Frayed’s Sarah Kendall details how Princess Diana inspired her outfits | Television & Radio | Showbiz and television
Australian comedian Sarah Kendall will soon be back on screens with the second series of her hit comedy-drama Frayed. Set in the late 80s, the Sky One show follows the adventures of a wealthy London housewife who is forced to return to her hometown of Newcastle, Australia. Sarah plays the lead role of Sammy Cooper in the series and has donned a range of quirky period costumes, some of which were inspired by the late Princess Royal Diana.
Chatting exclusively with Express.co.uk, Sarah shared details of the costumes used in the comedy series.
She revealed that some of the outfits were made from scratch and based on the looks of famous people from the 80s.
“There was an outfit based on when Princess Diana took part in a day of athletics when the boys were very young,” Sarah revealed.
She continued: “It was the sprint outfit and then they said, ‘We found a template and we’re going to base this outfit on that.’

Sarah commented, “We didn’t want to lean into silly outfits too much.
“You want it to look like the 80s, you don’t want it to look like an 80s parody.
“As soon as it looks like an 80s parody, it works on jokes, it works on emotions, you know, it works on reality.
“So too many hyper colors and fanny packs… not everyone was wearing that,” she remarked.
