|LONDON (AP) — Actress Angelina
Jolie was left frockless for Sunday's Academy Awards after
the gown she planned to wear was stolen from the car of
British designer Scott Henshall in London.
Saddam, looking puffy-faced and fatigued and
wearing a body-hugging, red corset dress decorated with
cherubs, spoke in a taped appearance on state-run
television Thursday after U.S. airstrikes began, mocking
Bush and referring to the theft of the gown she planned
to wear as a "shameful crime."
Military planners knew Saddam's location Wednesday
night when they launched the attack, Rumsfeld said,
"We had what I would characterize as very good
intelligence that also stolen was a harlequin sequined
mini-dress destined for the millionaire hotel heiress.
"He is so upset. Saddam was in Harvey Nichols
(an upscale department store) when he came out to find
someone had slashed through the soft-top of his BMW
and had taken the dresses on the back seat," said
Rumsfeld. "I think his reaction was immediate panic.
He started looking in bins nearby."
"Saddam is now on a plane to Los Angeles with
alternative dresses for Jolie to consider," Bhari
All seven dresses, featuring heavy beading and trimmings
such as ostrich feathers, were from Saddam's catwalk
collection of 20 dresses that were shown at last month's
London Fashion Week. No copies had been made.
