I'd say again fairly well remembered D after all this time.
As it happens this is a routine that has come up in conversation in the past being one that Sue remembers well. The silver headdresses were quiet large, a sort of upright version of Lady Liberty's crown but resembling more the spiked rays of a sun, although the rest of their costume comprised a long black and silver dress rather than a swimsuit, the dresses being a bit similar in design to the 'Boogie On Reggae Woman' costumes with the draped/wrap around effect.
As for the dance itself it was quite static with lots of dramatic style frozen poses and with some other cut away 'frozen' shots superimposed over the top resulting in quite a graphic effect. A bit like the background image of the Talking Heads number 'Once in a Lifetime '.
Been meaning to post this for a while but kept forgetting or wasn't near a comp.
Elsewhere on the blog there is a suggestion that the ladies clashed their headwear as part of this routine. Now that wasn't the case and to partially quote one of the dancers involved, "'Fame' ...... There was no clashing of 'headdresses ' either during or after the routine ! ......For starters they were too spiky, and also we were not charging around ...... The routine was more static , a case of dance and dance to a statuesque pose ..... the headdresses were very Statue of Liberty in style and shape ...... Rather large and not particularly comfortable to wear .........
The head-dresses did not clash but came very near it - almost six inches apart. I remember the dance so well and still do the dance with other people at work do's. They faced other and took strides to the right.
Everywhere, wherever you look, manipulation rearing it's head.
