Jenny from the block
When I used to work at the ITN Building I left the coat hanging up on the communal coat rack - I caught one of the IT guys trying it on. Now I am tiny, but he was even tinier! He got into it and strutted his stuff, hitching his trousers and walking with a limp is a faux down with the hood attitude. I saw the funny side as he clearly loved that coat. But I never did wear it back to that office....its not flattering if a man can get into your clothes...nuff said!
Anyway back to the coat - its looks pretty much like the one Jennifer Lopez wore in the film 'Shall we Dance'. Although she mentions its vintage and is totally distraught when a dance student drops her greasy food all over it - those in the know snigger, as its really by Dolce & Gabbana. I truly loved this movie, I went to the Premiere and saw it twice afterwards. I managed to get tickets from the office (bless the House of Mouse) and took a girlfriend along. We had such a hoot walking up the red carpet, Tess Daly was interviewing the celebs as they were passing by. We had to stop right behind Esther Rantzen, escorted by Rob Byran, it was the year she was a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing. The people filming made us wait behind them as they didn't want us in the shot. It was a little unnerving waiting in front of the paps, fans and camera crew. As the Premiere was also a charity event - It was on over two Odeon screens with a 15 minute delay in order for the Director and Richard Gere to move between the cinemas and introduce the movie & read a sorry letter from JoLo who could not be there that night. Richard Gere - an actor not normally registering on my hottie radar, but my goodness that man, on that night made all us girls swoon. He has so much presence and charisma. I was right in the front row and felt quite flushed! We were all taking pics on our mobile's and texting our mum's. It was a great night and I bored D to tears when I got home raving about just how wonderful and warm Richard Gere is.
