Manolo asked, whose shoes?
Manolo answers, it is the Uma Thurman!
Congratulations to the Manolo’s internet friend Patricia, who was the first to correctly identify this week’s long-toed personage of note.
The Manolo must now say that he is quite impressed by what one internet friend has called Uma’s “clarity of style.”
Uma has long, elegant feets, which she accentuates with the simple sandals, and she has very long legs, which allow her to wear tall boots when it is cold. Her selection of shoes is well edited and somewhat limited, but very good, overall.
The Manolo is also impressed by her posing for the cameras. She stands tall and erect, and points her toes, and yet usually seems relaxed.
Often you will see the Uma standing like Degas’ Little Dancer, in the fourth position, hands behind the back. And never will you see her in the most characteristic pose of the modern Hollywood starlet, with the toes pointed inward in childish attitude of mock modesty.
The Manolo has never given much attention to Uma Thurman, Kill Bill not being very much to the taste of the Manolo. So it is strange that, after looking at hundreds of the photos yesterday, the Manolo should come to agree with Quentin Tarantino, that Uma Thurman is “up there with Garbo and Dietrich in goddess territory”.0
