THAT OZYMANDIAS MOMENT: We couldn't help but notice when we popped into the National Portrait Gallery at the weekend that there was a massive swarm of people in front of Julian Opie's Blur portraits. Unfortunately, they were all standing with their backs to them, peering at Marino Testino's work on the other wall. Alex, Damon, Dave and Graham didn't get a single glance the whole time we were watching.

(While we're on the subject of the NPG, it's nice to see they've got an exhibition celebrating British designers, even if they don't seem to understand what is so important about their work in the first place - James Dyson is described as having invented "the first bagless vacuum cleaner", which is on a par with describing Benz and Daimler as having created the first steam engine that didn't run on rails. Ask Nicky Wire. He'd understand.)
