You all know about my long term obsession with the girl crush... you know, when you admire a fellow woman for her character and all that she embodies (to put it simply). The other day, amidst the throws of work chaos and life conundrums, a miracle happened; I saw, none other than, Diane Keaton.
*I will pause and allow that to sink in*
She is the tbt you guys! I adore her. Not only is she hilarious, smart, and stunning (I don't even need to say "for her age" because, damn, she has been beautiful for forever), she is a badass! I mean, her style alone slays me, not to mention she carries herself in a zero f*&#s given sort of fashion, which I love. It is inspiring.
Her body of work stretches the gambit from Annie Hall, to Father of the Bride (my first Diane encounter), Somethings Gotta Give, The Family Stone (my personal favorite, makes me cry every time) and The God Father, if you aren't familiar with her work, get on it (Netflix, is a beautiful thing). Her androgynous wardrobe, often criticized, but adored for its daring. Her taste and sense of style, all in all, she is an absolute swoon worthy human being.
Now... given the size of the event we were both attending* and the fact that I am so not the type to fawn over people (to their faces), I decided to refrain from approaching her for a picture or simple handshake, instead I admired from a distance; like watching a lioness in her element, and take the moment for what it was; magic.
I won't lie to you, there are few people on this earth that truly leave me speechless, and she is definitely one of them. Who knows, maybe next time I will find the words to say hello.
Diane, if you ever see this, you are a dream and an inspiration.
For the rest of you, who are you currently crushing on?
*I can't lie... the concert wasn't my cup of tea but I can appreciate the taste none the less.
