Every now and then, during work hours I have a couple of minutes off, either to take a break or to do anything outside the office. This week, when all the September issues started coming in, I had the fortune to receive the latest edition from Vanity Fair (Princess Diana is on the cover). What I loved about this issue was the fact that most of the articles are emphasized on the fashion world, making a concentration on the industry side (it’s the ‘style issue’ of course!) . The most recognized fashion personalities such as André Leon Talley, Mario Testino, John Galliano, and Christian Lacroix are the ones featured on the main articles.
From the whole magazine, the article that I absolutely adored was the essay by Tim Sheaffer, featuring a ‘sort’ of interview with the genius and shoe designer, Manolo Blahnik. You’ve seen his stuff in almost every movie, but how can we forget about the royal blue wedding heels in the movie Sex and The City, worn by the iconic character, and true fashionista, Carrie Bradshaw, portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker.
What caught my eye about this article was the true authenticity about Blahnik. He doesn’t follow any trends, and he doesn’t have an obsession or an emphasis for skinny feet or skinny girls. The article is funny in its own way. Blahnik doesn’t like wine, and he has an original piece of almost every single shoe he has designed. The article is brief and easy to read. It made me laugh and appreciate a new side of the amazing designer.
