Kim Basinger in the Prada

Manolo says, the Miuccia she has hired the Kim Basinger to be the new face of the Prada!

Academy award-winning actress Kim Basinger has been enlisted by Italian fashion designer Muiccia Prada to model her new spring/summer Mui Mui collection.

Basinger, 51, who was a successful model before turning to acting, is the latest middle-aged female star to be chosen by highly acclaimed fashion houses, including Madonna, 47, and Demi Moore, 42, who both starred in recent Versace campaigns.

A source tells British newspaper The Daily Telegraph: “Basinger’s just finished shooting the spring/summer 2006 Miu Miu campaign in Paris.

“Muccia chose Basinger for the intellectual sensuality she has, which is quite unique.

“She was also a cover girl before she became an actress, so she’s no stranger to modelling.”

This it makes the perfect sense to the Manolo. The Kim Basinger she is beautiful in the way that only mature beautiful women can be. And the Miuccia she knows that her market it is not the skinny teenyboppers who are most frequently the fasion models, but the mature, fully-grown women who have the money to afford the intellectual luxury of her clothing.

The Manolo can do nothing but applaud this development.

Manolo says, the Pope, he is the fan of the Prada.

FIRST the devil wore Prada, now the Pope’s in on the act.

The Pope is reported to have displayed a liking for a pair of red Prada shoes, and has been seen in designer sunglasses, a padded quilt jacket and baseball cap.

Now, this it is something the Manolo he would like to see, the Pope in the Prada baseball cap.

The Katie Holmes Bag, Update

By Manolo

Manolo says, the Manolo’s internet friend the Olivia she has written to tell the Manolo that she has finally found the Katie Holmes bag.

Hola, Manolo! You may remember me as the girl who asked about Katie Holmes’ purple Prada tote. Well, I saw it at the Neiman’s in New Jersey (in the purple canvas with crocodile trim, just like Katie’s), and it cost $2,140. It was lined in super luxurious leather, though with the crap I put in my handbags, it would be bound to be stained by a leaking pen or lip gloss tube. It also was too big for my needs. Gorgeous bag, though.

Many thanks to the Olivia for this information. The Manolo he has not been in one of the stores for many weeks. Soon it will be the time for the visit.

Katie with the Prada Bag

Katie Holmes and her Prada Bag

Manolo says, here is the Katie Holmes with her Prada bag, and some unnamed man.

The Manolo and one of the Manolo’s many internet friends they have been looking for this bag with the purple croc trim in the stores and on the internet and have not been able to locate it.

Yes it is the Nylon and Leather Tote, but it has the desirable purple croc trim, rather than the black leather trim.

It is the opinion of the Manolo, yet to be confirmed, that this it is the pre-release of this bag, perhaps given to the Katie Holmes before it appears in the stores.

Courtney Cox Arquette and the Prada Shoes

Monday, May 2nd, 2005
By Manolo

Manolo says, here is the brief anecdote from the Manolo’s friend Eve at SFist about the the shoes of the Courtney Cox Arquette

As CCA posed in front of the SFIFF facade for photos, we shook off our shame and, in a moment that would make Manolo proud, we asked CCA the question that had been nagging at us since she alighted from her limo.

SFist: Hey Courteney, where’d you get your shoes?

CCA: My shoes? (Here she did that flippy foot thing all girls do when you ask about their shoes. You know the move.)

SFist: Yeah, I love ’em! (Shut up. We did.)

CCA: Oh, they’re Prada!

SFist: Sweet

Manolo loves it when the friends of the Manolo have the presence of the mind to ask the only question that matters.

By Manolo

Manolo says, the Manolo he loves this anecdote about the Queen Noor and her Prada skirt, and he loves the super fantastic girl who asked this question at the book signing.

Her: [signing in really pretty English and Arabic]

Me: oh i also wanted to tell you i really like your skirt, and I was wondering who designed it?

Her: [looks up, laughing, clearly thinks I’m a nutcase] . . . well I’m really embarrassed to say . . . [leans over now, semi-whispering] . . . but it’s actually praaaada [and I swear thatís how “prada” sounded coming out of her mouth! to me anyways]

Me: oh wow, that’s terrific! [bugeyed, huge grin, head spinning, brain about to explode, queen noor likes prada! queen noor likes prada! dammit I thought it was marni, but prada is even better!!] thank you!

You must read the whole thing
