Hmm.. 18 year old with Amanda Wakeley dress.. not fair is it?

fishie Tue 07-Oct-08 21:25:51

unpolished and too long. twiggy is not the grande dame / uber fashionista she thinks. lauren is always super though. isn't she tall!

I didn't like.

I thought it was very unrealistic.

Gok's better.

Wtf was Twiggy wearing?

And that damey at the end with the beret?

Katie was a hoot.

i find Twiggy the most un natural model EVER

her eyes never smile

dull dull dull and (ahem) wooden

robinpud Tue 07-Oct-08 21:35:26

who was the one with the funny flick to her hair at the front?

southeastastra Tue 07-Oct-08 21:36:34

my sister styles herself on twiggy

Robinpud - the Scottish one?

She is Paula Reed editor of Grazia

bundle Tue 07-Oct-08 21:38:39

fimbo, she's Irish, I used to work with her sister

bundle Tue 07-Oct-08 21:39:24

(meant to say, northern irish. and she's style director not editor of grazia)

FimboGotAxed Tue 07-Oct-08 21:42:43

Oops (I am Scottish blush) at least I got the mag right.

bundle Tue 07-Oct-08 21:43:56


I went to her house once

robinpud Tue 07-Oct-08 21:44:49

Yes- Paula Reed- strange hair imo

Couldn't get over the scouse wannabeWAG can't decide which was worse before or after..

bundle Tue 07-Oct-08 21:45:58

paula had her hair v long for years

didn't like all the whooping on that show tbh

fishie Tue 07-Oct-08 22:08:59

I didn't mind the frocky thing, but preferred the programme after it - it had Mary Portas (and Mary Quant), and Twiggy, oddly enoughgrin. And Grazia woman (is she Mary P's partner, or is that someone else?)

I thought it was all absolutely staged and that someone just gave them crap outfits outside to wear and then swap.

bundle Tue 07-Oct-08 22:16:08

also all slim (ish) women - you can wear these clothes if you lose shedloads of weight (like the woman who had the huge jeans/leather jacket cut down to fit her)

fishie Tue 07-Oct-08 22:16:50

feast or famine for fashion/clothes progs. i couldn't watch any more so didn't see style one.

JackieNo Tue 07-Oct-08 22:17:31

Yes - nobody above a size 14, I reckon.

I loved some of the bits of film of the Mary Quant designs, and one bit in particular with someone wearing a polo neck, long-ish shorts over coloured tights just looked completely modern.

LetThemEatCake Tue 07-Oct-08 22:19:31

I thought it was quite fun

but that Livepudlian with the Manolos! Before - argh!!! After- argh!!!

and that hideous Marc Jacobs frock - like one of those dolls that old ladies used to put over the spare bog roll. And there's old Fernie being all magnanimous about giving it away - ha!!!

And I usually looooove Marc Jacobs so am not being price-ist or bitter.

JackieNo Tue 07-Oct-08 22:20:34

Oh yes - 'a regular on the Liverpool party scene' - I bet she is wink. I didn't dislike her outfit afterwards, but her hair was dire.

LetThemEatCake Tue 07-Oct-08 22:22:29

all that money on frocks, and none on a make-up lesson (aren't they free anyway?)

Her outfit afterwards was fine - if you;re an Olsen , ie scrubbed of face, lean of limb and waifish of build. Not if you look like an Amazon or tranny.
