Flashback Friday: The day the refined Julia Sugarbaker accidentally mooned Atlanta on “Designing Women”
Julia Sugarbaker (played by the late, great Dixie Carter) is an elegant, outspoken liberal intellectual who had lived her life with refined dignity.
Until the fashion show.
Julia took to the runway of the charity event unaware that her dress was tucked up into her underwear.
What I love about this clip is how utterly humiliated Julia is. Dixie Carter just plays it brilliantly, as usual. It was not often we saw Julia in such a vulnerable position since she was the Alpha Female in this group usually pointing out how silly the others were being.
My favorite exchange is this:
Julia: What I don’t understand is why didn’t somebody tell me?”
Suzanne: “What I don’t understand is where were your underwear?”
Enjoy this hilarious scene from Designing Women!
