  • Description

    PRESIDENT KENNEDY AND THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH HAVE FOUND A NEW ROLE IN LIFE. THEY ARE ADVERTISING MEN'S CLOTHES IN SHOPS THROUGHOUT BRITAIN. THE TWO MEN ARE NOT DOING THE JOB THEMSELVES - DUMMIES ARE STANDING IN FOR THEM.

    THE MODELS ARE PRODUCED BY A LONDON DESIGNER WHO HAS INSPIRED BY THE EFFORTS OF PROMINENT PERSONALITIES TO PRODUCE FAVOURABLE IMAGES OF THEMSELVES. "I DIDN'T WANT TO MAKE PERFECT REPRODUCTIONS," SAYS THE DESIGNER. "I WANTED THEM JUST CLOSE ENOUGH TO MAKE PEOPLE STOP AND STARE."
    IN THE REGENT STREET, LONDON, BRANCH OF A MULTIPLE TAILORING FIRM, PRESIDENT AND PRINCE WERE MODELLING READY-TO-WEAR CLOTHES - UNTIL TODAY (MONDAY). THEY'VE NOW BEEN REMOVED TO AVOID CONTROVERSY, FOLLOWING THE VISIT OF A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE LORD CHAMBERLAIN, WATCHDOG OF PUBLIC MORALS AND PROTOCOL.

    THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH IS ALSO ON SHOW IN A LONDON ART GALLERY. HE'S PICTURED IN HIS UNDERWEAR, AND THE PAINTING IS UP FOR SALE AT GBP47. IT IS ONE OF THREE PICTURES OF THE DUKE IN THE FIRST EXHIBITION OF WORK BY BARRY FANTONI, A 22-YEAR-OLD LONDON ARTIST.

    DISPLAYED AROUND THE DUKE IN THE PICTURE ARE SOME OF HIS MORE FAMILIAR CHANGES OF DRESS - NAVAL, POLO, KILT, YACHTING AND BOY SCOUTS'.
