ABSOLUTELY AWESOME: AbFab’s Jane Horrocks made an appearance at the Vin + Omi show held at Regent’s Park during London Fashion Week on Monday evening. Horrocks — who plays the role of Bubble, Edina Monsoon’s assistant — strutted down the catwalk wearing the designers’ fall 2016 look inspired by nail varnishes.
A first-timer on the catwalk, the designers asked Horrocks to take part. “It’s something I’ve never done before and I thought, ‘oh, that would be quite nice,’” she told WWD. “As they say, it was awesome.”
Horrocks wore a white Empire-waist dress adorned with feather embellishments. “I wanted to wear white,” added the actress, who donned a white wig. “And they said I could. But I didn’t know what it was going be. I only found out on Friday what it was and I loved it. I like the look, the hair. It was great.”
The designers were commissioned to create looks for the movie, including jackets and bags featuring bold bubble designs with cutesy hashtags.
In other AbFab news, model and DJ Daisy Lowe, designers Rifat Özbek and Ada Zanditon and Nik Thakkar of Nik + Ada, will be making cameo appearances.
“Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” is due to be released in select theaters in the U.K. on July 1, in the U.S. on July 22 and in Australia on August 11. The trailer was released last Friday. The movie stars Horrocks, Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley and Joan Collins. Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, Kim Kardashian and Abbey Clancy are set to appear in cameo roles as are Anya Hindmarch, Jean Paul Gaultier and Giles Deacon.
