Vogue Knitting previewed this beautiful numbah from the upcoming
Holiday edition of the magazine. Sure, it's beautiful but I'm thinking the same thing as when I leaf through an anthropologie catalog: What's the bloomin' backstory?!
Why does the chandelier hang in mid-air, rather than from the ceiling? Why is that swath of cloth draped around the wire?
Because here's what I'm getting: the woman pulled an Anna Nicole Smith, i.e., she married an almost-deceased plutocrat. It is now after his death and our Lady in Red wants to unload the entire contents of all his properties - this one is in France - before the plutocrats' adult children contest the will. This is why the chandelier has come down from the ceiling, ready to be wrapped in the swath of pistachio-colored velvet drapery. Yep, she's even selling off the drapes and antlers. This is why the Lady in Red stands in front of a large pallet with her hand on an old trunk.
Okay, I think we can fairly call that solved, don't you?
