I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking: “Why does Victoria Coren never write a FASHION BLOG? You know, one of those ones with pictures of cool people walking about in great clothes? Everyone else seems to.”
Well, you’re quite right. I’ve been thinking the same thing. Especially now that I’m a columnist for Elle magazine. They haven’t specifically said they’re hiring me for my fashion skills but I BET THEY SECRETLY ARE. And where better to collect material for a fashion blog than here in Las Vegas, the chic capital of the world?
Never mind the poker. Played 3, cashed 0, meh. Let’s get on with the fashion awards.
Best sunglasses: definitely the $15 dollar pair that I purchased in a casino shop, inspired by a little spin on the new Dolly Parton slot machine. I love Dolly Parton. I love glittery accessories. If I didn’t watch myself like a hawk, I’d dress in jumpers with rhinestone poodle’s heads on them. (I’d be grateful if nobody could mention this to Lorraine Candy.)
Anyway, here are my fantastic new glasses:
The only problem with these excellent new glasses was the horrific later discovery that James Dempsey looks better in them than I do…
.. which leaves only the question: does either of us look better than THIS opponent I sat next to in the $2500 No Limit Holdem?
Meanwhile, the best pair of shoes certainly belong to THIS lady, who clacked past me at the swimming pool. Who needs flipflops? Who needs espadrilles?
And the best all-round outfit award must surely go to THIS gentleman, whom I spotted standing outside the cafe where I was going for a cup of takeaway tea. Just standing there, not doing much. Having a bit of an old stand. AND LOOKING GREAT.
