both my colleagues are well connected (clean) fashion industry people and last london fashion week i made a note about these showroom models who had the dirtiest feet and toes i have EVER seen
my female colleague defended both the models i was talking about saying that its nothing, its just the way they think and live. its part of their i dont try too hard look!!!! you know, the Pete D's and the Amy W's...
im tellin ya all, if this is england then im speechless!!!!
(all taken with a hint of salt
You can't look at Pete Doherty and Amy Winehouse and argue that they represent social realism and what is being shown in the film 'This Is England', because first of all they are upper-middle class and secondly it is an 'image' for them and therefore an 'act'.
'This Is England' is social realism, it is a film about the REAL working class - which in this view at the time were skinheads. The real working class are not what I would label as 'chavs' (because to me they are the underclass as the majority do not work). But the real working class are those that are living on council estates and working bloody hard to survive, having 'hard' looking faces come with their tough, hard and often short lives (due to their occupation). They are too tired to worry about image and too tough to take ****, they are use to knock backs and I respect them because they do the jobs that we would hate to do.
