Japanese concept called “moe” (pronounced both moh and MORE-ay) Literally translated, moe means “blossoming or sprouting like a flower from a bud,” but it has come to refer to the quality of overwhelming cuteness (like a Miu Miu minidress!).
6. I am totally obsessed with voting for our fellow fashionista & blogger Laurel of It's Her Factory – wouldn’t it be awesome if she won the V Mag model search?? (Vote for her here, daily until August 1!)

Couture Carrie is tagging these lovely people:

This tag is a fantastic excuse to share something non-fash with your fellow bloggers – have fun with it! xoxox CC

Siljesfashion said...

Your bustier is fabolous!I love Sophia Bush in this picture.

Jill said...

Whoa! That swimming thing is pretty intense! I myself have lost pretty much all my swimming abilities, because I haven't swum in so long!

Elizabeth said...

I've never seen Rachel Bilson look glamorous. Except here.

Selma Blair looks great, too!

Jaclyn said...

Selma Blair seems to be popping up everywhere. Her dress is beautiful.

..... said...

yeah moss is so nice

Couture Carrie said...

Thanks, Sharon and Silje!
Tinsley - totally; I just saw her on a rerun of Ellen and her hair was darker, still so beautiful. And her bras really rock!
Miss B: con tanta rapidez! Te linqueo tambien.
Pam & Enc - I definitely have a girl crush on Ms. Bilson!
Belle - it's Balenciaga that Selma's wearing, right?
Jill - I haven't swam (swum?) competetively for like 10 years, but honest it all comes right back once you get in the water - I think you'd be surprised at your lung capacity!
Mr. Style - I thought that Spanish Vogue cover was one of Kate's best!
xoxox to all~ CC

Laurel said...

I love the jumper that Kate has on. I've been on the search to find one that looks god on me, but haven't had any luck.
