The Awards of the Academy

Manolo says, last night the most super fantastic stars of the Hollywood appeared in public for the handing out of the Oscars.

In the general the Manolo he was pleased to see that the stars they dressed in a glamourous fashion befitting their station (Unlike, say, at the Awards of the Spirit of the Independents, whose participants they were dressed so barista bohemian casual that the Manolo found himself wanting to ask many of them to fetch him the low fat/skim mocha double cappuccino, and make it quick, the Manolo he is the busy man.)

Overall, however, last night there were alomst none of the grotesqueries of the fashion that have in the past caused the Manolo to do the spit take.

Still there were the few of the stars whose “get-ups” require the closer scruitny.

The Melanie Griffith
Pity the Melanie, La Pobrecita

Manolo says, yes, the dress it was awful, but the Manolo he does not want to make fun of the poor Melanie, as not only is she wearing the cast on the leg, but it is plain to the Manolo that the Melanie she is peddling as fast as she can to hang onto that super fantastic man of hers.

The Renee Zellweger
The Little Goth Mermaid

Manolo says, Behold! The Little Goth Mermaid.

The Robin Williams

Manolo says, the sad desperate cry for the attention.

The ???
Your fifteen minutes, they are up

Manolo asks, who is the dull woman and why does she appear to believe that she is the shizznit?

The Depp
Genius!

Manolo says, the Manolo he has the rule, if you are the Johnny Depp, or the Marlon Brando, or the Russell Crowe, or the Daniel Day Lewis, you are the genius and are entitled to wear whatever you want, however ridiculous, without the petty carping of the Manolo.

Of the course, this mention of the actors of the genius, it brings up the conspicuous failure of the Academy to recognize the genius of the David Hasselhoff.

At the least the Hasselhoff he should have been nominated in the catagory of the award for the best supporting actor, for his masterful return to the big screen in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. This injustice, it has left the Manolo angry and confused, and convinced him that the justice it may never be served.

Look, even the Squidward and the Katie Couric were upset by this snubbing of the Hasselhoff!

The Prince

Manolo says, I am the Prince. You must bow in the presence of my funkaliciousness.

Shoes of the Oscars!

Shoes of the Choo

Manolo says, even the are catching the Oscar fever.

The Stuart Weitzman

The Super Fantastic Regina King with the Super Fantastic Stuart Weitzman

Manolo says, here you see the picture of the Stuart Weitzman together with the Regina King at the big “bash” in the Hollywood. Those super fantastic shoes they are holding, which will be worn by the Regina at the celebration of the Oscars, they are made with the diamond earrings once owned by the Marilyn Monroe.

The Manolo he is the big fan of the shoes of the Stuart Weitzman, not only are they typically stylish, but they have a commercial vigor that the Manolo he appreciates, it is the couture widely available at the reasonable prices

Here are three pairs of the shoes from the Stuart Weitzman of which the Manolo he is quite fond.

Stuart Weitzman - Parable (Red Quasar Patent)  Manolo Likes!  Click!

Manolo says, it is the opinion of the Manolo that one of the things that the Stuart Weitzman he does the best, it is the strappy sandals. He has this very elegant, minimalist approach to the strapping. It does not overwhelm the foot with complications and adornments.

For the comparison, here is another little number of the strappiness.
Stuart Weitzman - Quadro (Black Peau)  Manolo Likes!  Click!

Again, simple, elegant, very much worth the wearing.

It is the same aesthetic of simplicity that the Stuart Weitzman he carries even into the boots.


Stuart Weitzman - Trophy (Black Calf)   Manolo Likes!  Click!

These basic boots, they are among the Manolo’s favorites.

Viva the Stuart Weitzman! Long may he reign in the realm of the mid-range, commercial couture!

The Super Fantastic Reader

Manolo says, occasionally the Manolo he get the letters like the following.

Ah, Manolo, how I love your blog with it’s unerring advice for the stylish and it’s gentle and unmistakeable disdain for the truly unworthy. You bring a smile to the most difficult day. I even read your advice for the Super Fantastic girl because your tone is enthusiastic and your words are often wise, but alas, I will never be Super Fantastic myself. As a school teacher in a poor district, cursed with thin hair and thick ankles, I may do much good in the world but I will never adorn it. Would you be so kind as to consider these two requests? Firstly, can you recommend a practical shoe – or shoe style – for those of use with the strong sturdy legs so good for hiking or breaking up a fight between two teenaged boys but not so good for showing off the stylish shoes? Secondly, if you think of it, could you find a phrase for people who are drawn to the Super Fantastic, who read the newletter and surf the Manolo on ebay, but only in the spirit of fantasy?

Manolo says, this person she is the lovely, honest human, however she does not fully understand the process of attaining the super fantasticness. She believes that because she is poor, and not possessed of the elegant ankle, that she will somehow be denied super fantasticness.

Nothing could it be further from the truth!

Manolo asks, are you not reading the blogs of the Manolo?

Then certainly you are either already super fantastic, or soon to be super fantastic.

This it is one of the secrets of the world of the Manolo: all you must do is read. Then, as the lessons of the Manolo they percolate down through the brain, you gradually become more super fantastic.

If you are the regular reader of the Manolo’s blogs you gradually begin to make the correct fashion choices, and over the time your wardrobe and your person they become more super fantastic. It is involuntary, and almost inevitable.

Of the course, the process it is greatly speeded up if you take the active role. For the example, the Manolo would recommend to his dispirited friend that she cease to focus on her trivial flaws and consider her many and manifest virtues.

If one has the unfortunate “log leg” without the ankle, then one must do what the Hillary Clinton does and wear the elegant pantsuits. If one is poor, one must be doubly sure to buy the durable high quality goods when they are on the sale, and then maintain them in good condition. The rules are simple, easily learned, and easily followed.

Manolo says, like so many things, the super fantasticness it is mostly the matter of the attitude.

Cosmopolitan

Manolo says, the Manolo’s friend the Madame Butterfly, she now has the blog where she talks about the jewlery.
