1. If you could style yourself what would be the accoutrements?
Fabulous question but I’d just like to take a moment and first point out what a beautiful job the ladies have done with me using the porcelain wares of the Ming Dynasty as inspiration. Stunning isn’t it? Anyway, back to your question; I would have to choose a CP Shades scarf to wrap up the hair, a Giuseppe Zanotti wedge, Tom Ford sunglasses and a Jennifer Meyer bracelet.
2. What is the most interesting thing about you?
I’ve been told I’m hypnotic which is just silly. I’m just little ol’ me.
3. Why have you started to move around in slow circles?
No reason. And definitely not because I’m hypnotic. Because then you would basically be accusing me of moving around and around and around and around in a slooowww and methooodical circlular mooootion that can somehow take control of your thoughts by moving arooouuund and arooouuund and arooouund and arooouund, sloooowwwly making you sleeeeepy and tiiiired and very sleeeeepy, enabling me to control how you see me slooooowly around and around and arooouuund and not until you hear the words Ann Arbor will you be released from my control however I will never say those words aroooound and arooound very sloooowly and in 5… 4… 3… 2… Wakey, wakey!
4. Hello. Question. Why are you so insanely amazing?
Oh, stop it! I’m flattered but really, I’m just a simple garment trying my best to cloak certain extremities, nothing more.
5. Every inhabitant of this planet and beyond considers you to be the most exquisitely cut, well-crafted work of art known to man. What do you have to say about that?
What?! Have people lost their minds?! I mean, really… I–I’m speechless. Rendered abso-lutely speechless.
6. What would you say if I told you I was starting a petition to have you placed on the list as the 8th wonder of the world?
Ha! I’d say, “Ha!” I’d also say you were just about the sweetest and quite possibly silliest little bonbon known to man. With that said, if such a list exists — a shout out to the ancient list, woo woo! — I’ d imagine some would stop at nothing, would fight to the death to have placed on that list whatever they deem worthy.
7. Is it okay if I terminate anything that dare step onto the path toward placing you on the list?
If bodies in our wake is the only answer to total world domination then bodies in our wake we must! Sons of Scotland, I am the Rodarte “Ming” dress!
8. Isn’t the Rodarte ‘Ming’ dress seven feet tall?
*chuckles* Yes, I’ve heard… kills men by the hundreds and if it were here, it would consume the English with fireballs from its eyes and bolts of lightning from its arse! I am the Rodarte “Ming” dress! And I see a whole army of my countrymen here in defiance of tyranny! You’ve come to fight as free men and free men you are! What will you do without freedom?! Will you fight?! Fight and you may die! Run and you’ll live! At least a while! And dying in your beds many years from now would you be willing to trade all of this from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives but they will never take our freedom?! If you stand tall and if you stand strong victory will be ours! From Zaria to Zurich… Auckland to Ann Arbor — D’oh!
9. Huh. That was weird. Anyway… What is your favorite eponym?
*sigh* Ah well… I guess it would have to be dunce, derived from the name of John Duns Scotus. Though revered by colleagues and followers for being a great theologian and philosopher, something funky – don’t ask me what – happened, giver or take, 300 years after his death because by the time 1614 rolled around, people had come to think of him as an idiot, aka a dunce. By the way, I’m actually 4’11”, if anyone should be so compelled to make a note of that somewhere. Okay.
