Fandango: What's hot, what's cold, what's good, what's bad - Fashion Fandango brings you the latest from the glamorous (I think not) world of fashion
Sunday 11 May 1997
2Naff! Is Miss Stella McCartney so frightened of losing her identity that she feels the need to wear her name on a chain around her neck! Is this not circa 1979 casual gal fashion? Or is it possibly because she's worried that people will start calling her Chloe?
2If you are a bit of casual dresser but you don't want to look like a bag of spuds, then go have a peep at the new `J' Sport collection, designed by Jasper Conran exclusively for Debenhams. Simple vests tops, jogging bottoms, long, fluid, jersey dresses, perfect pieces for the essential holiday wardrobe. From pounds 20, in sizes 8-16, at selected Debenhams stores. Enquiries: 0171 408 4444.
2Dined with ever-so-trendy friend the other night, who was banging on about the virtues of vintage dressing. Dressed in buttermilk (yellow), second-hand, Jaeger skirt and jacket, with radiant (radioactive) glow she had acquired that day (obviously spent far too long in the garden). Evidently, there is decent fashion out there for under a tenner - you just have to know where to lay your paws on it. My trendy friend's secret (no longer - sorry) is a shop called Butterfly (second-hand designer clothing) at 3 Lower Richmond Road, Putney, London SW15 (0181 788 8304).
2Old scouse face Lily Savage has been chosen as the new legs for Pretty Polly Resilience tights! Move over Jade Jagger! and every other stunner out there with incredibly long pins. According to PP, "Lily lives life on the edge." Lily says: "I used to get through so many pairs of tights. My dogs, Buster and Queenie, love to jump up and ladder my tights - but since I've discovered Resilience, they've taken to biting the postman again." Oh Lily, you're so funny. You should be a comedienne. No need to wear gloves or chop off all your nails, because Resilience are ladder- resistant, sheer, 15 denier tights, but with the strength of opaques. Available in black, barely black, sun blush and sherry for pounds 4.50 from department stores nationwide.
2When everybody else was glued to their TV sets watching the election, I, in the line of duty, of course, was busy voting for Ant & Dec at the party they threw to launch their new album. I was most impressed by the calibre of celebs who attended the bash, especially Big Ron from benders, sorry EastEnders, (my fave programme). I tried to chat to him but I don't think he's allowed to talk, he just nodded in agreement at the cockney rhyming slang I ran by him. I just hope that one day he'll get a bit more of a speaking role. Go on, give him a break. Create a few more crowd scenes so Ron can have his say!
2Pats is at it again, flaunting her little ol' self in The Face this month. A portfolio of scars - what a dreadful, ugly piece this could have been had it not been photographed so beautifully by the ever-so-talented Mr Sean Ellis.
2We have been told that dingly dangly earrings are an essential item for summer. Don't fret if you can't afford that divine pair from Erickson Beamon or Cobra & Bellamy. Visit F Hinds, who have come up with the pull-through 9ct gold earrings with either star, heart or cubic zircona. From pounds 6.95, they definitely "set the mood for balmy, romantic evenings". Better get a pair! Enquiries: 01895 201000.
