    The Manolo is an irresponsible and very, very bad man. View at your own peril? Avert your eyes? All products have warnings these days, Manolo Malo, and should be steadfastly maintained. What a delight it is to learn (over a rapidly cooling breakfast) that diastema and bows on boots are back in style.

    I leave you, hungry and dazed,

  3. Bunny With a Whip Says:

    Bunny is very upset that the whip is being misused in such a fashion by that…..thing.

    dear sweet christ that’s a whole lotta ugly.

    is that a man???

  5. Pavlina Says:

  6. Cat Says:

    Manolo, you have no idea how hard that made me laugh this morning! Thank you so much!

  7. Ryno Says:

    Hoo boy, that is ugly, whatever it is. However, it does widen the perspective. This weekend when I deal with yet another set of demanding emotional parents, I can picture them looking like that. Thanks. Manolo!

    I agree with Amy – that really ought to come with a warning label! But thanks for waking me up from my midmorning work stupor at work. I don’t think I’ll be able to sleep for quite a awhile now.

    Dear Lord!!! Australian Fashion Week is now not an event I will ever be able to bring myself to attend. YIKES! I had 4 people come in and check on me because I was laughing so hard I damn near choked..

    I think she looks great.

  15. Gaia Says:

    I don’t even want to know. Would drive me right to the outer space. Or something.

  16. Sarah Says:

    Yes, that was at Mercedes Australian Fashion Week, in a group show of young designers. That particular outfit was courtesy of Ed & Bek, just one of many “Carnie Folk” (well, thats how I think of them) ensembles the audeince was treated to. And trust me, it got wwaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy more interesting! Go check out the drag queen who opened their show!

  18. Grins Says:

    Eeek! Manolo….that was scary.
