Welch's Bustier Sets Off Airport Alarms
Veteran actress Raquel Welch turned heads at a U.S. airport security checkpoint last week (ends07Mar10) - after her bustier set off metal detectors.
The former Hollywood pin-up activated alarms after arriving at Chicago's O'Hare International airport, and held up the security checkpoint line while a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agent patted down her garments in full view of waiting passengers.
According to the New York Post, the agent blamed the problem on the boning in Welch's bustier.
But a spokesperson for Welch has laughed off the incident, adding, "She probably isn't going to fly in a bustier anymore."
