Words to live by: Manolo Blahnik

Manolo Blahnik, on why keeping up with trends is stupid and ungodly:

“The idea of up-to-the minute fashion is a sin. Why? Because it manipulates women by making them feel they have to constantly spend money on different things to remain fashionable. This is ridiculous. I’d prefer to see women in twin sets and tweed. I have a very ’50s kind of mentality when it comes to fashion.”

The legendary shoe designer also spouted off about why toe cleavage is the worst, the most tragic moment of his life and how Sex and the City is actually kind of worthless (it’s like he read my mind).

Read the full WSJ interview here. Trust me, it’s a good one.
