Euro Meltdown Fear

Once again there were no holds barred as the stars tried to outdo each other at London Fashion Week. Pregnant Beyoncé sizzled in an on-trend asymmetric leopard print dress, teamed with brown suede Mary-Janes and a clutch in this season’s hottest colour: fire-engine red.

Tulisa showed how colour-blocking should be done, looking hot in a bold Alexander McQueen LRD, accessorised with nude Christian Louboutins and toughened up with a très-now black leather biker jacket.

But stealing the show was Lady Gaga, rocking a quirky dress made completely from four million pounds worth of European currency, sparking a Euro meltdown fear.

    This is fabulous! How do you know all about the fashion world? I’m very impressed! Thank you so much for being a ‘fashion setter’ for this week’s prompt!

      Julia – I know absolutely nothing about the fashion world, but that is still marginally more than I know about the world of economics, so there was no contest really. I’ve bluffed as much as I can, but if I get anyone with a genuine interest in fashion reading this, they’ll twig pretty quickly that I don’t know my Blahnicks from my Jimmy Choos! Thanks for the prompt though – it really made me get out of my comfort zone.

    Wow! That is a clever piece of writing. Your knowledge of the fashion market is mind-boggling!

  3. Steve says:

    I like your twist too! Well done!!

  4. Dughall McCormick says:

    Oh yes! Beautifully done! Plucked from the pages of… erm… you know, one of those magazines in the doctor’s waiting room.

    Seriously though, this is impressively authentic!

  5. says:

    I really like yours, too! 🙂 I need to lighten up — mine feels way to heavy now that I’ve read the first two entries.

  6. Anna Halford says:

    Very clever take on the prompt. Love it 🙂

  7. Alison Green says:

    So so clever – I bet Lady Gaga will do this if she reads your piece!

    Best researched entry of yours so far. Blown away! Well constructed and utterly convincing. I’ll have to look up half of what you said! Of course, all that I know about fashion can be written on a stamp … in large writing. So bluff away to your hearts content …

    • sjbteaching says:

      You have enough knowledge of fashion to fill a stamp? That’s waaay more than I know…hence the need to research it first! Got a pile of marking to do, and then I’ll have a look at yours.

    Very clever! Wish I’d been able to think of something like this. I thought this challenge really difficult but this fits the bill perfectly.
