    We're hooked on TV3's Outrageous Fortune prequel Westside, and while the show is great, yes, we'd watch it for Rita West's styling alone.

    With big lashes, bigger hair and sharp black winged eyeliner, her whole vibe is a bogan 1970s dream.

    Personally, we want to look like this every day, if you do too, here's how.

    Expectations are a weird thing. They can transform a mediocre show into an acceptable one if they're low enough. Conversely, they can turn a fantastic show into an okay one by being too high.

    I've watched no new show in the last decade with higher expectations than the ones I sat down with to watch the debut of Outrageous Fortune prequel Westside at the weekend - and I'm delighted to say nearly every one was met.
