The title says it all, how can I become “prestige”. If you can think of someone prestigious , how would you describe them?

Humans beings aren't usually described as prestigious.

carefullycourageous · 11/09/2022 16:00

What do you mean by 'prestige'? Confused

Prestige isn’t an adjective.

People who try and be “prestige” are the sort I see up and down in Weybridge or Cobham (yeah massively outing) who drive Audi SUVs and wear white trousers and stripey tops overlaid with blue blazers, braying loudly.

we know.

A decent vocabulary of words used correctly is often a marker.

I think prizes and job roles are prestigious, I don't think it is something people can be.

Perform a series of elaborate magic tricks in the 19th century to rival Hugh jackman with your secret body double as Michael Caine watches on.

I’d start by learning that you can have prestige, but not be prestige. You’ve already marked yourself out as frightfully non-U.

Can you explain why you aspire to such a thing?

Howardsbend · 11/09/2022 16:17

Step one would be to get your nails done, I think. Then a spray tan and roots coloured. After that I'd think about having teeth whitened and at that point read some Pulitzer prize winners. Then ask around.

This reply is not very prestige darling.

“How can someone have prestige, Status, Class, Elegance.”

Not being rude to strangers online would certainly contribute to ‘class’

VelvetDancer · 11/09/2022 16:19

Absolutely a good vocabulary.

A degree from an excellent university.
A powerful career such as a judge or an Archbishop.
A high level of skill in a quite sport like yachting or parachuting.

Being 'prestige' is a bit like being cool.

If you ask for tips on how to be cool you are, by definition, unable to be cool.

If you ask for tips on hoe to be prestige...

Us fat middle aged women have grown up enough not to give a shit how others view us - hth

Prestige is a range of not so great saucepans hth.

pickledpotato · 11/09/2022 16:19

Do something worth of admiration

My bet is considering you're asking this on MN you don't have what it takes and will just be ordinary your entire life

And that's ok
