Now, you may think I’m just being arbitrary and contrarian (moi?) but the fact is a Martini must be cold, very cold, to be very good. And the only Martinis you should drink are those which have been made very well, and served in glasses that will not interfere with your experience. Any glass that forces you to hold it by the bowl interferes, by turning you into a big, handsy gin warming device. And don’t try to kid me. “I’ll only hold it up near the rim” is the drinker’s version of “I didn’t inhale.”
This week, the remaining designers are given the new challenge, to design the shoes for the bride who will be wearing the Vera Wang dress to her Puerto Rican wedding. (And, no, that is not the punchline to the tasteless ethnic joke. She is actually getting married in the San Juan.)
And, so, in preparation for the designing, the designer are given the three minutes to ask the questions of the bride about her impending nuptials. The answer that surprised the Manolo most was the date of the ceremony, “11-11-11, the date we will never forget.” Certainly, that is what those red poppies are for!
None of the designers seemed to fully understand that this Vera Wang dress was not the “traditional” wedding gown, but the unusual statement dress, with its blossom layers and black sash.
In other matters, the Manolo would like to give all of the designers the new hair-dos. Matthew would look better if he let his hair grow out, Keena should ditch the hippie bangs, Shannon needs something less architectural, and Rachel requires the hairstyle that does not make her face seem so narrow.
