I was thinking though, as I watched it, about unlikely style icons. I have a lot.
Lets start with my icons of working class glamour...big hair, heavy make up, tights clothing and lots of sparkle. All hail the soap divas.
Oh Pat, Pat. I almost wept when this brassy blonde left our screens this year. Yes, her look was stuck in the 80s but she really was the Queen of statement jewellery and, along with a penchant for leopard print and pink eyeshadow she really brightened up my weekday evenings.
|dangly earrings and bright lipstick...phwoar|
|not just a camel coat, a camel coat with a huge fur collar!|
|Red leopard print, that's right RED leopard print.|
|the perfect 50s style head scarf|
All hail the queen of leopard print. If you are looking for a fierce, animal print clad diva then Bet is it. Big 60s beehive, tight leather miniskirts - its a late 50s early 60s working class look that wouldn't be out of place on a Rockabilly pin up. Feast those peepers:
|Who doesn't love a leopard print fur, right?|
|Curls and a flower in the hair, awww. Admit it, all you can see if the cleavage.|
|Another leopard fur|
|This looks a lot like a 50s beachwear pose to me, love it|
|Mine's a pint, ta love.|
Another Corrie great here, and sadly one that pre-dates me. I have to get my fill of Our Else by googling. By 'eck is it worth it though.
|More fur, gotta have fur.|
|Piontu boobs, gotta have pointy boobs|
|A suit, a fur, gloves, pearls...|
|Look at that waist!|
I'll be back soon with another instalment. ;-)
