On the Serengeti for the night
A Faux Fuchsian neutral to behold
Oh so fab on MaiTai as she foretold
(apologies to William Blake)
Faux Fuchsian (rhymes with 'solution') - that which is of singular, striking, meticulous, colourful, and whimsical aspect
MaiTaition (rhymes with 'sensation') - of *mysterious background, perfect proportion, and regal bearing
*Den Intel Apparatus has uncovered new revelations (see below).
The Lion's Den wishes to bestow what shall soon be known as Fashion's most exalted honorific. the Order of The Leopard, on two most worthy ladies.

demonstrating a perfectly executed 'MaiTai Shim'
We at the Den have been hard at work unraveling the fascinating mystery of MaiTai and it was in studying her legendary selfie pose aka 'The MaiTai Shim' ('Shim' being a frozen Shimmy) that gave us a clue that broke the mystery wide open. It just isn't any gal who has the grace, bodytype, and artistic agility to execute such a fabulous pose all while holding that enigmatic smile of gently pinched ecstasy. In fact were she to be born a few centuries earlier, it would be the Mona MaiTai holding top honors at The Louvre. GSL's keen instincts told him to dispatch our Den Intel Apparatus to Moscow where our suspicions were confirmed. You see our Darling MaiTai was formerly Maishka Taidova who defected from the Bolshoi back in the late '80s driving Yeltsin to drink.

With rightful honors now bestowed let us follow in Faux Fuchsia and MaiTai's elegant footsteps and see what leopard offers the rest of us
