COMPETITION/GIVEAWAY THINGY...

I'm giving away a copy (thanks Penguin!) of The Meaning of Sunglasses - A Guide to (Almost) All Things Fashionable, written by Hadley Freeman, deputy fashion editor of the Guardian and contributor to Vogue. I'll let the winner make up their own mind about the book, but it's a very light read, full of pithy fashion related observations that are best taken in small bite size chunks.

To win the book, look at the following picture of well dressed young groovers at a fancy dress party, taken sometime in the early 1980s.


The first person to correctly identify which partygoer is me in the comments gets the book. This is not quite as easy as it sounds, since I am not given to flooding the internet with images of my likeness.

So, from left to right, am I:

1) Little Red Riding Hood
2) Miss Japanese
3) Wonderwoman
4) A Bee
5) Brown paper bag person

Good luck!
I'll announce the winner on Friday (don't forget to include an email/link so I can contact you)

I'm thinking Wonderwoman. Something about her stance. That, and she's clearly predicting the leggings trend years in advance ; )

Brings back happy memories of fancy dress parties in the 80s! Proper home made costumes... not like the fancy shop bought things they have these days!

I'm just going to give a guess...Is it 3 - Wonderwoman? Just because I love her costume...and that fab gold crown!

Hope you're having a better day today.

omg-- this is the cutest photo ever-- what a fabulous bunch of costumes-- man, I have NO idea what you were into then so can only extrapolate from the fashion savant you are now and guess the Japanese girl since perhaps you were studying the drape and fabrics of kimonos as a young fashionista?
