Ok, let's get that out of the way. Yes, I watch Project Runway with my wife, and not because she cajoles me or anything. It's a good show, even if your a straight man (p.s., I also like Kathy Griffin). An added bonus for watching this season is that one of the contestants, Kenley Collins, reminds me so much of '50s pin-up sensation Bettie Page. In Collins' audition video for 'Project Runway', she mentions that she's the granddaughter of a '40s calendar girl and we see a picture in the background, but it doesn't look like Page and I don't think Page had any children. The resemblance just knocks me out, aided by Collins' affinity for post-WWII era fashion accoutrements (click the arrow thingy in the upper-right hand corner of the Acrobat box to enlarge).
Readers may recall that I named Bettie Page Rules by Jim Silke one of my top 10 books of 2007. Now I see that Dark Horse has released a Bettie Page art portfolio by Silke. As an added bonus for Milton Caniff fans, Silke draws Page as two of Caniff's most famous characters - Miss Lace and the Dragon Lady (note the Caniff backgrounds!).
