SNL's Mango Makes A Triumphant Comeback For Alexander Wang

comments



Enthusiasts of late-nineties and early-aughts Saturday Night Live, rejoice! The newest T by Alexander Wang film features Mango, the exotic dancer played by Chris Kattan. You remember Mango: Dressed in spangled, gold hot pants (or a luxurious silk robe during his introspective-diva moments), he would dry-hump everyone from Gwyneth Paltrow to Ellen DeGeneres. Of course, he made sure to remind the recipients of his fleeting affection, "You can't have-a-da-Mango!" But, Alex Wang can. In an exclusive trailer cut for Style.com, an elevator opens to reveal the sprite in what appears to be a snowstorm wearing his signature short shorts. How fashion of him! The complete movie will premiere on the designer's site and social media pages June 3.

Wang told Style.com: "I've always loved Mango's character from SNL, and to be able to work with [Kattan] was such an honor…Having fun and a sense of humor is so important to me that when I'm able to incorporate it into my work, I run with it." Run with Linda Richman of Coffee Talk next, please. (Style.com)
