Manolo answers, Barbara Streisand!

Congratulations to the Manolo’s internet friend Blackbird in Tuvalu who was the first to get the answer to this very difficult question.

Whose Shoes Wednesday… More Clues!


Manolos says, finally, the Manolo has picked the celebrity whose shoes were not immediately identifiable by his internet friends. Here then, are the few extra hints to perhaps help them on their way.


Bettye Muller for the Summer

Manolo says, as difficult as it may be to believe, the summer is almost here, and the Manolo has been staring at these beautiful summer sandals from the Bettye Muller trying to decide if the raffia on the heel works for him or not.

On the one of the hands, the raffia works perfectly on the rest of the shoe, but on the other of the hands, the Manolo is mostly opposed to the textural and decorated heels (except on the wedges).

Perhaps the wooden heel would have allieviated this unease.


Manolo says, the Manolo does not usually follow the American Idol, as his tolerance for cheese and schmaltz is surprisingly low, however, he is now unable to ignore the rise of this Sanjaya person.

So, he has very nice hair, yes?

Unfortunately, as everyone acknowledges, his singing voice, unlike his hair, lacks texture and depth and volume, although by the usual American Idol singing standards, in which molto fortissimo fortissimo is considered just the good start, this is not necessarily the bad thing.

What he does have is the innocent and naive charm, and the undeniable stage presence that can only come from being sweet, sassy, and seventeen.

Who cares if the Sanjaya can sing? This competition is not really about the singing, it is really about the television, and the sparkly, bouncy, dippy Sanjaya is good television. Undoubtedly, he has the great future ahead of him.

Of the course, such beauty and workmanship comes with the very steep price.
