Well she's got a point really hasn't she re the beauty issue?
Also in total agreement with Caitlin Moran about big knickers. They are marvellous and men don't give a rats...... Nice to see some refreshing viewpoints starting to come out of late.

No she hasnt got a point.

you can get perfectly nice knickers that dont have to be dental floss

and morans hair <waves at K hello darling> is fucking awful

Burchill thing about being pretty? yeah.. agreed with most of it.

FernandoBanjo Thu 11-Aug-11 22:49:23

yes, I likes the Burchill beauty article

Burchill so very right... not that I would admit to reading the paper she wrote it in.

What date was the Moran article? Can't find it even with my mad googling skillz

I never wear big knicks, even when on my own.

What is so fabulous about them?

Think the Caitlin Moran ref is from her book How to be a woman. Is very, very good and all should read it. Although I do prefer g-strings, larger knickers just creap up, strings are there and stay there.

I waited patiently for Ms Moran to sign my book and can reveal she has perfect eyebrows and I simpered a bit. <ashamed>

ElectricSoftParade Fri 12-Aug-11 19:34:07

It must be the g-strings, must be grin

Agree with everything Burchill says.
And I'd also add that losing it through age ( not that I was ever a beauty but I wasn't bad!) is completely liberating!
