'Flying sports cars and imaginary seagulls...'
33 years ago today, Respectable won Best Video Award at the 1987 Montreux - Golden Rose, IMMC Awards Gala. To celebrate this - and the launch of the redesigned website - we present our interview with Simon West, who directed the girls first two videos. Simon has since gone on to direct a number of high profile Hollywood movies, but he still remembers directing the Mel & Kim videos with great fondness. Exclusively to melandkim.com, Simon shares previously unrevealed details, and his own personal photographs, from the Showing Out & Respectable sets - and he also reveals his story-boarded ideas for what would have been the F.L.M. video.

We aim to create a fitting tribute to Mel & Kim Appleby, with the hope that the website becomes a comprehensive archive to the sisters amazing accomplishments and achievments within the entertainment industry.
We would like to thank everyone who has contributed their time, recollections and talents to help us towards acheiving this goal so far and we hope you enjoy the site!
