Everyone Loves: Dianna Rigg
Dame Enid Diana Elizabeth Rigg, DBE (born 20 July 1938)
The Avengers was the coolest show of the late 60’s and Diana was the coolest woman on TV. She was hot, beautiful and whip smart – something TV in the 1960’s didn’t feature too often. Diana has had a long carreer and still continues to act, primarily as the host of PBS’s Mystery Theater but for me she’ll always be Mrs. Emma Peel (M-Appeal was a British term for female beauty – “she had Male Appeal – M Appeal -Emma Peel”). Even as a little kid, there was just something about those leather suits and matching boots.
Emma’s suits were a popular part of the show. So popular infact they were commecially made for a short period of time – The Emma Peeler. According to the ad “… it’s made of stretch fabric called Crimplene and comes in 8 colors”.
