back to the future with Elsa K.

After mentioning dear old Elsa down there, I had to wonder if anyone else remembers her. I have fond memories of her stilted delivery and posh Australian accent.
Her show was de rigueur each weekend for me. My mother, always the enabler, would wake me up for it. Here's a clip of her (saying "Milan") and looking into the future
(the 90s)

Oh my god, a young Donna Karan!

I used to watch Style with Elsa Klensch religiously... back when I wasn't gay. Yeah right.

I hope you also watched the history of hair through the 80's. Fantastic!

Watched it?
I think I lived it.
And welcome Jim!
(I've been a long time reader of your blog, btw)

I am not all into fashion but I used to watch that show all the time. Now, I am addicted to Project Runway. For awhile there Direct TV had the fashion channel and they had show after show showing models walking down runways. I loved that channel but they got rid of it...sad.
