Today is your day.
Anna Dello Russo’s driving you around in a rickshaw!
Which is odd, but hooray!
You have a phone in your hand.
A Maison Michel hat on your head.
ADR’s steering is scary,
and her fur’s starting to shed.
But you’re on an adventure. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the gal who’ll decide where to go.
“To the West Village!” You’ll shout, “I could use a quick bite.”
And you’ll head to Sant Ambroeus before you announce you just might…
puke, because the streets are bumpy, and she’s driving loco,
But never mind, never mind!
THE PLACES YOU’LL GO!
The next stop is Milan (because this shit can fly)
Where you’ll visit the Prada show room — you look, she’ll buy.
And after the shopping, it’s off to the pool
to swim 800 laps so her legs can look cool.
You may get a spray tan
and play a fast round of tennis
then yoga, then Pilates,
then do a quick shot of Henness…y.
Which is cognac, and you’re probably like Amelia, “I know.”
The point is you’ll want a buzz before Anna’s next show.
Not a fashion show, however! But this thing does have power.
Have you figured it out?
Have you guessed it?
YOU’RE GETTING A FASHION SHOWER.
KID, YOU’LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!
be your jacket from Zara or Dolce or Armani Privé,
or Gap or H&M or something random across the way,
you’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your fashion rickshaw is waiting.
So…get on your way!
