Portrait of a Woman: Irene Adler




Although ficticious, I have great respect for Irene Adler. She is the sole female who recieved undying admiration from Sherlock holmes, and is also the sole woman Sherlock described to Watson as  " a lovely woman, with a face that a man might die for." Even the King of Bohemia described her as having "the face of the most beautiful of women and the mind of the most resolute of men." Although the king laments that he could not marry her when he was young because they were born on such different social levels, after meeting her, Sherlock tells the king that miss Adler is on a much different (and essentially higher) level than the king. Anyway, the reason for this post is to show you how abosolutely happy I am that the adorable Rachel McAdams plays Ms. Adler in the (relatively) new Sherlock Holmes, and to share the gorgeous stills of her from that movie. (and was anyone else surprised that the man playing Watson was Jude Law, doesn't look anything like him.)
