What IS it about legs, lovely legs?
On a man or a woman, a well turned leg is a thing of great beauty.
(Yes, I'm a "leg woman". A man with nice legs turns my head!)
The advantage women have in the "leg department" is stockings (which don't necessarily feel like an advantage, though they look good), and heels. There's no denying the allure of an elegant shoe, one that accentuates the curvature of the instep, the contours of the female ankle and calves.
All the great Hollywood sirens have known this -- and used it to their advantage. With the possible exception of Katharine Hepburn, who did things her own way, and got away with it because she was inimitably and always gloriously herself.
Whatever happened to showing "just enough" skin? I'm tired of too much skin on TV, in the movies, on the street. I think men's imaginations need a bit more mystery to work with. Then again, I am old fashioned to the point where I'm thoroughly -- probably hopelessly -- out of step.
Oh well ... nothing new there!
