You probably know about Simon Doonan : author, fashion commentator, and creative ambassador for Barneys New York...
But did you know there’s a BBC TV series (Beautiful People) based on his memoirs ?
This show wasn’t even on my radar until British Jon mentioned it in this post. The same post in which Jon describes his meeting with the talented Jonathan Harvey: writer of Beautiful People and so much more.
And Mitzi posted this comment on my blog, leaving me to wonder WTF she was talking about…until I saw the show, that is…
Gin Gin where do I begin
Having you inside me
Is like an old friend popping in.
--Debbie Doonan, Beautiful People.
I'm sure many of you can identify with that sentiment.
Thanks to our Mitzi for kindly sending Series One to me on DVD along with the soundtrack CD. I’ve since gone on to watch Series Two and now I want YOU Bitches to see it because I think you’ll enjoy it too. Mistress MJ was hooked from the first episode!
The show focuses on flamboyant 14-year-old Simon and his best friend Kyle (who prefers to be called Kylie); dreaming of the day they’ll escape the dreary suburbs of Reading, England and move to London to live amongst “the Beautiful People.”
Kylie and Simon
So if you Bitches need a pick-me-up on these dark winter nights, give “Beautiful People” a go.
Key word: CAMP!
Here’s the first episode from Season One. If you enjoy it, you can click here to see all the episodes from both series.
If you'd like to read a much more descriptive piece on Beautiful People, I found this post on Jon's blog.
Thank you Jon and Mitzi!
