Resident fashionista Jeanne Little is beyond excited as the finalists in the Glad Bag Fashion Show parade for the audience.

Always ingenious with the materials she uses, as we see in her hats made out of foods, Little put the challenge out to the audience to design fashion using only Glad-brand plastic material - from rubbish bags to Glad Wrap and everything in between.

Five thousand entries later, the finalists vie for a new car. Jeanne Little is the chairperson and the judges are fashion designer Prue Acton OBE, Andrew Harris and 1983's Miss Australia, Lisa Cornelius.

Little's unique voice, over-the-top personality, false eyelashes and eccentric fashion sense endeared her to Australian audiences. She won a Gold Logie in 1977 for her work on The Mike Walsh Show.
