Church Fashion Show

In Westpoint, Devon priests in the Church of England have staged a fashion show for "religious clothing".

"The ecclesiastical event was a showcase of the latest designs of religious gowns in various colours, patterns, shapes and textures.

Several priests acted as 'models' to strut the cat walk in front of hundreds of clergy at the exhibition .

One model, The Rev James Hutchings, said: "I've done nothing like this before. It has certainly caused lots of laughs in the parish.

"My children thought it was hilarious. They probably won't ask me back. My pirouette was terrible."

All of which is terribly reminiscent of the famous "Clerical Fashion Show" in Fellini`s Roma (1972) above.
