Prada called the show "Women & Cars," and wanted a feminine, joyous ride through the 1950s. The collection was packed full of child-like automobile prints, pleated dresses, studded rhinestone Rockabilly jackets and some of the craziest, beautifully wacky shoes designed like car fins. Think vintage Cadillacs. The Prada bags this season were also adorned with vintage hot-rods, flames or bedazzled. The set design, which included subway grates, recalled Marilyn Monro in "The Seven Year Itch."
Yo. Your boyfriend Vinny the mechanic called and wants his jacket back.
Vrrrrmm - Vrrrrmmmm!!!

Aren't these shoes totally whacked out -- in absolutely the best possible way? You know one of Prada's signatures is the ugly shoe. These put a big smile on my face.
You can watch the entire show here and trust me, it makes such a difference seeing how the clothes move, and there's like 30 more looks than what I've posted here. Go watch it and remember to smile.
