The men's fashion show fea- turing men wearing ladies' ap- parel ended up with only six fashion plates but they made up for the few in number with their class and character. Participants in this event were as follows: Charles Swear (Charlene), a chic bru- nette, was dressed in red hot pants, white sweater, black boots and stockings and carried a beautiful black poodle wearing a big red bow on her jeweled collar. "Charlene's" tresses 'were styled to compliment her plump round face and rosebud complexion; Vernon Robbins (Vernine), a statuesque blonde, was quite fashionable in brown knit slacks with matching brown and white stripped top. Her ac- cessories included white san-' dals and bag, pearl necklace, bracelet, and ear rings. "Her" toenails were painted a ravish- ing "hot pink"; Joe Evans (Josephine), "her" brunette tresses done in a top fashion afro style, was about the sex- iest thing in town in "her" white hot pants and sweater, with floral, slit-to-waist over- skirt. "She" was really swing- in' in her stocking feet and those dark, shady eyes; Lamar Mi[chell (Letti), the only red- head in the crowd, was striking in "her" purple hot pants outfit" with black patent-leather boots and belt to match; Paul Mit- chell and son, Phillip (Paulette and Phillis), were absolutely ad- orable in identical hotpants out- fits with long floral overskirts. Their hair was frosted and most becoming; James Jordan (Ja- mie) was the only lady who chose the costume of yesterday. Jam- ie was dressed as a pioneer woman in a gay colorful print trimmed with wide, white rick- rack, apron and bonnet to match. "She" chose brogan-type shoes and carried "her" baby on hip in diapers. James was the winner of $50 for "her" yes- teryear costume. Charline Sweatt and Paulette Mitchell shared the other $50 prize for their 'now' fashions. Johnny Smith acted as Mas- ter of Ceremonies. Make-up and wigs were the art work of Mrs. Katherine Cannon and Mrs. Paul Mitchell. Mrs. Lucille Cox and Mrs. Dorothy Holder are co- chairman of the beauty contests.
