There has been an early entrant to tomorrow night’s Best Mod Outfit competition. Because Steve is, as we say in the legal world, beyond the seas (Australia), he is being allowed to enter, although he won’t be with us physically.
One or two people have expressed concern about their own costume for the evening. Those who follow me on Facebook will know that I have already had to share an article on how to match your socks to your outfit. I hope this will be of use, because let’s face it, it’s the little things that matter.
I have also been asked exactly what I mean when I suggest that a ‘Cleopatra’ hairdo might be required. I am not suggesting an upstyle, decorated with asps and a gold locket, of course. I am thinking more of those days when Cleo was mooching round Caesar’s country house, humming a tune, relaxed, her locks swinging shiny and free, dreaming of a time, a couple of thousand year’s hence, when Cathy McGowan would copy her look every Friday on Ready Steady Go. As Cleopatra herself might have said – the weekend really does start here.
