Benedict Cumberbatch Finally Addresses his ‘Yumminess’ 
By: Fraser McAlphine

At the Toronto International Film Festival, the cast of theAlan Turing biopic The Imitation Game were taking a Q&A session. As one would expect, Benedict’s mere presence in the room was enough to cause some excitement, with the bulk of the questions coming from women in the audience, and addressed directly his way. 
This reached something of a … of a … well I’m trying hard not to use the word climax … when one woman took the microphone and began by telling Benedict that she feels he is “quite yummy,” twice. Prompted for a question, she asked which element of Alan Turing did he identify with the most, before returning to her theme and ending with a question it is fair to say some other people in the room may have already been hoping to ask (albeit with slightly less creepy language): “Would I be able to feast on your yumminess?”
Thankfully, as the sound isn’t great Vulture was there to transcribe his answer, which came amid intense laughter from his fellow cast members, including a clearly delighted Keira Knightley:
“I’ll answer the first part of your question, which is… Christ. Sorry, I’m taken. I did not go into this Q&A about a gay icon who killed himself at 41 thinking I’d have to answer questions from someone who wants to taste my deliciousness.”

Read on here.

italianate I hope you’re following anglophenia because they have a lot of prime BC coverage.

Oh, well I’m following now. 
Also I wish I had Keira Knightley’s legs. 

But you’ve got a rack. Keira Knightley has a concave depression where her breasts ought to be.

True story. I wouldn’t trade.

Jenny Holzer

The only time I’ve ever seen this piece is in the *background* to that nirvana photoshoot. Jenny Holzer deserves a lot more credit because her piece is quite profound. Funny how work by a woman is only recognizable in the context of a man’s fame.

5 Things We Learned About Bill Cunningham Last Night Let’s all just agree that Bill Cunningham is magical. The legendary fashion photographer kicked off the 92Y Talks season on September 3, interviewed by Fern Mallis as part of her Fashion Icons series. The 85 year old dropped more pearls of wisdom and hilarious stories than our sold-out house could keep up with, traversing from delightful animation to tearing up about sensitive topics. Here are five things we learned from the New York Times photographer (although there were a lot more than five).
 He’ll wear a helmet “when it’s a law.” Cunningham is known for traveling exclusively by bicycle and doesn’t wear head protection.
Growing up, Cunningham’s family didn’t have fashion magazines in the house. “I never knew they existed!” Cunningham said.
Cunningham dyed Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’ red Dior suit black for JFK’s funeral. When Mallis commented about how incredible the story was, Cunningham replied, “It wasn’t amazing, it was practical!”
Cunningham’s first editor at Women’s Wear Daily called him “a hopelessly functioning illiterate.” This one elicited big laughs from the crowd.
The photographer, famous for his snapshots of street fashion, resents when people call his shooting tactics sneaky. “I’m trying to be discreet. I don’t want to frighten women on the street,” Cunningham said.
(OK, here’s one more!) He refuses to give his photo files to museums or historical societies because he’s “terrorized” by the notion of unflattering shots of someone being published. “You take lots of bad pictures. You don’t publish them, for heavens sake!”

    1. He’ll wear a helmet “when it’s a law.” Cunningham is known for traveling exclusively by bicycle and doesn’t wear head protection.
    2. Growing up, Cunningham’s family didn’t have fashion magazines in the house. “I never knew they existed!” Cunningham said.

  9. London, last fall. View over the skyline, the Shard, Hoi Polloi at the Ace Hotel, the Columbia Road Flower Market, street art in Shoreditch, Daunt Books, and more flowers from Columbia Road. And also this, which I wrote about it
