Stella Of Silbury, Sending Out Space: SOS… x2… Voulez-Vous… Knowing Me Knowing You?

Having seen the Silbury Hill mystery POP (PinkyOrangePurple) cloud that looked like rocket smoke yesterday, and then finding this StellaDrone epic space music today, some (neurons in my mind, like the Numskulls of comic fame, and Inside Out characters of movie stardom) are wondering if it was Stella Lagerwolf-Bruno of the greenYgrey world (inspired by Stella McCartney, Karl Lagerfeld and Sacha Baron-Cohen’s Bruno character) who’d POPed in to visit Silbury.

AAW Autumn Special: Maths Fashion Football for Socrates Fans

Receiving a like from a lovely fashion blogger reminded me of Stacey Dooley’s investigation into the fashion industry. While there was a lot of bad news in the programme, I was delighted that fashion influencer, Niomi Price, was inspired to cut down on her consuming, and try to persuade her many followers; now I know where AAW hang out… instead of here!; to do the same. I’m glad to say the greenYgrey was right behind Niomi Price as she met Stacey Dooley to see the results of her investigation into fashion pollution:

Maybe Niomi Price can be the autumn AAW after Pernille Harder has done a great job since the summer, including knocking in a brace for Wolfsburg Women in the first leg of the European Cup quarter-final v Athletico Madrid:

Maths Mixed Up: Good for Socrates Followers

Hannah Fry’s documentary trilogy into Maths had a great greenYgrey introduction to the last quarter hour of the series:

Photosynthesis is dear to the greenYgrey heart, with the sight of sun meeting leaves one of my favourites in nature. But as a non-science (more nonsense!) doctor of philosophy I’m only just learning about it really, so was glad to see Prof. Olaya-Castro explaining that even she and top scientists don’t understand the process yet, and that it is more about quantum mechanics.

And good for Socrates followers like me, especially his assertion that the wisest people are those who know they know little, 2500 years after his life, Hannah Fry concluded that she thinks there are two scientific truths leading parallel lives in our world: the human maths such as Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, and the quantum mechanics world that is beyond it, and doesn’t behave as Einstein predicted.

While I disagree with the BBC a lot, they are the providers of most of my documentaries, although I think I have learnt a lot more about controversial theories (space and history) from other channels, such as Quest and Yesterday.

It is also a little hypocritical of me to criticise fashion while being a book writer, but I do and will try and cover it by contributing to charities such as the Woodland Trust. When I started the greenYgrey it was mainly for charitable reasons, although I didn’t want the pressure and responsibility of being a non-profit. The same still holds true, although there seems a neverending human tide of misery and pollution, and there doesn’t seem much hope of limiting it in the future… big new plans for more roads and housing in the south-east this morning isn’t going to help things!

Escape with the greenYgrey, and I’ll continue having my say, and to charity pay… the (Niomi) Price is right

Tour de France Le Grand Depart Coincidence

Last week we reported the Tour de France Le Grand Depart Le Grand Coincidence, with Yorkshire also using a yellow Y like the greenYgrey, and focusing on yellowing the greenYgrey Yorkshire countryside in celebration of the world’s longest cycling race starting in the English county of Wensleydale cheese and many a golden summer ale.

Hi, it’s Paco Wolfsang, satirical comedy fashionista apprentica with another sweetly soporific sorty into the world of greenYgrey fashion, packed with high season hues guaranteed to put a smile on your slacks.

The coincidences kept coming on the day of the race too you know, and one was of particular interest to the fashion department in the greenYgrey.

That was Princess Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, starting the official race at Harewood House with princes William and Harry in the greenygrey outfit made famous on this year’s Oz tour, where she visited many places made famous by Grey on its epic virtual ramble across all parts of Australia in Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

After a wet Friday afternoon and Saturday morning the thick clouds cleared by the time Le Grand Depart sent the 198 cyclists off on their epic Tour.

This made it a sunshine after the rain day in line with the Berri dance anthem adopted by the greenYgrey in May this year.

World Cup Football and Ascot Ladies Day Fashion

An ab fab sporting summer is continuing with World Cup 2014 football in Brazil starring, the Wimbledon tennis tournament starting on Monday, and the Ascot horse racing meeting finishing today. It was ladies day at Ascot on Thursday, and there was some great greenYgrey fashion there, while Brazil continues to lead the greenYgrey fashion stakes in their World Cup.

