Who says that good looking people can't also be total brainiacs (or, at least, a little bit smart, or, even, literate)? Check out one of our favorite new Tumblrs: God Gives With Both Hands, a photo + caption blog that lives and dies by the motto: "Some people are smart and pretty. It happens." Like this male model, backstage at the Jeffrey Fashion Cares gala the other night reading a copy of the Paris Review. Also on the blog right now: hot actor Tom Sturridge and a list of his favorite books, male model Brady Donnelly's academic record (dean's list!), and a photo of Karlie Kloss reading a copy of Amy Tan's The Joy Luck Club. So there. [GGWBH]
