I Heart Bryan Ferry

I mentioned previously that I love to read men's magazines. They always seem to have very intelligent and interesting articles, especially about art and architecture. So of course I had to pick up the fabulous 50th Anniversary issue of GQ this week. They have a few different covers featuring stylish men so I chose the Paul Newman cover, that was only because they didn't have a Steve McQueen cover. I'd like to know what's up with that!

Anyway, in the feature on the 50 Most Stylish Men of the Past 50 Years, I found the most handsome photo of rocker Bryan Ferry standing in front of the prettiest handpainted Chinoiserie wallpaper. He also happened to have been quoted as saying the following, "Other bands wanted to wreck hotel rooms, Roxy Music wanted to redecorate them." How chic is that!

I have no doubt now that Jerry Hall should never have left Bryan Ferry for Mick Jagger. If she hadn't, she would probably still be married and living in the most beautifully decorated homes ever! Sigh. I think I'm going to go fill out an application for Soho House right now so I can go meet some potentially non-gay British rock stars/decorators! Cheers!

BA, He is sooo cool! I had Slave to Love in my head for hours after I wrote this post.

Thanks Ronda! I'm assuming the photo was taken in the UK a long time ago but I wonder where. The wallpaper is fantastic!

He's hot!Hot in a very English way.

RJH dl H, I have a fantasy of marrying a suave Englishman with a wicked sense of humour who's into art and design so I definitely think Bryan Ferry is hot!

Ha - immediately made me start thinking/singing "Slave to Love" too! I still love that song. So laidback/casual cool - like this photo, Bryna has just turned up and happens to look fabulous amongst his surroundings...

Alice Olive, it makes me think that's what Soho House must be like. Cool English blokes leaning against a cool backdrop. Sigh.

Chic - I love to read men's magazines, too. They are almost always better written than women's magazines, smarter, hipper - and they don't go on and on about "how to make her like you." So much better.

I am a jillion years old and my best memories are of listening to Roxy Music on records (ya know, those black flat round things) at parties in HS. His son Otis is a campaigner for fox hunting in the UK.
