Oh, you’re killing me! First, I couldn’t be in NY for fashion week and now this! Seriously, though, I’m a huge fan of Steichen and would love to see James show if I were there. Well done James!

Sounds really exciting, wish I could pop-by! And that photo… how sexy ;)

I so love the photo here. What an intense look ! It seems he is watching us, not to say that he is super elegant ! I was about to write, this guy really looks like Gary Cooper but HE IS Gary Cooper…that explains the intensity of the look and the attitude :D. I wish I could have this photo in my room…

I used to have a postcard of this photo of Gary Cooper hanging in my closet when I was in my 20s. I think I just may print this out and hang it anew! He’s still a dreamboat. Will try to make the exhibit.

Aaah, what a photo! It’s the gorgeous guy that Irene, the designer of beautiful suits, jumped out a window for when she knew she could never have him. (sometimes the real Hollywood can be wilder than fiction)

Super duper Gary Cooper!

Men take note…this is how it’s done!
Gary Cooper… *Swoon!* He along with Tyrone Power were my first crushes as a young teen.

awwww, i so love this picture…

Gary Cooper might have been the most insanely photogenic human being ever born.
September 14, 2011 at 2:14 pm
Thanks for that info, Quigley.
He would be 26-27 in that photo.
Can’t recall seeing any of his work
from that era.

Great photo of Cooper. Men like Cary Grant and Clark Gable often got more attention, but Gary Cooper was, in an understated way, one of Hollywood’s best dressed men.

A wonderful photo.. just fantastic!
September 14, 2011 at 4:12 pm
I don’t think that I have ever seen a photo where Gary Cooper looked so handsome. What is so amazing is with the clothes that he is wearing if he walked by you on the street your reaction would probably be “What a well dressed good looking guy”.

Gary Cooper is one of my fabourite classic leading man, Gregory Peck was also a great one! Both kind of unfarely shadowed by Cary Grant, which, obviously was also… sigh…
September 14, 2011 at 9:08 pm
Confident and classy.
September 14, 2011 at 10:22 pm
Gary Cooper: a classic men’s style icon. It’s good to appreciate the style of other classic gentlemen other than Cary Grant (who is also a great style icon, but he is everywhere!)

Aaahhh! Gary Cooper. Elegant, beautiful, charismatic, understated. If only I was 70 years older! Where IS my flux capacitor?
September 15, 2011 at 7:48 pm
Classic elegance, beautiful

steichen+cooper epitomized ellegance non plus ultra….!

Gary Cooper… sexiest man not alive…
Seriously though… has nothing to do with the clothes, it’s his naturally laid-back attitude. Like, as if he was roping a cow one day and found himself roped into a suit.
At least, that’s what Clara Bow saw… !

Oh goodness gracious, that is one handsome man. The stare into the cameras lens makes me blush. Gary Cooper knew how to wear a suit. Absolute perfection!

What an incredible photograph and incredibly beautiful man! An era of pure style and grace. Hope to check the exhibition out. Thanks you for enlightening us…

So handsome….reminds me of my dad….

I went to this last night and really loved the prints. I’ll post my thoughts on my blog Monday, but in short, Edward Steichen is one of the best photographers of the last century. To see his works in print is important if you love photography. You will be blown away. Seeing actual prints is quite a moving experience, especially since now we only really see photographs on the Internet. Internet and print are completely different mediums!
September 16, 2011 at 4:38 pm
nice to see this on the blog along with your streetstyle photos…
September 17, 2011 at 5:37 pm
Great show especially the portraits, a must if you’re in Chelsea.

I have had this very picture hanging on my bathroom mirror for years!
It would make my boyfriends jealous, not knowing who he was. He is certainly a hard act to follow! His elegance is timeless.

The man of my dreams.

Come on this just isnt fair :D
Gary cooper was at the front of the queue when they were handing out stunning genes
It doesnt hurt that the suit and shirt are absolute perfection too (love those collars)
I’m a red blooded heterosexual male but even i can appreciate that this was one startlingly gorgeous guy
Anyone see him in ‘Morocco’ ?
I think ‘stunningly beautiful man’ was a term coined for Cooper in this movie

Stunning. I love this picture.
