back to article Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld and some Apple bloke attend glitzy iPhone 6 Paris launch

Tim Cook has made a bid to colonise the wrists of fashionistas everywhere by holding a series of promotional events for the Apple Watch in the world's most fashionable city. Sadly, he didn't manage to get a place in London and had to make do with Paris instead. Apple ditched the usual "town hall" approach of its product …

      A round watch please, not a square watch with rounded corners.

    I'm sure he just used one of those horrifying selfie-sticks that are sold in all tat shops these days.

      Not sure I've ever seen a selfie stick on sale in an Apple Store.

      I really, really thought he was a creepy waxwork.

      I'm more creeped now I know he's alive.

        One of our clients are doing their Christmas do at Madame Tussauds. The blurb says something about celebs looking on as you dine on your sumptuous meal (yeah right!), and I was wondering how odd it would look to be surrounded by plastic-faced dummies.

        Then I see a picture of Lagerfeld and Wintour, the autons of the fashion world, and realise that it'll be just like being at a real celeb bash.

        I don't understant it. They're both pretty old (late 60s or 70s?), and sure they have no wrinkles on their faces. But guys, we can still see your necks. And anyway, even the youngest of smoothest faced children doesn't have a shiny plastic fizzog like that. Although I suppose plastic is the wrong word. Paralysed into immobility, would be better.

        My theory is that this is what Saddam did with his WMDs. The UN didn't get all of his botulinum toxin in the 90s, and it's not been found since, so I suspect it's all gone into celebrity faces...

      I thought El reg had made a mistake and it was actually a promo still from "The Walking Dead".

      " ... jonny ive's boryfriend .."

      At those events, you've just got to put up with those sort of people for the sake of appearing polite. He probably chatted to someone interesting shortly after the picture was taken.

    I'm amazed

    I didn't know there were any female celebs left who still wanted to be associated with Apple.

    Advertising agencies

    Aren't they telling everybody from Ed Miliband (lost points there, Ed) on up to reference "real people" these days?

    It reinforces my idea that there is only one man doing creative advertising in the whole world, he has one idea at a time and all the franchisees copy it and apply it.

    Marc Newson?

    Scary fashionistas

    Well there's a fecking lineup for the Rocky Horror Picture Show if ever I saw it.

      Re: Scary fashionistas

      I'm thinking of setting up a cosmetic surgery business giving wrinkles to young celebs. The idea being to distinguish them from the weird, old celebs who've basically had their faces ironed smooth with botox. Then the young ones can prove that their smooth good looks are 'real' and 'natural' by sporting just one, strategically placed and attractive laughter line.

      I do wish Keith Richards could have been in the first picture, to give a nice contrast...

    Can't help but think that, despite Apple choosing a hip Paris location during fashion week, the people in the Tim Cook photo would've felt more at home had it been held in McDonalds or Argos.

    Whatever you may think of the phones, those people are total scumbags. Conning people into believing in "fashion" and parting millions of fools from their money on a daily basis.

    So they deserve each other.
