Premiere - How I Won The War

How I Won The War premiered at the London Pavilion on October 18, 1967. The movie itself was a satirical anti-war statement, but besides that, the premiere was fabulous. All the Beatles and their girls were there, and Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix were in attendance. Paul and Jane opted for a quirky classic look: Paul wore a suit (which had a subtle wood pattern on the collar) and tie, while Jane wore a sparkly red dress. George and Pattie were slightly hippie: George wore a bright patterned jacket and scarf and Pattie wore a velvet jacket, long skirt, and green feather boa. Ringo donned a classic black suit and bowtie with a newly blonde Mo wearing a high-necked pastel purple dress. John and Cyn dressed the craziest of all: both wore shiny metallic fabrics, and John's suit was printed in elegant, contrasting, yet psychedelic patterns. Cynthia's mandarin-collared shift was striped in gold and silver.
