Delightful British Television: ‘Gok’s Fashion Fix’

Last night a new show aired on Channel 4 in the U.K. called Gok’s Fashion Fix. It’s a fashion variety show starring stylist Gok Wan (of the original How to Look Good Naked) and Alexa Chung, one of the U.K.’s favorite fashionistas. And we are so jealous it’s not showing here. Sure, it’s really cheesy, really pink, and really gay, but isn’t that what you want from a fashion variety show?

In the first episode Chung pays a visit to Roberto Cavalli in his Florence home, where she meets his pet dog, parrot, and monkey. Oh what we would have given to see Roberto padding around in his slippers! Sadly we can’t watch the full episode on Channel 4’s Website, since we’re not in the U.K. or the Republic of Ireland. Bollocks! The site promises we can get our fix by watching clips from last night until we “come ashore,” but those aren’t working either. Double bollocks! Fortunately good ol’ YouTube has a clip from the show. It’s the segment where Gok goes through Geri Halliwell’s “dirty laundry” — in other words, some of the tackiest clothes she’s worn. Click through to watch the clip.
