Sweetie Dahhlings….as the iconic Edina and Patsy, in a show all about PR , friendship and fashion frippery, we saw Jen and Jo wear some god awful clothes, despite the fact they were dressed head to toe in designer labels… I think we all remember the ‘Lacroix darling Lacroix!’ incident. Edina even had the nerve to once utter the immortal line to poor long-suffering Saffy “Why does everything you wear look like it’s bearing a grudge? You’ve got a wardrobe full of little murderers.” Priceless.
On first glance, at this red carpet affair to promote the long awaited AbFab movie (I cannot wait to see this), the same could be said of the ladies. I’m genuinely not sure whether they’ve come as themselves or their alta-egos. On closer inspection however there are some nice pieces here afterall. Jen’s Stella McCartney bag and fabulous Alexander McQueen knuckle dusters rule and quite frankly Joanna looks bloody marvellous in her Versace mac and neck bling. It was in fact about Donatella Versace she once said “One more facelift on this one and she’ll have a beard”. Genius.
It’s distinctly possible I may be high or consumed far too much Bollie, but I think they both look absolutely fabulous. Then again, I have spent most of my adult life trying to emulate Patsy. I mean afterall, she is the woman that said…”Darling, if you want to talk bollocks and discover the meaning of life, you’re better off downing a bottle of whiskey. At least that way, you’re unconscious by the time you start to take yourself seriously.” Words to live by I think we can all agree.
In my eyes these two can simply do no wrong, whatever they wear. Class transcends fashion.
Eddy: “Sweetie what are you drinking?”
Patsy: “Oh this? Chanel No. 5.”
I rest my case.
