Manolo says, Ayyyyy! The internet friends of the Manolo at the Shoe Stor, who provided the Clear Shoe Boxes for the contest of the Manolo, they are having their own contest, one in which they are giving away the pair of shoes from the Maestro Manolo Blahnik!
Manolo says, for the thousandth time, the Manolo the Shoeblogger, he is not the Maestro Manolo Blahnik. The humble Manolo the Shoeblogger, he is barely worthy to shine the most super fantastic shoes of the Manolo Blahnik.
Look, this confusion it is even mentioned in the opening paragraphs in the fascinating article about the Maestro Manolo Blahnik today in Times of the London.
It’s a good thing that I checked with Lesley, Manolo Blahník’s trusted press secretary and right-hand woman, that Manolo, sorry Mr Blahník (she calls him this), isn’t in fact the same Manolo who described John Galliano in his online blog as a “freaky little fashion troll”, or captioned a picture of Hugh Hefner looking old in a Hawaiian shirt with the words “someone call the coroner”. That Manolo, says Lesley, is an impostor, some guy in New York who is obsessed with shoes and uses the pseudonym “Manolo the Shoeblogger” to launch his bitchy sartorial bombs.
Although Lesley is understandably concerned about this issue, when she broke the news I thought it a bit of a shame. Recently a journalist attributed Manolo the Shoeblogger’s thoughts on Gérard Depardieu (“he is slovenly and outwardly repulsive”) to Manolo the Shoemaker, and I had been looking forward to meeting this rare creature, a straight-talking famous person.
Ayyyy! The Manolo the Shoeblogger he is indeed distressed to think that others may be confusing the Manolo with the Maestro Manolo Blahnik. Yes, both the Manolo and the Manolo Blahnik are named the “Manolo” (which it is the very common Spanish name), and yes both the Manolo and the Manolo Blahnik love the shoes, but there the similarity it mostly ends.
So, to recap, the Manolo the Shoeblogger he is not the Manolo Blahnik.
Update! Here is the best quote in the entire article, from the Maestro Manolo Blahnik himself!
“Manolo the Shoeblogger? Sorry, not me. But it’s very funny, isn’t it? Hilarious!”
Ayyyyyy! Such praise! The Shoeblogger is hyperventilating!
Manolo says, ayyyyyyy! The Gift Blog they are having the contest in which they are giving away the pair of the shoes of the Maestro Manolo Blahnik!
Truly the internet it is the wonderful place.
Manolo says, here to make you envious is the picture of the lucky girl who won the 52 boxes of the Godiva chocolates and the 52 pairs of the shoes of the other Manolo, the true maestro, Manolo Blahnik.
Manolo says, ayyyyy, the New York Fashion Week it is upon us!
This, of the course, is one of the many reasons why the Manolo he has not written many of the posts the past few days. The Fashion Week it is the busy time for the Manolo.
However, the Manolo he will offer the few tidbits for your delection.
If you, like the Manolo, are obsessed with the Project Runway, here is a link from the Miu Miu Von Furstenburg, that shows the pictures from the fashion show of the three finalists, along with the speculation about who the three they might be.
Finally, the Manolo he gives you the link to the website for the fashion week.
