TV actress Suzy Parker: two fashion designers are perfect for her look - Chanel in Paris and Ellen Brooke of Sportswear Couture in America


TV and screen actress Suzy Parker tells us that two fashion designers are perfect for her look-Chanel in Paris and Ellen Brooke of Sportswear Couture in America. (TV Guide Magazine, 1964, Mass.)

Above: Suzy in two versions of Ellen Brooke's famous fisherman's shirtdress. I shocking-pink silk, is but one of many she has in a variety of colors. Ellen Brooke made the same dress in lace, and added a matching kerchief for Suzy's wedding (she's Mrs. Bradford Dillman). Dress can be sashed or not, and in silk it's $90. Her enamel-and-diamond bracelets and pins are by David Webb. 

Suzy's own combination of separates by Ellen Brooke. Siamese-pink silk pants are worn under an orange tunic. The tunic buttons down one side, stops just short of the knee. The silk pants, beautifully cut for perfect fit, are about $40. The tunic is also about $40.

Look familiar? Suzy in the fisherman's shirt that started the whole wonderful look... in beige Irish linen and lace. The price, about $80. Marvelous for the beach, just long enough to cover her pink cotton Bikini, as shown here... or over pants or long evening skirt. All Suzy's coiffures, from this casual one to the elegant one, are by Enrico Caruso, New York.
