Darling Men: Cary Grant

Archie Leech, better known as Cary Grant is probably one of my favorite movie stars. I simply adore his dry wit, his quirky accent and his classic good looks. This winter I've taken to wearing my scarves ascot style, as Grant often did. The look is sophisticated and a little androgynous, it always looks dashing on Cary. If I had to choose an man's style for my husband to emulate it would definitely be Cary Grant's style, perhaps his style from "To Catch a Thief." The look is classic and a little European with a healthy dash of individual flair...if only more men today had such refined taste.

My favorite feature of Cary Grant would have to be his sense of humor. Apparently he ad libbed quite a lot on set and some of his quips are decidedly dirty. I'm always shocked that they made it past the sensors. "That Touch of Mink" starring Grant and Doris Day is one of the best examples of this humor, if you've not seen it you should definitely check it out.

I just watched To Catch a Thief on AMC again. It never ages, and I never get tired of it.

Great post!
