Sexiest Dancer
Elizabeth Parkinson

Why: In the rare moments that she’s not in motion, it’s the porcelain skin, Nicole Kidmanian hair, and up-to-there gams you can’t help obsessing over. “She blends a natural authority with feline softness,” says one dancer. But onstage in Twyla Tharp’s Movin’ Out, it’s the fearlessness with which she hurtles into her partner’s arms that takes your breath away, in more ways than one.

Sexiest Depressive
Andrew Solomon

Why: Depression is usually the bane of writers. But in Solomon’s case, he turned it into an encyclopedic, groundbreaking best-seller on the disease, The Noonday Demon. And recently his sumptuous double-wide Village townhouse, complete with fifteenth-century Flemish tapestries, has become the place for fund-raisers for Hillary Clinton and Howard Dean. More Paxil, Jeeves!
