GOING FOR A THONG THIS pounds 25k G-STRING.
A SECURITY guard keeps a close eye on Britain's most expensive G-string worth pounds 25,000.
Edinburgh's Princes Street was brought to a standstill as crowds gathered to get a peek at the unique diamond-studded undies at Jenners department store yesterday.
But prospective owners will nothave to splash out pounds 25,000 to buy the saucyunderwear. Customers who buy Gossard's limited edition Jewel GString featuring Swarovski crystal and selling for pounds 20 will get a special number which gives them the chance to win the diamond-encrusted thong.
The G-string, made by a London jeweller for lingerie firm Gossard, isset in 18-carat gold with 42 diamonds. Gossard's Jill Perks said: ``This is theultimatebling string. Wewerekeen to do something for New Year which would capture people's imagination.''
Security man Alex MacDonald, who had the job of guarding the thong worn by French model Sybille Gerbhardt, was happy enough. He said: ``It sure beats chasing shoplifters.''
