the problem is you are both working on a different definition of style. here's how the oxford english dictionary defines it, which i think is universally accepted:

Greta Garbo, and Monroe
Dietrich and DiMaggio
Marlon Brando, Jimmy Dean
On the cover of a magazine

Grace Kelly; Harlow, Jean
Picture of a beauty queen
Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire
Ginger Rogers, dance on air

They had style, they had grace
Rita Hayworth gave good face
Lauren, Katherine, Lana too
Bette Davis, we love you

Ladies with an attitude
Fellas that were in the mood
that's the definition of style
there's nothing to it.
under the paving stones.

part of my excitement was...is to see how mann's style gets used in this story. when scorsese was to direct, it seemed like a perfect fit...now it doesn't...that's what i find attractive...
