Manolo's Shoe Blog » Celebrity http://shoeblogs.com Manolo Loves the Shoes!

.

Dragon Lady, indeed.

What ever you do, mortal, do no stare directly into the face of the Sarah Jessica Parker, lest ye be turned to stone.
.
.

She has the old-fashion looks, the kind the used to serve with baloney and wonder bread.

Look! It is the Maggie Gyllenhaal, and she has come to the gala straight from the automat where she was restocking the sandwiches.
.
.

This color, it is called 'Vapid Pink' and it is the latest addition to the Estée Lauder Suburban Bonehead collection.

It is amazing what can be accomplished today with the animatronic technology. Still working on the artificial intelligence, though.
.
.

.

The Manolo can’t even… too much is going on here, for the example, there are the body parts that seem to be heading south for the winter, but are wrapped up as the Pennsylvania Dutch wedding gift. Please to explain?
.
.

Into the locker, Beaver.

In the truly just world, the Justin Beiber would, at this very instant, be getting the mother of all atomic wedgies.
.
.

Or the topper on a Chechen wedding cake.

Ayyy! Karen Elson is the bride at the Dagistani wedding!
.
.

A boy's best friend is his mummy

Norman Bates brought his Mummie!
.
.

Query: When did the Katie Holmes become the Anna Wintour’s slutty little sister?
.
.

Taxi girl, a dime a dance.

“Well, what are ya waitin’ for, sailor? A better offer?”

P.S. If you enjoyed this from the Manolo, you may also perhaps enjoy this blog about the food.

The Face of Villainy http://shoeblogs.com/2013/02/05/the-face-of-villainy/ http://shoeblogs.com/2013/02/05/the-face-of-villainy/#comments Tue, 05 Feb 2013 23:11:36 +0000 http://shoeblogs.com/?p=20759 Manolo says, the English archeological nabobs have made the facial reconstruction of the newly found bones of the Richard the 3, and not surprisingly he has the very shifty eyes….

Richard III

Richard III, shown without the hump.

Here is the close-up of the artist’s reconstruction.

Definitely not the Lord Farquaad

Happy Thanksgiving http://shoeblogs.com/2012/11/22/happy-thanksgiving-8/ http://shoeblogs.com/2012/11/22/happy-thanksgiving-8/#comments Thu, 22 Nov 2012 11:24:55 +0000 http://shoeblogs.com/?p=20678 Ah, Thanksgiving, the day on which people all over the great United States of America come together to gorge themselves on turkey and pretend they prefer foodie Aunt Clara’s pomegranate confit with pink shallot relish to the can-shaped cranberry deliciousness that won the Cold War.

Considering the American importance of the date –not only is it Thanksgiving, it’s the 49th anniversary of JFK assassination– I should do a retrospective of Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis’ fondness for Roger Vivier’s pilgrim pumps.

Unfortunately, I’m both lazy and jetlagged and so here’s a snap of the La Veuve Kennedy four years later in full New York swing sporting a pair of Vivier’s iconic buckled beauties.

Oh, and also a ridiculous platter of pumps.

White satin for autumn? I mean honestly.

Dude Looks Like a Specter

Manolo says, it is the Tevas with the painted toenails that make this ensemble especially ghastly.

Are you Having a Garbo Moment? http://shoeblogs.com/2012/09/18/are-you-having-a-garbo-moment/ http://shoeblogs.com/2012/09/18/are-you-having-a-garbo-moment/#comments Tue, 18 Sep 2012 14:11:56 +0000 http://shoeblogs.com/?p=20226 I know I am. Let’s all find our key light and lift our tweezers high (but responsibly) to celebrate the natal day of Sweden’s own Greta Lovisa Gustafsson, aka the glamorous Greta Garbo.

Tweezerman slanted tweezers, the Frye Lois Oxford, Waterproof French Anglobasque beret, made in France by Nielba, and luscious cashmere-lined leather gloves from Fratelli Orsini, on sale and available in 15 colors.

Of course, if only the real thing will do, several of Garbo’s signature berets are up for auction. Air of mystery sold separately.

The Prince Who Would be Like the King http://shoeblogs.com/2012/08/27/the-prince-who-would-be-like-the-king/ http://shoeblogs.com/2012/08/27/the-prince-who-would-be-like-the-king/#comments Mon, 27 Aug 2012 17:48:30 +0000 http://shoeblogs.com/?p=19983 Prince Harry in Blue Suede Shoes

Prince Harry in the Blue Suede Shoes

Manolo says, fresh off his triumph in the Las Vegas touring company of Hair, Prince Harry then decides that it is time to boogie down, Jamaican-style, mon…

Prince Harry Dancing

It is his expression that makes this picture.

But, what are those shoes on his feets?

He was pictured wearing a pair of bright blue suede Russell and Bromley desert boots. The shoes, which are known as “Chuck”, retail for £115 and are officially due in stores in a fortnight.

Since arriving in Jamaica last week, the Prince has already appeared in public in a pair of tobacco coloured desert-style boots. They also comes in darker brown as well as blue suede.

Special pre-order boots, available only to those who have the connections? Truly it is good to be the Prince!

The Kardashian Kaboose http://shoeblogs.com/2012/08/14/the-kardashian-kaboose/ http://shoeblogs.com/2012/08/14/the-kardashian-kaboose/#comments Tue, 14 Aug 2012 17:52:03 +0000 http://shoeblogs.com/?p=19787 The Kardashian Kaboose

Manolo says, on the one of the hands, it is both startling and mesmerizing, like the second moon, brighter than the first, suddenly looming into view in the clear night sky.

On the other of the hands, it is her greatest, if not only, talent.

On the third of the hands, this provides the much needed corrective to the unattainable standard set by the booties of the Olympic beach volleyball.

On the fourth of the hands, this will undoubtedly send Mrs. Ice-T back to the plastic surgeon.

On the fifth of the hands, dayyyyyuuuumn, girl. Just, dayyyyyyuuumn.

The Kardashian Kaboose is On the Loose

Olympic Gold Medalist Ryan Lochte Loves the Shoes! http://shoeblogs.com/2012/07/30/olympic-gold-medalist-ryan-lochte-loves-the-shoes/ http://shoeblogs.com/2012/07/30/olympic-gold-medalist-ryan-lochte-loves-the-shoes/#comments Mon, 30 Jul 2012 19:15:23 +0000 http://shoeblogs.com/?p=19716 Ryan Lochte Winged Shoes

Manolo says, 130 pairs of the shoes!

Mr. Lochte’s dream is to eventually become a clothing designer. “I want to be different, and fashion gives me that outlet to do that,” he said, lounging on a couch after a practice in loose basketball shorts, a T-shirt that read “Google Me” and black Dolce & Gabbana slippers. For public events, he steps it up: Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren have dressed him, and he was signed by Ford Models.

[…]

“Ho, I think I have about, a total of 130 pairs of shoes,” Mr. Lochte said, warming to the subject. “So you can say I like shoes.” (“Ho” is another Lochte-ism, kind of like the inverse of Homer Simpson’s “D’oh!”) For the Olympic trials this month, he plans to sport high tops with star-spangled wings, like an all-American Hermes. “Don’t duplicate!!” he wrote, posting a picture of them on Twitter.

While the Manolo admires the exuberant enthusiasm for the shoes…

Ryan Lochte Green Shoes

it is clear that these are shoes for those who desire to have what the “swag”.
