Dame Edna Everage turns 75 this week…


THE DAME’S FASHION DECONSTRUCTED

1. Her unique hairstyle was highly influential on a young Mrs Thatcher
2. She single-handedly made spectacles sexy, modern and young
3. The slash of bright red lipstick makes her a Warhol portrait made flesh
4. A gladioli thrust skyward like a floral sceptre conveys majesty
5. This alarm-bell red, panne velvet dress is sexy not sluttish
6. She blazed a trail for women of a certain age to reclaim short skirts
7. Dripping in jewellery, she snubbed the twinsets and pearls of her peers
8. The American tan tights are now the choice of supermodels
9. A simple yet stylish classic silver pump commonly worn by the Queen
