5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting
Its a magical tale that shows how the mad world of fashion mixes so effortlessly with a well loved tale, and what else could Manolo do than inspire a happier ending for the Elves and the Shoemakers!
If you liked How to Walk in High Heels you will enjoy this little amuse bouche by Camilla Morton as its not just children that enjoy a happily ever after!

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Illustrations...and that's all
This series has a wonderful visual project so it is impossible to ignore it on the bookstore shelf. When you start to flipping thru the pages, it's impossible to do not fall in love with Manolo's illustrations - they are astonishing.
However, reading the book, in many occasions I felt that this thing of matching the tale & the memoir just didn't run as smoothly as it...

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Illustrations...and that's all, February 2, 2012
This review is from: Manolo Blahnik and the Tale of the Elves and the Shoemaker: A Fashion Fairy Tale Memoir (Hardcover)
This series has a wonderful visual project so it is impossible to ignore it on the bookstore shelf. When you start to flipping thru the pages, it's impossible to do not fall in love with Manolo's illustrations - they are astonishing.
However, reading the book, in many occasions I felt that this thing of matching the tale & the memoir just didn't run as smoothly as it should be. It seemed to me that someone made a huge effort to put the two things together and in order to accomplish a "convincing" result she left behind the part of the "beauty" of the tale.
Every time the author switches from the tale to Manolo's life, I felt a small jolt; it was like someone forcing a round piece to fit into a square one.
The book is worth it if you like Manolo's illustrations as I do, but don't expect too much of the story.
