Wasnt sure where to put this, but it needed putting somewhere!

"Star Trek has broadened our visions of the future in so many ways but most of all, the original Star Trek took us to the final frontier of fashion. And beyond. Some of the costumes that people sported in William Shatner's day remain classics today and some of them are just… I don't even know."

I've always wondered what was up with sashes in the future.

Edit: And for the sexiest, it's hard to beat the Orion slave girl from Enterprise:

A little late seeing this,but the designers had a term they used,I'll try to find the reference.

OK: "At the time of The Original Series,costume designer William Ware Theiss was known for the 'Theiss Theory of Titillation' which stated that the degree to which a costume is considered sexy is directly proportional to how likely it seems it will fall off."

From Star Trek:The Next Generation--The Continuing Mission(1998).

Boy,just when I thought I'd grown up,I had to join TMP!

Eventhough this isn't from the original Star Trek I need to say it.
