Very Sad News

Manolo says, the Manolo has just received this very sad email from the sister of his internet friend The Debutaunt.

Dearest Manolo,

Alas, I must share news that is sad. Your internet friend, The Debutaunt, recently lost her battle against leukemia.

On behalf of her family, I want to thank the Manolo and your readers for the support given to her in trying times. Debby wrote a final blog post when she knew she was going to die as a way of reaching out to the various internet friends she’s made over the years. I felt I should forward it because it has meaning to me, and I figure it may have meaning to others who cared about her. The Manolo can find it here: www.debutaunt.com .

Even in the end, when she was confined to the bed, she still remained superfantastic. I think the both of us watched just about every episode of “What Not to Wear” because Bravo was one of the few channels worth watching at the hospital. Half the fun of that show is commenting on when we disagree with Stacy and Clinton, or believe the haircuts were change for the sake of change and not flattering. The fashion is much better TV to watch in the hospital than the news.

Grazie molte,
Steph, Deb’s sister

Please remember Deb and her family in your prayers and thoughts, and please also remember that Deb’s 9-year-old daughter will need our help in more concrete ways.

Manolo says, here is the short interview with the maestro di tutti maestri, himself, Manolo Blahnik. After seeing this you will have to agree that he is absolutely delightful.

Whose Shoes Wednesday…The Answer!

Manolo asked, whose shoes?

Manolo answers, it is the sexy race car driver, Danica Patrick!

Congratulations to the Manolo’s internet friend Teresa K, who was the first to correctly identify this week’s personage of note.
