Edina and Pats for British Vogue
The Absolutely Fabulous Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone are the chicest, most stylish campaign stars of the season - and they're not afraid to strike a pose for the cameras in Alexis Bittar's new campaign.
"I am a massive fan! From the first episode I inherited the word 'sweetie' for five years," Bittar told British Vogue. "It got to the point where it was nauseating and I was forced to stop. I have a tremendous respect for their talent. I was beyond excited to meet and get to work with them. On set, it was one of those rare instances in my life where I was totally star struck."
Jennifer Saunders, as her alter ego Edina Monsoon, turned on Stella McCartney's Christmas lights this year - before the British designer popped up in the Ab Fab Christmas special - but Stella opted for the more traditional form of Natalia Vodianova for her spring/summer 2012 campaign.
"How cool was that," Joanna Lumley enthused as soon as the cameras were turned off. "Such a fabulous shoot in the glorious jewellery from Alexis; it was sensational and I am thrilled with the pieces I have from his generous talented hands. Patsy was transfixed by the quality and wants lots more forever. I hope the campaign rocks: I am a fan for life."
