Macy's Chicago Picspam: Just Johnny

After his introduction by the Macy's spokesperson
in Chicago, Johnny prepares to take his seat
in the director's chair and begin the fashion show.

Kayso Davey plowed through some photos for us but now it's my turn to be a tiny bit exhausted so today we present, from Macy's on State Street in Chicago: Just Johnny. Without a whole lot of words to clutter him up. Because it's Friday and it's been kind of a busy week and isn't this what you were really hoping for anyway? Just some Johnny to gaze at right now and possibly for the rest of the day...? Yeah, me too.

One quick note: I was struck with how happy he seemed in Chicago, which is a comment I also heard from some who attended his Macy's event at Herald Square in NYC last night. We all agreed he did a fantastic job of emceeing at both appearances, of course, but it was more than that, and it was wonderful to see. Maybe it's partly that he's a little more free than he's ever been before, being out and proud and able to fully embody and embrace everything about himself, all that he was born with as well as all that he's achieved, and no longer needing to be at all circumspect about anything. I'm not sure, but I'm really happy that he seems happy. In Chicago he was flirty with the models, who were flirty right back, with at least one winking at him--much to everyone's delight. NYC attendees report fun-to-watch flirtiness there as well. And the crowds in both places loved it all.

Coming up: More Chicago photos--Johnny plus happy fans!

But for today: Just Johnny. ♥

Johnny says, "'Sperry topsider' is my styling note here,
but I have no idea what that means,
so let's just all revel in Clark's beauty..." Yes, let's!

Bonus pic! After a short break at the end
of the fashion show, Johnny is ready to greet fans,
sign autographs, and pose for pictures.

Yes. Revelling in all these pics and being pleased it went so well. Johnny at his best is always good, and a laughing, smiling Johnny is even better. He could save the world single-handedly with this smile of his.

Thank you for some very soulful and beautiful photographs, David. Johnny spans a full range of expressive emotion from moment to moment, and your photos capture them.

Johnny looks very Elizabeth Taylor in the photographs because of the contrast between the clear skin and dark curved hair and light eyes framed with stunning lashes.

Thank you, Misfit Mimes, for a great parade.
