Doris & I went to see The Devil Wears Prada today!!! Damn!! It was GREAT!!! SO MUCH FUN. Really cool.
Now, some folks may think a movie about the fashion industry would be boring & mundane. Well, IT WASN'T.
All those beautiful clothes, purses, shoes, jewelry, models, designers, & snot bucket attitudes were pelleted non-stop across the screen in such colorful, gay profusion. So amazing! A great feast for the eyeballs.
But let me tell you about Meryll Streep! OH MY GOD....- RIVITING!!! She is SO FUCKING FABULOUS!! Like duhhh, I KNOW, but Oh My GAAAWWWDDD, who in this world is a more brilliant actress than her????? And she looked better than ever with that hairdo (probably a wig - but if I could look that good, I'd cut all mine off!!) & makeup, plus her Wardrobe was to die for!
I can't wear those high heels at this time in life as my Flying Feet are SHOT, okay??? (Much to Doris' chagrin) And I don't wear dresses anymore. (ditto before...) In fact I now wear sweats, jeans, tee shirts, & other sordid, schleppy attire.
But there was a time in my past incarnation that I was into ALL exquisite fashion as I modeled in my youth (age 8 to 21) & did the beauty pageant rounds after high school thru college. (Forget it, I'm not getting into all that today!) I dumped it all around 1969 during the Feminist Movement with the exception of being a most fabulous discoqueen-diva ever in the 70's up thru the 80's. So it was exciting to visit that glamour for a few hours in this movie. Can't say I ever want to go back to all that, but it sure is pretty to look at!
Now, back to the FABULOUS Ms. Streep, - She Was SO FIERCE!!!!! Good GOD!! And WHY am I always attracted to tough, bossy, cold bitches like that I wonder? It MUST be the ole' mother trick, my dear Mother- 'Ruth Truth' had me jumping thru hoops all my life trying to please her, which was an unending impossibility. Atleast I HAVE learned that those bitches I'm so attracted to are NOT what I really want, although I have even become one one the surface, myself. I do love a tough broad.
Well anyway, enough of this dribble. I see where Superman beat Prada out at the box offices this weekend. Shish. I saw enough of young men in tights & capes at the Pride Parade last Sun! If you have a chance, go see The Devil Wears Prada if for no other reason for Meryll Streep's AMAZING performance! All the pretty women & the mad kaleidoscope of insane fashion are just a plus!
