Fashion designer Pierre Cardin has died aged 98. He invented the bubble dress in 1954, and was the costume designer for Patrick Macnee’s John Steed in The Avengers, as well as Roger Moore’s James Bond. Cardin’s name was international in fashion. Yours truly was once nearly knocked onto the line at Glasgow Hillhead by a woman absent-mindedly swinging a Pierre Cardin bag. He was picked by 19 teams, including Death Stinks, Black Penguins of Doom, and Deathlist themselves, whose main score of 20/50 on their website is a record breaker.
