Just in case you couldn't see me in the 1st pic.
Cinnamon Carter was a fashion model turned covert operator who lured men with her glamour, but like Emma Peel of The Avengers was no slouch in the brains department. These stills from season 1 (1966) show an American MOD wardrobe on a mature woman who can, frankly, wear just about anything and get away with it.
While grabbing these stills I noticed that in the opening scenes where the group get together to discuss the upcoming operation she aways white, black or both (Emma Peel again). Throughout the operations she always wears colours unless the part calls for a uniform. The more conservative characters she has to play wear a glam but slightly more conventional wardrobe.
