Ugliest Mini ever – Hollywood responsible

Ugliest Mini ever – Hollywood responsible

Mini lifeball fq

What you’re looking at isn’t some cruel joke it is in fact a ‘unique’ Mini convertible prepared for a charity fundraiser – Life Ball 2009.

Mini has participated in the premier European AIDS fundraiser the past nine years, annually commissioning a different designer to reinterpret its fashionable retro-styled car. Previous editions were designed by Diesel, Versace  and Agent Provocateur, to name but a few. This year, however, Mini unwisely turned to Hollywood fashion icons The Blonds, known among the red carpet crowd for styling top pop stars. Their inspiration for the pink leopard-print 2009 Life Ball Mini, wasn’t the Pink Panther or a dropped bottle of laundry liquid but Katy Perry, the pop singer popularised by the song “I Kissed a Girl”, who will perform at the gala in Vienna on May 16, where the car will then be raffled off to raise money to combat HIV/AIDS. Great intentions poor execution.
