The Little Emperor

Manolo says, nothing cheers the Manolo like the visit from his favorite funky little fashion troll, the John Galliano!

Look! He is the very model of the modern major designer!

Everyone thinks they’re down there just playing pinochle at the Knights of Columbus Hall.

    How kind of the John Galliano to present us all with this amusing spectacle for our diversion from our daily drudgery. He is truly a hero to the fashion masses.

    Yeah – but he was great in Hook!

    Is it just me, or does that woman’s head look like it’s on backwards?

    It is nice to see M Galliano in an outfit intended to be worn by the mens.

    Oh my god, he DOES look like the K of C guys from my confirmation!

    On second thought, he looks like the commanding colonel of the First Light-Loafer Drag-oons.

    And I’m afraid the KofC honor guard would kick his ass.

    But still, it is the Galliano, and somehow it all works . . .

    never_teh_bride, either that, or her arms are on backwards. Yikes!

    Well, I certainly enjoyed this, whatever it was… swashbucking captain costume & backwards-head-harajuku girls ca. 1880 & all…

    (Shhh… nobody tell Gwen Stefani!)

    Why, that is a backward body in a mask! All the women are wearing masks!
    Galliano is wearing a Galliano mask! It’s the Masque of the Asphyxiating Death by Fake Snow!

    Holy macaroni!

    What’s interesting is I suspect Galliano would wear that in public…and for some bizarre reason, it seems to work on him. It’s so over-the-top Galliano could pull it off.

    Ridicule is nothing to be scared of!

    He reminds me of Peter O’Toole in a bad period comedy. Except Mr. O’Toole has a lovely personality, and I am not sure exactly how the funky little fashion troll fares in that regard.

    You’ve got to hand to a man who will so unashamedly wear the uniform of a 19th century American naval officer in Paris, though.

    I ADORE Galliano. Along with Alexander McQueen, they’re two originals. They don’t spit out Stepford Wives suits like another designer we could name.

    What a charming and clever idea to connect our favorite Funky Little Fashion Troll to the funky little ditties of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta!

    Manolo, of the wit and savoir faire, even more eagerly I await your autobiography.

    He surely seems to be touched!

    Pardon the expression Mr. John Galliano, but there are some things that are just not kosher and I think you successfully discovered that one…. Read More:
