1965: Jean Shrimpton at the 1965 Melbourne Cup where she sparked off a scandal with her minidress (designed by Colin Rolfe). Not only was it five inches above her knees, she further scandalised Australians by not wearing stockings (nor gloves). 'I was surrounded by cameramen, all on their knees like proposing Victorian swains, shooting upwards to make my skirt look even shorter. I had no idea this was going to happen - this was publicity that I had certainly not planned." KA
