Absolutely Fabulous, Still!
Television’s premiere fashion victims are back for the fun of it
Before Sex and the City, gutsy girl TV was Absolutely Fabulous. Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley) are the ULTIMATE fad-embracing, “once a party girl, always a party girl” British characters who are giving a go of it again.

It’s the original cast plus a double Bubble- Jane Horrocks plays a dual role as a television presenter lusting for her 16-minutes of fame in addition to playing everyone’s favorite ditz, Bubble.
Always hanging on to the next style thing, ooh so last century Ab Fab fashion fads are replaced with of-the-moment trends like a scooter (in the kitchen), Mini Cooper, Burberry plaid, super Botox injections, inflatable blow-up bras (even too kooky for us to cover), a dribbling pebble fountain, and all the over-the-top designer clothes a fashion victim could ever desire.
The time that Edina and Patsy have spent away from the tube did them well, they didn’t lose their bite, they sharpened their snappers… the hilarious blasts keep on coming.
A few new century Eddy-isms:
To Saffron (played by Julia Sawalha), her fashionably-bland daughter- “Why is everything you wear look like it’s baring a grudge, darling?”
About an ex- “Being married to him is like being married to an antiques shop-full of crap and always closed.”
On losing weight-”Once I’d like to take my clothes off and not be marked by them.”
Absolutely Fabulous is fashion escapism in the truest sense, and I don’t know about you, but I can use a holiday right about now.
