Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley in The Blonds at the “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” NYC Premiere

Posted on July 19, 2016

Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley attend the premiere of “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” held at the SVA Theater in New York City.

 

We can all agree that 2016 has been, if not the scariest year in decades, probably the most disconcerting and depressing. What this crazy world needs now is more fabulous bitches in eye-popping fashion.

Done and done. You’re doing God’s work here, ladies.

Everything about these shots make us insanely happy. Not just because Patsy and Edina can still serve it up, bit because they’re wearing T Lo personal faves, The Blonds. It’s a real treat for us to see Pats and Eddie in ensembles that we watched walk a runway.

We just knew these two broads were going to ace the red carpetry for this movie. To be perfectly honest, if they hadn’t, we would have seriously questioned whether the movie was worth seeing. After all, the demographic for Ab Fab (gay men and straight women over 35), is going to be more likely to pay attention to things like fashion and style. And these two ladies in particular have something of a responsibility to their characters to step out looking fabulous-to-borderline-ridiculous. And that’s exactly what they accomplished here; the perfect blend of fabulousness and ridiculousness – the essence of Pats and Eddie. Yes, everything is over the top and kind of insane, but that’s what The Blonds do. It’s their stock in trade just as much as it is Pats’ and Eddie’s. We couldn’t have dreamed up a better pairing than this.

Lumley looks fantastic, even if the coat is insane. It’s not quite what Patsy herself would wear, but we have no doubt she’d dub it fabulous on sight. Love Saunders’ cape/coat thingie, but she’d have been better off pairing it with skinny pants.

Jennifer Saunders doesn’t strike us as the type to love the insanity of the red carpet, but Joanna Lumley is clearly in her glory. We kind of wish more celeb women in this age group would take these kinds of risks. Could you imagine Streep walking out on a red carpet in Lumley’s getup?
