An unusual party has been given in Paris by the eccentric pop singer Alice Cooper. Mr Cooper had asked his 33 guests to come dressed as Raquel Welch. Says a spokesman for Mr Cooper, who has had two records in the Top Twenty recently: "There were masses of aristocrats and princesses. Bettina was there looking divine in a green wig. Jeanne Moreau, Omar Sharif and Charlie Watts of The Rolling Stones, were also there. Many of the guests wore wigs - green ones, pink ones and violet ones." A guest adds this account: "Omar was marvellous. He came as Raquel in the part of Myra Breckinbridge. But he looked more like Groucho Marx. A lot of people came as Raquel in the part of Kansas City Bomber. You've never seen so many well-built ladies on roller skates in your life. They caused chaos."One person was conspicuous in her absence at the party. The real Raquel Welch. She was not invited."
