Manolo says, what more needs to be said? It is the brand new book of drawings from our Maestro Manolo Blahnik, with commentary by Suzy Menkes.


Holiday Shoes 2010: Giada from Kate Spade

Giada from Kate Spade New York

Manolo says, the Holidays of the 2010, they have arrived!

And you will need, as everyone does, the red-colored, velveteen, platform shoes with the sparkly dots… and you have looked everywhere for them, the low and the high, but you could not find them… but then, just as you had given up… ¡mira!… there they are, the Giada from Kate Spade!

And, now, all you need is the dress to go with them.

Whose Shoes Wednesday… The Answer!

Manolo asked, whose shoes?

Uma Thurman Shoes

Manolo answers, it is the Uma Thurman!

Congratulations to the Manolo’s internet friend Patricia, who was the first to correctly identify this week’s long-toed personage of note.

The Manolo must now say that he is quite impressed by what one internet friend has called Uma’s “clarity of style.”

Uma has long, elegant feets, which she accentuates with the simple sandals, and she has very long legs, which allow her to wear tall boots when it is cold. Her selection of shoes is well edited and somewhat limited, but very good, overall.

The Manolo is also impressed by her posing for the cameras. She stands tall and erect, and points her toes, and yet usually seems relaxed.

Often you will see the Uma standing like Degas’ Little Dancer, in the fourth position, hands behind the back. And never will you see her in the most characteristic pose of the modern Hollywood starlet, with the toes pointed inward in childish attitude of mock modesty.
