The Edina appreciation topic

Can you imagine watching AbFab is like heaven for me? Not only I can enjoy Joanna's fabulous acting, but Jen's in it as well. Two for the price of one!

She's hyperactive, disorganised and gets what she wants by shouting loud enough, but I do love Edina.

Re: The absolutely fabulous Eddie

I was thinking, actually Eddie, as well as Patsy, ARE truly nasty people. If I met her in real life I would absolutely hate her. She represents every single thing I detest.

But then again this is jsut what makes her character hilarious. And in a away so very British.

Re: The absolutely fabulous Eddie

Oh yes, such a great pairing...a match made in heaven!
I don't think I've seen that particular pic before maartje!

Yes they are nasty, but I don't think Eddie really means to be. The way she acts is the only way she knows how. I think deep down (probably very deep) she cares about people other than herself, but doesn't know how to portray this...and obviously Patsy's friendship is far more important!

Re: The absolutely fabulous Eddie

I don't think I've seen that first picture before either! :great:
I agree Gianna, in real life I'd probably loathe a person like Edina or Patsy, because they're so grotesque. But on screen it just works so well, because secretly we all would like to be like them every now and then :lol:

Haha, that is beautifully put babe. (''you could put that on a sticker or something!") And yeah, you're all right actually: I'd despite them too, but on the other hand, you can even see that in the series. But the fact that they're constantly supporting each other it literally everything they do, makes them more grotesque. Did you ever notice how Edina almost becomes normal when Patsy's in hospital?

I'm convinced that Edina really is ''good'' in some ways: Pats, on the other hand, is a total bitch, but that has probably something to do with her youth too. These little flashbacks are so funny that you almost forget they actually have a meaning (I think) as they sort of explain the nasty characteristics of Patsy's character.

Re: The Edina appreciation topic

Hahah I truly do! The partnership between Edina and Patsy is just one of the best ever, you can't help but love them!

Edina's wardrobe is pretty special too, but I love the Pucci clothes she wears, for example, the whole Pucci outfit in Iso Tank (outburst at Saffy scene :D)
"Darling, sweetie, darling!"

Re: The Edina appreciation topic

Haha, well '''special'' is a rather flattering way to describe her wardrobe. :lol: The clothing itself isn't really that hideous, it's just that she matches literally everything. I'm really still suprised the designers let Jennifer wear all their stuff - Lacroix must have a good sense of humour!
