SKINNY JEANS BY Barry McKendrick

The skinny jeans, the urchin look Audrey Hepburn gazes through Naif eternal, black and white Moon river echoes through the night
Mirrored eyes and mirrored shades The latest icon takes her place Adrianna, dark in buxom glory Sophia Loren, the Latin fury

Drugs or fashion, the endless sea

A living wardrobe, a time machine

Select from history, become a star

It doesn’t matter who you are

Dip in the ocean to find your look Consult the library, find the book Fashion the generational touch A feathered boa is never too much – 

Every hairstyle that passes comes upon

The lizard king, the crown of curls

McCulloch poses in backlit splendour

While Elvis whispers Love Me Tender

There is no start and end to fashion What once was law is now opinion No one can tell you who you are Cos from now on baby, you’re the star
