Once upon a time, in the dim and distant past – around 2010 – you were no one on the front row of a fashion show unless you were dressed up to the nines. Eveningwear was quite acceptable at 9am, couture was alpha-wear and 5in heels were the minimum requirement. Fastforward to the autumn/winter 2013 shows. Fashion editors sprang from one event to another wearing hightop trainers, while the humble sweatshirt was preferred over any ballgown. Fashion, you see, has loosened up. Forget extreme heels and cocktail dresses. Trainers (Air Max) and sweatshirts (Givenchy) are now the waiting-list items and the tomboy – as interpreted by Cara Delevingne – has replaced glamourpuss as the feminine ideal.
It's YouTube Comedy Week, as anyone who looks at advertising on the side of London buses will know. For the rest of this week, we can expect videos and performances posted at the online video channel by the cream of American and British standup. Stars include Sarah Silverman, Andy Samberg (star of BBC3's Cuckoo and the Stateside favourite Saturday Night Live), Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson and more, alongside a host of internet comedy names, including the Onion and Epic Rap Battles of History. It is "the biggest single comedy event in history", says Justin Gayner, executive producer of Comedy Week in the UK, citing YouTube's one billion monthly users.
