absolutely fabulous: the movie is jam-packed with fashion cameos
From Kate Moss and Jourdan Dunn to Jean Paul Gaultier and Stella McCartney, expect to see all your favourite fashion faces.
Excitement for the Ab Fab movie has been building for some time, since Jennifer Saunders announced last April that everyone's favourite comedy duo were set to hit the big screen. News has surfaced that Edina and Patsy's wardrobe will include pieces from Vivienne Westwood and Shrimps and speculation has been stirring about which celebs will make an appearance. Today, the full list of over 60 A-listers from the acting, music and fashion worlds who will be joining Edina and Patsy has been revealed, and it's got more famous faces than front row at fashion week.
Supermodels Kate Moss, Lara Stone, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Cole and Jerry Hall join designers including Jean Paul Gaultier, Stella McCartney, Pam Hogg, Ozwald Boateng and Giles Deacon, actor Gwendoline Christie, top fashion journalist Suzy Menkes, London's wildest dresser Daniel Lismore and club DJ Jodie Harsh.
There are also appearances from Joan Collins, Perez Hilton, Spice Girl Emma Bunton, Lulu, La Roux, Alexa Chung, Daisy Lowe, Suki Waterhouse and Tinie Tempah. We expect to see some major on screen fashion parties, especially after that image of Kate Moss on set went viral, fag and champagne glass in hand, wading through the Thames with a look of true Ab Fab glamour.
Even war reporter Orla Guerin and politics journalist/interrogator Jeremy Paxman have been included in the mix, possibly hinting that an international incident could go down. The film has already been criticised for its use of 'yellowface,' casting a white, female actor as male Asian designer Huki Muki.
Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie will be released across the UK & Ireland on 1 July 2016.
