    Who on earth would listen to this woman regarding fashion? She looks like she forgot to remove all her hot rollers.

  2. vicki Says:

    Precisely- I think in her rush she left in a juice can.

  3. The Baron Says:

    Madam, hold still…you have a giant madagascar cockroach on your head…let us remove it for you…..

  4. La Cabrita Says:

    Suzy Menkes looks like ED GRIMLEY (Martin Short’s character on SNL). Soon she will play the triangle.

    Or like “There’s Something About (Suzy) Mary.”

  5. La BellaDonna Says:

    La BellaDonna would not go to the Suzy’s hairdresser, but she applaudes another lover of the embroidered velvet jackets!

  6. The Scarlett Says:

    She looks a little like Belushi in his samauri skits.

  7. Tania Says:

    Ah, but who on earth would listen to this woman if she did not look like such a weirdo? For look at her: beneath the strangeness she is a stout, cheerful, ordinary looking English lady. No, to be the Samurai, you need to look like a samurai. It is not true that a rigorously tasteful appearance is the only acceptable role for clothes and hair. For millennia, clothes and hair have also been signifiers of singular power. That is what you see here but fail to recognize, mortals! The hair of power!

    Separated at birth from…Willard Scott

    What’s wrong with dressing appropiately for your age? Her Hair is odd, but so is the business of fashion…Her Hairstyle was created by Christiaan in the 70’s and still works at obtaining a length to her naturally round features. Yes, it COULD be more flattering, but it’s HER.

    “You can never have enough Hats, Gloves ,and Shoes.”

    I don’t get the coiff!? Does she have a hot roller/velcro roller stuck in there or something?
