where is souixsie souix in all of this, by the way?!?
i guess the music was not technically punk...
but she was definitely part of that scene and friends with all the bands being featured...

I hope Tilda turns up dressed as David Bowie.

softie,siouxsie certainly made her own indelible influence early on being part of that whole movement and running round with the pistols amongst the "bromley contingent". and the music early on was certainly derived from the punk movement especially the scream and join hands eras. so yes she is criminally ignored from this!!

as for the invite list...looks like a lot of boring same ol,same ol to me. but should get some definite attention.

That is the most hideous, amateurish invitation I have ever seen. I'm starting to feel like a lot of people who should be involved in this show will simply be forgotten about. There are just too many people to recognize in regard to the punk movement...

You guys think they'll have a livestream for the red carpet again ? Because the guest list really sounds amazing.

let's just hope that they actually wear something appropriate this time...
and in keeping with the theme...

cause hardly anybody wore anything even remotely punk inspired when the them was anglomania...

and if the show is about how punk has influenced fashion today and no one wears anything remotely punk, well...
i'd call that an epic fail on everyone's part...

Is that really the guest list, though? Remember when when a list leaked a few years ago and it was really just the Benefit Committee? Loads of people from Keira Knightley to Cate Blanchett were on that and they didn't turn up.

And no one ever really dresses for the theme (unless you are called Christina Ricci).

that list does seem pretty random and out of the sky. i saw serena and venus on there and i know for a fact that both are playing a tournament at madrid that week...which is mandatory. so they will definitely not be present at all.

but i don't think anybody will really dress up like that unless tilda or chole sevigny shows up. i can kind of see them playing into the punk spirit but most everybody else i imagine will only be there for a great photo op.
