This Is the Right Way to Dress Like the Person You’re Dating

Zachary Quinto and Miles McMillan are knocking this out of the park.

The thing about spending a lot of time with someone is that you tend to pick up on (and adopt) their habits, their tastes in terrible reality TV, and—eventually—their personal style.

It’s happened to countless couples, both famous (remember Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston?) and non-famous alike. And usually, it means wearing near-carbon copies of the clothes in your partner’s closet.

But that’s not the case with model Miles McMillan and his actor boyfriend Zachary Quinto (who you may know as Spock from the current spate of Star Trek movies). Instead of wearing exactly the same thing to a party celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Hugo Boss Prize for artists on Thursday night, the two donned similar shapes in different colors and materials. McMillan opted for a black-and-white houndstooth jacket with black trousers and a red turtleneck, and Quinto chose a deep purple tweed suit with a black turtleneck. (In one fell swoop, both of them nailed the important fall knitwear trend that’s taking over guys’ closets everywhere, but that’s another post for another time.)

So while they’re not exactly in boyfriend twin territory, they are wearing outfits that are decidedly complementary. And that’s ultimately one of the things you want out of a relationship: someone who enhances your look as much as you do theirs.

Ok so it’s my birthday today (yey yey hurra etc) and I got the most amazing gift that I just got to show to you all. 

It’s the full volumes of Les Misérables in french in an edition a couple of years after the first published one (around 1868). I started crying when I got them, it’s got all the illustrations from the first edition versions and it’s so beautiful.

Now I’ve got 5 different copies. From the left is this one in french, then there’s my huge fucking Swedish copy from 1927, then another swedish version I have from 1925 (less well translated but the swedish translations are a discussion for another time), and lastly are my two english versions (Norman Denny and then Lee Fahnestock and Norman MacAfee). 

Chinese sci-fi writer beats Stephen King for top fiction prize
Hao Jingfang wins Hugo award with dark story of social inequality and injustice in Beijing

“A futuristic tale of urban life in Beijing has won a Chinese novelist a top international prize for science fiction, beating out heavyweight Stephen King for the honour.

Hao Jingfang, 32, won the Hugo Award for best novelette with Folding Beijing, a year after another Chinese writer, Liu Cixin, won the best novel prize for The Three-Body Problem, Xinhua reported on the weekend.

Receiving her award in Kansas City, Missouri, Hao said she was not surprised she had won but had also been prepared to lose.

“In Folding Beijing, I have raised a possibility for the future and how we face the challenges of automated production, technological advances, unemployment and economic stagnation,” she said.

Hao said her book offered a solution to those challenges, but she hoped the situations she described would not become reality.

Hao is from Tianjin, and graduated with a physics degree from Tsinghua University in 2006.

The Hugo Awards, established in 1953, are regarded as the highest honour in science fiction and fantasy. They are named after Hugo Gernsback who was the founder of the American science fiction magazineAmazing Stories.”
