older for younger

I find it a little disturbing that Perth-born model Gemma Ward (IMG), 18, has been dancing with Dr. Ross aka Danny Ocean, 45. Equally (if not more) disturbing is Deutsches Modell Julia Stegner (Women), 21, riding cars and playing chess with the fifth James Bond, 53. Why? The older actors could very well be the younger models' fathers. Geez. But hey, beautiful pictures.

George Clooney shares the November 2006 cover of Vanity Fair with Gemma's beautiful back. I see a little reference to Jackie O and to Swedish actresses of the 1930s and 1940s like Greta Garbo and Ingrid Bergman. I like, I like.

On a darker, more mature note, British apparel and accessories house Aquascutum employed Brosnan and Stegner to look very double-oh-seven, although that title now belongs to Daniel Craig. On the last picture, she's wearing a Canterbury shirt and a Spot tie. Take note, his Canterbury shirt and Spot tie.

Something random. . . here are pictures of Julia and her boyfriend. Hitler would be outraged but we're all happy for her!

Anyway, this whole older celebrity-younger model thing reminds me back in 2002 when Swedish model Caroline Winberg (IMG), then17, accused Mick Jagger, then 59, of pestering her with calls on her mobile.

Which brings me to a hilarious quote from Jerry Hall, (she should know) saying that her "mother said it was simple to keep a man, you must be a maid in the living room, a cook in the kitchen and a whore in the bedroom. I said I'd hire the other two and take care of the bedroom bit."

Caroline definitely declined to do all of the above, even the bedroom bit.
