The first Tussaud statues in 1964 showed the emergent musicians, immaculate and boyish, in neckties and pale gray suits edged in black. A set of Beatle waxworks about a year later had John. Paul and George looking like young bankers, but Ringo revealed things to come with a black turtleneck shirt. By 1967. the wax dummies looked considerably older, with Lennon in granny-style steel spectacles and flowered pants. McCartney was striped like a candy cane from head to foot. Ringo sported a medallion around his neck and a belt buckle as big as a cricket ball. Harrison wore a demure but antique-cut velvet suit and all lour had drooping mustaches. Photographs from that era show them in wild hair, brocades and beads, like Oriental potentates gone psychedelic. In October the latest Beatle figures went on display at Tussaud's. almost sedate by comparison. All wore slightly hippie-looking suits and unorthodox shirts but by now so does half the younger population of London, and nobody here pays much attention to the Beatles' clothes anymore. But the British record industry paid plenty of attention when Lennon's latest disc. "The Two Virgins." came out. Lennon and his Japanese girl friend Yoko Ono graced the cover in the altogether-front and rear view. When agencies refused to advertise the album. Beatle executive Derek Taylor protested: "Has anyone ever taken offense at Adam and Een" By DAVID LANCASHIRE LONDON (API - The story of the Beatles is a tale of rags to riches, in more ways than one. When they played in German beat clubs in 1960. using a men's lavatory for a dressing room, they wore black leather jackets, tight black jeans and pompadour haircuts. They looked scruffy and they earned a few Deutschemarks a night. When manager Brian Epstein changed their image in 1962 he put them in neat, lapel-less suits and carefully-moulded hairdos. They grossed $1504.000 for a single performance. Now that they've got the riches, some critics contend, the Beatles are going back to rags. Paul McCartney shows up in a floppy T-shirt. Ringo Starr and George Harrison appear in embroidered fur jackts. looking like Tibetan yak-herders. And John Lennon has attained the ultimate in informal dress his latest record cover shows him stark naked. lieatle fashions which at one point changed so rapidly that the pop group hired their own designers and opened up a clothing shop to keep up with the variations-are the despair of commercial clothes manufacturers. But the Beatles themselves don't care about setting trends. "There is no attempt to influence fashion by wearing the clothes they do. "says the quartet's official spokesman. Tony Barrow. "II people want to dress like the Beatles, it's up to them-and there's no harm done." Paul. John. George and Ringo have topped the pop music charts since 1964 but they've never come close to the list of the world's best-dressed men. Esquire magazine went as far as accusing them of putting an end to manly elegance by preferring tlamboyance to fit. and trickery to taste. "They dress that way because they want to." says Barrow. "There is no gimmick and there is no purpose in it. "They aren't trying to please anyone but themselves." Lennon objected to the "neat" image even in 1962 saying: "It isn't us." The change from unkempt beatnik style to careful coiffures, copied by teen-agers from New York to New Zealand, began with a Beatle who died six years ago. Stuart Sut-cliffe. His German girl friend trimmed his hair and dressed him in a black leather suit, and the image that swept the world started taking shape. Before Sutclifle reduced the rest of the group to giggles by striding onstage in his leather pants, the others wore jeans so tight they called them "drainies" drain pipes. Lennon recalls that 11 years ago he had to wear ordinary trousers over his jeans before his aunt would let him out of the house. The easiest way to trace the switches in Beatle fashion is to watch Madame Tussaud's Waxworks. There, dummies of the pop millionaires, housed together with celebrities from Winston Churchill to Mao Tse-tung, are kept clothed in up-to-date costumes. Real-life Beatles are a rare sight since MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS NOW PHONE 833-5691 IIOWLEY'S RESTAURAIIT 4700 SOUTH DIXIE WEST PALM BEACH RE6TAURAMT trr OYAL For reservations telephone m-'li:i2 OINCIANA 1 1 t I Ml I!
