“Yo, yo, where my Scots at? Peeblesshire HOLLABACK!!!”
If there’s one thing I like more than an amusing fashion show, it’s an amusing fashion show sponsored by a booze company. Thus it was with an audible gasp and a clutch at my heart (normally I prefer a shoulder bag) that I realized my invitation to the Glenfiddich-sponsored “Dressed to Kilt” event had somehow been lost in the mail.
Last night I modeled in Dressed to Kilt, the yearly event which showcases Scottish fashion, the kilt, Scottishness in general and also raises money, this year for war veterans. It was a hoot. The King of Scotland, Sean Connery, was there and I reminded him that the last time I had seen him, in Edinburgh last summer at a dinner thrown by Alex Salmond, the First Minister of Scotland, he had said he would never vote Labour as long as he had a hole in his arse!! Yes, he totally did. I love Sean, and I love that he has lines like that up his sleeve.

Yes, the gods themselves approve of jazz hands. They also approve of this:
The handsome Scot Kyle MacLachlan is shown here NOT wearing the very attractive MacLachlan tartan, a cape of which I once sold him back when I worked with people instead of pixels.
Look! It’s everybody’s favorite silver fox, Sam Waterston!
Dashing! Clashing! Smashing!
A pair of wounded warriors show off the kind of tailoring that made a designer out of Alexander McQueen, among other masters of the form.
Matthew Modine knows there are some things one cannot do in a kilt. For these activities, God has invented knickerbockers. You might just be surprised at what is possible in a kilt.
