Sounds like the whole thing started because of Wimbledon's famous color ban. LOL@ it being debated in Parliament!



When Wimbledon officials denied Gertrude "Gussy" Moran's request to wear colors in 1950 she didn't get mad, she got even. Designer Ted Tinling created an outfit that shocked the championships: lace-trimmed panties for "Gorgeous Gussy". The undergarment was front-page news worldwide, as well as the subject of debate in Parliament.
