Camden Fringe: U Are What U Wear, Etcetera Theatre - ★★★ - Until August 19, 2019


Nafflix TV fashion personality, PiXii Malone is the alter ego of impersonator, Kate Bell. In her show, the influencer introduces us to a variety of guests. We meet a Russian fashion guru, a fashion agony aunt, a fitness specialist, a super-fan contest winner, a "serious" reporter of fashion, and others. They are all apparently different, but are tied together by their love of being 'in' and by an air-headedness that had the audience roaring with laughter. This satiric look at our current obsession with the rich, the famous and the stylish sometimes seemed a little heavy-handed and rather predictable, but there was a lot of energy here and some good shots at our obsession with trends and the lives of the trendy. It all ends with a song-eulogy for Karl Lagerfeld. However, as we all know, the pony tail of yesterday is the man-bun of tomorrow. Plus que ça change...
