Outrage Over 'Princess Diana' Lingerie Ad

A Chinese lingerie company has unveiled a new range of underwear featuring a Princess of Wales lookalike model on the 13th anniversary of her death.

Under the slogan "Feel the romance of British royalty", the ad features the "Princess" wearing a tiara, necklace and blue bra and knickers as she plays a cello to a child.
The controversial poster has been splashed on giant billboards in shops and airports throughout China for millions to see.

The firm which has produced the lingerie, Jealousy International, is based in China's southern Guandong province.
On its website, the manufacturer has a section on the "Diana" range with the further slogan "Free your mind, free your style" and confusingly describes Diana's taste as "French Romantic".

The apparent attempt to exploit the Princess' image is the latest example of how companies have sought to capitalise on her popularity.

Britain has restrictions on using images of the Royal Family to promote products but is powerless to act against companies doing so abroad.

Clarence House, which represents Prince Charles, has declined to comment on the ad.

The outlook for the LA Clippers 2010-2011 Season

While the dark cloud never seems to go away for the Los Angeles Clippers. This season might finally be their break thru. Why? They have an All Star Center Chris Kaman, upcoming USA National guard Eric Gordon, 2 time all star Baron Davis, 1st Overall pic last year Blake Griffin, this year’s #8 pick Al-Farouq Aminu who was projected as early as 6 and the firing of Mike Dunleavy Sr. and hiring of Bull's ex coach Vinny Del Negro. So the talent and changes are definitely there for a playoff contending caliber team. But wait a second, sounds like a familiar song that owner Donald Sterling keeps playing for years and years. High Draft picks, unproven players with high talent and potential and a lot of hype so they can sell tickets to yet another losing season. What it will it really take to turn it around? A motivated Baron Davis to take the stronghold of the leader on a young team, as Eric Gordon mentioned in an interview recently in regards to playing with Davis. Eric quotes “It's good. We just need to get him motivated to really play. We all know he can play. As long as he stays motivated we know what he can do to help us." source: http://www.projectspurs.com/2010-articl
