Her privates were covered no different than wearing a bikini I would think

Everyone is entitled to MY opinion

Susan was wearing Gary's shirt (which was as long as a mini dress) over his sleeveless undershirt and rolled up boxer shorts. To this I believe she had added a garter and stockings. So she had on plenty of clothing, it was just unusual stuff...that's one of the things that made people stare at her.

Remember, she walked past the identical triplet guys? I thought that was funny, because their similarity made her stare at them while her crazy outfit/sex appeal made them stare at her.

There's more to that bit than meets the eye: To Susan, the rest of the "normal" world all looks the same! That stuff bores her!

Susan's confidence just radiated sex appeal (at least for me!). Of all the characters she was the only one that seemed to have a handle on everything. Probably because of her extensive traveling & managing to do so on next to nothing. Like she tells Gary after she finds out that Roberta diligently read the personals: "well I'm here, and I'm the only one who's thinking!"

Re: Susan walking to th newspaper office in her lingerie?!

I had never seen this movie straight through, start to finish, before, until last night. I saw the identical triplet guys and did a double take. Not because they're triplets, mind you, but because they had their 15 minutes of fame all those years ago.

The three of them were actually separated at birth and adopted into different families. Two of them found each other at a community college or something, when mutual friends started getting them confused, not realizing there were two separate people. That encounter got publicized, and the third one heard about it.




I asked the doctor to take your picture so I can look at you from inside as well.

No. Hardly. She wore, iirc, a man's button-down shirt, boxers, her garters, and a wife-beater with bra. How is that indecent exposure? What was exposed?

Re: Susan walking to th newspaper office in her lingerie?!

I'm pretty sure I heard that you are actually allowed to be nude in New York

Re: Susan walking to th newspaper office in her lingerie?!

She was quite attractive so probably not. lol And you couldn't really see much of anything.

Actually it only appears like she's wearing very little because of the stockings and the garters that are holding it up that peep out from beneath the shirt. Madonna is wearing a tank-top (wife beater) and boxer shorts, under the long sleeve shirt.

She looked fabulous in that little get-up. And remember in the 80s, the trend for women was wearing lingerie as outer-wear (trend started by Madonna and others) and this was in the village where fashion was made from anything and everything.

There's a book called "Wild Style" by Cyn. Zarco and Robert Hofler that document the real people of NYC's Village scene in the 80s. The book is out-of-print but if you can find it pick it up! It shows some really creative outfits made from surplus, thrift shops, five and dimes and vintage clothes .

But'cha Y'Are, Blanche! Y'Are In That Chair!

Re: Susan walking to th newspaper office in her lingerie?!

Not at all. If she was going to get arrested for indecent exposure that would have been when she walked to the bus station in a see-through black lace and underneath it only see-through lace lingerie.

Re: Susan walking to th newspaper office in her lingerie?!

and we, being 14 year old girls at the time, totally copied that "style" lol...
