    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    It is more middle of the road and moderate.

    And so agonizingly tasteless. They thought it clever to give him a horizontally striped vest.

    As though Steed's wardrobe hadn't suffered enough at the hands of Pierre Cardin. Poor Bailey and Weatherill.

    The stripes on the waistcoat seem to be horizontal, which is an interesting touch, I've seen them done diagonally but not horizontally, except on shirts.

    Not sure what the fuck is going on with the lengths though.

    Thank you. Diana shows more charm in that minute than Uma did in the whole movie.

    It's amazing how Uma's portrayal sucked all the sexiness right out of the character, despite the leather catsuit.

    You don't like Marie Antoinette's anatomy?

    You sound bitter.

    What sort of revenge have you played out in you mind?

    I like the way you have Uma, sucked, and sexiness in the same sentence. Good that...

    I've hatched an elaborate plan to build an army of robomen I'll call Cybernauts.

    That or I'll complain about it frequently on StyleForum.

    I think that jefferyd should take apart Uma Thurman's cat suit and comment.

    Preferably, it should start out with her wearing it, of course.

    Yes, we need to know if she is fused or the real thing. You know, all that half canvass floating chest piece thing people talk about here on the forum.

    Even if she never said "Let them eat cake", she was definitively at the end cut from reality .[​IMG]

    Like many other women in this world, she was married to the wrong man..

    That's not quite what she said. It was the textbook friendly version. We couldn't expose the womenfolk and children to the real word.

    Kinda like "The vice presicency is worth a warm bucket of spit".

    "Let them eat shit" is a little different, no?

    She was an obvious scapegoat because she was completely cut from the real world of famines and abject poverty.

    If you visit the Little Trianon in Versailles , you will understand better her psyche..A bit immature ,dreamy and not really politically and socially aware.

    Catherine de Medicis was a more interesting Queen.
