Peel’s avant-garde fashions, featuring bold accents and high-contrast geometric patterns, emphasised her youthful, contemporary personality. Regarded as an icon of modern England of the Sixties the character is often remembered for the Catsuit worn by Rigg in the first series. It is said, that Rigg disliked wearing leather, so that the designer used softer stretch jersey and PVC  catsuits for her instead.

While Rigg had chosen to leave the series for a number of reasons, one of which was to accept a role in the James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service it is said that during her first series, Rigg eventually learned that she was making less than the cameraman! Afterwards her salary was at least tripled and combined with her loyalty to John Macnee, alias John Steed, the other main actor.
