The male Jean-Louis Ginibre has gone where no woman went before by compiling a splashy coffee table book on transvestitism in cinema. Titled Ladies or Gentlemen: A Pictorial History of Crossdressing in the Movies, this volume of men in panties would be, for anybody on your list, a perfect holiday surprise, if not equal to that of discovering that Laura Bush is actually a man in drag.
Through November 30, Popular Photography is offering a chance to win a copy of “Ladies or Gentlemen.” John Lithgow shows his feminine side in the book’s introduction. Chapters have droll titles such as The Show Must Go On . . . And So Must Tutus and Tap Shoes and Privates on Parade: Kiss the Boys in the Armed Forces Hello.
For those who don’t want to limit their fun to this book, Bergdorf Goodman carries a collection of “Days of the Week Boys Shorts” panties by Juicy Couture. The pair for Friday says “Thank God It’s Juicy.” Wear them to seduce your own Cary Grant, who starred in I Was A Male War Bride.
