I am obsessed with this July US Vogue editorial by Peter Lindbergh. Magnificently obsessed. Seeing photos of Natalia and Ewan play house, going from adoring love to cheating, stealing, and leaving, made my heart jump and hurt a little. For Ewan’s character, of course. Aside from the obvious question of “Who would EVER leave Ewan McGregor, if they were lucky enough to have him???”, this editorial is perfection – which is a rarity for US Vogue as of late.
At first, I didn’t want to post Ewan-less photos, but since they are important to the story, I am leaving them in. The funny thing about these, is that the feelings I felt as a teenage girl in love with NSync/BSB/fill-in-the-blank-actor, came back with a vengeance, and here I am, staring at these photos…feeling the same butterflies in the pit of my stomach at a simple sight of a smiling, frowning, drinking his sorrows away Ewan. I saw him at TIFF last year…pretty close too, and yes, he is quite handsome. Very handsome, actually. Short, but oh-so-handsome…and his accent, it just slays me every time.
Anyway, here’s the US Vogue July 2010 editorial, appropriately named “Magnificent Obsession”, featuring #1 on my Freebie Five – Ewan McGregor, with Natalia Vodianova, in a role of his wife. Now, leave me alone, while I day-dream about my own love affair with Mr. McGregor, sans the cheating and stealing, plus lots of kissing and groping. Hope you’re having a great Friday! I know, I am.
