Superstylin* stars Patsy and Edina are BACK and bigger than life on the silver screen. We are definitely heading to our favorite theater for cocktails, nibbles and Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie. Costume designer Rebecca Hale, who also worked on the television series, showcases British fashion in the film and received generous help from online luxury retailer Net-A-Porter for wardrobe. She also worked with London fashion design students to create faux runway looks and pulled clothing from graduation shows. With a plotline involving Kate Moss and cameos from the likes of Stella McCartney and Jean Paul Gaultier, we can't wait sweetie darlings.
Oh happy day! The long-awaited return of Absolutely Fabulous is almost here. On Sunday January 8th, the first of the AbFab 20th Anniversary Specials premieres on BBC America.The debaucherous duo of Patsy and Edina are back on the scene and the screen. High fashion HIGHlarity is sure to ensue.
The previous seasons of the series provide an archive of clothing dating back to 1992. Edina paraded around in the likes of Moschino, Vivienne Westwood, Burberry and Christian Lacroix. Patsy always fancied a good Chanel power suit. Fast forward twenty years... Many collections have come down the runways since we last saw Pats and Eddy. Today's Superstylin* Sartorial Spin places the Bolli and Stoli ladies in current collections by their favorite designers while trying some new ones on for size.
Edina embraces every fashion fad with fervor. Layers, volume, bold colors and notice-me prints are part of her signature eclectic style. As much as Ms. Moonsoon tried to make fitness her own personal health trend, it never really caught on but she always dressed the part in sporty streetwear. Patsy has a penchant for longer sleeker silhouettes and a more neutral color palette. Ms. Stone is often seen vamping it up in body conscious dresses as well.
The icing on the cake sweetie darlings: a New Year's Day marathon of every single AbFab episode for your viewing pleasure whether you are still ringing in 2012 or wrecked and recovering. Having watched every episode countless times since the 90s, I will definitely be swilling bubbly in honor. *More champagne for Lulu!*
