Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks at Place Vendome
Italian luxury brand Valentino showed its racing colors for a four-day, 1,600km, all-female rally between Venice, Italy and London, England. This is the third annual tour for “Cash & Rocket”.
This year the race supported three African non-profits: OrphanAid Africa, Shine on Sierra Leone and Sumbandila.
Seventy women from the fashion world, art, film and finance teamed up to put pedal to the metal for a good cause. The 2014 “Cash & Rocket” race teams headed off from Piazza San Marco in Venice on Thursday, June 5, 2014 and, arrived in London on Sunday, June 8, 2014 with stopovers in Geneva, Switzerland and Paris, France.
On Saturday evening 35 lipstick red sports cars from top luxury manufacturers including Maserati, Bentley, Mercedes, Porsche, Jaguar, Ferrari and Aston Martin, rolled into Place Vendôme in the center of Paris a tad fashionably late.
Their celebrity drivers included former Victoria’s Secret ‘Angel’ Selita Ebanks, model Daisy Lowe and Topshop heiress Chloe Green.
Valentino creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri and Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani were also a dynamic duo driving team in one of the cars together.
