Having heard the audacious claim that ‘every walk is a catwalk’, Mini Smith and Xanthe Fuller, self-professed (and probably incorrectly) style correspondents, thought they would test this theory in every walk of life. Following a short and spontaneous brain-storm, Mini and Xanthe took to the most obvious catwalk of all. With long strips of grey linoleum upon which one must sashay regularly and a plethora of fashionable individuals on the hunt for their daily bread, we hit the Sainsbury’s aisles to search for the tastiest style in town, and my oh my, it was tasty.
Hannah and Beth, Sidney third years
Has your style changed with third year?
B: I think I’ve just stopped trying as hard as I did in first year. In first year, I was very conscious of what I was wearing, but now if I like something I buy it regardless of style.
Do you have any style icons?
H: Millie Mackintosh.
How would you describe your style?
B: I pretty much just stick with black, white and grey, but I’m a big fan of pastel pink. So, everything I own is either black or pastel pink.
And finally: if your style were a supermarket item, what item would it be? We feel like you are tasty but essential.
B: Egg-noodles, ready for a stir fry!
H: I don’t know, I normally wear a lot of pink, so…
B: You’re definitely that bright pink Smirnoff sorbet.
