Miss Australia

You know the film “This is Spinal Tap”? You know there is a scene where the manager gets annoyed at the interfering of one of the band members girlfriends and describes her as looking like “something from an Australian’s nightmare”. Behold Miss Australia…

The costume, which will be worn by Jesinta Campbell at the competition in Las Vegas next month, features high-heeled Ugg boots, a brown one piece swimming costume hand-painted by an Aboriginal artist and a lamb’s wool shrug. The ensemble is topped off by a voluminous flamenco-inspired rainbow skirt.

Miss Australia herself describes the outfit as “incredible”. She’s not wrong there. I’m not going to call it a travesty for it is indeed an abomination. Truly we must be living at the end of days when comely lasses can be persuaded to wear that!

    It’s possible the creation was foisted upon her by some poncey wannabe designer. Let’s face it, what jiggles along catwalks these days ain’t anything to do with style or even clothing.

    If this unflattering, sheep-shagger flamenco dancer ensemble was the choice of Miss Oz then all I can say is WTF?

    I think you have it in one there Lynne. Poncey designer makes it up as he goes along.
    And the bikini bit was hand painted by an Abbo, so that’s very right on eh?

    Still it could be worse. Is there a Miss Wales in the competition? If so, have a butchers at what my fellow countrywoman will be stuck with!

    I hope Miss Wales isn’t the second image on the right. Who’d want to vote for someone who looks like Stan Laurel in drag?

    Yup, poncey designer, and no little boy around to declare the King naked…
