Bob Mackie's tribute to Broadway on Thursday was better than Prozac! It was blissfully old fashioned. un-cool, and un-hip, relating to nothing else on the runways this week. He even got a standing ovation. Talk about going back to one's roots... and Bob still looks as good today, as he did 20 years ago. It was also refreshing to see front row fixtures actually SMILE. Interestingly, with everyone talking about changes post 9/11, and how fashion people have opened up and become more human, more friendly, it seems that nothing has changed within the elite fashion world. Most 'celebrity' editors still look as if smiling takes too much effort, and they prefer to exude an aloof, intimidating, and distant aura. What a bore!
