We might not have an update tomorrow, folks, though I'll do my best to get something posted early next week. I'm going to be spending the day tomorrow with my parents who are in from out of town, so my time for working on the site is going to be quite limited.

The poster store at For the Love of Opera Gloves has been updated this morning with a whole new set of posters, prints and photos available for sale. Support For the Love of Opera Gloves by purchasing from today! Also, don't forget to drop something into one of the tip jars - PayPal, or c2it - if you want to help out with site bandwidth costs, maintenance and improvement!

Today's picture comes from The Marilyn Monroe Glove Gallery and shows Marilyn with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall at the premiere of "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes".

Today's update is a huge new inflow of images into our Royals in Opera Gloves collection. Six new individual collections - for Marina, Duchess of Kent; Princess Alexandra of Kent (Marina's daughter); Queen Alexandra; Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother; Princess Anne; and Princess Caroline of Monaco have been created. The general Royals galleries have been reduced in number from eight to six, as a lot of photos had been moved to those new galleries, but on the other hand there are also many new images in those galleries. The Queen Elizabeth II collection now has over 700 images, making it one of the largest single collections on the site, and the Princess Margaret collection has over 320 images. Here's Princess Margaret exhibiting the delicious "New Look"-era custom of wearing opera-length gloves in the daytime:
