I think he was mentioned a couple of years ago on this thread, but I have to add my vote for John Kriza.

i can't recall now where the comment was posted, but someone recently mentioned Peter Martins in a Blackglama ad.
here's a scan of a copy of the ad. (the photo has a 1979 date.)

I mentioned it on the Most Handsome Dancers thread, of course, where it did not seem to demonstrate it. Martins was very handsome when young, still not bad, but I remember first seeing this photo, opening a New Yorker, and thought it was awful.

rg--have you the late 30s photo of Graham in mink for furrier I.J. Fox, I just read about it in the McDonagh: "With her hat poised rakishly forward, she posed in front of a mirror displaying Mr. Fox's mink as pertly as anyone who had earned a badge of distinction".

if you mean a copy of the photo in question better than this poor reproduction from the Praeger edition of McDonagh's book, i don't have one.
the attached scan is from the insert of illustrations between pp. 150 & 150 from my copy of McDonagh's biog.
(my Popular Library paperback ed. of the same book also has this illus. but the pulpy paper is yellowed and the clarity of the photo worse is even than the one from the hardcover book.)
it's quite possible that this same photo ahs been reproduced elsewhere, but i can't recall ever seeing another.

Thanks so much, and my apologies for the trouble. I'd seen the photo in the book I'm holding at this very moment, but it hadn't occurred to me that that was an ad since he's in it, and I just read about it tonight. I wonder if that was a kind of ad done in those years, with someone else in it (in this case, the designer), or if that photo was the occasion, but not the actual ad that would have appeared in the magazines. The book does have some marvelous photos in it, and I wonder if at later periods the one from 'Deaths and Entrances' on the page opposite the Fox photo, might have been very effective as some kind of ad, perfume perhaps--it's gorgeous.

I’m inclined to agree with leonid about that shot of Bolle, although I know you meant no harm, cubanmiamiboy. Not that it isn’t, uh, appealing....

I like your other choices much better, though. :bow:


I know it shows enough to be considered by some as "out of place". Still, I can't think of it as being harmful in any case. I just thought of it as...edgy, risky and...beautiful. Then, I know it was enjoyable by many others.... I thought about taking it down, but then decided not to. :wub:

Grant, his recent performance of the Pas from The Nutcracker was beautiful. His handsome looks were complimented by his ability to make his partner look like everything was effortless. He enabled her to go for anything knowing that he was there. He was beautiful to watch, and made his partner look even better.

When or where did Grant danced the Nutcracker PDD? Thanks.



I saw Grant Delong as Nutcracker Cavalier at the Hershey Theatre December 20 - 21, partnering Sarah Walborn. Beautiful.
