Laverie Vallee (July 18, 1875 – February 6, 1949), best known by her stage name Charmion, was a Sacramento born trapeze artist who possessed strength and a physique most men would be envious of. However, she was most well known for her risqué striptease performances.
The act opened with Charmion taking the stage in full Victorian attire. She would then mount the trapeze and proceed to undress to her leotard while performing impressive and strength-dependent stunts. The act was incredibly impressive and provocative for the era. However, the controversy created by her performances did not prevent the formulation of a devoted, and mostly male, fan base.
One of her greatest fans was Thomas Edison. As a result of that adoration, on November 11, 1901 Charmion committed a simplified version of her act to film for Edison. The film, simply entitled ‘Trapeze Disrobing Act’ focused more on the erotic aspect of the performance, though a few remarkable feats of strength are featured.

❝Jessica Pearson, she’s… I like to think of her as ‘still waters run deep’. […] Clearly, she’s a powerful woman, she’s in charge, she enjoys her position, she has worked very hard to get where she is.❞ — Gina Torres on Jessica Pearson (x)
Can I tell you, Gina Torres is one of those people with a truly phenomenal smile.
Like, I just can’t not be giddy when she smiles (especially the middle right gif).
That’s weird. I’m weird.
I just like smiles.
Black comes in all shades.
Some facts about the Dragon King and Queen of Bhutan:
Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck is 32 years old. He studied at Phillips Academy in Massachusetts (for my TSN peeps, same school as Chris Hughes), Cushing Academy, Wheaton Academy, and graduated from the Foreign Service Programme and International Relations at Magdalen College, University of Oxford. He ascended the throne at age 28, making him the youngest reigning monarch in the world at the time. He has overseen the democratization of the former absolute monarchy after the abdication of his father. He is also known as “Prince Charming” in Thailand and was called “The world’s most handsome king.” He also has represented Bhutan in basketball.
In May 2011, he married Jetsun Pema, who was then 21 years old. Jetsun Pema received education in Bhutan before having convent education in India. She went to Regent’s College in London and studied International Relations as well as Psychology and Art History. She speaks Dzongkha, Hindi, and English fluently, has won prizes for public speaking, and was captain of her school’s basketball team.
The two met when they were seventeen and seven, respectively, and supposedly the then-prince went down on one knee and said that if she was single and interested when she was grown up, he would like to marry her. Reportedly, Pema did not seem to take this all that seriously, as she didn’t ever seriously expect to be queen. Nevertheless, they married and he has stated that, while Bhutan allows polygamy (his father had four wives), he has no intention of marrying anyone else.
King and Queen of Bhutan are my favorite royal couple.
Doesn’t hurt that they’re both fucking gorgeous.
Such beautiful people *__*
