The show first aired way back in 1992 and I watched it religiously as the hapless fashion PR Edina Monsoon and Editor Patsy Stone make complete fools of themselves in the business of fashion.
Eddie's dreadful attempts at trying to squeeze herself, sausage-like, into all manner of hideous of-the-moment trendy ensembles were totally hilarious, whilst the sharp tongued, ex-model, coke addicted, anorexic Patsy, who "hasn't eaten since 1974", navigates her way through life in a drink induced haze in complete denial about her age.
As I watched the show though I must admit their outfits didn't seem quite as ridiculous as before! Eddie was wearing some PVC trousers (although teamed with a dreadful zebra-print jacket) and Patsy was wearing a fabulous leather tuxedo jacket and silver trousers. My Prince always used to say I was Patsy - good god he was right!!!
I hope UKTV Gold show more re-runs of the programme as it really was one the one the funniest send-ups of the fashion industry I think I've ever seen.
Of course since then I have never been able to speak about Christian Lacroix without saying "Lacroix sweetie, Lacroix".
