• Patsy Stone is Edina's best friend. She works for a British fashion magazine in the newly elevated position of Managing Editor. Patsy, who makes no secret of the fact that her CV got to the top of the pile after she slept with the publisher, now has even less work to do than before. She lives on champagne, cigarettes, and a variety of banned substances and is usually responsible for convincing Edina that a bad idea is a good idea.
