Ab Fab's Patsy and Edina Snag Alexis Bittar Campaign

If you doubted that Absolutely Fabulous was going to be able to stage a comeback, well, you're wrong. They pulled off a successful Christmas special (featuring Stella McCartney nonetheless), more episodes are forthcoming, and a feature film is reportedly in the works. So what now? The AbFab ladies just scored an advertising campaign with jeweler Alexis Bittar. Vogue UK caught up with the ladies and designer at the campaign shoot. Edina and Patsy don lots of bangles and kitschy New York Americana, and vamp for the camera.

The AbFab ladies just scored an advertising campaign with jeweler Alexis Bittar. Vogue UK caught up with the ladies and designer at the campaign shoot.

Edina and Patsy don lots of bangles and kitschy New York Americana, and vamp for the camera. Joanna Lumley (aka Patsy) told Vogue: "Such a fabulous shoot in the glorious jewellery from Alexis; it was sensational and I am thrilled with the pieces I have from his generous talented hands. Patsy was transfixed by the quality and wants lots more forever. I hope the campaign rocks: I am a fan for life." Bittar confirmed that the love-fest was mutual, saying, "I've watched every single episode at least 50 times, so I was excited to meet and get to work with them. We had so much fun on set; the ladies are so at ease in those characters, as soon as they slipped on the jewels and clothes it was such a transformation - it was like, bam: here we are sweety dahhhling."

You can watch the behind-the-scenes video here, to peep the ladies pouting, posing, and trying to choke Bittar with his own designs.
