Absolutely Fabulous!

Kate Moss has confirmed that she will be starring in a one-off special of Absolutely Fabulous in aid of sports relief, alongside good friend Stella McCartney.

For those of you that don't know, Ab Fab is a satire on the fashion industry that ran for 5 series during the 90's.  Joanna Lumley plays Patsy and Jennifer Saunders Eddie, 'a pair of high-powered career women on the London fashion scene', who waste their seemingly endless amounts of money on binge-drinking, recreational drugs and the latest fashion trends in an attempt to regain and maintain their bygone youth.  With the childish pair often landing themselves in a mess it falls on Patsy's teenage daughter, Saffy, to solve their problems, who through years of exasperation now acts like a middle-aged woman.

The show is hilarious, you really must take a look for some laughs and fab lines such as:

Patsy: What will you drink if you stop drinking?
Edina: I shall drink water.
Patsy: [Blank look]
Edina: It's a mixer, Patsy, we have it with whisky.

Here's my pick of Ab Fab fashion over the years.  You'll notice that Patsy (the blonde) tends to dress well, whereas Eddie on the other hand always looks like mutton dressed as lamb.  Brilliant.

Oh Patsy

  4. I absolutely LOVE AbFab!! I'm really sorry to point this out and correct me if I'm wrong, Joanna Lumley in fact plays Pasty (the blonde one) and Jennifer Saunders plays Eddie. I really like your blog and have followed you, would love it if you followed me back :)
