  • Description

    The 45 shapely candidates for this year's "Miss World" title gathered at the Air France offices in London, Nov 4, to display their vital statistics in national costume at a champagne dinner. Among them were the contestants from Canada, Japan, Brazil, Luxembourg, France and Belgium.

    In his welcoming address, an Air France spokesman said: "It would obviously have been most difficult for our grandfathers to have assembled such a party. In those days by the time they were transported here their pristine beauty might already have faded. But today, in the jet age of the Caravelle, Comet and Boeing, we are able to bring these lovely girls to you from places as far apart as Tokyo and Brazil within 24 or 48 hours of their leaving home - as good as new. This is indeed a wonderful age."
