“My darling Krystle…”

Years ago, Spy magazine ran an article discussing the “irony epidemic,” including examples of fake irony vs. irony – which they labeled as “camp lite” vs “true camp.” And to this day, I still remember this, the very best one of all as it perfectly sums up the difference between the two:

Camp lite – Giving someone a copy of Jackie Collins’s Hollywood Wives as a joke gift.

True camp – Buying a gown from The Dynasty Collection and wearing Forever Krystle toilet water.

Though really this is just an excuse to post this amazing ad (Thanks, Jean!).

La fontaine d’élégance!

I think I remember seeing this in the gardens at Versailles. Or maybe it’s where Krystal and Alexis had that big fistfight..?
