Manolo the Columnist

Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.

Dear Manolo,

My husband has just gotten the dream job of a lifetime, an assignment that literally puts him at the top of the heap. So now we’re going to celebrate with a giant party in January when the new job officially starts. This party will be a dressy affair, with tons of important people, toasts, dancing, dining, a real blowout. What would you recommend in the way of shoes? I’m thinking of wearing gown by Narciso Rodriguez.


Manolo says, ayyyy! Congratulations on your husband’s great success! Undoubtedly you played the major role in bringing him to the place where his sterling qualities could be noticed, and are thus yourself the woman of considerable abilities.

Naturally, you will wish to shine on this most important evening, putting your best feets forward and stepping out in elegance and style.

Of the course, you should also not ignore the symbolism of the moment, which is why the Manolo would recommend pairing your Narciso Rodriguez frock with the shoes of Elie Tahari. Two super fantastic American designers who are immigrant children from disparate backgrounds, what better way to celebrate the diversity of this great land?

Much depends upon the color of your gown, but here is the beautiful and bejeweled strappy Elie Tahari sandal in the color anthracite.
