"Lacroix Sweetie, Lacroix!" Actually, we're not sure if Patsy ever wore Lacroix (that was more Eddie's label of choice), but either way they're the words that ring true for any Absolutely Fabulous fan when it comes to les modes. And with Joanna Lumley auctioning off her alter ego's wardrobe for The Prince's Trust, including items from Chanel, Betty Jackson and Moschino, it's your chance to nab a piece of TV history.
The constantly boozing and chain smoking character features in many of the fifty lots that will go under the hammer in London on Tuesday November 13th, which, apart from Patsy Stone, will feature ensembles from Lumley's other famous roles, including Purdey in The New Avengers and Marie in Trail of the Pink Panther. Plus Lumley's thrown in some of her own designer bits for good measure, which she calls some of her "greatest treasures and happiest memories". Is it the end of an era for Eurydice Colette Clytemnestra Dido Bathsheba Rabelais Patricia Cocteau Stone? Let's hope not. That beehive is a thing of legend, even if the last three specials were slightly disappointing. If she can survive a basement kitchen fire, we're pretty sure Patsy can survive a simple wardrobe culling.
