I have a love for people with ridiculous amounts of ambition.
If I could, I would collect them like Kewpie dolls and let them run around the city doing crazy amazing things, purely for my entertainment. I am Godzilla’s philanthropic sister, Ingridzilla.
I received a letter today telling me about a fashion designer based out of Los Angeles who is posting on Craigslist, and spamming the universe (rightfully so!) trying to get the attention of one Sandra Bullock, who has recently mentioned that she hasn’t decided on a dress for the Oscars.
This aspiring fashion designer is desperate to create a dress for her. Here is the post:
My name’s Michael and I am an aspiring fashion designer here in Hollywood. For many years, it’s been my dream one of the best actress nominees would wear a gown I designed and made for them to the Oscars. My designs are glamorous, elegant, classic, and unique and I would would work fast to make any of the nominees the best dressed “belle of the ball!”
This year, one of my absolute favorite actresses, Sandra Bullock, is nominated and it would be a dream come true for me just to meet her, let alone have her wear one of my designs on the red carpet! I have done several great sketches already that would be stunning on her. So please, if you or someone your know has a connection to Ms. Bullock please help me meet her. I will do anything! I’ll even fly to Austin to meet her!
So, Ms. Bullock. It would be my tremendous honor if you would let me have the chance to show you my designs. I promise I will not disappoint and will make you even more gorgeous than you already are.
Thank you so much!!
Viva Sandra!! :)
Sure, I’m positive that thousands of people have come across this ad, chuckled, and continued on. Maybe even marked it as Spam or something equally douchey.
Michael, the designer is actually holding auditions for Sandra look-alikes so he can photograph them wearing his creations to send to her team. This guy is amazing!
But who would I be, as a lover of aspiring artists/designers, if I didn’t push this with hopes that this kid’s dream comes true?
Besides, dressing Sandra Bullock would be amazing! She wears some of the best dresses I’ve seen. From her history of “plain Jane”-type roles, it’s actually kind of surprising and unexpected. I can see why Michael is obsessed. I love Sandra Bullock, and think it’s a little sad she doesn’t get more coverage in the fashion world. It’s not her fault she’s not a 12 year old girl, nip-slipping in 5″ stilettos! Let’s take a trip down Sandra Lane, shall we?
She is fabulous. That’s just how it is.
