SO FAR, SO CHIC
Watching Crocodile Dundee 2 this Christmas (I’m that cool), it dawned on me just how stylish Mick’s missus, Sue Charlton, played by real-life wife Linda Kozlowski, was in her nifty 40's-style fitted suits and chic ‘safari’ outfits.
Sue’s outfits in the original Crocodile Dundee film were just as timeless (barring the heinous black thong-back swimsuit, which, despite being an atrocity in itself, she actually carried off and even suited!), her daring red bodycon dress being the stand-out piece.
In the sequel, her black, nip-waisted skirt suit, white jacket worn with Veronica Lake waved hair, and especially, her Doctor Quin-esque Australian outback outfit of white linen shirt, flared skirt and twisted leather braces were all timelessly stylish, and this was 1988!
You’d be hard-pressed to find many film outfits from the 1980's that look anything resembling 'acceptable', let alone 'good' 22 years later. It makes me wonder if Linda styled herself.
