CONTRARY to the name of her most famous role, Doris Day was no plain Jane as her bold, bright and breezy fashion choices prove.

The Calamity Jane actress, who passed away at the age of 97 on Monday, was a style icon, inspiring the wardrobes of women who grew up watching her hit films.

From boiler suits to neck ties, polka dots, double denim and cape coats, despite her wholesome girl-next-door image, Doris has always been daring with her dress decisions.

The result is decades of red carpet, catwalk and casual style inspiration.

Lynsey Clarke takes a look at the celebs who are following the superstar’s style.
