Wearable Wednesday- Prada after the Met Ball

Posted on


Ugh. So many text messages from Goopy this week. She has no respect for my quality time at the IHOP with Mr B.  ‘Use Prada, this week, use Prada’, ‘why isn’t my husbands cd in your car?’   ‘can you tell I ate a grape?’. ‘Do you think Stella Mcartney is talking about me?’ Well, ok, Gwynnie- to make you happy on one account:

Prada!!! Ta da!!!

First person to comment on the shoes gets a kewpie doll. They remind me of little dayglo galoshes. I’ll bet that Helena Bonham Carter has a pair.  You will scratch furniture with this collection, but isn’t it worth it?

‘When you get to her eyebrows, turn off the air-brush gun…’

Seriously- the shoes are growing on me.

well, not the white ones- they look like bondage nursewear. Don’t google that- especially during National Nurses Week.

    Luv the woman in black hoisting gown up; the Paltrow should be gazing to her right, cover those girls up. Like the orange skirt very very much. Helena definitely would have the shoes. Dark dark eye makeup…zombies/vampires are hot now, no??

      I’m wierdly drawn to the skirt/pant concept in all aspects, I like this one too. Gynnie needs to watch for breastal sidesteps in her formal wear!

    Why is Gwyneth in costume? She must be, why else is she wearing a mullet space apron?

      It looks likem her space nuggets are all clinging to her pockets, too.

    The shoes look heavy, must be great for balance though with the wide bottoms.

      zero gravity dress shoes- an idea that has waited too long

    Those shoes look like they have grounding devices in their souls… er soles. Those waifs might float away without employing the special powers of said footwear. ;)

      I do believe that some shoes have souls- perhaps not these, tho!

    Bwa ha ha. You’re the funniest. I am going to NYC next week and omg PRADA SCHIAPARELLI EXHIBIT (sounds of squealing and hands clapping). Surely will do a post… Prada’s my all-time fave I think. So smart. So feminist.

    Ha! Bondage nursewear. I have coveted many a Prada shoe. Wish I could get to the Met this summer..
    Happy National Nurses’ Week, Anne!

      Oh, I thank you, but I’m not actually a nurse- I do work among them- like Margaret Meade!

    Oh! Sorry! (and I call myself a feminist)

    Seriously, Gwennie, get a dress that uncovers your boobs in a more sexy way–they look horrible smooshed out the side of that dress! As for the collection, I couldn’t look at it, because I was too horrified by the Chuckie makeup. I think I’m going to have nightmares about Chuckie and his harem now….

      It’s great from ankle to neck, I swear!

    I find the orange eyeshadow particularly disturbing.

      Yes, it is. Very angry- polleny.

    Here are more close-ups of that Prada dress…even Mick Jagger was afraid to get to close!

        When I lived in the UK for 8 years this was my favorite paper, now living back in the US I get it online every day and the photos are more revealing than the US papers can show. Check out all the other articles down the right hand margin for more good gossip!

    I admit that I love that paper- so wondrously trashy!

    Double sided-tape! My 9 yr old daughter was looking over my shoulder as I read your post and she only noticed the shoes!

      Good girl! I do love the low heeled lavendar and black ones…..

    Dear god, NO. Ok, maybe to the shoes — they do look like a bit of fun. The rest of this collection can go DIAF somewhere.

    I’m too distracted by the eye make-up to form an opinion about the clothing!

Something lovely to share?
