There's no wait at the Manolo Blahnik sale in midtown, but there's definitely a crowd. André Leon Talley presides over the scene, advising women on what to buy. When asked for some favorites, he pointed out a maribou mule and a stingray wedge, then turned the tables and asked us what color we'd call a pair of reddish-orange heels. (We said "Tangerine.") Want to stop by? The sale should end around 3:30, so get there soon. Prices range from $96 to $500, and the full price list is here.
