Camshots: Pretty in Pink

By on

"Look at my fucking pink trousers" may not have the same ring to it, but works better for TOMMY SHANE and GRACE FARMILOE.

Are you in pink? Because pink is in. In fact, pink is so in, that the word ‘in’ is in the word ‘pink’.

As Joy Starkey advised us last term, pastels generally are in this summer. But walking round Cambridge this weekend, we found lots of people donning pink trousers to get summery but stay warm. Pink trousers may well be the answer to the disastrous overkill of red chinos, for which Cambridge is apparently famous.

Alex, 2nd year Geographer at Downing – She even coordinated the shopping bag

Jess, 2nd Geographer at Murray Edwards – If you look really closely, she’s also got pink nails. Love it.

Amy Bennet, 2nd year Natsci at Homerton

Ed, Law fresher at Jesus – Ok, so they look red, but I promise they are pink

Harrie, Natsci fresher at Homerton

Alice, 2nd year Historian at Murray Edwards

Mannequin, at Jack Wills – Jack Wills: secret trendsetter?

  • Oh man

    Now I'm going to have to get back to the charity shop to find some newly non-ubiquitous trousers. (First world problems) Might go for a zingy yellow ones, channel Rupert the Bear.

    • hmm


    • Tourtel

      You want to be careful or you might end up looking like Podgy Pig.

  • Really?

    Most of these aren't pink. Numbers 2, 3, 4 & 6 spring to mind.

    • Well,

      Number 2 is CORAL. Which is pink.

      • Well, no

        Coral is CORAL – not pink

    • perhaps

      someone was having a little too much fun with photoshop?

  • Mr Rainbow

    Only 3/7 of those trousers are actually pink, if we're going to be picky about it.

    • pinky fan

      i think you're being very perpinkity indeed!

    • pink

      is not a colour of the rainbow

  • Amy Bennett

    There's bile behind my smile.

  • Lippalicious

    What a babe

  • next week, people wearing jeans.

  • John

    Red trousers were originally worn by sailors in the merchant navy who had done an atlantic crossing.

    • Caleb

      Pretty sure there was red trousers way before an atlantic crossing but you can say whatever floats your boat.

      • Grammar Police

        Pretty sure there WERE red trousers.

  • why

    does your camera turn pink into orange?

  • Severe

    lack of talent.

    • …..says

      the guy who is so fit, he has to use tab fashion to scout for talent…..

      • Severe

        Doesn't stop it being true though does it?

  • Critic

    And none of them look good in them.

  • Oh dear

    So there were so few people actually wearing pink you had to resort to taking pictures of a mannequin in a shop window…

  • Yes

    Harrie from Homerton.

    • Yes

      Ellie from Homerton

      • please

        shut up you two

  • Considering there's a store on almost every highstreet, I highly doubt Jack Wills will ever be a "secret" trendsetter, and given that the mannequin is in boot cut jeans and AN ANORACK, I would question whether it's actually a trendsetter at all, seeing as both (thankfully) died a death in the 90's. It's a good job the majority of people in this article had the good sense to avoid such disastrous dressing and chose to wear, oh that's right, trousers that AREN'T PINK.


    bags are supposed to be orange – thanks for photoshopping the fuck out of these.

    • But Superdrug bags

      are supposed to be pink.

    • umm superdrug bags are pink though?

    • Haha

      You twat.

  • love it

  • Sam Winward

    Noodle Tired!

    • Sam Winward

  • MacFarlane

  • Sam Winward

    That Alex girl hurts my shoulder when we go at it. She is peng though.

  • Childsy

    I'm nursIng a semi about that Amy girl.


    Do fashion article titles really need to pun on 'cumshots'?

  • Converted Jew

    I changed my religion after a holiday to Israel with Alex. I'm sure you can all see why!

  • OMG


    • Sam Winward

      No, that's my Alex.

  • Biology Max


  • is it me

    or does amy bennett look like a 12-year-old girl?

    • Agreed

      A 12-year-old girl with an agenda.

      • or indeed

        *puts on sunglasses*



  • umm

    All the pervy comments above make my skin crawl

  • alex jones

    you'd all get it

  • tugrulhan

    i don t understand anything

  • LOOK!


  • Everyday Normal Guy.

    Jennifer Krase needs to sort her life out…she’s the real racist if she’s so pathetically worried about someone being offended by that.

  • LowPoint

    Is Jennifer aware she lives in Scotland? In Alec Salmon, home of the West’s most overtly racist Head of State/county/region/principality.

    • Josh

      Seriously? What has Alex Salmond got to do with this?

      • LowPoint


  • Disappointed.

    Leaking an email from a staff member (who sent an email by mistake and has no right of reply when things are written about her) is pretty fucking low. Get this shit out of the Tab.

    • Donald Trump

      Sounds like you hold a personal grudge. Calm down. Think about what you say before you say it.

    • Guest

      I’m afraid I couldn’t disagree more.

  • Disappointed.

    There’s also just loads of wrong stuff in here. Emma isn’t AUSA President, nor is she in charge of decisions about elections materials. Who writes this crap?

    • The Tab Aberdeen

      The article has been corrected.

    • Sir Ian Diamond

      Are you that guy from AUSA who’s a bit mental? No-one cares what you think.

  • M H

    How is this even remotely racist? What is this country coming to.

    • T Ac

      See my comment above. I Agree!!!

  • T Ac

    I agree. This is purely a smear campaign with no foundation whatsoever. This article should be taken down. Its ridiculous

    • T Ac

      Ergun is an amazing person and candidate!

      • The Tab Aberdeen

        Your feeling about the campaign is your own – doesn’t mean this article should be removed.

        • T Ac

          What I meant is that this article is also based on a smear campaign and is detrimental to one of the candidates in an election. Therefore contributing a point that is highly debatable as can be seen from the comments

          • X

            This is not a smear campaign, it is merely stating the facts. The campaign is racially and culturally insensitive, and the Tab has the right to pick up on that. The fact that he didn’t know that his campaign could be perceived as offensive proves that he is not very aware and should not be representing the diverse student body of AU.

          • The Tab Aberdeen

            The article isn’t detrimental – it’s a news story.

            • M Ri

              “Regardless of this, it must be questioned why the Elections Committee allowed for the campaign to go public in the first place if it was going to cause such a stir.” Thats not a fact its a suggestion.

    • Jalapeño

      I found it unnecessarily racist despite the fact that the candidate has been a friend of mine for four years

  • SR

    Racist or not (and this totally is) it’s fucking stupid. Stereotypical ‘Native American’ headdresses and ‘tribal themed’ music to make some messed up point about societies as tribes – just recycling offensive tropes (offensive to the people from First Nations’ backgrounds who should actually get a say in whether pretending their culture is a fucking costume is offensive) in some bullshit campaign. Stupid white people, get over yourselves with your “aww this isn’t offensive I’m so upset” crybaby attitude.

    • MRi

      But then again, there you are assuming people are white. Hmmm that’s not racist at all.

      • ST

        Are you white? Cause you can totally shut the fuck up about what’s racist or not if you are. White people don’t experience racism and can get over themselves tbh.

  • xx

    This is not racist. Nevertheless, Ergun’s campaign is cheap.
