Australian farmer Brian Harrington, 60, believes that his ducks were talented models, even as good as human supermodels. To prove this to the world, he dressed his feathered friends in trendy outfits and let them waddle down the catwalk in the Pied Piper Duck Show at the famous Sydney Royal Easter Show. Considering the show has run for more than 30 years, it appears that he is right.

Ducks in hats, ducks in frocks, even ducks in wedding outfits are paraded around town, herded by trained dogs. In the catwalk the display their flair even as photographers blind their faces with flashing lights of stardom, wowing the thousands of onlookers in this annual country festival in Australia.
