Fashion Awards

Isn't Petra Bagust just the most absolutely fabulous creature? Beauty on the inside too - she lends her position to a variety of charity work. I think she is clearly the deserving recipient of my award for the most stylish and beautiful woman in New Zealand.

Left - Petra Bagust

It’s hard to believe that she was once an unappealing virgin with giant eyebrows.

Such a cute couple – Dave and Sarah Gibson, as seen at a movie preview in Auckland.

Her outfit is as sweet as apple-pie, and I like how their ensembles coordinate, but not in the creepy way that American tourists favour so much.

Last place-getter in my award ceremony, is the Velvet Gypsy. Cross her palm with gold, and she'll tell you your fortune.



Amendment: Photographer Olivia Hemus told me off for using her photos of Petra. Apparently I had stolen her "intellectual property." Not wishing to leave her bereft of her intellect, I have deleted them. The one used now is courtesy of the obliging Norrie Montgomery.

Bagust's always been hot. Ice ATV was classic.

Smithy,

I think you are wrong with your assumption of the Gibson's not looking like American tourists. All they need are baseball caps and the ensemble would be complete.

Although thank God they don't go so far as to have matching polyester everything.

Ahem. Ice TV.

Please please please tell me that Gilda fell victim to a horrible horrible dare that night... I'd hate to think anyone would pick such an outfit for themselves...

I thought virgin Petra was hot.
But then I also think naked pensioners in a hot tub are also hot.
Nevermind.

Both Petra and Gibbo (and presumedly their spouses) are serious Christians and snappy dressers. What does this mean? Does the Lord move in sartorial ways, leaving ol' Satan with the velvet off-cuts from Geoff's Emporium?

"Cross her palm with gold, and she'll tell you your fortune".

I thought it was "take your fortune"?

Wow. Gilda's obviously been pilfering stuff from her publicist's wardrobe.

Still, it was either that or the leopard-skin.

You are wrong, Seamonkey. The Gibsons look fab. Not a 'fashiony' look - but one of individual style. Sort of vintage rock 'n' roll. I like it. So there.

Ha ha, Anonymous. Very good.
