Italian Vogue Editor, Franca Sozzani, Customizes a MINI Roadster to Benefit AIDS Charity Event

MINI Roadster Life BallFranca Sozzani, chief Editor of Italian Vogue, has designed and presented her own MINI model to celebrate of the 20th anniversary of the Life Ball charity event.

MINI has worked with the Life Ball since 2001, offering up a new car each year for celebrities to customize for the event. This year, a MINI Roadster received the creative touch of Sozzani. She gave it a quirky gold-striped purple exterior, gloss black detailing and a floral design for the soft folding top.

Sozzani said of her inspiration, “The concept behind the MINI customization is inspired by the beautiful and elegant women who in the past used to wear a scarf draped around their head when driving a convertible,” Founder and organizer of the Life Ball, Gery Keszler, added “And thanks to the visual signature of Franca Sozzani, the this year’s MINI designed specially for the occasion has similarly become a lifestyle and design highlight in the name of this good cause,”

To compliment the Roadster’s fashion-inspired look, the Life Ball presented a 20-year retrospective of fashion, which gave famous models like Eva Padberg and Karolina Kurkova the chance to don blast-from-the-past looks on the runways. After the fashionable festivities, the MINi Roadster was auctioned off at the AIDS Solidarity Gala to raise 54,000 Euro for AIDS-fighting projects.
