This week's links. Enjoy.
London Street Style
Great Vanity Fair slide show of the inspiring street style seen during this year's London Fashion Week.
10 Great Films in the Underground
And while we're in London, here's a collection of ten films set in the Tube, which incidentally turned 150 years old in January. Check out stories of war, adventure, spies, love and a creepy monster.
Is There A Word For That?
Fascinating history of how we invent language to fill gaps in our vocabulary — and why some newly coined words catch on (blogosphere) while others don't (huzzlecoo, anyone?). Via Arts & Letters Daily.
The irrepressible Bette Davis talks to Dick Cavett in 1971 about her experiences kissing in the movies — very funny, and will leave you guessing the identities of the less than stellar kissers she worked with, too.
Are You an Introvert or Extrovert? What It Means For Your Career
Interesting Fast Company piece on what being an introvert or extrovert actually means, and how to apply these traits positively in your professional life. Total introvert here!
“My father always said it was the wind, but the wind don’t say your name.” A quote from Cheryl, who as a child lived in a haunted house — part of photographer Corinne Botz’s eerie series of photos and collected oral stories about haunted houses. Via The Paris Review.
Sandra Bullock Is On Top of The World
Lovely Vogue interview with the always wonderful Sandra Bullock about her new film Gravity (which sounds great) and what she's up to these days (a lot of cool stuff that interestingly has nothing to do with films).
Lentil Soup With Caraway and Minted Yogurt
Perfect for lunch or supper on a chilly autumn day, this lovely warming recipe is one that I'll definitely be making. Via Saveur.
