Wednesday Words: Red Carpet




Source
It was time for yet another illustrious Hollywood affair, complete with the fabled Red Carpet and pushy paparazzi.  Click!  Click!  Snap!  Flash!  Those were the sounds and flashes that tickle the hopefuls with hopes of fame.

Then cameras turned as another black limo braked at the foot of the Red Carpet.  The door opened as long shapely legs stretched out. Santoria Maria** emerged into the flashing lights, a statuesque beauty, the Flavour of the week in a world of gorgeous actresses.

“Santoria Maria** displayed her fantastic Brian Atwood psychedelic boots, laced to mid-thigh….”

“Santoria Maria** is wearing a marvelously stunning  design by Amy Smilovic...”

She sauntered down the Carpet, smiling, blowing kisses as reporters called out to her.
  
The prestigious event was going so well, until Santoria Maria** tripped, falling against the glamourous actress in front of her, who toppled into the next. 

Eventually  twelve ever-hopeful beauties ended up sprawled on the Red Carpet.

It was a revealing fashion mishap moment for all. Click! Click! 
Flash!...

On hands and knees, attempting to rise gracefully, Santoria Maria** discovered that boots really were made for walking, and precious little else.


One reporter sighed.  “Another one bites the dust…I hope she can type.

**Santoria Maria is a name invented.  If there is another Santoria Maria, my sincere apologies for using this name without any undue intent.

  4. The kiddos were talking just today about some fall that went viral--something to do with a prom or graduation. I don't know why people falling we find so fun to watch. (Well, not me. I mean the general "we".)

  5. Oh I laughed out loud at that domino effect. Those poor models; but what a fantastic photo opportunity for the papparazzi :)

  6. Red carpet snafus are priceless when caught on film. A variation of this happened to Zoe Saldana who snagged a heel at STID UK première in 2013. She didn't fall but her expression is beautiful.

    1. Things like this are bound to happen with ridiculous shoes. Somehow that makes me feel good. Am I a bad person?

  7. Rough day at the office for Santoria Maria! Do I sense a bit of schadenfreude?

  8. Yes, I admit to having some degree of schadenfreude when the vain and proud hit the ground. (my husband speaks German). Good word!