Hi, it’s Stella Lagerwolf-Bruno and Paco Wolfsang with a double-header satirical comedy sports fashion report from Brazil and Blighty.

In a great greenYgrey balanced sports report we are therefore mixing men’s and women’s fashion, to try and maintain gender equality, and with no hint of any sexuality.

Brazil World Cup Fashion

Hi, it’s Stella virtually live from Brazil, inspired by Stella McCartney (who we love, in a darling way), Karl Lagerfeld (ambivalent darling), Bruno (love darling), wolves and lager.

Brazil’s Julio Cesar continues to lead the greenYgrey fashion stakes way in Brazil, with a great greenYgrey goalie shirt, but he’s being pushed closely by a member of the Brazilian defence, Dani Alves, who has dyed his hair grey. Blending in with the green and yellow of his shirt it creates a great greenYgrey effect.

Cesar and Alves helped Brazil achieve a clean sheet as they drew 0-0 with Mexico.

World Cup Kits

There are lots of other greenYgreyesque goalie shirts on view at the World Cup, with most mostly green, and others mostly grey.

Iran kept a clean sheet with their latter such shirt in their first game, and Switzerland won their first game 2-1 with theirs.

However, despite Benaglio’s fine penalty save, Switzerland went down 5-2 to France last night.

Iran’s goalie is likely to be busy tonight as well, as they face Argentina.

That’s about it from me, and I’ll now hand you over to the capable hands of Paco over in Blighty.

Ascot Ladies Day Fashion

Hi, it’s Paco, inspired by Paco Rabanne, who makes exceedingly good perfumes etc. While a lot of you might think Stella got the best assignment, virtually travelling to Brazil, it is winter in the southern hemisphere, while it is summer in the northern; although it’s hot all year round in northern Brazil, as it’s close to the equator.

The sunny weather we’ve been enjoying in Blighty this month certainly brought the ladies out blossoming at Ascot, and together with the racecourse foliage this created some great greenYgrey fashion.

Here’s a couple of ab fab examples of the great new greenYgrey image, followed by an ab fab classic greenygrey:

There’s loads of great sport to gamble on over the next fortnight, but it’s only for over-18s (in the U.K. anyway), and please gamble responsibly.

London Fashion Show Satirical Comedy Highlights

London fashion week has been such a whirl Naomi Mdudu beat me to the breaking story in yesterday’s Metro. Yes, it’s all over now, and it was such a wonderful whirlwind my mind feels like my House of Holland clogs hardly clattered the catwalk crowd kerfuffle, but my legs tell me something else.

Good morning fashionistas, it’s Stella Lagerwolf-Bruno, comedy-satire fashionista suprema @ Greenygrey central, inspired by Stella McCartney, Karl Lagerfeld, Bruno and Stella beer; and Ab Fab, which featured lots of women being very funny in my kind of world.

Talking of brands, as I will be soon, I think Jo Brand is funny too.

London Fashion Week Highlights

Looking back through my notes, I’ve picked out five fantastic five-days February festival (using five words beginning with F… well, six or seven now!) greenygrey highlights. Ciao fashionistas…

London Fashion Week Highlights

Hi, it’s Paco Wolfsang, apprentice fashionista at the Greenygrey, and somewhat similar to Paco Rabanne in the human world. Stella Lagerwolf-Bruno wanted to keep some interstellar space between herself and her great fashion rival and parallel Stella McCartney this week, so she sent me to the London Fashion Show.

I’m so glad now, because I had a great time at the show, which sadly ended today. Unfortunately, there was little greenygrey in the Stella McCartney collection, or Autumn/Winter 2013 collections, but there was lots in the Spring/Summer 2014 collection; suggesting fashion designers think of the greenygrey as suiting bright sunny weather, which is the image we like at the Greenygrey. Here’s some greenygrey highlights:

London Fashion Week Highlights

Talking of greenygrey highlights, this model for Ostwald Helgason seems to have great green highlights and a nice green scarf, greenygreying nicely with the surrounding decor.

Ostwald Helgason collection

The best collection of greenygrey though was most certainly provided by Peter Pilotto’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
