If you're not familiar with Absolutely Fabulous, get thee to Amazon.com. The British sitcom ran on and off from 1992 to 2005. It stars Patsy (Joanna Lumley) and Edina (Jennifer Saunders), a washed up model and a wannabe PR dame who spend almost the entire series drunk, stoned and decked out in the loudest Moschino and tightest maybe-Alaia they can find. Patsy and Edina's fashion obsession led to an insane roster of guest stars including Lacroix, Zandra Rhodes, Gaultier, Erin O'Connor, Twiggy and even Naomi Campbell. So, we're kind of jumping for joy that Fox confirmed they've picked up the re-make and will debut it later this year (Saunders, the original Edina, has signed on as Executive Producer). This means fashion, fashion, fashion on TV in the form of a killer costume department and hopefully some major guest stars. Because while Victoria Beckham on TV is fun, a Patsy and Edina meet the Costello boys meet Jourdan Dunn would be life-changing.
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.
