The Devil Wears Prada.. Opera Actors Don't

Miuccia Prada and Karl Lagerfeld are by far my favorite on-the-record activists in favor of skinny, skinny people. I most certainly do not share their views on beauty, but boy, when they speak their minds, you gotta love the brash, pots-crashing-in-the-kitchen-at-4-am delivery.

When given the task of dressing reportedly "curvy" supernumeraries (non-singing extras a.k.a. the costumed people in back) for a new production at New York's Metropolitan Opera, Miuccia was heard groaning: "I cannot clothe them! I need models!"

Thus, the Metropolitan Opera is holding a new set of castings (probably in conjunction with cycle 3,029 of ANTM) to look for a new slew of skinny, model supernumeraries with vacant faces and frizzed hair.

"I only have one headshot left, and the headshot in my hands represents the girl who's still in the running for the Opera's Next Top Extra. The girl who's name I do not call is toooooo fat, and must plummet to her doom from the 20th story window at once..."

Hahahhaa! I'm totally inlove with the way that you bring humor to the world of fashion... although it is pretty sad that Karl and Muiccia refuse to dress the norm.... ugh!

Glad I could make you laugh Charlie.

Isn't fashion so much more enjoyable when we don't take it so serious?

I think so.
