“Your impact has been incredible. I love you so much. We will see you on the road again and we will all be together again. Yours from the first moment I saw you and forever! Your Danny, your John!

Newton-John played Sandy Goodie-two-shoes in Fatbut arguably the film’s most iconic scene is the finale where Sandy walks out wearing an all-leather look.

Talk to vanity lounge in 2016 about the transformation, Newton-John said, “It was so over the top and something that really worried me.

“But when it happened, it was just this amazing feeling. It was very freeing. Not just for Sandy, but for me too. Because I’ve always been the girl next door. And then I’m walked into this trailer with these guys and they put me in this outfit and hair and I came out to show Randal [Kleiser, Grease’s director], and the whole crew turned around. And the look on their faces! I remember thinking, “Oh my God, I did this all wrong.”

“When I was young and saw Olivia Newton-John appear onscreen in the black outfit at the end of Grease, the world changed for me,” one person wrote.

A third said: “This outfit and character has mesmerized me since I was a little girl. Thank you for everything RIP Olivia Newton John.

While another said: “This outfit will always be the held on to me! It has shaped my fashion style since I was about three years old.
