“Bore Off” – Corrie’s Helen Flanagan was onto something with this phrase on IACGMOOH. Perfectly sums up how we want to reply to some people/brands who take le p.

Molami twine headphones – Chic as chic does.
Jean Paul Gaultier – Anyone for Junior Gaultier Part Deux? JPG recently announced plans for a diffusion line in collaboration with Italian manufacturer Ittierre S.p.A. Watch this space for further details.
The David Gandy Fitness phone app – The Cindy-Crawford-‘Buns of Steel’ of NOW, only way hotter.
Louis Vuitton’s Lockit jewellery collection – Fancy a bit of bling for Christmas? Vuitton’s modern-yet-romantic collection of necklaces, rings, and bracelets in 18-carat white, rose, and yellow gold with pave diamonds is a good a place to start as any. Inspired by the legend of the Pont des arts bridge in Paris where couples attach a padlock to the bridge and throw the key into the water for their love to be sealed forever.
Ivory Tower Princesses – Because it’s so much easier to be po-faced and self-righteous when you’re a household name and television star, or have an Oscar-winning actor for a husband. It’s time for a reality check, and to start considering the restraints of ordinary people’s lives.

John Travolta and Olivia Newton John’s ‘I Think You Might Like It’ – The song itself isn’t completely terrible, but the accompanying video, featuring some of the worst plastic surgery ever, some of the worst production values ever, and some line-dancing soldiers, sent Team Chutzpah running screaming to his ‘Grease’ DVD.
Victoria’s Secret – Overpriced and finally over here, we had a stroll around the Bond Street store and struggle to see what all the fuss is about. Exclusively aimed at men and girls who collected ”My Little Ponies. We could list five better underwear brands at a similar sufficiently pricey, price-point.
‘Viva Forever’ – Unlike America, Prince Charles, and Rubbish Gays of a certain age we’ve always despised the Spice Girls and their hollow take on feminism, a ‘Sisterhood’ which pretty much backfired on everyone involved thanks to monstrous egos and an insatiable thirst for tabloid coverage. We’re led to believe that Jennifer Saunders’ West End show is as awful as we expected it to be as even Victoria looked bored to tears. But, it’s worth checking out the ‘Viva Forever’ inspired afternoon tea at Harvey Nichols’s Fifth Floor restaurant, which looks far more enjoyable than any Spice Girls musical and much more classy.
