Manolo says, meets Donatella McScreamy


Best Interview Ever!

Friday, November 30th, 2007
By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, Ayyyyy! It is the fabulous Suzy Menkes interviewing Donatella Versace!

At first watching, you will not be able to pay attention to what they are saying. You will just revel in detail: the accents, the hair styles, the candles! It is all beyond magnificent and odd and wonderful.

At the second watching, when you are less distracted and can listen closely, you will realize that here are two smart women taking about interesting things.

P.S. From the Lauren Goldstein Crowe at the Fashion, Inc.


This is Sad

Ayyyyyyyy!

Here is the depressing photo of the Donatella Versace, the woman who has so much, and yet still feels the intense need to carve her face into the simalacrum of beauty.

The Manolo he does not mind the occasional nip or the little tuck, this it is not bad, but the grand attempt to turn back the hands of the time, or the desire to remake the features of the perfectly attractive face, it is disturbing and suggests the sadness and insecurity at the core of the person’s being.

The Manolo, he prefers one who is content to work with what the nature has given, who understands that symmetry is frequently overrated, who knows that old is not ugly.

The Compare and the Contrast

The Lips of Doom!

Manolo says, here is the tragic picture of the Donatella Versace.

The Donatella, she has everything. She designs the beautiful clothes, she is wealthy, she has maintained her figure in the excellent condition, and the dress she is wearing it is stunning, but the mania for the plastic surgery it has begun to turn her face into the grotesquerie.

Manolo says, yes, sometimes the plastic surgery it perhaps necessary, but the results to be strived for should be subtle and natural, a tiny nip here, a little tuck there.

For the comparison, look at our muse, the Miuccia.

Adorable!Adorable!

Yes, the Miuccia, her face it is not traditionally beautiful, and undoubtedly she has had the tiny nip and the little tuck, but because she has not meddled with the basic structure of her very Italian, very handsome face, she is more compelling than the Donatella, who is fighting the process of the aging with the tooth and the nail and the collagen.

Manolo says, because the beauty it is found in the state of naturalness, the trick to aging with the grace is to work with the nature, not to try to overthrow it. Nothing it is more ridiculous and tragic than the woman of the advanced years who is attempting to look like the teenager. (viz. Cher, Cher, and Cher)
