Yes, this atomic space age crimplene jumpsuit was apparently made famous by Diana when she played Emma Peel in the Avengers (1965-68)

I abso-fucking-lutely loved her in The Avengers!!! I watched that show in the late 80s - they were doing the re-runs of many awesome Brit shows, and TheA's were among them. I wanted to be capable and gorgeous as Emma Peel when I grow up.

Just check her out!!! The sassyness, amazingness, badassery, the great hair... it's all there! And she was good at weapons, and she was great in archery and in fencing! In fencing, people!!!

PS
Refused to watch the movie with Uma Thurman in it. There's one Emma Peel for me, and that will forever remain unchanged.

The amazingness. I had no idea about the glory of Emma Peel until I bumped into the jumpsuit on a space age tumblr :hearteyes: Definitely have to see the show now.
Also, Diana deserves more love from JBO.

The Steed/Peel years on the Avengers are some of my all-time favorite bits of entertainment. Diana was the MOST fabulous ever. It was an iconic duo, and I shipped them SOOOOOO hard when I first watched show on A&E reruns when I was a teenager.

They were both icons. For many years my brother had a wonderful sturdy black umbrella, which he'd bought in London and referred to as his "John Steed weapon".

On her Majesty's Secret Service is fraking good movie! Probably my favorite from James Bond franchise. But... Diana (who was bitchin' glorious) aside, it's Telly who I love, love, love,...

So I've not seen that many things with her in it, aside from The Great Muppet Caper, LOL, but my goodness, I never realized how much she and Natalie Dormer do look alike. Could definitely pass as her grandmother in real life.

How could I forget her in the Muppets! That was easily the first place I saw her. Still love that movie!
