Nobel banquet

Post by Northerner on Tue Dec 11, 2012 8:04 am

Well, been that time of the year again, lots of gentlemen in tails and about no ladies. For the first time, one of the invited female students (acting as ushers of a sort) chose to wear tails instead of a gown, to make a LBGT statement about how a garment doesn't belong to one gender etc. A laudable intention, but I would definitely advise her to find one in her own size and try to make it look at least a little classy for the occasion if she wants to be taken seriously.Razz

Also, Swedish television made a program series discussing the prizes and interviewing winners, and the 4 female presenters wore tails in the promo materials. Unfortunately, only two of them bothered to put on ties. What a trendy fashion statement, not.

Finally, Swedish minister of culture Lena Liljeroth wore a tailcoat with her dress for last years festivities, but she neglected to include the interesting part. I've rectified this oversight in photoshop:D

Well, if you have Replay Media Catcher or Jaksta you can download the interview clip without problems. (I haven't kept it since I don't care much for ill-fitting suits:) )
The trailer is a bit harder - I've recorded it with Camstudio but I missed a setting and got no sound; I'm not bothered with missing that so if you're ok with a silent clip you can get it here:
rapidshare.com nobelstudion%20no%20sound.avi

Also, I remade that edit to get a pic with more natural lighting/sharpness; here it is.

Actually, I've seen a pic of this lady wearing a bow tie for real - it was for some event many years ago, she was wearing a yellow satin bow tie directly around her neck (shirtless, that is) with a yellow jacket and black overcoat if my memory serves. Unfortunately I haven't got it anymore....
