Double Take: Fall From Grace

What’s in a name? Well, if it’s Sinatra, music, style, women, maybe even the mob might come to mind. Not too hard to figure out why Nic’s surname of choice just happens to match that of ol’ blue eyes. What is hard to figure out is why it’s taken us so long to pay homage to Grandaddy Frank.

Though his playboy persona certainly helped his status and larger than life reputation, his heart belonged to one raven haired beauty, Ava Gardner. That being said, he had a bevvy of blondes behind the notches in his bedpost. The most notable was rumoured to be Marilyn Monroe, but we find the story of Frank Sinatra and Grace Kelly much more entertaining for our latest edition of Double Take.

When Frank Sinatra asks “Your place or mine?” you inevitably answer “Yours.” if only to see the records in his collection and liquor in his cabinet. Barnesworth Anubis’ Mullholland prefab served as the perfect backdrop for what could conceivably be Mr. Sinatra’s Hollywood bachelor pad.

Now, you beautiful people certainly know that two gorgeous creatures don’t always make for a harmonious match — even when draped in Armidi and Paper Couture. In the case of Frank and Grace’s said rendezvous, he was severely intoxicated and continued to lament over the loss of his love, Ava. Oh Frank, everyone knows not to bring up the ex on the first date. Grace certainly knew the rules. She promptly said something along the lines of “Goodnight darling”, declined a second date, and went on to become the Princess of Monaco.

While Sinatra is Nic’s preferred surname, Kelly is sounding like a pretty good choice to me.

P.S. Stay tuned for a special double date with our fantastically fashionable friends, Miabella Foxley and Sylar Boyd.  Hint: It’s sure to be a regal event. 😉
